In brief: Congenital

The cause of your arrhythmia is most likely a structural abnormality that you were born with.
I could not find any links between nitrous oxide and atrial fibrillation in a quick literature search. Although the physiologic stress of sedation and the procedure could have tip you over the edge to trigger the atrial fibrillation.
