OBJECTIVE It has been recently reported that atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with inflammation and inflammatory cytokines, and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) might be of anti-inflammatory effects. This study was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of PUFAs on AF in a canine sterile pericarditis model. METHODS 20 dogs were randomly assigned to two groups: control group (10 dogs) and PUFA treatment group (10 dogs), in which sterile pericarditis was created by open-chest… CONTINUE READING
