Abstract

The mechanism of AF after CABG is not well defined and is probably multifactorial. However, this study demonstrated that antagonism of the adenosine A1 receptor can promptly convert many of these patients back to sinus rhythm, and thereby implicates endogenously released adenosine in a mechanistic role for inciting early (<48 h) post-CABG AF.
