  Purpose

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia post coronary bypass surgery, currently B-blockers are the class I indication to prevent AF post CABG. We decide to evaluate use of propranolol and amiodarone separately and together to find a better prophylaxis for AF peri-CABG


Condition Intervention
Atrial Fibrillation
Drug: Amiodarone + Propranolol
Drug: Amiodarone
Drug: Propranolol

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effect of Prophylaxy of Amiodarone and Propranolol and Amiodarone With Propranolol in Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation Post Coronary Artery Bypass Graft, A Prospective Double-Blind Randomized Study

Detailed Description:

In this double blind randomized study 240 consecutive patients underwent elective coronary artery bypass grafting, being randomized prospectively into three groups, propranolol (p) (n=80), amiodarone (A) (n=80) and amiodarone with propranolol (AP) (n=80).

All groups received their medications from 7 days preoperatively and continued their medications for 5 days post CABG.
