Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) occurs in up to 50% of patients after open-coronary heart surgery. Incidence of arrhythmia has now not changed, regardless of upgrades in anesthetic and surgical techniques and proof indicates its incidence may be growing [1]. It normally has a tendency to arise within 3 to 4 days postoperatively and, in a minority of cases, it is able to result in beside the point tachycardia, hypotension, heart failure, and a likely increase in the chance of cerebrovascular accidents [2]. Age has been recognized as one of the maximum powerful contributing risk component for AF after open-coronary heart surgery [3].
