Abstract

The relation between left ventricular filling pattern and the occurrence of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation was evaluated using Doppler echocardiography in a prospective series of 157 patients with acute myocardial infarction, Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation after acute myocardial infarction was often associated with a higher restrictive filling pattern.
