Liver Function Tests in Atrial Fibrillation
Keywords:Liver function tests, Atrial fibrillation, Pathogenesis, homeophatic
Numerous known risk factors for atrial fibrillation (AF) exist, but few studies have investigated the link between gastrointestinal and liver disorders. Through a variety of pathways, hepatic and gastrointestinal conditions can increase the risk of both prevalent and incident AF. According to numerous studies, liver dysfunction plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation. So, this review article aimed to give an overview of how liver function tests played role in the AF. Albumin, alkaline phosphatase, alanine transaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, gamma-glutamyl transferase, serum bilirubin, and prothrombin time were highlighted in the pathogenesis of AF. However, the 5’-nucleotidase test, alpha-fetoprotein test, mitochondrial antibodies test and more, and liver functions test need to find their pathogenesis in AF. The exact mechanism of action of the liver panel was not reported in the pathogenesis of AF. To control the major liver diseases in AF patients, the therapeutic management of liver function tests is required.
