Background: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (PoAF) is one of the most common complications to occur after open heart surgery. It has been shown that hypoalbuminemia accompanies some cardiovascular disorders. The present study evaluates the effects of pre-procedural albumin, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and creatinine levels on PoAF.
