Abstract

Background: Ischemia of the atria and conductive system of the heart results in greater atrial electrophysiological changes and propensity for atrial fibrillation. P wave duration and dispersion have been proposed to be useful for the prediction of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). This study aimed to investigate the effect of coronary artery dominance on P wave duration and dispersion.
