OBJECTIVES: Observational studies identified increased age, left atrial (LA) size, type and duration of atrial fibrillation (AF) as independent predictors for failure of AF surgical ablation. Rhythm at discharge following the Cox maze (CM) procedure for AF was never considered a significant predictor of success. The purposes of this study were to: (i) Determine the association of sinus rhythm (SR) at discharge and maintenance of SR. (ii) Identify the variables associated with discharge rhythm… Expand
