ConclusionsThese results compare favourably to those reported by ECCG. Minimally Invasive esophagectomy can be the standard approach for surgical management of esophageal cancer. Introduction of the approach in each surgeon’s practice should be benchmarked to international standards.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) frequently coexists with congestive heart failure (HF) and arginine vasopressin (AVP) V1 receptor antagonists are used to treat hyponatremia in HF. However, the role of AVP in HF-induc...

In Reply Dr Lucijanic and colleagues express concern about the proportion of patients randomized to the drug group of the trial who crossed over to receive an ablation, and the biases those crossovers may have introduced in the analysis. As noted in the publication, there were also crossovers among patients randomized to the ablation group, namely patients who did not undergo the ablation after being randomized. This could also have introduced bias. Our concern about crossovers in either direction and biases introduced by the crossovers was precisely why prespecified sensitivity analyses (as-treated and per-protocol analys...

To the Editor Dr Packer and colleagues for the CABANA Investigators demonstrated no significant difference between catheter ablation and antiarrhythmic drug therapy in patients with paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation on the composite primary end point of death, disabling stroke, serious bleeding, or cardiac arrest. For the composite secondary end point of death or CV hospitalization, patients randomized to catheter ablation had better event-free survival than those randomized to antiarrhythmic drugs.

Percutaneous left atrial appendage closure (p-LAAC) emerged as an option for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients ’ ineligible for long-term anticoagulation.Real-world data on its in-hospital and 30-day readmission measures are limited.
