This study aims to explore the best antithrombotic strategy for AF patients after PCI based on a network meta-analysis. This study was registered in PROSPERO (CRD42018093928). The PubMed, Cochrane, and EMBASE databases were searched to identify clinical trials concerning antithrombotic therapy for AF patients with PCI from inception to April 2018. Pairwise and network meta-analysis were conducted to compare clinical outcomes of different antithrombotic therapy. The primary endpoint was major bleeding. Fifteen studies including 16,382 patients were identified with follow-up ranging from 3 to 12 months. Non-vitamin K oral an...

Conclusion: About a quarter of patients discharged in sinus rhythm after an acute STEMI have IAB. Patients with aIAB have a poor prognosis, although this is explained mainly by the association of aIAB with age and other variables.Cardiology 2019;142:109 –115

ConclusionsA temporally dynamic risk score, IMRS ‐VASc was derived and validated as a predictor of stroke in AF outpatients. IMRS‐VASc requires further validation and the evaluation of its use in guiding care and treatment decisions for AF patients.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

ConclusionNo clinical event occurred in patients demonstrating atrial sludge without thrombus and undergoing DCC for AF. These findings support current guidelines that only keep atrial thrombus as a contraindication to cardioversion, but warrant further investigation in large studies.

HenkesAbstractAlthough mechanical thrombectomy (MT) has been shown in numerous trials to be a successful treatment option for patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO), there is limited information on the safety and effectiveness of the technique in cases of recurrent LVO. To this end, we performed a retrospective review of our prospectively maintained database to identify all patients that had undergone more than one MT procedure J...

AbstractGuidelines and experts note that patients with atrial fibrillation require regular renal function monitoring to ensure safe use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). Insufficient monitoring could lead to inappropriate dosing and adverse events. Our objective was  to describe the frequency of insufficient creatinine monitoring among patients on DOACs, and to describe clinical factors associated with insufficient monitoring. We hypothesized that renal impairment would be associated with insufficient monitoring. A retrospective cohort study was performed with data from the Michigan Anticoagulant Quality Improvem...

AbstractThe goal of this paper is to review literature on the topic of anticoagulation resumption after stroke from atrial fibrillation. Following ischemic stroke, the average annual risk of recurrent stroke in a patient with a CHADS2 score of 9 is 12.2%%, translating to an average daily risk of 0.03%%. Oral anticoagulant therapy provides a 75% relative risk reduction. However, in the 2-week period immediately following an acute stroke, this daily risk appears to be elevated. The same period is associated with an increased risk of hemorrhagic transformation of ischemic stroke due to reperfusion, impaired autoregulation, an...

This study was conducted to verify if automated oscillometric blood pressure monitors (AOBPMs) have sufficiently high predictive validity to screen patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS: Electronic searches were performed to identify all studies published between 1946 and July 14, 2018, from indexed in Ovid-Medline, Embase, the Cochrane Library and CINAHL by using the following keywords: "atrial fibrillation," "atrial flutter," "blood pressure monitor," and "sphygmomanometer." RESULTS: Thirteen diagnostic accuracy studies, including a total of 9,380 elderly, were in...
