Abstract: Baker and Coleman conducted a meta-analysis of 11 studies on ascorbic acid for the prevention of post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF). They concluded that perioperative administration of ascorbic acid reduces the frequency of POAF. However, the results of 2 rather large randomized controlled trials (RCTs) conducted in the United States were missing from their meta-analysis.
