Inhibition of Platelet Aggregation After Coronary Stenting in Patients Receiving Oral Anticoagulation.

Conrad Genz, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus,

<h4>Background</h4>Approximately 18% of patients with atrial fibrillation undergo a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to treat coronary heart disease. Pharmacological anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation and PCI involves a trade-off of potential ischemic and hemorrhagic complications.<h4>Methods</h4>This review is based on pertinent publications that were retrieved by a selective literature search, ...

Anticoagulant selection in relation to the SAMe-TT2R2 score in patients with atrial fibrillation: The GLORIA-AF registry.

George Ntaios, Menno V Huisman, Hans-Christoph Diener, Jonathan L Halperin, Christine Teutsch, Sabrina Marler, Venkatesh K Gurusamy, Milla Thompson, Gregory Y H Lip, Brian Olshansky, ,

<h4>Aim</h4>The SAMe-TT<sub>2</sub>R<sub>2</sub> score helps identify patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) likely to have poor anticoagulation control during anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) and those with scores >2 might be better managed with a target-specific oral anticoagulant (NOAC). We hypothesized that in clinical practice, VKAs may be prescribed less frequently ... Read more >>

Intracardiac echocardiography versus fluoroscopy for endovascular and endocardial catheter navigation during cryo-ablation of the slow pathway in AVNRT patients.

Blerim Luani, Thomas Rauwolf, Conrad Genz, Alexander Schmeißer, Marcus Wiemer, Rüdiger C Braun-Dullaeus,

<h4>Background</h4>A new zero-fluoroscopy technique for electrophysiology catheter navigation relying on intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) has been recently reported (Ice&ICE trial). We investigated potential differences in efficacy, safety or procedural performance between conventional fluoroscopy- and ICE-guided cryothermal ablation (CA) in symptomatic AVNRT patients.<h4>Methods</h4>Clinical and electrophysiological data of AVNRT patients included in the ...

Cerebrovascular events, bleeding complications and device related thrombi in atrial fibrillation patients with chronic kidney disease and left atrial appendage closure with the WATCHMAN™ device.

Blerim Luani, Conrad Genz, Joerg Herold, Andreas Mitrasch, Julius Mitusch, Marcus Wiemer, Alexander Schmeißer, Rüdiger C Braun-Dullaeus, Thomas Rauwolf,

<h4>Background</h4>Impaired renal function increases the bleeding risk, leading to a conservative prescription and frequent discontinuation of oral anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Interventional left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) might be an alternative therapeutic strategy for these patients.<h4>Methods</h4>We aimed to prospectively assess cerebrovascular (CE) and bleeding ...

Left atrial enlargement and clinical considerations in patients with or without a residual interatrial shunt after closure of the left atrial appendage with the WATCHMAN™-device.

Blerim Luani, Thomas Groscheck, Conrad Genz, Ivan Tanev, Thomas Rauwolf, Joerg Herold, Senad Medunjanin, Alexander Schmeisser, Rüdiger C Braun-Dullaeus,

BACKGROUND:Interventional closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, high thromboembolic and bleeding risk or bleeding history is an alternative therapeutic strategy to oral anticoagulation. It is not known if the exclusion of the LAA from the blood circulation affects the left atrial volume (LAV) ... Read more >>

Impact of internal and external electrical cardioversion on cardiac specific enzymes and inflammation in patients with atrial fibrillation and heart failure.

Philipp Stieger, Obaida R Rana, Erol Saygili, Haschmatulla Zazai, Thomas Rauwolf, Conrad Genz, Rajen Bali, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus, Samir M Said,

BACKGROUND:Implantable cardioverter/defibrillator (ICD) shocks can cause myocardial injury, contributing to the progression of the underlying heart disease. The aim was to evaluate whether internal electrical cardioversion (int-CV) via the ICD or conventional external CV (ext-CV) of persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) in heart failure (HF) patients induces myocardial injury and initiates ...

Zero-fluoroscopy cryothermal ablation of atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia guided by endovascular and endocardial catheter visualization using intracardiac echocardiography (Ice&ICE Trial).

Blerim Luani, Bernhard Zrenner, Maksim Basho, Conrad Genz, Thomas Rauwolf, Ivan Tanev, Alexander Schmeisser, Rüdiger C Braun-Dullaeus,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Stochastic damage of the ionizing radiation to both patients and medical staff is a drawback of fluoroscopic guidance during catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias. Therefore, emerging zero-fluoroscopy catheter-guidance techniques are of great interest.<h4>Methods and results</h4>We investigated, in a prospective pilot study, the feasibility and safety of the cryothermal (CA) slow-pathway ...

The Changing Landscape for Stroke Prevention in AF: Findings From the GLORIA-AF Registry Phase 2.

Menno V Huisman, Kenneth J Rothman, Miney Paquette, Christine Teutsch, Hans-Christoph Diener, Sergio J Dubner, Jonathan L Halperin, Chang Sheng Ma, Kristina Zint, Amelie Elsaesser, Dorothee B Bartels, Gregory Y H Lip, ,

<h4>Background</h4>GLORIA-AF (Global Registry on Long-Term Oral Antithrombotic Treatment in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation) is a prospective, global registry program describing antithrombotic treatment patterns in patients with newly diagnosed nonvalvular atrial fibrillation at risk of stroke. Phase 2 began when dabigatran, the first non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC), became available.<h4>Objectives</h4>This ... Read more >>

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy: What we have Learned in the Last 25 Years? (A Comparative Literature Review).

Samir M Said, Erol Saygili, Obaida R Rana, Conrad Genz, Judit Hahn, Rajen Bali, Soumya Varshney, Khaled Albouaini, Roland Prondzinsky, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus,

We performed a comparative literature review, to elucidate the major features of the Takotsubo (stress) cardiomyopathy (TCM) collected in last 25 years. TCM is characterized by left- or biventricular apical ballooning with a clinical presentation, electrocardiographic abnormalities, and biomarker profils similar to those seen in acute myocardial infarction. Epidemiological studies ... Read more >>

Marked prolongation of QRS duration after initiation of dronedarone therapy.

Conrad Genz, Hans D Esperer, Alexander Schmeisser, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus, Samir M Said,

Dronedarone is a relatively new antiarrhythmic drug and is held to be less proarrhythmic than comparable compounds, although its proarrhythmia potential in humans has not been sufficiently evaluated. We describe a so far unreported dronedarone effect, namely a significant alteration of both the morphology and the duration of the QRS ... Read more >>

Which patient is most likely to benefit from dronedarone? Analysis from the Magdeburg Dronedarone Registry (MADRE study).

Samir M Said, Hans D Esperer, Kathrin Kluba, Conrad Genz, Thomas Rauwolf, Alexander Schmeisser, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus,

Based on an analysis of the Magdeburg Dronedarone Registry data we sought to determine which patients could benefit from dronedarone therapy regarding rhythm control. The study included 191 patients (85 women) aged 63 ± 10 years with a history of paroxysmal or persistent AF and a follow-up of 14 ± 5 months. The total ... Read more >>

Intra-atrial endothelial lesion resulting from transseptal puncture for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation.

Conrad Genz, Hans D Esperer, Alexander Schmeisser, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus, Samir M Said,

Thromboembolic events are known complications of left atrial ablation therapy. We describe a complication which may also lead to systemic thromboembolism that has not been reported so far: the formation of a moving structure attached to the fossa ovalis after an attempted transseptal puncture in a 66-year old patient with ...

Efficacy and safety profile of dronedarone in clinical practice. Results of the Magdeburg Dronedarone Registry (MADRE study).

Samir M Said, Hans D Esperer, Kathrin Kluba, Conrad Genz, Anne K Wiedemann, Hagen Boenigk, Joerg Herold, Alexander Schmeisser, Ruediger C Braun-Dullaeus,

<h4>Background</h4>Dronedarone is a new antiarrhythmic agent that has only recently been approved for the therapy of atrial fibrillation (AF). Results regarding a broader spectrum of patients and experience accumulated in clinical practice are still very scarce. Therefore, we prospectively investigated the efficacy and tolerance of dronedarone in a real life ... Read more >>
