The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) may be activated during atrial fibrillation (AF); our aim was to evaluate the level of aldosterone in patients with either permanent AF, persistent AF scheduled for cardioversion or patients in sinus rhythm (SR). We hypothesized that an increased level of aldosterone is found in patients with AF, decreasing in patients with restored SR.
