Abstract

Aim: To examine the effects of sinus rhythm (SR) restoration on N-Terminal pro-BNP (NTP-BNP) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Methods: Subjects with paroxysmal and persistent AF and absence of organic heart disease were prospectively studied. Chemical or electrical restoration of SR was attempted within 48 hours (n = 37) or >3 weeks (n = 73). Clinical and laboratory (NTP-BNP, 72-hour Holter monitor, and electrocardiogram) assessment were obtained at baseline and at 1, 30, and 180 days after SR restoration. Patients were divided into three predefined "outcome groups": (a) maintenance of SR for 1 month, (b) SR with recurrent paroxysmal AF (PaAF), and (c) early (
