Özet

Backround: P-wave dispersion (P dispersion), defined as the difference between the maximum and the minimum P-wave duration (P minimum), and maximum P-wave duration (P maximum) have been used to evaluate the discontinuous propagation of sinus impulse and the prolongation of atrial conduction time respectively. The aim of this study was to investigate whether early assessment of P dispersion predicts paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with acute anterior wall myocardial infarction (MI).
