Extract

Introduction: Aging is a known risk factor for several post-operative comorbidities, including atrial fibrillation (AFib), leading to increased length of stay and mortality. This study was designed to investigate the effect of age and related comorbidities on new-onset atrial fibrillation after robotic-assisted pulmonary lobectomy to better identify patients at greatest risk.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 353 consecutive patients without history of preoperative AFib who underwent robotic-assisted video-thoracoscopic (RAVTS) lobectomy by one surgeon from October 2010 to August 2016. Patients were analysed with respect to age and associated comorbidities, such as hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, and diabetes. Chi-Square (X2), Fisher's exact test, and Student's t-test were used to compare variables, with significance at p≤0.05.
