Abstract

Background: AF is a frequent arrhythmia complicating CABG, and it is well known that dispersion and prolongation of P wave increases the risk of AF. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of magnesium (Mg) treatment on P-wave duration and dispersion in patients undergoing CABG.
