Variation of kalemia and electrocardiographic predictors of sudden cardiac death along hemodialysis sessions
ConclusionAccording to our study, we noted that, along HD sessions, with the decrease of kalemia, a significant decrease of T/R ratio occurred which may lead to a potential risk of cardiac arrhythmia and SCD. (Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements)

Predictive factors of cardiac rehabilitation's failure in patients undergoing a continuous endurance training program.A retrospective study
ConclusionThe fifth training session, diabetes and COPD were associated with continuous endurance training program failure. Moreover, it could exist an inverse proportional relationship between functional capacity improvement from the first to the fifth session and the risk of failure. According to these results, we could provide a more adjusted endurance training program for these patients. (Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements)

Management of acute myocardial infarction occurring during sport practice: Contemporary data from the ‘obseRvatoire des Infarctus de Côte d’Or’ (RICO) survey
ConclusionsFrom this large series, thrombolysis was rare, but thromboaspiration was performed in nearly one third of patients; culprit lesions were often treated by direct stenting, with a DES in more than 2/3 of cases. A re-intervention procedure was often needed to treat other lesions, more often with DES rather than CABG. (Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements)

Predictors of changes in glomerular filtration rate and outcomes in patients with atrial fibrillation
ConclusionsIncidence rates of IS/TE, mortality and bleeding increased with worsening eGFR. Worsening eGFR was an independent predictor of IS/TE and bleeding, and a better predictor of IS/TE than renal impairment in AF. We were able to identify predictors of worsening renal function, which may help to tag patients needing regular FU for appropriate adaptation of antithrombotic therapy.

Vitamin K antagonists and changes in glomerular filtration rate in patients with atrial fibrillation
ConclusionsWe found that AF patients with VKA use did not have a worse eGFR evolution during FU than those not treated with oral anticoagulation. Patients treated with VKA with labile INR or likely to have poor anticoagulation control neither had a worse eGFR evolution. These Results suggest that instable INR might not be the main determinant of anticoagulant-related nephropathy. (Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements)
