  Purpose
Endothelial function is closely related to the hemostasis , vascular tone, and organ perfusion in cardiovascular system, and its dysfunction would cause overactivation of the coagulative system to induce thrombus formation. So we study the relationship between the endothelial function and atrial fibrillation.

Condition
Atrial Fibrillation Endothelial Function

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Defined Population
Primary Purpose: Screening
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
