Abstract

There is accumulating evidence pointing to an important association between inflammation and atrial fibrillation (AF). Elevated plasma levels of several markers of the inflammatory cascade have been shown to predict future risk of AF. Inflammation is likely to represent a novel target for both the treatment and prevention of atrial fibrillation.
