OBJECTIVE: This article presents a study of postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) and its long-term effects on mortality and heart rhythm.

METHODS: The study cohort consisted of 571 patients with no history of AF who underwent primary aortocoronary bypass surgery from 1999 to 2000. Postoperative AF occurred in 165/571 patients (28.9%). After a median follow-up of 6 years, questionnaires were obtained from 91.6% of surviving patients and an electrocardiogram (ECG) from 88.6% of all patients. Data from hospitalisations due to arrhythmia or stroke during follow-up were analysed. The causes of death were obtained for deceased patients.

RESULTS: In postoperative AF patients, 25.4% had atrial fibrillation at follow-up compared with 3.6% of patients with no AF at surgery (p<0.001). An episode of postoperative AF was the strongest independent risk factor for development of late AF, with an adjusted risk ratio of 8.31 (95% confidence interval (CI) 4.20-16.43). Mortality was 29.7% (49 deaths/165 patients) in the AF group and 14.8% (60 deaths/406 patients) in the non-AF group (p<0.001). Death due to cerebral ischaemia was more common in the postoperative AF group (4.2% vs 0.2%, p<0.001), as was death due to myocardial infarction (6.7% vs 3.0%, p=0.041). Postoperative AF was an age-independent risk factor for late mortality, with an adjusted hazard ratio of 1.57 (95% CI 1.05-2.34).

CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative AF patients have an eightfold increased risk of developing AF in the future, and a doubled long-term cardiovascular mortality.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased risk of stroke, heart failure and cardiovascular death. Initial treatment focuses on rhythm or rate control and anticoagulation after risk assessment. Catheter abla-tion (CA) is an option in highly symptomatic patients but is less effective in long-standing persistent AF(LSPAF). Total endoscopic ablation is an alternative, but its clinical role needs further evaluation. In patients undergoing aortocoronary bypass graft (CABG) surgery, up to 9 % present with preoperative AF. One-third experience postoperative AF, which is associated with increased hospital stay, risk of stroke and decreased long-term survival. The long-term effects on heart rhythm have not been studied.

Methods and Results: 571 patients undergoing CABG from 1999 to 2000 were followed for six years. Postoperative AF was the strongest independent risk factor for late AF and an age-independent risk factor for late mortality. 615 pa-tients from the same cohort, including patients with preoperative AF, were fol-lowed up at 15 years. Death due to cerebral ischaemia, heart failure and sudden death were most common in the pre- and postoperative AF groups. The presence of pre- or postoperative AF was an independent risk factor for late mortality.

In our first ten patients, total endoscopic ablation of AF using a right-sided unilateral approach was feasible and safe with acceptable results. 36 patients with symptomatic LSPAF were then randomized to total endoscopic ablation or rate control. Loop recorders were implanted in all patients. In the control group, all patients were in permanent AF for 12 months. In the ablation group, 12/15 patients (80%) were in SR without antiarrhythmic drugs at 12 months. Median freedom of AF at 3–12 months was 95%, and 8/15 (53%) had an AF burden of < 5%. Myocardial function, physical working capacity(PWC) and subjective physical and mental health improved.

Conclusions: Postoperative AF patients have an eightfold increased risk of future AF and a doubled long-term cardiovascular mortality. Both pre- or post-operative AF in CABG patients is a major risk factor for late cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Total endoscopic ablation of AF is feasible and safe. In patients with LSPAF, it significantly reduced AF burden at 12 months compared with controls. Myocardial function, PWC and subjective physical and mental health improved.
