Özet

Introduction: P-wave dispersion (PWD) has been shown to be a non-invasive electrocardiographic predictor for development of atrial fibrillation (AF). Thus, it may be possible to attenuate AF risk through improvement of PWD. In this study, we compared the effects of an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, quinapril, and an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), irbesartan, on PWD.
