AIMS Previous studies evidenced that increased monocyte count or activity and lower high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels were associated with more prevalent atrial fibrillation (AF) which attributed to pro-inflammatory and pro-oxidant effects. Monocyte-to-HDL ratio (M/H ratio) is a recently emerged indicator of inflammation and oxidative stress which have been only studied in patients with chronic kidney disease. We aimed to investigate the prognostic impact of M/H ratio on AF… CONTINUE READING
