Özet

Background: No randomized studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of renin-angiotensin aldosteron system blockers on postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of angiotensin converting-enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and ACEI plus candesartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker on postoperative AF.
