Abstract

Background: P-wave dispersion (PWD), defined as the difference between the maximum and minimum P-wave duration, has been proposed as being useful for the prediction of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is the most common arrhythmia and an important prognostic indicator for clinical deterioration in patients with aortic stenosis (AS). The,aim of the present study was to evaluate PWD in patients with AS.
