Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The circadian variation of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) was studied in 67 patients who received a dual-chamber pacemaker 3 months before a planned atrioventricular node ablation. A distinct circadian variation of AF was observed with 2 time peaks in initiation (1 in the early morning and 1 in the early evening hours), which was modulated by atrial pacing, the duration of AF, and the use of beta-adrenergic blocking agents.
