Abstract
BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) can occur even after the correction of mitral valve (MV) pathology in patients who have pre-operative sinus rhythm and undergo MV surgery. However, the factors associated with the occurrence of AF after MV surgery are still unclear. The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the factors determining the occurrence of permanent AF after MV surgery in patients with preoperative sinus rhythm who underwent MV surgery. METHODS: Four hundred and forty-two patients (mean age 46 +/- 12, 190 men) who underwent MV surgery and sinus rhythm were investigated retrospectively. Transthoracic echocardiography was performed before and after MV surgery at the time of dismissal. RESULTS: Permanent post-operative AF occurred in 81 (18%) patients even after successful MV surgery and preoperative sinus rhythm. It was more common in rheumatic etiology, a presence of mitral stenosis, lower pre- and post-operative left ventricular ejection fraction, higher post-operative mean diastolic pressure gradient across mitral prosthesis, larger post-operative left atrial volume index (LAVI) and lesser degrees of reduction in LAVI after surgery. In multiple regression analysis, post-operative LAVI was found to be an independent predictor for occurrence of AF. Post-operative LAVI > 39 ml/m2 was the cut-off value for best prediction of new onset permanent AF (sensitivity: 79%, AUC: 0.762, SE: 0.051, p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: New-onset permanent post-operative AF is not uncommon, even after successful MV surgery despite pre-operative sinus rhythm. Larger post-operative LAVI was an independent predictor for the occurrence of AF.
