Conversely, the role of the absence of FVH (negative-FVH) remains unknown.MethodsConsecutive stroke patients were studied via magnetic resonance angiography, within 24 h of onset and major arterial occlusion. All patients were examined usi...

Authors: Atzema CL, Jackevicius CA, Chong A, Dorian P, Ivers NM, Parkash R, Austin PC Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with atrial fibrillation frequently seek emergency care. Rates of guideline-concordant oral anticoagulant therapy for stroke prevention are suboptimal in the community. We assessed the association between prescribing of oral anticoagulants in the emergency department (relative to referral to a longitudinal care provider for treatment initiation) and long-term use of oral anticoagulants. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study performed at 15 hospitals in Ontario, Canada, involved patients aged 65...

Cardiology MCQ – Stroke risk in non valvar AF – Answer Stroke risk in chronic non valvar atrial fibrillation was increased by — fold in Framingham study: Correct answer: 2. Five fold In the same study, chronic AF with rheumatic heart disease had 17 fold increase in stroke risk. The study report had a follow up period of 24 years. Conventionally non valvar AF is defined as AF in the absence of moderate or severe mitral stenosis or prosthetic valve. Milder degrees of mitral stenosis and other valvular lesions are not excluded from ‘non-valvar’ AF! Back to question Reference Wolf PA, Dawber TR,...

"Incompatible Housemates": Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy and Takotsubo Syndrome. Intern Med. 2019 Dec 06;: Authors: Sato Y, Matsumoto K, Sakai J, Nakamura T, Tanaka H, Hirata K Abstract This case report concerns an 81-year-old woman with previously well-controlled hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). She was referred to our hospital because of the acute onset of takotsubo syndrome. Echocardiography revealed basal hyperkinesis due to takotsubo syndrome superimposed on septal hypertrophy, which resulted in the reappearance of prominent left ventricular outflow tract obstruc...

AbstractAimsConcerns about the prognostic value of NYHA functional class (FC) in heart failure (HF) patients carrying a prophylactic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) are still present. We aimed to compare whether mortality and arrhythmic risk were different, in a cohort of HF patients undergoing ICD ‐only implant, according to their FC.Methods and resultsHF patients with left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤35%, undergoing first prophylactic ICD‐only implant were collected from a multicentre nationwide registry (2006–2015). Six hundred and twenty‐one patients were identified (101 patients in ...
