Özet

OBJECTIVES: Atrial fibrillation (AF) after cardiac surgery has been reported to be approximately 30%, making it one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality post surgery. Although various clinical and laboratory predictors and underlying mechanisms progressing to postoperative AF have been proposed, the role of ischaemia in pathogenesis is doubtful. In this study, the association of coronary collateral circulation (CCC) and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) with the development of postoperative AF was investigated.
