It has been a wonderful 10 days discussing the landmark study by Dr. Gillinov and colleagues, "Rate Control versus Rhythm Control for Atrial Fibrillation after Cardiac Surgery" on the Medstro forum. With the help of our authors and experts, we have gained critical insights into an array of topics from the clinical implications of this study to the need for further investigation, from the value of 24-hour post-operative cardiac monitoring to the desire for better rhythm control drugs, and from lessons learned regarding intra-operative complications to advice for our incoming medical professionals. Thank you to authors, Drs. Gillinov, Bagiella, Bowdish, Geljins and Mack, for taking the time to help us interpret their data more thoroughly and to Drs. Hohnloser, Al-Khatib, Mathew, and Sundt for providing their clinical expertise as we discussed these essential topics.

As this is the final day of the forum, I would just like to open up the floor to anyone who has any last insights, questions or comments regarding this study or a related topic. Thank you so much again for all of your active participation.
