Abstract: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a failure that is observed in heart disease and is also known to be the most common heart rhythm disturbance post coronary artery bypass surgery. Although AF is considered a transient problem, it is usually accompanied with a variety of complications and morbidity for patients and may result in death. In the present study, pre- and post-operative considerable factors which may increase the risk and mortality of AF, and possible treatments have been concisely reviewed.
