Although many formulae for predicting the maintenance dose of warfarin have been developed, most of them are complex and not in practical use. Methods and Materials Among 12,738 new patients visiting the Cardiovascular Institute between 2004 and 2009, we identified 127 patients (66.6±8.8 years, 89 men) with atrial fibrillation for whom...

We examined trends of SDD, and using 2:1 propensity matching, we assessed 30-day rates of readmission, mortality and total costs at 30 days.ResultsOf 21,261 PCIs from 67 sites, 728 were SDD (3.9% of overall cohort). The rate of SDD increased from 1.6% in 2008 to 9.7% in 2016 (P

AbstractAtrial high rate episodes (AHREs), also termed, subclinical atrial tachyarrhythmias or subclinical atrial fibrillation (AF) are an important cardiovascular condition. Advancement in implantable cardiac devices such as pacemakers or internal cardiac defibrillators has enabled the continuous assessment of atrial tachyarrhythmias in patients with an atrial lead. Patients with device-detected AHREs are at an elevated risk of stroke and may have unmet anticoagulation needs. While the benefits of oral anticoagulation for stroke prevention in patients with clinical AF are well recognised, it is not known whether the same ...

Authors: De Vecchis R Abstract Recently, transcatheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) has been validated by international societal guidelines as a technique suitable for both treatment and secondary prevention of paroxysmal, persistent or long-lasting persistent AF in highly symptomatic patients in whom at least one antiarrhythmic drug had been tested.

ConclusionThe overall estimated incidence of AF and recurrent AF during pregnancy is as high as 2.2% and 39.2%, respectively. AF during pregnancy may result in poor maternal and fetal outcomes.
