Lau, Dennis H.; Middeldorp, Melissa E.; Brooks, Anthony G.; Ganesan, Anand N.; Roberts-Thomson, Kurt C.; Stiles, Martin K.; Leong, Darryl P.; Abed, Hany S.; Lim, Han S.; Wong, Christopher X.; Willoughby, Scott R.; Young, Glenn D.; Kalman, Jonathan M.; Abhayaratna, Walter; Sanders, Prashanthan


BACKGROUND Recent community-based research has linked aortic stiffness to the development of atrial fibrillation. We posit that aortic stiffness contributes to adverse atrial remodeling leading to the persistence of atrial fibrillation following catheter ablation in lone atrial fibrillation patients, despite the absence of apparent structural heart disease. Here, we aim to evaluate aortic stiffness in lone atrial fibrillation patients and determine its association with arrhythmia recurrence...[Show more]
