Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common complication following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The mechanism of AF after CABG is not well defined; however, it is suggested that endogenous adenosine, released in response to tissue hypoxia, may play a mechanistic role in these arrhythmias.
