Predictive Factors for Post - Operative Atrial Fibrillation after By - Pass Surgery

Mirjeta Guni [4] | Juliana Karanxha [4] | Monika Dede [3]


Abstract: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a supraventricular tachyarrhythmia characterized by uncoordinated atrial activation with subsequent deterioration of mechanical function. Atrial fibrillation (AF) occurs in 20% till 40% of patients, mainly occurring in 2 - 4 days after coronary artery bypass grafting CABG. Despite the absence of universal pathophysiological concept describing POAF development, it is assumed that it is based on a combination of altering factors of local and systemic inflammation. This study aims to explore the risk factors of new - onset FOAP after CABG. In our study, significant independent predictors of atrial fibrillation were found LA, Hypertension and BMI>31that can increase the incidence of atrial fibrillations after coronary artery bypass grafting with subsequent impact on hemodynamic stability, thromboembolic events and the hospital stay.


Keywords: Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG); atrial fibrillation (AF)
