To Different factors create an environment in which HF predisposes to AF and AF exacerbates HF. Although therapeutic options for AF are varied, their effect on prognosis remains unknown.

To the incidence of AF for the first year following CABG is higher in patients <70 years but not in those >70 years when compared with the general population. AF was associated to postoperative infection and renal dysfunction

To incidence rate of chronic AF was 1.7 per 1,000 person-years, and increased markedly with age. The major risk factors were age, high BMI, excessive alcohol consumption, and prior cardiovascular comorbidity. 40% did not receive either warfarin or aspirin
