Management of Antithrombotic TherApy in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation or DevelOping AtRial Fibrillation During Hospitalization for PCI

ACS are a potent risk factor for AF, with new onset AF occurring in up to 1 in every 5 patients hospitalized with an ACS. Despite its relatively frequent occurrence and the many etiologic...

Systematic Screening With Electrocardiogram for Unknown Atrial Fibrillation in 65 Years Old and Above People in Nursing Home

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia. Some studies shown that systematic screening with electrocardiogram could improve atrial fibrillation detection. No studies are available...

Transient Electrocardiogram Assessment in Stroke Evaluation

In stroke survivors, atrial fibrillation is typically detected with short-term electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring in the stroke unit. Prolonged continuous ECG monitoring is impractical and...

Effectiveness of a Non-governmental Organization-led Large-scale Community Atrial Fibrillation Screening Program Using Smartphone Electrocardiogram: An Observational Cohort Study.

Opportunistic screening for atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients over 65 years of age is currently recommended.

Apixaban in patients at risk of stroke undergoing atrial fibrillation ablation.

It is recommended to perform atrial fibrillation ablation with continuous anticoagulation. Continuous apixaban has not been tested.

Electrocardiographic Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Predicts Recurrence of Atrial Arrhythmias after Catheter Ablation of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation.

Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent predictor of new-onset atrial fibrillation. Whether LVH can predict the recurrence of arrhythmia after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in p...

Continuous Monitoring Following Second Generation Cryoballoon Ablation for Paroxysmal Atrial fibrillation: In Patients with Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices.

The second generation cryoballoon (CB) is effective in achieving pulmonary vein isolation. Continuous monitoring would eradicate any over or under estimated freedom of atrial fibrillation (AF) post ab...

Left atrial thrombus despite continuous direct oral anticoagulant or warfarin therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation: insights into rates and timing of thrombus resolution.

Left atrial thrombus (LAT) may be detected by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) or flutter (AFL) despite continuous anticoagulation therapy. We sought to...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

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.

Disturbance in the atrial activation that is caused by transient failure of impulse conduction from the SINOATRIAL NODE to the HEART ATRIA. It is characterized by a delayed in heartbeat and pauses between P waves in an ELECTROCARDIOGRAM.
