Patients who underwent elective valvular replacement, had rheumatic heart disease in combination with continuous atrial fibrillation, had no other types of arhythmia
, had cardiac function no higher than grade III,9 satisfied the application indication of amiodarone, had normal level of electrolyte and acidity and alkalinity, and had heart rate lower than 70 times/min were included.
The patients were grouped according to the number of premature ventricular contractions and presence of complex ventricular arhythmia
in the 24-hour rhythm Holter monitor test.
The patients of either sex with ASA I-III, age between 20-60 years, having rheumatic mitral valve disease with or without arhythmia
