Abstract

Objective: Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia observed in the clinical practice. Pulmonary vein isolation is a well established treatment option for atrial fibrillation but is limited by recurrence. Previous studies have demonstrated that abnormal P wave indices were associated with adverse atrial remodeling and its role in predicting atrial fibrillation recurrence. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the place of a novel index as we named P wave duration-to-amplitude ratio in predicting the recurrence of atrial fibrillation.
