Conclusion: This study, for the first time, identifies differences in fibroblasts from human atria between AR (atrial fibrillation) and non-AF patients with regard to size, shape, motility, and time to wound closure. Further investigation into the functional significance of these differences on cardiac repair after injury and progression of AF and its complications is warranted.
