Özet

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia occurring in about 10-20% of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). P-wave dispersion (PWd) and P-wave duration (PWD) have been used to evaluate the discontinuous propagation of sinus impulse and the prolongation of atrial conduction time, respectively. This study was conducted to compare the effects of reperfusion either by thrombolytic therapy or primary angioplasty on P-wave duration and dispersion in patients with acute anterior wall myocardial infarction.
