 The purpose of this study was to assess the outcome of SA over 5 years and determine predictors for success over that period. This study demonstrated stable results of SA for AF over time with somewhat different predictors for 2– and 5–year NSR in a group of patients with complete follow–up at both time points. Accurate models to determine predictors for success of SA more than 2 years after surgery are essential to better understand long–term outcome for patients with AF.
