Immunothrombosis and new-onset atrial fibrillation in the general population: the Rotterdam Study

ConclusionWe found no associations between markers of immunothrombosis and new-onset AF in the general population. Inflammation and immunothrombosis may be associated with AF through other cardiovascular risk factors or predisposing conditions of AF. Our findings challenge the added value of biomarkers in AF risk prediction.Graphic abstract

CONCLUSIONS: In patients whose atrial fibrillation persisted after pulmonary vein isolation, the response to ibutilide administration could predict the recurrence of atrial arrhythmias after catheter ablation, which may be useful for risk stratification for recurrence of atrial fibrillation and individualised management of atrial fibrillation.PMID:34704587 | DOI:10.5830/CVJA-2021-044

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Dietary consumption of ω-3 fatty acids is correlated with a reduced incidence of cardiovascular events. Here, we investigated the effect of dietary ω-3 fatty acids on atrial fibrillation (AF) vulnerability in a canine model of AF and explored the related mechanisms.METHODS: Twenty four male beagle dogs (weight, 8-10 kg) were randomly divided into four groups: (a) sham-operated group (normal chow); (b) AF+FO [AF and normal chow supplemented with fish oil (FO): 0.6 g n-3 polyunsaturated fatty a...

Catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT) has for many years used the 12-lead ECG as an adjunct to contact mapping to localise the site of origin (SoO) of the arrhythmia. Its widespread use is due to the majority of induced VTs not being haemodynamically tolerated during ablation procedures.1 However, th...

AF is the most common sustained arrhythmia, both clinically and worldwide, with a lifetime incidence estimated at ~20%.1,2 The total number of cases of AF in the US is expected to exceed 2.5 million by the year 2030 and 7.5 million by 2050.3,4 Furthermore, AF carries significant morbidity and is one of the leading causes for hospitalisation in the US, with annual AF admiss...

Treatment Gaps in Advanced AF AF is a global health problem, affecting between 2% and 4% of adults worldwide and is increasing.1 Based on the Global Burden of Disease, Injuries and Risk Factors Study, an estimated 59.7 million people globally had prevalent AF or atrial flutter (AFL) in 2019 and approximately 300,000 deaths were attri...

Left atrial appendage (LAA) is a major source of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), and clinical benefits of LAA occlusion have been demonstrated in previous studies. Complete exclusion of LAA has been recently available with epicardial clipping device in the setting of minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS).

AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate factors associated with AF in patients with hyperthyroidism beyond heart failure (HF), coronary heart disease (CHD), or valvular diseases. A total of 136 patients (mean age, 52  ± 15 years; 86 [63%] female) who were diagnosed with hyperthyroidism for the first time were enrolled. Patients who had HF, CHD, or significant valvular diseases were excluded. Patients were classified into two groups according to the presence (group 1, n = 40) and absence of AF (group 2, n = 96). AF occurred in 40 (29%) patients and 23 (58%) ...
