    Abstract : Obesity is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. A BMI >40 kg/m2 shortens life expectancy by about 10 years. The obesity related comorbidities diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia and sleep apnea contributes to the increased risk of cardiovascular events. There is also an increased risk of some forms of cancer (e. READ MORE

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia seen in clinical practice. In cardiac surgery, one-third of the patients experience episodes of AF during the first postoperative days (postoperative AF), and patients with preoperative AF (concomitant AF) can be offered ablation procedures in conjunction with surgery, in order to restore ordinary sinus rhythm (SR).
