The complex interaction between atrial fibrillation and heart failure in elderly patients.

In conclusion, elderly patients simultaneously presenting problems of cardiac function and arrhythmia are an important challenge for geriatric medicine, and request important efforts to improve their functional profile and prognosis. PMID: 31162487 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Kumanomido J, Ohe M, Shibata R, Hattori Y, Ishizaki Y, Ito S, Nohara Y, Takahashi J, Hori K, Obuchi A, Ohtsuka M, Fukumoto Y Abstract Keishibukuryogan is a Kampo medicine that induces vasodilation and improves the blood flow velocity in subcutaneous blood vessels. We herein report two cases in which keishibukuryogan completely diminished subcutaneous hematoma after cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker implantation and defibrillator battery replacement within a month. Keishibukuryogan can be a good option for treating or preventing subcutaneous hematoma after surgical procedures for devices. PMID...

Authors: Tsujioka S, Nozoe M, Kawano Y, Suematsu N, Kubota T Abstract A 70-year-old woman with situs inversus totalis underwent catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. Although her morphologic left atrium (LA) was enlarged, we performed cryoballoon ablation and liner radiofrequency ablation of the cava-tricuspid isthmus without mapping atrial arrhythmias. However, a different form of atrial tachycardia (AT) recurred. We performed catheter ablation a second time using a three-dimensional electroanatomic mapping system. AT was not terminated by the liner ablation at the roof of morphologic LA an...

Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) represents the most common arrhythmia worldwide, and its prevalence exponentially increases with age. It is related to increased risk of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism, which determines a significant burden of morbidity and mortality, as widely documented in the literature. AF also constitutes a risk factor for other less investigated conditions, such as heart failure, pulmonary embolism, impairment in physical performance, reduced quality of life and development of disability, mood disorders, and cognitive impairment up to dementia. In the elderly population, the management...

Authors: Fumagalli S, Boni S, Pupo S, Migliorini M, Marozzi I, Barghini E, Sacco F, Marchionni N Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent arrhythmia in elderly people. Findings derived from clinical trials seem to demonstrate that a rate-control strategy of AF in aged patients improves prognosis if compared to a rhythm-control one. However, epidemiological studies concordantly show that the arrhythmia is associated to increased hospitalization and mortality rates. In last years, the proportion of patients admitted to hospital for AF has progressively increased; this trend is observed in subjects>75...
