Conclusion: Risk factors, aetiology, and precipitating factors of HF in de novo and ADCHF differ. De novo HF also had lower 1-year mortality and 3-month mortality compared to ADCHF. PMID: 32252602 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Liang G, Xu B, Wang S, Li C, Zhong G Abstract We performed a meta-analysis comparing the procedural and outcomes data and related to left atrial appendage occlusion guided by intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation patients. Technical success with ICE was significantly similar to that of TEE (odds ratio [OR] 1.38, 95% CI [0.62, 3.09], I2 = 0%, P = 0.43). The peri-procedural complications showed no significant difference between the two groups (OR 0.84, 95% CI [0.57, 1.23], I2 = 0%, P = 0.37). Mortality was similar in procedures using...

Authors: Martignani C, Massaro G, Biffi M, Ziacchi M, Diemberger I Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia; its incidence is expected to rise in the coming years due to the aging of the western population. It is associated not only with clinical, but also with significant social and economic issues; in fact, AF-related healthcare costs have been estimated at several million euros in some European countries. Therefore, interventions aimed at improvement of clinical management and reduction of direct and indirect healthcare costs, related to AF, would be strongly recommended in view ...

Purpose of review To review the shared pathology of atrial fibrillation and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and the prognostic, diagnostic, and treatment challenges incurred by the co-occurrence of these increasingly prevalent diseases. Recent findings Multiple risk factors and mechanisms have been proposed as potentially linking atrial fibrillation and HFpEF, with systemic inflammation more recently being invoked. Nonvitamin K oral anticoagulants, left atrial appendage occlusion devices, and catheter ablation have emerged as alternative treatment options. Other novel pharmacological agents, suc...
