Long working hours as a risk factor for atrial fibrillation: a multi-cohort study
ConclusionIndividuals who worked long hours were more likely to develop atrial fibrillation than those working standard hours.

Long-term symptom improvement and patient satisfaction following catheter ablation of supraventricular tachycardia: insights from the German ablation registry
Conclusion</div>Ablation therapy for SVT is a safe procedure bringing symptomatic improvement and satisfaction to three quarters of patients after 1 year. Even in patients with arrhythmia recurrence, a high satisfaction level and adherence to the ablating institution could be documented. Strikingly high mortality and stroke rates in follow-up were observed in AFL patients, who apparently need consistent long-term anticoagulation and more medical attention.</span>

A frameshift deletion in the sarcomere gene MYL4 causes early-onset familial atrial fibrillation
Conclusions</div>Through a population approach we found a loss of function mutation in the myosin gene <span style="font-style:italic;">MYL4</span> that, in the homozygous state, is completely penetrant for early-onset AF. The finding may provide novel mechanistic insight into the pathophysiology of this complex arrhythmia.</span>

Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation is associated with lower incidence of stroke and death: data from Swedish health registries
Conclusion Ablation may be associated with lower incidence of ischaemic stroke and death in patients with AF. This beneficial finding appears more pronounced in patients with higher thromboembolic risk.

Randomized trial of atrial arrhythmia monitoring to guide anticoagulation in patients with implanted defibrillator and cardiac resynchronization devices
Conclusion In patients with implanted defibrillators, the strategy of early initiation and interruption of anticoagulation based on remotely detected AT did not prevent thromboembolism and bleeding. Clinical trial registration IMPACT ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT00559988 http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00559988?term=NCT00559988&rank=1.

Prognostic impact of supraventricular premature complexes in community-based health checkups: The Ibaraki Prefectural Health Study
Conclusion The presence of SVPCs in 12-lead electrocardiograms was a strong predictor of AF development, and associated with increased risk of CVD in general population.

The Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Pilot Study: an European Survey on Methodology and results of catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation conducted by the European Heart Rhythm Association
Conclusion The AFib Ablation Pilot Study provided crucial information on the epidemiology, management, and outcomes of catheter ablation of AFib in a real-world setting. The methods used to assess the success of the procedure appeared at least suboptimal. Even in this context, the 12-month success rate appears to be somewhat lower to the one reported clinical trials.
