Özet

Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a type of cardiac arrhythmia which is commonly seen following lung resection. There is currently no algorithm which can predict which patients will develop postoperative AF (PAF). The present study aims to identify the risk factors for the development of PAF and high-risk patients with PAF along with multiple risk factors.
