Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and 25% of those >40 years old will experience AF. Left atrial size and left ventricular function are independently related to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Our aim was to evaluate cardiac volume and function using magnetic resonance imaging in patients with persistent AF and to describe the changes after cardioversion (CV). Sixty consecutive patients with persistent AF and 19 healthy volunteers had cardiac volumes evaluated by cinematographic breath-hold magnetic resonance imaging. Patients with AF were evaluated before CV and at 1, 30, and 180 days after CV, if still in sinus rhythm. All atrial and ventricular volumes and left ventricular mass decreased and ejection fractions increased significantly after CV (p
