Abstract

Objective: The incidence of paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence is high and unpredictable. in this study, a novel noninvasive method that was thought to reflect the interatrial. conduction time was investigated to predict AF recurrence. This method was on the basis of the measurement of time interval from initiation of the electrocardiographic P wave to the start of left atrial (LA) appendage (LAA) ejection How (P-LAA).
