Abstract

Objective: Renin-angiotensin system may be activated during atrial fibrillation (AF). Our aim was to evaluate plasma renin activity (PRA) and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels in patients with different AF types who had normal left ventricular (LV) systolic function.
