Objective: Mitral annular calcification (MAC) is the chronic, non inflammation and degenerative calcification of the supportive ring of mitral valve. In our study we aim to show that the risk of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias in patients with MAC and we investigated the P wave and QT parameters.

Materials and Methods: We performed echocardiographic study in 42 patients were diagnosed with MAC and 30 healthy individuals. We evaluated P wave dispersion (Pwd), corrected QT (QTc) and corrected QT dispersion (QTcd) intervals in patients with MAC.

Results: The longest P wave time (Pmax) (110.7±72.0±20.1 to 80.3, p
