Cardioversion is an essential component of rhythm control strategy for atrial fibrillation. The thromboembolic risk of cardioversion is well established and the mechanisms behind the phenomenon have b...
To assess the impact of the introduction of direct oral anticoagulants upon the outcomes from elective electrical cardioversion for atrial fibrillation.
Clinicians pre-treat patients with amiodarone to increase the efficacy of electrical cardioversion for atrial fibrillation (AF). We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized contro...
Although rhythm control has failed to demonstrate long-term benefits over rate control in long-standing episodes of atrial fibrillation (AF), there is little evidence concerning recent-onset ones. We ...
The purpose of this study is to study the effects of transthoracic electrical cardioversion for restoration of sinus rhythm in patients who present with recent onset atrial fibrillation, w...
Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and is expected to affect about 30 million North Americans and Europeans by 2050. Atrial fibrillation is associated with increased...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether fish oil supplements may be beneficial in preventing the recurrence of atrial fibrillation after cardioversion. Atrial fibrillation is ...
A symptomatic episode of the heart rhythm disorder 'atrial fibrillation' (AF) is a frequent reason for visits to the emergency department. Currently, in the majority of cases, immediate (e...
To investigate if in acute symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF) the early (>2 hrs but within 12 hrs of the beginning of the arrhythmia) electrical cardioversion leads to a longer recurrenc...
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Delay in the attachment and implantation of BLASTOCYST to the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The blastocyst remains unattached beyond the normal duration thus delaying embryonic development.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.
A syndrome characterized by multiple system abnormalities including DWARFISM; PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS; PREMATURE AGING; and HEARING LOSS. It is caused by mutations of a number of autosomal recessive genes encoding proteins that involve transcriptional-coupled DNA REPAIR processes. Cockayne syndrome is classified by the severity and age of onset. Type I (classical; CSA) is early childhood onset in the second year of life; type II (congenital; CSB) is early onset at birth with severe symptoms; type III (xeroderma pigmentosum; XP) is late childhood onset with mild symptoms.
