Abstract

Supraventricular arrhythmias can sometimes be “only” epiphenomena appearing during acute hypoxia, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, and thrombosis. Indeed, atrial fibrillation is not rare in acute aortic dissection as it is estimated in about one half of patients and may be secondary to a perfusion deficit of the sinoatrial node artery.
