Abstract

To evaluate the preoperative presence of C-reactive protein (CRP) and troponin T(hs-TnT) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in order to better clarify the role of atrial inflammation and/or myocardial ischemia in the development of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF).
