Abstract

Recent evidence supports the important role of inflammation in atrial fibrillation (AF) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and there is growing evidence that statin has cardiac antiarrhythmic effects. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of preoperative statins in preventing AF after CABG in a longitudinal observational study.
