Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1-Induced Protein in Age-Related Atrial Fibrillation and Its Association with Circulating Fibrosis Biomarkers

Conclusion: MCPIP expression was higher in age-related AF than in the other patient groups and it was associated with AF-induced fibrosis.Cardiology

ConclusionsDue to worse outcomes with arrhythmias, there is a need for better screening and follow-up of ESLD patients for dysrhythmias.

ConclusionsAA are common in ARVC patients. Inappropriate shocks and systemic emboli may be associated with AA. Atrial size and right ventricular dysfunction may help identify ARVC patients at increased odds of AA.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Background: The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) has not been well described in young patients with inherited heart diseases such as the inherited cardiomyopathies: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), familial dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC); or inherited arrhythmia syndromes including long QT syndrome (LQTS), Brugada syndrome (BrS) or catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT).

Authors: Foo FS, Kerr A, Gabriel R, Heaven D, Looi JL, Lund M, Voss J, Sutton T Abstract AIMS: Guidelines recommend initial rate control in haemodynamically stable patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) or atrial flutter (AFL) and acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). There is limited data on early inpatient rhythm control. We investigated the outcomes of patients managed with early TOE-guided DC cardioversion (DCCV) or ablation. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed patients admitted to a single centre with AF or AFL and ADHF with LVEF≤40% that underwent inpatient TOE-guided DCCV or ablation. The primary...

Conclusion: These findings limit the possible roles of gene transcriptional changes in previously reported age-dependent pro-arrhythmic electrophysiologial changes observed in Pgc-1β-/- atria to an altered Ca2+-ATPase (Atp2a2) expression. This directly parallels previously reported arrhythmic mechanism associated with p21-activated kinase type 1 deficiency. This could add to contributions from the direct physiological outcomes of mitochondrial dysfunction, whether through reactive oxygen species (ROS) production or altered Ca2+ homeostasis. Introduction Atrial arrhythmias constitute a major public health probl...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular events than chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV). We aimed to investigate whether there is higher risk of arrhythmia in HCV infection. METHODS: Electronic medical records from National Health Institute Research Database during 2000-2012 were retrieved for patients with HBV or HCV. Patients with missing information, aged

san M Abstract Over the past three decades, the increasing rates of obesity have led to an alarming obesity epidemic worldwide. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases; thus, it is essential to define the molecular mechanisms by which obesity affects heart function. Individuals with obesity and overweight have shown changes in cardiac structure and function, leading to cardiomyopathy, hypertrophy, atrial fibrillation, and arrhythmia. Autophagy is a highly conserved recycling mechanism that delivers proteins and damaged organelles to lysosomes for degradation. In the hearts of patien...

Not every one feels the palpitation during tachycardia / Bradycardia /VPDs , Why ? Palpitation is awareness of one’s own heart beat. It is a complex perception of sensation at cortical level (like dyspnea) . It can occur during physical and mental exertion.However , if it occurs without any physiological reasons , it becomes abnormal. It can mean an abnormally heart in terms of  heart rate , rhythm or  raise in stroke volume. The first rule of palpitation is both tachycardia and bradycardia can cause it. Tachycardic palpitation is due to valve motion and braducardic palpitation is due to both moti...

ConclusionMyocardial abnormalities depicted by non-ischemic LGE-CMR were the only independent predictor for the occurrence of Afib/Afl on ECG monitoring, previously shown to predict adverse cardiac events in MD1.

Authors: Liu L, Wu L, Zheng L, Ding L, Chen G, Fan X, Yao Y Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Data regarding the correlations of biomarkers and AF in HCM patients are rather limited. We sought to explore the associations between the presence of AF and circulating biomarkers reflecting cardiovascular function (N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide, NT-pro BNP), endothelial function (big endothelin-1, big ET-1), inflammation (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein), and myocardial damage (cardiac troponin I, cTnI) in HCM patients with a...
