Abstract
Objective: Experimental evidence correlates oxidative stress with atrial electrical remodeling which turned to be one of the most important factors in developing postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF). Some evidences have shown the role of antioxidant vitamins in preventing postoperative AF. We designed this study to evaluate the effect of orally administered vitamin C on the incidence of postoperative AF in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) +/- valve surgery. Methods: 380 patients undergoing CABG +/- valve surgery were equally divided into group A in which patients received (1 gm/12 hours) of vitamin C orally one day preoperatively and all through their postoperative hospital stay and group B in which patients received a placebo as a control group. All patients were continuously monitored after surgery in the intensive therapy unit and afterwards with 12 lead ECG daily done until their discharge. Results: The mean age of patients was 57.16±8.84 years in Group (A) and 56.91±8.09 years in group B, (p>0.05). Postoperative AF developed in 7 (3.6%) and 42 (22.1%) patients in groups A and B, respectively (p<0.001). The intensive therapy unit stay was 1.81±0.41 and 2.12±0.52 days for groups A and B, respectively (p<0.001). The hospital stay was 5.67±0.62 versus 6.10±1.12 days for groups A and B, respectively (p<0.001). Conclusions: Oral vitamin C is a safe and cheap supplementation that can be used to decrease incidence of postoperative AF in patients undergoing CABG +/- valve surgery.
