Results: A total of 9 RCTs were included in this meta-analysis, enrolling a total of 2031 patients. Colchicine significantly reduces the incidence of POAF (RR 0.62; 95% CI, 0.52–0.74, P < 0.001, I2 = 0%). Subgroup analyses indicated that the protective effect of colchicine on POAF was slightly stronger in the long-duration group (RR 0.60; 95% CI, 0.48–0.75, P < 0.001, I2 = 0%) than in the short-duration group (RR 0.65; 95% CI, 0.49–0.86, P < 0.001, I2 = 0%).


Conclusion: Colchicine is effective in preventing the occurrence of POAF. The efficacy of colchicine can be slightly increased over treatment duration, with no obvious adverse reactions.

Subgroup analyses indicated that the protective effect of colchicine on POAF was almost the same (P = 0.71) in the long-duration group (RR 0.60; 95% CI, 0.48–0.75, P < 0.001, I2 = 0%) and the short-duration group (RR 0.65; 95% CI, 0.49–0.86, P < 0.001, I2 = 0%).
