Study of Statin for Reduction of Postoperative Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

2015-07-21 12:23:25 | BioPortfolio


The study will select all recruited patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation will be randomly allocated to receive oral rosuvastatin 20mg/day or blank control from 7 days before ablation and last for 3 months. To observe the early relapse of atrial fibrillation and the changes of white blood cell count, hs-C reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and the changes of safety indicators .

This study assumes that the early atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence will be decreased in patients with paroxysmal AF if rosuvastatin 20mg/d is received from 7 days before surgery in these patients who plan to undergo radiofrequency catheter ablation for consecutive 3 months.


This study is a randomized, open-label, multi-centers, parallel-control study to explore whether rosuvastatin 20mg/d could decrease early AF recurrence in patients with paroxysmal AF after radiofrequency catheter ablation. 346 patients with paroxysmal AF are planned to be enrolled. The patients are randomized to receive oral rosuvastatin 20mg/d or control therapy from 7 days before operation and last for 3 months. The early AF recurrence within 90 days after ablation and the changes of 4 inflammatory markers including white blood cell count, hs-CRP, IL-6 and TNF-α and safety indicators will be observed. The study is aim to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin on decreasing early recurrence in patients with paroxysmal AF and discuss its mechanisms of action.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.

A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
