AIMS: Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is the corner stone of modern rhythm control strategies in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is prevalent in more than 50% of patients undergoing AF ablation and studies have indicated a greater recurrence rate after PVI in patients with SDB. Herein, we study the effect of catheter-based PVI on AF in a pig model for SDB. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 11 sedated spontaneously breathing pigs, obstructive apnoeas were simulated by 75 seconds of intermittent negative upper airway pressure (INAP) applied by a negative pressure device connected to the endotracheal tube...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Monitoring current of injury (COI) during left bundle branch area pacing (LBBAP) implantation is useful to evaluate lead depth. Technical aspects for recording COI amplitude have not been well studied. Our aims were to evaluate the impact of high-pass filter settings on electrogram recordings during LBBAP implantation. METHODS: Consecutive patients with successful LBBAP implantation had unipolar recordings of COI at final lead position at different high-pass filter settings (0...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Previous studies have indicated a poorer survival among women following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), but the mechanisms explaining this difference remains largely uncertain.This study aimed to assess the survival after OHCA among women and men and explore the role of potential mediators, such as resuscitation characteristics, prior comorbidity, and socioeconomic factors. METHODS: This was a population-based cohort study including emergency medical service-treated OHCA reported to the Swedish Registry for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in 2010-2020, linked to nationwide Swedish healthcare registries...

Imaging using cardiac computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MR) has become an important option for anatomic and substrate delineation in complex atrial and ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation procedures. CT more common than MR has been used to detect procedure-associated complications like esophageal, cerebral and vascular injury. This clinical consensus statement summarizes the current knowledge of CT and MR to facilitate electrophysiological procedures, the current value of real-time integration of imaging-derived anatomy and substrate information during the procedure and the current role of CT and MR in diagnosing relevant procedure-related complications...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is an important public health problem worldwide, accounting for an estimated 6 to 20% of total mortality. A significant proportion of SCD is caused by inherited heart disease, especially among the young. An autopsy is crucial to establish a diagnosis of inherited heart disease, allowing for subsequent identification of family members who require cardiac evaluation. Autopsy of cases of unexplained sudden death in the young is recommended by both the European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ablation of monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (MMVT) has been shown to reduce shock frequency and improve survival. We aimed to compare cause-specific risk factors of MMVT and polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PVT)/ventricular fibrillation (VF) and to develop predictive models. METHODS: The multicenter retrospective cohort study included 2,668 patients (age 63.1±13.0 y; 23% female; 78% white; 43% nonischemic cardiomyopathy, left ventricular ejection fraction 28...

OBJECTIVES: To characterize the diagnosis, frequency, and procedural implications of septal venous channel perforation during left bundle branch area pacing (LBBAP). METHODS: All consecutive patients undergoing LBBAP over an 8-month period were prospectively studied. During lead placement, obligatory septal contrast injection was performed twice, at initiation (implant entry zone) and completion (fixation zone). An intuitive fluoroscopic schema using orthogonal views (LAO/RAO) and familiar landmarks is described...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Clinical concerns exist about the potential proarrhythmic effects of the sodium channel blockers flecainide and propafenone (SCB) in patients with cardiovascular disease. SCB were used to deliver early rhythm control (ERC) therapy in EAST-AFNET 4. METHODS: We analysed the primary safety outcome (death, stroke, or serious adverse events related to rhythm-control therapy) and primary efficacy outcome (cardiovascular death, stroke and hospitalization for worsening of heart failure or acute coronary syndrome) during SCB-intake for ERC patients (n = 1395) in EAST-AFNET 4...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Pulsed field ablation (PFA) for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) potentially offers improved safety and procedural efficiencies compared to thermal ablation. Opportunities remain to improve effective circumferential lesion delivery, safety, and workflow of first generation PFA systems. Here we aim to evaluate the initial clinical experience with a balloon-in-basket, 3D integrated PFA system with a purpose-built form factor for pulmonary vein (PV) isolation...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Women have been historically underrepresented in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) trials. No data on sex differences regarding subcutaneous-ICDs (S-ICD) carriers have been described. Aim of our study was to investigate sex-related differences among unselected S-ICD recipients. METHODS: Consecutive patients enrolled in the multicenter, international i-SUSI registry were analyzed. Comparisons between sexes were performed using a 1:1 propensity matching adjusted analysis for age, body mass index (BMI), left ventricular function and substrate...

BACKGROUND: Arrhythmia-induced Cardiomyopathy (AiCM) represents a subtype of acute heart failure (HF) in the context of sustained arrhythmia. Clear definitions and management recommendations for AiCM are lacking. PURPOSE: The European Heart Rhythm Association Scientific Initiatives Committee (EHRA SIC) conducted a survey to explore the current definitions and management of patients with AiCM among European and non-European electrophysiologists. METHODS: A 25-item online questionnaire was developed and distributed among EP specialists on the EHRA SIC website and on social media between September 4th and October 5th 2023...

AIMS: Blood stasis is crucial in developing left atrial (LA) thrombi. LA appendage peak flow velocity (LAAFV) is a quantitative parameter for estimating thromboembolic risk. However, its impact on LA thrombus resolution and clinical outcomes remains unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: The LAT study was a multicenter observational study investigating patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and silent LA thrombi detected by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Among 17,436 TEE procedures for patients with AF, 297 patients (1...

OBJECTIVE: We examined whether thickness of the basal muscular interventricular septum (IVS), as measured by pre-procedural computed tomography (CT), could be used to identify the risk of conduction disturbances following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). BACKGROUND: The IVS is a pivotal region of the electrical conduction system of the heart where the atrioventricular conduction axis is located. METHODS: Included were 78 patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent CT imaging prior to TAVR...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Pulmonary Vein Isolation (PVI) is the cornerstone of ablation for atrial fibrillation. Confirmation of PVI can be challenging due to far field electrograms and sometimes requires additional pacing maneuvers or mapping. This prospective multicenter study assessed the agreement between a previously trained automated algorithm designed to determine vein isolation status with expert opinion in real-world clinical setting. METHOD: Consecutive patients scheduled for PVI were recruited at four centers...
