Rs4968309 in Myosin Light Chain 4 (MYL4) Associated With Atrial Fibrillation Onset and Predicts Clinical Outcomes After Catheter Ablation in Atrial Fibrillation Patients Without Structural Heart Disease.
CONCLUSIONS: C allele and CC genotype of rs4968309 inMYL4were associated with AF onset and recurrence. Moreover, the A allele of rs1515751 had a significant association with AF onset. The polymorphisms ofMYL4can predict AF onset and prognosis after ablation in AF patients without structural heart disease. PMID: 31406021 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The patients' sleep quality worsened and their daytime sleepiness increased as the risk of malnutrition increased. PMID: 31522220 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Batul SA, Gopinathannair R Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure (HF) are growing cardiovascular disease epidemics worldwide. There has been an exponential increase in the prevalence of AF and HF correlating with an increased burden of cardiac risk factors and improved survival rates in patients with structural heart disease. AF is associated with adverse prognostic outcomes in HF and is most evident in mild-to-moderate left ventricular (LV) dysfunction where the loss of "atrial kick" translates into poorer quality of life and increased mortality. In the absence of underlying struct...
