ConclusionRobotically assisted Heller myotomy and POEM are safe and efficacious treatments for achalasia with lower rates of technical complications compared to laparoscopic Heller myotomy. With the advancements in endoscopic instruments and robotic surgery, POEM and robotically assisted Heller myotomy should be considered in the treatment of achalasia and esophageal dysmotility disorders.

This study will be undertaken at the Loghman Hakim Hospital, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences and Health Services.Intervention and comparatorCOVID-19 confirmed patients will be randomly assigned to one of three groups, with 20 patients in each. The first group (Arm 1) will receive Hydroxychloroquine + Lopinavir / Ritonavir (Kaletra) + Interferon- β 1a (Recigen), the second group (Arm 2) will be administered Hydroxychloroquine + Lopinavir / Ritonavir (Kaletra) + Interferon-β 1b (Ziferon), and the control group (Arm 3) will be treated by Hydroxychloroquine + Lopinavir / Ritonavir (Kaletra).Main outcom...

ConclusionsIn this global survey of>  1100 EP professionals regarding hospitalized COVID-19 patients, a variety of arrhythmic manifestations were observed, ranging from benign to potentially life-threatening. Observed adverse events related to use of HCQ + AZM included prolonged QTc requiring drug discontinuation as well as Torsade d e Pointes. Large prospective studies to better define arrhythmic manifestations as well as the safety of treatment strategies in COVID-19 patients are warranted.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review discusses how wearable devices —sensors externally applied to the body to measure a physiological signal—can be used in heart failure (HF) care.Recent FindingsMost wearables are marketed to consumers and can measure movement, heart rate, and blood pressure; detect and monitor arrhythmia; and support exercise training and rehabilitation. Wearable devices targeted at healthcare professionals include ECG patch recorders and vests, patches, and textiles with in-built sensors for improved prognostication and the early detection of acute decompensation. Integrating data from weara...

CONCLUSION: We report the successful management of anesthesia without lethal arrhythmia in a patient with ARVC and an ICD. An adequate amount of analgesia should be administered during general anesthesia to maintain adequate anesthetic depth and to avoid stress and pain. PMID: 32473832 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

onio Muñoz Ignacio Algredo-Badillo The electrocardiogram records the heart’s electrical activity and generates a significant amount of data. The analysis of these data helps us to detect diseases and disorders via heart bio-signal abnormality classification. In unbalanced-data contexts, where the classes are not equally represented, the optimization and configuration of the classification models are highly complex, reflecting on the use of computational resources. Moreover, the performance of electrocardiogram classification depends on the approach and parameter estimation to generate the model with ...

Ventricular arrhythmias represent a significant health issue, as approximately 300.000 sudden cardiac deaths are registered annually in the United States, mostly as a consequence of ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ventricular fibrillation [1]. VT is a manifestation of various diseases, ranging from genetic conditions to post-ischemic or primary cardiomyopathies to idiopathic VT in otherwise structurally normal hearts.
