Renewed concerns about a Department of Justice (DoJ) investigation involving a key player in the atrial fibrillation space has prompted one medtech analyst to review similar investigations in the industry. In March 2018, Mason, OH-based AtriCure, disclosed that it received a civil investigative demand from the DoJ over potential off-label marketing of the company's Deep hybrid procedure products, which account for about 10% of AtriCure's total sales. AtriCure's Deep procedure is not FDA approved to treat atrial fibrillation, but the devices that are used in the procedure have FDA clearan...

Authors: Lowres N, Giskes K, Hespe C, Freedman B Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a significant risk factor for avoidable stroke. Among high-risk patients with AF, stroke risk can be mitigated using oral anticoagulants (OACs), however reduction is largely contingent on physician prescription and patient persistence with OAC therapy. Over the past decade significant advances have occurred, with revisions to clinical practice guidelines relating to management of stroke risk in AF in several countries, and the introduction of non-vitamin K antagonist OACs (NOACs). This paper summarises the evolving body of researc...

In this study, we sought to develop new and simpler models for LAAT prediction in chronic nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. The study enrolled 144 patients with chronic nonvalvular atrial fibrillation who underwent transesophageal echocardiography for LAAT detection. We examined the association of LAAT incidence with the CHA2DS2-VASc score and echocardiographic parameters pertaining to the left atrium (LA), including diameter, volume index, strain, and strain rate measured on speckle tracking echocardiography. LAAT was found in 24.3% of patients (39/144). The following parameters had good diagnostic performance for LAAT: LA...

In conclusion, the practice of stroke neurologists is consistent with and supports the available evidence from observational studies on the time of initiation of NOACs. Our findings provide a guide for clinicians who manage nvAF-related stroke until more robust evidence from randomized controlled trials is available. PMID: 31531241 [PubMed]

ConclusionsSelective same ‐day discharge after AF ablation is safe and feasible using a streamlined peri‐procedural care protocol. Wider adoption can potentially reduce health‐care costs while improving patient experience.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

Background: Optimal timing to initiate anticoagulation after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) from atrial fibrillation (AF) is currently unknown. Compared to other stroke etiologies, AF typically provokes larger infarct volumes and greater concern of hemorrhagic transformation, so seminal randomized trials waited weeks to months to begin anticoagulation after initial stroke. Subsequent data are limited and non-randomized. Guidelines suggest anticoagulation initiation windows between 3 and 14 days post-stroke, with Class IIa recommendations, and level of evidence B in the USA and C in Europe.Aims: This open-label, parallel-group...

ConclusionsArrhythmias, including clinically significant abnormal rhythms, were common. Tachyarrhythmias were more frequent during dialysis and the immediate postdialytic period. The relevance of these findings to clinical outcomes requires additional study.
