OBJECTIVE The Cox maze III procedure includes isolation of the pulmonary veins and multiple incisions in both atria in what corresponds to partial autotransplantation and partial denervation of the heart. The aim of this prospective longitudinal study was to identify physiologic effects of reinnervation on changes in heart rate at rest and in response to various stimulations and on atrial function after the Cox maze III procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS Power spectral analysis of heart rate… CONTINUE READING
