Still, factors triggering cardiac arrhythmias occur in many instances in liver cirrhosis.We studied a cohort with patientsdiagnosed with liver cirrhosis hospitalized to Cardiology Department, to the County Hospital of Craiova, between January 2017 and January 2018. We wanted to study the frequency of cardiac arrhythmias at the patients diagnosed with liver cirrhosis and also to evaluate several associated factors.The frequency of cardiac arrhythmias in the presence of risk factors was analysed using x2 test and statistical models.We analized multiple variable including demographics and clinical and biochemical characteristics, frequency of type of arrhythmias and evaluation of the associated factors like diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia ,hyper/hypokalemia and hyper/hyponatremia. From our group, after exclusion criteria, we have a total of 34 patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis, 37 patients with chronic HCV infection and 36 patients with HBV infection. From 34 patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis, 23 patients presented atrial fibrillation(67.65%), from 37 patients with chronic HCV infection 21 were diagnosed with atrial fibrillation(56.76%) and from the patients with HBV infection 19 patients were known with atrial fibrillation(52.78%).We have encounter atrial flutter at 2 patients (5.56%) with chronic HBV infection. Atrial extrasystole was found at 7 patients with chronic HBV infection (19.44%), 4 patients with chronic HCV infection (10.81%) and 1 patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis (2.94%). Ventricular extrasystole was found at 12 patients with chronic HBV infection (33.33%), 3 patients with chronic HCV infection (8.11%) and 5 patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis (14.71%).We have also correlate the arrhythmias with different biochemical variables from our cohort. In our study there were many association between hepatic cirrhosis and cardiac abnormalities, which is concordant to reports from literature. Compared to population without liver cirrhosis, the prevalence of arrhythmias was increased in our cohort.
