Abstract

Preoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) increases risk of stroke, heart failure, and all-cause mortality after cardiac surgery. Despite encouraging results and guideline recommendations, surgical ablation (SA) for AF concomitant with other heart surgery remains low. In the current study we aimed to address the long-term mortality after SA concomitant with cardiac surgery.
