Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Aortic regurgitation, conduction disturbances, increased myocardial fibrosis and pericarditis could be seen in ankylosing spondylitis (AS). However, less attention has been paid to supraventricular arrhythmias (SVA) and atrial conduction system changes. We aimed to assess SVA and conduction system changes in patients with AS.
