AbstractBackgroundDigitalis glycosides are employed for rate control of atrial fibrillation. Recent studies suggested potential harmful effects of digitalis monotherapy and combination with antiarrhythmic drugs. The aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence and potential impact of digitalis therapy on outcome in patients undergoing catheter ablation of supraventricular arrhythmias.Methods and resultsThe German Ablation Registry is a nationwide, prospective registry with a 1-year follow-up investigating 12,566 patients receiving catheter ablations of supraventricular arrhythmias in 52 German centres. The present...

Conclusions No association was detected between low-dose aspirin use and the composite outcome of all-cause mortality, admission for myocardial infarction, and admission for stroke in patients with HF with no history of atrial fibrillation. Aspirin use was associated with an increased risk of readmission for HF. Graphical abstract

Every day, millions of people swallow fish oil capsules, many of them lured by the promise that the pills will help them cast off heart disease. In fact, the label of one popular brand includes the line, “May reduce coronary heart disease risk.” Don’t take the bait: these bold marketing claims haven’t caught up with the latest science. Earlier this year, the American Heart Association (AHA) issued an updated advisory about fish oil supplements and their cardiovascular benefits. Their verdict: fish oil supplements may slightly lower the risk of dying of heart failure or after a recent heart attack. B...

CONCLUSION: Swiss-AF is a large national prospective cohort of patients with AF in Switzerland. This study will provide important new information on structural and functional brain damage in patients with AF and on other AF related complications, using a large variety of genetic, phenotypic and health economic parameters.

CONCLUSIONS: In real-life AF patients undergoing coronary stenting, guideline-recommended VKA was less used. AF patients had adjusted worse prognosis during 12-month follow-up after discharge. It is of utmost importance to improve the current status of oral anticoagulants use. PMID: 28584203 [PubMed - in process]
