Effectiveness of implantable loop recorder and Holter electrocardiographic monitoring f...
Clinical Research in Cardiology : Official Journal of The... Hoevelmann J, Sliwa K et. al.

Sep 22nd, 2022 - Patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) are at increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). However, the exact underlying mechanisms of SCD in PPCM remain unknown. By means of extended electrocardiographic monitoring, we aimed to systemati...

Severity and Etiology of Incident Stroke in Patients Screened for Atrial Fibrillation v...
JAMA Neurology; Diederichsen SZ, Frederiksen KS et. al.

Aug 30th, 2022 - Atrial fibrillation (AF) screening trials have failed to demonstrate a significant reduction in stroke risk. The impact on stroke severity and the importance of prior strokes are unknown. To assess stroke characteristics in patients undergoing imp...

Journal of Hypertension; Papakonstantinou P, Chlouverakis G et. al.

Aug 27th, 2022 - The natural history of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) after the first clinical AF episode is not well known. AF burden is of clinical significance as it may have clinical implications concerning the long-term management of the arrhythmia and ...

Supraventricular Arrhythmia Following Patent Foramen Ovale Percutaneous Closure.
JACC. Cardiovascular Interventions; Guedeney P, Laredo M et. al.

Aug 26th, 2022 - Randomized studies have reported low rates of atrial fibrillation (AF) after patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure (<6%) but have relied on patient-reported symptomatic episodes, so the true incidence and timing of AF after PFO closure remain unknown...

Reducing Arrhythmia in Dialysis by Adjusting the Rx Electrolytes/Ultrafiltration, Study A

Aug 8th, 2022 - Within four weeks of consent, subjects will have an Implantable Loop Recorder (ILR) (Medtronic LINQ) device implanted. Subjects will be given a transmitter/charger and a Patient Care Assistant which they will be required to keep for the duration o...

Identification of Risk Factors for Atrial Fibrillation After Ablation of an Atrial Flutter by Radiofrequency of the Cavotricuspid Isthmus.

Jul 19th, 2022 - Atrial flutter is a common condition that is effectively treated by ablation using radiofrequency. Due to its feasibility, effectiveness and low procedural risk, radiofrequency ablation is a first-line treatment of atrial flutter. Several studies ...

Syncope Trial to Understand Tilt Testing Early or Recorders Study

Jul 14th, 2022 - RESEARCH QUESTION: In syncope patients at least 50 years of age, a strategy of first conducting a tilt table (HUT) will provide an earlier diagnosis at less cost than a strategy of first implanting an implantable loop recorder (ILR). BACKGROUND: S...

Arrhythmia Detection After MI

Jul 12th, 2022 - Patients who have ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation at least 48 hours after an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) have a higher risk of sudden cardiac death. Current guidelines recommend that for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death, pa...

Effect of CoVid-19 (CoronaVirusDisease-19) and Exercise on Myocardial Fibrosis and Ventricular Arrhythmias

Jun 29th, 2022 - Baseline investigations will depend on the clinical presentation of the athlete. Three groups are identified: Asymptomatic/mildly symptomatic: anosmia, ageusia, headache, mild fatigue, fever ≤3d, myalgias ≤3d , mild upper respiratory tract illness...

ECG Monitoring for Post-TAVR Delayed Conduction Disturbances Put to the Test

Dec 20th, 2021 - Given today's short hospital stays after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), there may be a role for selective long-term monitoring to flag delayed conduction abnormalities, studies showed. Researchers tested two continuous ECG monitori...

Screening for AF: More Questions Than Answers

Oct 4th, 2021 - In the early days of the pandemic, we were debating the merits of telemedicine to avoid bringing patients into the office. I was very much in favor of telemedicine, but some of my colleagues argued that seeing patients in person in the clinic gave...

LOOP Trial Undercuts Value of Long-term Continuous ECG Screening for Atrial Fibrillation

Aug 29th, 2021 - UPDATED AUGUST 30, 2021 // Maybe short, asymptomatic bouts of atrial fibrillation (AF) that show up on long-term, continuous monitoring aren't worth hunting for just so oral anticoagulation (OAC) can be started, even in elderly people with other s...

After a Stroke or TIA: New Guidelines to Prevent Recurrence

Aug 23rd, 2021 - This transcript has been edited for clarity. I'm Dr Neil Skolnik. Today we are going to discuss the 2021 Guideline for the Prevention of Stroke in Patients With Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) from the American Heart Association/America...

No Extra Drop in AF Burden from Postablation Weight-Loss Program: SORT-AF

May 6th, 2021 - Obesity is well known to promote atrial fibrillation (AF), and catheter ablation can dramatically cut back on AF prevalence. But assigning patients to a structured obesity-reduction program after AF ablation may not enhance the treatment's effect ...
