Özet

Background: Onset of atrial fibrillation in hypertensive patients is usually associated with a high occurrence of cardiovascular complications. Therefore, it is important to assess non-invasively the risk of developing paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) in hypertensive patients during sinus rhythm. This study was undertaken to determine if hypertensive patients with history of PAF could be identified while in sinus rhythm by measurement of signal-averaged ECG P-wave duration.
