Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1714400Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a frequently identified arrhythmia during the course of sepsis. The aim of this narrative review is to assess the characteristics of patients with new-onset AF related to sepsis and the risk of stroke and death, to understand if there is a need for anticoagulation. We searched for studies on AF and sepsis on PubMed, the Cochrane database, and Web of Science, and 17 studies were included. The mean incidence of new-onset AF in patients with sepsis was 20.6% (14.7% in retrospective studies and 31.6% in prospective). Risk factors for new-onset AF includ...

AbstractBackgroundWomen undergoing atrial fibrillation catheter ablation (AFCA) have higher rates of vascular complications and major bleeding. However, most studies have been underpowered to detect differences in rarer complications such as stroke/transient ischemic attack (TIA) and procedural mortality.MethodsWe performed a systematic review of databases (PubMed, World of Science, Embase) to identify studies published since 2010 reporting AFCA complications by sex. Six complications of interest were: 1) vascular/groin complications; 2) pericardial effusion/tamponade; 3) stroke/TIA; 4) permanent phrenic nerve injury; 5) m...

In this issue of the Seminars, Ni and colleagues report outcomes of the first series of patients treated with minimally invasive left atrial appendage excision (LAAE) and atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation for secondary prevention of thromboembolic stroke1. Although the follow up period is relatively short, the authors are to be commended for demonstrating procedural safety using video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) AF ablation and LAAE, in addition to ensuring meticulous follow up including electrocardiographic Holter monitoring and computed tomography angiography (CTA) for assessment of completeness of LAAE in this...

Conclusions: The rivaroxaban users had a 3-day shorter LOS-OAC after IPTW-adjustment. Using rivaroxaban was associated with a 4 to 5 days shorter LOS-OAC than using warfarin in patients with mild or moderate stroke, though treatment selection did not have a large impact in patients with severe stroke.

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of the present study was to compare the long-term effectiveness and safety of newly initiated anticoagulation with edoxaban (EDO) versus uninterrupted vitamin K antagonist (VKA) therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) scheduled for transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE)-guided direct electrical current cardioversion (DCC).MethodsA propensity score-matched cohort observational study was performed comparing the safety and effectiveness of edoxaban versus well-controlled VKA therapy among a cohort of consecutive non-valvular AF patients scheduled for DCC. The primary safety outcome was major...

Atrial fibrillation and peripheral arterial disease are two conditions associated with high risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications and mortality.1 –5 There is evidence that coexistence of both these clinical conditions can result to an additive risk of adverse events.6 Indeed, atherosclerotic vascular disease has been linked with stroke, thromboembolism and death in subjects with atrial fibrillation and has been therefore included as one of the components of risk scores, such as the CHA2DS2-VASc score (Congestive Heart failure, Hypertension Age> 75 years, DM, Stroke, Vascular disease) in order to...

Conclusion: COVID-19-related ischemic events can present as small vessel occlusions, branch emboli or large vessel occlusions. The most common etiology is cryptogenic. Patients with LVO syndromes tend to be younger, male and may have elevated acute inflammatory markers.

AbstractAimsCardiomyopathies are a heterogeneous group of disorders that increase the risk for atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of the study is to assess the prevalence of AF, anticoagulation management, and risk of stroke/transient ischaemic attack (TIA) in patients with cardiomyopathy.Methods and resultsThree thousand two hundred eight consecutive adult patients with cardiomyopathy (34.9% female; median age: 55.0  years) were prospectively enrolled as part of the EURObservational Research Programme Cardiomyopathy/Myocarditis Registry. At baseline, 903 (28.2%) patients had AF (29.4% dilated, 27.5% hypertrophic, 51.5...
