Abstract

Background: Atrial fibrillation is the most common clinical arrhythmia. Early detection of AF can prevent further complications. The present study was designed to find the relationship between P-wave duration and AF-incidence. Methods: The study included baseline data collected in 2010 through 2020 on 9,704 person’s age 35 to 65 years from the MASHAD cohort study. P-wave duration was analyzed by the study cardiologists using lead II ECG recordings in the recruitment phase of the study for all participants. Results: During the 10 year period, 27 persons developed AF. The results did not show any association between P-wave duration and AF. Also other ECG factors that we measured (QRS duration, QT Min, QT Max) did not show a relationship with AF incidence. In this study age showed a significant relationship (P<0.001). Also, systolic blood pressure (P=0.022) and diastolic blood pressure (P=0.025) demonstrated significant relationship with AF. In a logistic regression age (P=0.001 OR: 1.08 95% CI=1.03-1.13), HTN (P=0.02 OR: 2.36; 95% CI=1.11-5.04), SBP (P=0.02 OR: 1.01 95% CI=1.00-1.02) and platelets count (P=0.002 OR: 0.98 95% CI=0.98-0.99) showed statically relation with AF. Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the incidence of AF was related to blood pressure and platelet count, but no relationship was found between the P-wave duration and the incidence of AF.
