Conclusions Although ablation of CTI-dependent atrial flutter is a safe and effective procedure, 50% of the patients developed AF after the procedure. However, the role of combined ablation (CTI-dependent atrial flutter plus AF) aiming at preventing AF is still uncertain. (Arq Bras Cardiol. 2020; [online].ahead print, PP.0-0)

There are more than 660,000 Americans with kidney failure and nearly 470,000 on dialysis.1 Of these, estimates of nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) approach 20%.2 Atrial fibrillation nearly doubles the anticipated mortality and increases the stroke risk by approximately six-fold in these patients. The intersection between end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and NVAF is complicated and not easily parsed. Atrial fibrillation likely increases the rate of progression to ESRD in patients with underlying chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Authors: Kapodistrias N, Theocharopoulou G, Vlamos P Abstract MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNA molecules that control posttranscriptional gene expression and are present in tissues cells but also circulate in biological fluids in various forms (exosome, connected with proteins, apoptotic bodies, etc.). The roles that circulated extracellular serum microRNAs possess in cancer development, like in the delivery from a recipient cell to distant tissues and the repression of host genes resulting in the impairment of critical functions, are still undetermined. Disturbances, such as the higher incidence of atrial fibril...

The SCN5a gene encodes the ion-conducting subunit (Nav1.5) of the cardiac sodium channel. The main function of Nav1.5 is to enable a large and rapid, but transient, influx of sodium ions (INa) during the upstroke phase of the cardiac action potential. By doing so, Nav1.5 is responsible for the initiation of the cardiac action potential and thereby cardiac excitability. SCN5a mutations have been associated with inheritable syndromes, long QT syndrome type 3 (LQT3) in 1995, Brugada syndrome (BrS) in 1998, and several other diseases in the years thereafter, e.g., cardiac conduction disease, sick sinus syndrome, atrial fibrill...
