Abstract

Perioperative arrhythmias are a common complication of surgery, with incidence ranging from 4% to 20% for noncardiothoracic procedures, depending on the type of surgery performed. The immediate postoperative period is a dynamic time and is associated with many conditions conducive to the development of postoperative arrhythmias. The presence of postoperative atrial fibrillation is associated with increased morbidity, ICU stay, length of hospitalization, and hospital costs. The associated burdens are expected to rise in the future, given that the population undergoing cardiac surgery is getting older and sicker. Thousands of patients undergo major surgery each year and a major complication of these procedures is the occurrence of perioperative arrhythmia. It is imperative for clinicians to be up-to-date on current management of these arrhythmias.
