The aim of the study is to examine the effect of RIPC on physiological parameters in
non-valvular paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Furthermore the study will provide a unique
bio-date base for further analysis of molecular and genetic mechanisms responsible for
The potential effect of RIPC on AF inducibility and/or prothrombotic activity might be
implemented as additional treatment component to reduce AF burden and minimize thromboembolic
Interim Analysis will be done after 73 patients.
