Predictors of Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting: A Prospective Cohort Study

ConclusionThere are a wide range of significant epidemiological, clinical, and operative predictors for the development of post-CABG AF including older age, female gender, large LA diameter, higher CHA2DS2-VASc score, valve replacement and postoperative inotropic support. Nevertheless, further large-scale studies are still needed to confirm our findings.

CONCLUSION: DPP-4 inhibitors do not seem to confer any significant cardiovascular benefit for patients with T2DM, while they do not seem to be associated with a significant risk for any major cardiac arrhythmias, except for atrial flutter. Therefore, this drug class should not be the treatment of choice for patients with established cardiovascular disease or multiple risk factors, except for those cases when newer antidiabetics (glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists and sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors) are not tolerated, contraindicated or not affordable for the patient.PMID:34754403 | PMC:PMC8554356 | DOI:1...

AbstractThe prediction of a perioperative adverse cardiovascular event (PACE) is an important clinical issue in the medical management of patients undergoing noncardiac surgery. Although several predictors have been reported, simpler and more practical predictors of PACE have been needed. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictors of PACE in noncardiac surgery. We retrospectively analyzed 723 patients who were scheduled for elective noncardiac surgery and underwent preoperative examinations including 12-lead electrocardiography, transthoracic echocardiography, and blood test. PACE was defined as cardiac death,...
