Özet

Objective: Atrial fibrosis is one of the main components of atrial fibrillation (AF) pathophysiology and culminates in structural, electrical and contractile remodelling. Fibronectin is one of the well-known mediators of fibrogenesis. However, the association of plasma fibronectin with atrial remodelling has not been studied previously. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the relationship between plasma fibronectin level and atrial electrical and structural remodelling in patients with lone paroxysmal AF.
