CONCLUSIONS: This is the most extensive systematic review of RCTs conducted to date to assess effects of increasing PUFA on cardiovascular disease, mortality, lipids or adiposity. Increasing PUFA intake probably slightly reduces risk of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease events, may slightly reduce risk of coronary heart disease mortality and stroke (though not ruling out harms), but has little or no effect on all-cause or cardiovascular disease mortality. The mechanism may be via lipid reduction, but increasing PUFA probably slightly increases weight. PMID: 30019767 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Non valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) is highly prevalent among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients in whom it portends increased risk for subsequent stroke or systemic thromboembolic events. For these high risk patients oral anticoagulation is recommended, after proper assessment of both thromboembolic and bleeding risk is accurately ascertained.However, current NVAF risk scores are inadequate for use in CKD subjects, since they do not take into account the occurrence and the degree of renal function impairment.

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: All randomized trials of direct oral anticoagulants in atrial fibrillation excluded patients with severe kidney disease. The safety and effectiveness of direct oral anticoagulants across the range of eGFR in real-world settings is unknown. Our objective is to quantify the risk of bleeding and benefit of ischemic stroke prevention for direct oral anticoagulants compared with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation with and without CKD. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, &MEASUREMENTS: We created a propensity score-matched cohort of 3206 patients with atrial fibrillatio...

Publication date: March 2018Source: Advances in Medical Sciences, Volume 63, Issue 1Author(s): Ewelina Michniewicz, Elżbieta Mlodawska, Paulina Lopatowska, Anna Tomaszuk-Kazberuk, Jolanta MalyszkoAbstractCoronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cardiovascular disease while atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. Both diseases share associated risk factors – hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea, obesity and smoking. Moreover, inflammation plays a causative role in both diseases. The prevalence of CAD in patients with AF is from 17% to 46.5% while the prevalence of AF among pati...

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT02513316.FindingsBetween Aug 4, 2011, and July 31, 2015, we recruited 1490 participants of whom follow-up data were available for 1447 (97%), over a mean period of 850 days (SD 373; 3366 patient-years). The symptomatic intracranial haemorrhage rate in patients with cerebral microbleeds was 9·8 per 1000 patient-years (95% CI 4·0–20·3) compared with 2·6 per 1000 patient-years (95% CI 1·1–5·4) in those without cerebral microbleeds (adjusted hazard ratio 3·67, 95% CI 1·27–10·60). Compared...

Publication date: Available online 27 June 2018Source: Revista Española de Cardiología (English Edition)Author(s): Maria Mahmood, Gregory Y.H. LipAbstractBoth atrial fibrillation (AF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are highly prevalent, especially with increasing age and associated comorbidities, such as hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, and vascular disease. The relationship between both AF and CKD seems to be bidirectional: CKD predisposes to AF while onset of AF seems to lead to progression of CKD. Stroke prevention is the cornerstone of AF management, and AF patients with CKD are at higher risk of ...

ConclusionsCardiovascular event rate one year after electrical cardioversion was low. Electrical cardioversion had a high immediate success rate, however, maintenance of stable sinus rhythm in the long term was low.

ConclusionsA bivariate analysis that simultaneously characterizes both risk and benefit demonstrates that riva- and dabi-based regimens were both favorable over VKA plus dual antiplatelet therapy among patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing PCI.
