Association of Depression With Atrial Fibrillation in South Korean Adults.
https://doi.org/10.1001/jamanetworkopen.2021.41772
JAMA Network Open; Kim YG, Lee KN et. al.

Jan 5th, 2022 - The risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) in people with depression is not fully known. Depression is associated with sympathetic activation and emotional stress, which might increase the risk of new-onset AF. To assess the incidence of new-onset AF in...

Left Atrial Deformation Imaging and Atrial Fibrillation in Patients with Rheumatic Mitr...
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.echo.2021.12.010
Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography : Off... Stassen J, Butcher SC et. al.

Dec 27th, 2021 - Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a frequent complication of rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS) and is associated with worse outcomes. Prediction of new-onset AF by assessing left atrial (LA) mechanics with speckle-tracking echocardiography might be useful ...

Non-invasive Characterization of the Mechanisms of Atrial Fibrillation Maintenance
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02497248

Dec 14th, 2021 - The MAIN GOAL of this project is to clinically validate the technology for the noninvasive identification of the mechanisms responsible for maintenance of AF by body surface electrical mapping. To achieve this goal, noninvasive mapping of the atri...

Three Dimensional Versus Two Dimensional Echocardiography in Assessment of Severity and Scoring of Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis.
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04968431

Jul 20th, 2021 - Although the prevalence of rheumatic fever is decreasing in developed countries, it still affects numerous areas in the non- industrialized world. Untreated mitral stenosis (MS) contributes significantly to global morbidity and mortality. Echocard...

Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation in Intermediate Risk Patients
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02604745

Apr 1st, 2021 - Severe mitral regurgitation is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Mitral valve surgical repair has proven to be an effective and durable option in the treatment of symptomatic degenerative mitral regurgitation (MR). Echocardiogra...

Development of an Algorithm to Differentiate Heart Murmurs Using Electronic Stethoscopes
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04400513

Mar 23rd, 2021 - Valvular heart disease (VHD), a subclass of structural heart disease (SHD), is a major cause of mortality and reduced quality of life for tens of millions of patients worldwide. Detecting VHD early allows the disease to be carefully monitored so t...

Incidence of Residual Tricuspid Regurgitation in Patients Undergoing Left-heart Surgery
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04414358

Nov 30th, 2020 - Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) was defined as TR occurring secondary to left heart, especially mitral valve stenosis or pulmonary disease. Previous study reported that about 30% - 50% of patients with significant mitral stenosis developed...

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/947740

Mar 19th, 2021 - The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published a draft guideline on the management of heart valve disease in adults. Here is a summary of the key recommendations: Referral Consider echocardiogram for adults with murmur ...

Valvular AFib Heightens Risk in TAVR
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/938257

Sep 29th, 2020 - Atrial fibrillation has been known to confer an increased risk for poor outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, but there's been no evidence of how the etiology of AFib can influence post-TAVR outcomes. Now, a group of researchers f...

Sep 23rd, 2020 - Atrial fibrillation has been known to confer an increased risk for poor outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, but there’s been no evidence of how the etiology of AFib can influence post-TAVR outcomes. enot-poloskun/Getty Images No.

'Low-Risk' Valvular AF in Some May be Risky Enough for Oral Anticoagulation
https://www.staging.medscape.com/viewarticle/937294

Sep 11th, 2020 - Some patients with "valvular" atrial fibrillation (AF) and stroke-risk scores low enough for oral anticoagulation (OAC) not to be indicated may actually face enough thromboembolic risk to justify the lifelong therapy, a new report suggests. The co...

Analyze This Image: What Is Being Shown Here?
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/913275_2

May 31st, 2019 - Explanation The correct answer is cyanosis. Reduced excursion of the mitral leaflets during diastole is shown in the apical four-chamber view (Figure 1). The color Doppler image (Figure 2) shows turbulent flow entering the left ventricle during di...
