Abstract

In this current summary of scientific literature it has been presented two articles concentrated on either heart failure or atrial fibrillation. The first discusses the association between serum phosphate levels and metabolic inbalance. In the second article authors present B-type natriuretic peptide as a predictor of left atrium appendage thrombus in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
