Test identifies patients at risk of complications following heart bypass surgery

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

US researchers have developed a non-invasive test which could predict a patient's risk of developing a life-threatening heart-rhythm abnormality, known as atrial fibrillation, following open heart-bypass surgery. The low-cost test could help doctors decide which patients would benefit from drug therapy before surgery and spare others the expense and side-effects associated with anti-arrhythmic drugs.
