The combination of coronary sinus ostial atresia/abnormalities and a small persistent left superior vena cava-Opportunity for left ventricular lead implantation and unrecognized source of thromboembolic stroke.

Fengwei Zou, Seth J Worley, Torkel Steen, Matthew McKillop, Santosh Padala, Susan O'Donoghue, Basar Candemir, Khalil Kanjwal, Michael Kaufman, Sahar Mouram, Matthew Sellers, David Strouse, Athanasios Thomaides, Devi Nair, Cyrus A Hadadi, Alexander Kushnir,

<h4>Background</h4>Coronary sinus (CS) ostial atresia/abnormalities prevent access to the CS from the right atrium (RA) for left ventricular (LV) lead implantation. Some patients with CS ostial abnormalities also have a small persistent left superior vena cava (sPLSVC).<h4>Objective</h4>The purpose of this study was to describe CS ostial abnormalities and sPLSVC as ...

Minimally invasive thoracoscopic surgery is an effective approach for treating inappropriate sinus tachycardia.

Seyed Hossein Aalaei-Andabili, William M Miles, Thomas A Burkart, Mark E Panna, Jamie B Conti, Matthew S McKillop, Thomas M Beaver,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST) is characterized by increased heart rate out of proportion to normal physiologic demand. IST ablation is challenging for the electrophysiology community due to the epicardial location of the sinus node and the risk of phrenic nerve (PN) injury during catheter ablation. In this study, we investigated ... Read more >>

Meta-Analysis Comparing Catheter-Guided Ablation Versus Conventional Medical Therapy for Patients With Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure With Reduced Ejection Fraction.

Akram Y Elgendy, Ahmed N Mahmoud, Muhammad S Khan, Maryam R Sheikh, Mohammad K Mojadidi, Mohamed Omer, Islam Y Elgendy, Anthony A Bavry, Kenneth A Ellenbogen, William M Miles, Matthew McKillop,

The prognostic benefit of catheter ablation (CA) for atrial fibrillation in the setting of heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (EF) is unclear. A systematic search of medical literature was limited to randomized controlled trials. The primary outcome was all-cause mortality, and secondary outcomes were HF hospitalizations, stroke, left ...

Iatrogenic Ventricular Fibrillation after Direct-Current Cardioversion of Preexcited Atrial Fibrillation Caused by Inadvertent T-Wave Synchronization.

Michael R Kaufmann, Matthew S McKillop, Thomas A Burkart, Mark Panna, Jamie B Conti, William M Miles,

Direct-current cardioversion is an important means of managing arrhythmias. During treatment, carefully synchronizing energy delivery to the QRS complex is necessary to avoid ventricular fibrillation caused by a shock during the vulnerable period of ventricular repolarization, that is, a shock on the T wave. The presence of an accessory pathway ... Read more >>

In-Hospital Cerebrovascular Outcomes of Patients With Atrial Fibrillation and Cancer (from the National Inpatient Sample Database).

Ayman Elbadawi, Islam Y Elgendy, Le Dung Ha, Basarat Baig, Marwan Saad, Hussain Adly, Gbolahan O Ogunbayo, Odunayo Olorunfemi, Matthew S Mckillop, Scott A Maffett,

Limited data are available regarding the impact of cancer on cerebrovascular accidents in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). We queried the Nationwide Inpatient Survey Database to identify patients who have diagnostic code for AF. We performed a 1:1 propensity matching based on the CHA2DS2VASc score and other risk factors between ... Read more >>

Impact of a Pharmacy-Cardiology Collaborative Practice on Dofetilide Safety Monitoring.

Lieth H Quffa, Mark Panna, Michael R Kaufmann, Matthew McKillop, Nicole Maltese Dietrich, Andrew J Franck,

<h4>Background</h4>Limited studies have been published examining dofetilide's postmarketing use and its recommended monitoring.<h4>Objective</h4>To evaluate the impact of a collaborative pharmacy-cardiology antiarrhythmic drug (AAD) monitoring program on dofetilide monitoring.<h4>Methods</h4>This retrospective cohort study was performed to assess if a novel monitoring program improved compliance with dofetilide-specific monitoring parameters based on the Food ...

Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Increases Inflammation-Chemokine Modulation Suppresses Activation of Leukocytes Isolated after Ablation.

Mohammad Al-Ani, Sriram Ambadapadi, Jordan R Yaron, Donghang Zheng, Adisson Fortunel, Maia Doroton-Guevara, Liying Liu, Sufi Morshed, Jay Fricker, William Miles, Matthew McKillop, Alexandra Lucas,

<h4>Aims</h4>Atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation is associated with increased circulating markers of inflammation. Innate immune or inflammation pathways up-regulate mononuclear cell responses and may increase the risk for recurrent arrhythmia. Chemokines and serine protease coagulation pathways both activate innate immune responses. Here, we measured inflammatory markers in peripheral blood samples from ... Read more >>

Postgraduate Education in Quality Improvement Methods: Initial Results of the Fellows' Applied Quality Training (FAQT) Curriculum.

David E Winchester, Thomas A Burkart, Calvin Y Choi, Matthew S McKillop, Rebecca J Beyth, Phillipp Dahm,

<h4>Objective</h4>Training in quality improvement (QI) is a pillar of the next accreditation system of the Accreditation Committee on Graduate Medical Education and a growing expectation of physicians for maintenance of certification. Despite this, many postgraduate medical trainees are not receiving training in QI methods. We created the Fellows Applied Quality ... Read more >>
