Treatment of Cryptogenic Stroke Patients with Atrial Fibrillation Detected by Insertable Cardiac Monitors Reduces Recurrent Stroke Risk to Background Levels.

E Martin Kloosterman, Jonathan Z Rosman, Eric J Berkowitz, Murray Rosenbaum, Zachary A Wettenstein,

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a known risk factor of ischemic stroke with a reported fivefold increase in incidence. However, it is not well established whether treatment with oral anticoagulation (OAC) in cryptogenic stroke patients with AF, detected by insertable cardiac monitors (ICMs), reduces the risk of recurrent stroke. We aimed ... Read more >>

Direct Oral Anticoagulants in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation and Bioprosthetic Valves-A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Mohammed Ruzieh, Deborah L Wolbrette, Gerald V Naccarelli,

Oral anticoagulation is recommended for patients with atrial fibrillation and an elevated stroke risk. Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are generally preferred over vitamin K antagonists. Nonetheless, there controversy persists regarding whether DOACs should be used in patients with atrial fibrillation and bioprosthetic valves. Therefore, we conducted this systematic review and ...

Choice of Steerable Sheath Impacts Contact Force Stability During Pulmonary Vein Isolation.

Evan Hiner, Dipak P Shah,

A stable contact force (CF) is correlated with more effective radiofrequency (RF) ablation (RFA) lesions and long-term procedural outcomes. Efforts to improve catheter stability include jet ventilation, pacing, steerable sheaths, and CF-sensing ablation catheters. This study compares CF stability and effective RF lesions between two commercially available steerable sheaths. Thirty ... Read more >>

A Direction-independent, High-density Mapping Catheter Provides Electrophysiological Advantage in Complex Atrial Tachycardia Ablation Following Pulmonary Vein Isolation.

Gregory Woo, Catherine Markert, Rebekah Montgomery,

Catheter ablation of recurrent atrial arrhythmias following pulmonary vein isolation can be challenging given the complex nature of previously ablated tissue, and managing these already complex cases may be rendered more difficult by the impact of wavefront directionality on mapping catheter orientation, which can make the accurate identification of arrhythmogenic ...

Cryoballoon Ablation for Persistent Atrial Fibrillation in a Patient with a Left Pneumonectomy.

Vijaywant Brar, Huzaifa Ahmad, Manavotam Singh, Susan O'Donoghue, Seth J Worley,

Pulmonary vein (PV) isolation (PVI) is the most important component of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) and can be achieved by radiofrequency or cryoballoon ablation (CBA). The CBA system has shown excellent efficacy and safety in a number of clinical trials and is independent of the PV anatomy. However, ... Read more >>

Body Piercing with a Metallic Tongue Stud Resulting in Ineffective Implantable Cardioverter-defibrillator Shocks: "Heart to Mouth".

Manavotam Singh, Vijaywant Brar, Nebu Alexander, Rustin Tashayyod, Susan O'Donoghue, Seth J Worley,

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) provide circulatory support to patients with severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. Many such patients have a pre-existing implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) at the time of their LVAD surgery. LVAD implantation can alter the ICD lead parameters, including R-wave sensing, right ventricular capture threshold, and impedance. These ... Read more >>

Ventricular Fibrillation Cardiopulmonary Arrest Following Micra™ Leadless Pacemaker Implantation.

Huzaifa Ahmad, Vijaywant Brar, Nausharwan Butt, Vishaka Chetram, Seth J Worley, Susan O'Donoghue,

Leadless cardiac pacemakers such as the Micra™ transcatheter leadless pacing system (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA) are an alternative to traditional transvenous pacemakers. Implantation of leadless pacemakers, albeit safe, may be associated with complications, including cardiac tamponade; high capture thresholds; and, rarely, ventricular arrhythmias. We report a case of ventricular fibrillation ... Read more >>

Patient Perceptions and Quality of Life in Pacemaker Recipients.

Maria Polikandrioti,

Quality of life (QoL) reflects the multidimensional impact of a clinical condition and its treatment on patients' daily lives. Although permanent cardiac pacemakers (PPMs) have made a significant contribution to the improvement of patients' QoL, patients' perceptions remain crucial after implantation. Hence, the present study was carried out to explore ... Read more >>

Atrial Electrography for Postoperative Tachyarrhythmia Analysis in Patients.

Ashley M Peotter, Diane R Brown, Matthew R Kalscheur, Nicholas H Von Bergen,

The over 400,000 cardiac surgeries performed in the United States each year hold a risk for the postoperative complication of arrhythmias. Currently, bedside monitoring of surface electrocardiogram leads is used to interpret arrhythmias despite the evidence that atrial electrograms (AEGs) offer superior rhythm discrimination. This hesitancy to use the AEG ... Read more >>

Havva Tugba Gursoy, Senay Funda Dereagzi, Ugur Caliskan, Ceren Yağmur Doğru, Furkan Kulekci, Zeynep Kaplan, Burak Bahtiyar, Andac Al, Ozcan Ozeke,

Many factors and technical problems may alter the interpretation of electrocardiograms (ECGs). Infrequently, an artifact is considered to be the cause of ST-segment elevation, especially in asymptomatic patients. An important difference between true ST-segment elevation attributable to myocardial infarction and an artifact is that the baseline elevation in an artifact ... Read more >>
