Biochemical Marker to Predict the Recurrence of Atrial Fibrillation After Surgical Maze Procedure
The role of plasma NT-proBNP, hsCRP, TIMP-1(Tissue inhibitors of MetalloProteinase-1),TGF-b, MMP-3(Matrix MetalloProteinase-3), and pro-MMP-1 in predicting the recurrence of AF after surgical Maze procedure.
The association of expression of CTGF, TGF-b, BNP, ANP, collagen-1, and collagen-3 in LA with the recurrence of AF after surgical Maze procedure.
