Summary of "Ventricular pro-arrhythmic phenotype, arrhythmic substrate, ageing and mitochondrial dysfunction in peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ coactivator-1β deficient (Pgc-1β) murine hearts."

Ageing and age-related bioenergetic conditions including obesity, diabetes mellitus and heart failure constitute clinical ventricular arrhythmic risk factors.

Cardiac Resynchronization is Pro-arrhythmic in the Absence of Reverse Ventricular Remodelling: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) has been shown to reduce mortality and heart failure (HF) hospitalization but its effects on the rate of ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) appears to be neutral. We...

Added Value of 3- Versus 2-Dimensional Echocardiography Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction to Predict Arrhythmic Risk in Patients With Left Ventricular Dysfunction.

The study sought to evaluate the potential clinical impact of using 3-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) to measure left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) in patients considered for implantable car...

Substrates and potential therapeutics of ventricular arrhythmias in heart failure.

Heart failure (HF) is a clinical syndrome characterized by ventricular contractile dysfunction. About 50% of death in patients with HF are due to fetal ventricular arrhythmias including ventricular ta...

Fragmentation of QRS complex during ventricular pacing is associated with ventricular arrhythmic events in patients with left ventricular dysfunction.

QRS fragmentation (fQRS) during baseline ventricular conduction, a myocardial fibrosis marker, is associated with increased risk of ventricular tachyarrhythmias but may not manifest unless ventricular...

Microvolt T-wave alternans and autonomic nervous system parameters can be helpful in the identification of low-arrhythmic risk patients with ischemic left ventricular systolic dysfunction.

The role of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) placement in the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in all consecutive patients with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ...

Acute Mechanical Response to Anti-arrhythmic Drug Therapy

The aim of this study is to determine if anti-arrhythmic drugs with a sodium channel-blocking mechanism exert a detrimental electromechanical effect on cardiac function in patients dependi...

Empagliflozin Versus Placebo on the Rate of Arrhythmic Events in Heart Failure Patients

Empagliflozin treatment in high cardiovascular risk patients has been shown to have a relatively rapid powerful capability in reducing cardiovascular mortality. Among the suggested mechani...

FLAT Study: First Line Ablation Therapy for Treatment of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

The objective of this multicenter randomized study is to establish the effectiveness of treatment for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF), in patients not previously treated with anti-arrh...


This is a prospective, multi-center cohort study of patients with a history of coronary artery disease (CAD) and documentation of either a prior myocardial infarction (MI) or mild to moder...

VERRARI - "Are Ventricular Arrhythmic Episodes Reduced by Rate Response in ICDs?"

"The purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of the rate response function of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) on the frequency of ventricular arrhythmias in patie...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A hypotensive agent with some anti-arrhythmic effects.

A major metabolite of PROCAINAMIDE. Its anti-arrhythmic action may cause cardiac toxicity in kidney failure.

One of the ADRENERGIC BETA-ANTAGONISTS used as an antihypertensive, anti-anginal, and anti-arrhythmic agent.

An agent that blocks the release of adrenergic transmitters and may have other actions. It was formerly used as an antihypertensive agent, but is now proposed as an anti-arrhythmic.

A class I anti-arrhythmic agent (one that interferes directly with the depolarization of the cardiac membrane and thus serves as a membrane-stabilizing agent) with a depressant action on the heart similar to that of guanidine. It also possesses some anticholinergic and local anesthetic properties.
