A review of the epidemiology of atrial fibrillation in Sub ‐Saharan Africa

In conclusion, AF seems to have a higher prevalence in the general population than previously thought, and is mostly associa ted with hypertension, cardiomyopathy and rheumatic heart disease in SSA. It is associated with a high incidence of heart failure and stroke. The management of AF is suboptimal in SSA, especially with a low uptake of oral anticoagulation.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

CONCLUSION: In addition to arterial hypertension, the predominant male sex and the typical age distribution, we found that cases of epistaxis often received anticoagulation therapy. This study showed an increase of epistaxis along with rising prescriptions of NOAC. In contrast, no increase of severe epistaxis cases leading to hospitalization was found.

Conclusions: A new model-based method is proposed to achieve high-resolution dynamic 31P-MRSI. The proposed method's ability to delineate metabolic heterogeneity was demonstrated in rat hindlimb. Significance: Abnormal mitochondrial metabolism is a key cellular dysfunction in many prevalent diseases such as diabetes and heart disease; however, current understanding of mitochondrial function is mostly gained from studies on isolated mitochondria under nonphysiological conditions. The proposed method has the potential to - pen new avenues of research by allowing in vivo and longitudinal studies of mitochondrial dysfun...

Conclusion: The model is efficient, versatile, and capable of obtaining well-fitting individualized pressure waveforms while reasonably predicting flow waveforms. Significance: The proposed methodology of personalized hemodynamic modeling may therefore facilitate individualized patient-specific assessment of both physiological and pathological functions of the CVS.
