BACKGROUND: Patent foramen ovale (PFO) affects 20-34% of adults and is associated with strokes and other disorders. The conventional treatment for PFO-related strokes is a closure procedure. The metal device is associated with some adverse events. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to investigate the efficacy and safety of PFO closure using cryoablation without implantation in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who underwent pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). METHODS: We split the 22 patients with both PFO and AF who underwent PVI via cryoablation into two groups: standard PVI + atrial septum (AS) cryoablation (group 1, n = 11) and standard PVI (group 2, n = 11)...

BACKGROUND: Areas of abnormal and/or heterogenous conduction velocity (CV) are important ablation targets for ventricular tachycardias. Yet, precise assessment of CV in clinical contact mapping remains challenging. Numerous different CV estimation methods have been proposed. OBJECTIVE: To compare the automated LAT-independent omnipolar-based CV estimation method termed "Wave Speed" (WS) with four established LAT-based methods and formally establish the quantitative differences between them...

BACKGROUND: Conduction disturbances play an important role in the occurrence and development of heart failure (HF). Studies suggest autoantibodies may attack conduction system. However, it is unclear whether autoantibodies are associated with conduction disturbances in patients with HF. OBJECTIVE: Assess whether anti-SSA, anti-Ro/Sjögren's syndrome-related antigen A antibodies known for congenital atrioventricular block, is associated with conduction disturbances in patients with HF METHODS: This retrospective observational study used data from patients with HF who admitted to Beijing Anzhen Hospital between January 2018 and June 2022...

BACKGROUND: In patients with a history of stroke or those at high risk of developing stroke, a continuous rhythm monitoring strategy using implantable loop recorders (ILR) is often performed to screen for atrial fibrillation (AF). OBJECTIVES: We performed a systematic review (MEDLINE and EMBASE) including randomized controlled trials comparing ILR-based continuous rhythm monitoring versus usual care in patients with a history of stroke or patients at high risk of developing stroke...

Since 2000s CRT became a revolutionary therapy for heart failure with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF) and wide QRS. However, about one third of CRT recipients do not show a favorable response. This review of current literature aims to better define the concept of CRT response/non-response. The diagnosis of CRT non-responder should be viewed as a continuum, and it cannot rely solely on a single parameter. Moreover, several patients' baseline features might predict an unfavorable response. A strong collaboration between HF specialists and electrophysiologists is key to overcoming this challenge with multiple strategies...

BACKGROUND: Where activation wavefront curvature is convexly shaped, functional conduction block can occur. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine whether left ventricular (LV) wall thickness determined from contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) is useful to localize such areas in clinical postinfarction reentrant ventricular tachycardia (VT). METHODS: We evaluated data from six patients who underwent catheter ablation for postinfarction VT...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) confers an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) independent of its associated cardiovascular comorbidities. Diabetes mellitus induces adverse structural, electrophysiological, and autonomic cardiac remodeling which can increase one's risk of ventricular arrhythmias and SCD. Although glycemic control and prevention of microvascular and macrovascular complications are cornerstones in the management of DM, they are not adequate for the prevention of SCD. In this narrative review, we describe the contribution of DM to the pathophysiology of SCD beyond its role in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent ventricular tachycardia (VT) can be treated by substrate modification of the myocardial scar by catheter ablation during sinus rhythm without VT induction. Better defining this arrhythmic substrate could help improve outcome and reduce ablation burden. OBJECTIVE: Limiting ablation within post-infarct scar to conduction channels within the scar to reduce VT recurrence. METHODS: Patients undergoing catheter ablation for recurrent implantable defibrillator (ICD) therapy for post-infarct VT were recruited at 5 centres...

BACKGROUND: Obesity confers higher risks of cardiac arrhythmias. The extent to which weight loss reverses subclinical proarrhythmic adaptations in arrhythmia-free obese individuals is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To study structural, electrophysiological and autonomic remodelling in arrhythmia-free obese patients, and their reversibility with bariatric surgery using electrocardiographic imaging (ECGi). METHODS: Sixteen arrhythmia-free obese patients (43+12years, 13 female, BMI 46...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether advances in management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and introduction of novel oral anticoagulants (NOAC) have changed outcomes in patients with ACS with concomitant atrial fibrillation (AF) . OBJECTIVE: Examine the incidence of AF in patients admitted for ACS and evaluate its association with adverse outcomes given the recent advances in management of both diseases. METHODS: Natural language processing search algorithms identified AF in patients admitted with ACS across 13 Northwell Health Hospitals from 2015 to 2021...

BACKGROUND: Mitral annular disjunction (MAD) is associated with ventricular arrhythmia in mitral valve prolapse (MVP). The proportional risk from MAD and other predictors of ventricular arrhythmia in MVP have not been well characterized. OBJECTIVE: To identify predictors of complex or frequent ventricular ectopy (cfVE) in MVP and quantify risk of cfVE and mortality in MVP with MAD. METHODS: We studied 632 adult patients with MVP on transthoracic echocardiography at the University of North Carolina Medical Center from 2016-2019 (median age [IQR] 64 [52-74] years; 52...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation carries the risk of silent cerebral event (SCE) and silent cerebral lesion (SCL). Though "silent," these may have long-term clinical implications and are challenging to study as post-procedural MRI is not standard-of-care. OBJECTIVE: The neurological assessment subgroup (NAS) of ADVENT compared cerebral effects of pulsed field ablation (PFA) to standard-of-care thermal ablation. METHODS: The NAS included consecutive randomized PFA and thermal ablation patients who received post-procedural brain MRI 12-48 hours post-ablation...
