This article reviews cardiovascular problems in premutation carriers and discusses possible contributing mechanisms including RNA toxicity and mild fragile X mental retardation protein deficiency. Further research studies are needed in order to prove a direct association of the cardiovascular problems in fragile X premutation carriers because such knowledge will lead to better preventative treatment.

Authors: Shao H, Dong L, Feng Y, Wang C, Tong H Abstract BACKGROUND: Cantharidin (CTD) is a compound which have the potential to be exploited as an antitumor drug, and it has been demonstrated antitumor effects in a variety of cancers. However, the use is limited due to its severe toxicity. It has reported that it can induce fatal cardiac arrhythmias. Fortunately, we found that L-glutamine can alleviate cardiac toxicity caused by cantharidin in mice. METHODS: To investigate the protective effect of L-glutamine, we used a high dose of cantharidin in mice to create a model of cardiotoxicity. In the experimental m...

Ablation of complex cardiac arrhythmias requires an immobilized patient. For a successful and safe intervention and for patient comfort, this can be achieved by conscious sedation. Administered sedatives and analgesics have respiratory depressant side effects and require close monitoring. We investigated the feasibility and accuracy of additional, continuous transcutaneous carbon-dioxide partial pressure (tpCO2) measurement during conscious sedation in complex electrophysiological catheter ablation procedures.

Authors: Gheini A, Pourya A, Pooria A Abstract Cardiac arrhythmias are associated with several cardiac diseases and are prevalent in people with or without structural and valvular abnormalities. Ventricular arrhythmias (VA) can be life threating and its onset requires immediate medical attention. Similarly, atrial fibrillation and flutter lead to stroke, heart failure and even death. Optimal treatment of VA is very variable and depends on the medical condition associated with the rhythm disorder (which includes reversible causes such as myocardial ischemia or pro-arrhythmic drugs). While an implanted cardioverter d...

The objective of this study was to compare the efficiency of data transmission and arrhythmia detection accuracy of the Reveal LINQ  with TruRhythm Detection with the Confirm Rx with SharpSense Technology.MethodsIn this prospective study, 142 patients were randomized 1:1 to receive Reveal LINQ  or Confirm Rx ICM system. Arrhythmic events include atrial fibrillation (AF), pauses, and bradycardia. Data transmission time is defined as the time from event occurrence to physician notification. All the arrhythmic events are adjudicated for accuracy.ResultsA total of 3510 events were transmitted in 61 patients over 7.1 ...

Conclusions: No clinically significant cardiac arrhythmias were recorded during OAC. The changes observed in the records of blood pressure and ECG monitoring show that OAC performed in accordance with the current guidelines does not pose a high risk to the patient's health and life as a result of cardiovascular reactions.

Remote monitoring has become standard of care for management of cardiac arrhythmias in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). However, its utility in heart failure management is unclear. A combination of CIED-derived parameters, including heart rate, respiratory rate, sensor-derived S3, and thoracic impedance, has been shown to be able to predict heart failure admissions in real world scenarios. The HeartLogic multisensor algorithm has been implemented in Boston Scientific CIEDs in current clinical use.
