          Perioperative atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased mortality, morbidity, and excess healthcare costs. The objective of our study was to assess if preoperative AF in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting is a predictor of operative mortality, postoperative stroke, and need for postoperative dialysis by interrogating a large registry database. We included all isolated procedures performed between February 1996 and March 2019. We used a generalized linear mixed model to assess the effect of preoperative AF on mortality stroke and the need for postoperative dialysis after adjusting for the relevant confounders derived from EuroSCORE 2.
