Most of the data on atrial fibrillation is known from registries including mostly ambulatory patients. Less is known about atrial fibrillation among patients hospitalized at departments of medicine.
This article was published in the following journal.
Oral anticoagulation (OAC) is effective in stroke prevention in elderly patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), but older patients are also at greater risk of bleeding.
Oral anticoagulants reduce the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, many patients with atrial fibrillation at elevated stroke risk are not treated with oral anticoagulants.
Recent real-world data studies on the use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, provide data on the use of different DOAC according to patient charact...
Whether or not non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are associated with a lower risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) remains unkno...
Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the commonest cause of valvular heart disease and a common cause of heart failure in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Atrial fibrillation (AF) complicates RHD, precipitates a...
The present study has been designed to describe the health-related quality of life in patients with non valvular atrial fibrillation who have been prescribed a specific anticoagulant treat...
The objective of this registry is the characterization of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) with confirmed valvular heart disease (VHD) who are prescribed edoxaban in a real-life clin...
The primary objectives of this study are to compare the risk of major bleeding and stroke/systemic embolism (SE) events among oral anticoagulant (OAC)-naïve non-valvular atrial fibrillati...
In a population of patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), and treated with oral anticoagulants (OAC) in routine clinical practice in England, this study will describe patie...
The aim of the study LA-EU-01 was to examine the safety and the feasibility of the LAmbreTM Left Atrial Appendage Closure System in patients with non-valvular paroxymal, persistent or perm...
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
