Prognostic value of left atrial expansion index and exercise-induced change in atrial natriuretic peptide as long-term predictors of atrial fibrillation recurrence
EP Europace, 06/12/2012
Govindan M et al. – Left atrial expansion index and exercise–induced atrial natriuretic peptide change show promise as predictors of AFR after cardioversion. These predictors may identify patients at an early stage in their disease with intact neurohumoral feedback systems and less advanced atrial remodelling. Further studies are required to confirm these findings.
