Özet

Aim Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia with an incidence of 25-40%, after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Resistin is a newly identified adipocyte-secreted hormone belonging to a cysteine-rich protein family. This study examined the relation of preoperative and postoperative early serum resistin level, which can play an important role as an inflammatory marker to predict AF after CABG.
