BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation is associated with significant morbidity and is predicted by atrial high rate events. The early detection of AF is paramount to timely interventions to reduce the morbidity of AF. The DX ICD system combined with Home Monitoring® allows for continuous atrial rhythm monitoring without the need for a dedicated atrial lead. OBJECTIVE: To establish the reaction to and timing of reactions to the detection of AHRE.

Objective: Wake-up stroke (WUS) comprises a significant proportion of ischemic strokes. However, due to unclear onset, these patients are often not considered for reperfusion therapy. The objective of this study was to investigate the clinical and imaging differences between WUS patients and those with clear-onset stroke, documenting any sex, age, or risk factor predilection for WUS. Methods: This prospective observational cohort study used an ongoing stroke registry to identify patients with acute ischemic stroke admitted to a hospital in Saudi Arabia within 5 days of symptom onset from April 2018 to March 2020...

Despite the global COVID-19 pandemic, during the past 2 years, there have been numerous advances in our understanding of arrhythmia mechanisms and diagnosis and in new therapies. We increased our understanding of risk factors and mechanisms of atrial arrhythmias, the prediction of atrial arrhythmias, response to treatment, and outcomes using machine learning and artificial intelligence. There have been new technologies and techniques for atrial fibrillation ablation, including pulsed field ablation. There have been new randomized trials in atrial fibrillation ablation, giving insight about rhythm control, and long-term outcomes...

BACKGROUND: A compressible lattice-tip catheter designed for focal ablation using radiofrequency or pulsed-field energies has been recently described. The objective of this study is to describe a new lattice catheter designed for single-shot pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). METHODS: This 8F catheter consists of a compressible lattice tip that is delivered over the wire and is expandable up to 34 mm (SpherePVI™, Affera Inc.). Pulsed field ablation (PFA) was applied from 6 elements using a biphasic waveform of microsecond scale (± 1...

Balloon ablation therapy has recently been used for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. Laser balloons possess the property in which the balloon size can be changed. Standard laser balloon ablation (Standard LBA) was followed by additional ablation using a maximally extended balloon (Extended LBA) and its lesion characteristics were compared to cryoballoon ablation (CBA), another balloon technology. From June 2020 to July 2021, patients with paroxysmal AF who underwent an initial pulmonary vein (PV) isolation were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to identify risk factors and create a predictive model for ischemic stroke (IS) in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) using the Bayesian network (BN) approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We collected clinical data of 634 patients with DCM treated at three referral management centers in Beijing between 2016 and 2021, including 127 with and 507 without IS. The patients were randomly divided into training (441 cases) and test (193 cases) sets at a ratio of 7:3...

BACKGROUND: Hydroxychloroquine is used as an antimalarial and immunomodulator, however it can induce QT prolongation that could potentially lead to fatal arrhythmia. We investigated changes in QT interval in long-term hydroxychloroquine users, and identified possible risk factors associated with significant QTc prolongation. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 3603 patients who received long-term hydroxychloroquine treatment from 2009 to 2019, of whom 167 had electrocardiography (ECG) results before and during hydroxychloroquine therapy...

BACKGROUND: Atrial electromechanical delay (EMD) and left atrial (LA) phasic function have been demonstrated to be predictors for the development of atrial fibrillation (AF). In the present study, we aimed to evaluate atrial EMD and LA phasic function in individuals with electrocardiographic early repolarization pattern (ERP). METHODS: Eighty consecutive individuals with ERP and 40 age- and gender-matched control subjects without ERP were compared in this cross-sectional study...

BACKGROUND: The occurrence of new-onset atrial fibrillation (NOAF) post-acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with worse outcomes. In this study, we sought to assess the predictive effect of stress hyperglycemia ratio (SHR) and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) to predict NOAF in patients with AMI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We recruited 3,194 individuals with AMI but free of atrial fibrillation (AF). AMI cases were stratified into groups according to SHR and NLR quartiles and were further categorized based on diabetes status...

Sick sinus syndrome (SSS) is a refractory arrhythmia disease caused by the pathological changes of sinoatrial node and its adjacent tissues. 2,251 publications related to SSS were retrieved from Web of Science database from 2000 to 2022 and analyzed by using VOS viewer and CiteSpace software. The results showed the United States dominated the field, followed by Japan, Germany, and China. SSS was closely related to risk factors such as atrial fibrillation and aging. Sick sinus syndrome, atrial fibrillation and sinus node dysfunction were the top three keywords that had the strongest correlation with the study...

INTRODUCTION: Unrecognized incomplete pulmonary vein (PV) isolation during the index procedure, can be a major cause of clinical recurrences of atrial fibrillation (AF) after cryoballoon (CB) ablation. We aimed to characterize the extension of the lesions produced by CB ablation and to assess the value of using an ultra-high resolution electroanatomic mapping (UHDM) system to detect incomplete CB lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-nine consecutive patients from the CHARISMA registry undergoing AF ablation at four Italian centers were prospectively evaluated...

Atrial fibrosis, a symbol of atrial structural remodelling, is a complex process involved in the occurrence and maintenance of atrial fibrillation (AF). Atrial fibrosis is regulated by multiple factors. Sulfur containing amino acids and their metabolites, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2 S) and taurine, can inhibit the process of atrial fibrosis and alleviate atrial remodeling. However, homocysteine can promote the activation of atrial fibroblasts and further promote atrial fibrosis. In this review, we will focus on the recent progress in atrial structural changes and molecular mechanisms of atrial fibrosis, as well as the regulatory roles and possible mechanisms of sulfur containing amino acids and their metabolites in atrial fibrosis...
