Question: Is 12-lead electrocardiography (ECG) the most accurate and convenient diagnostic method for atrial fibrillation (AF)? Findings: The Heart Spectrum Blood Pressure Monitor can be used at home, and is capable of determining the occurrence of AF. Three measurement methods were used in this study. The sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV of the methods used are between 90% and 100%, and the Heart Spectrum Blood Pressure Monitor can be effectively applied to AF detection....
This study assess the accuracy of a blood pressure monitor designed to detect atrial fibrillation. Subjects use the blood pressure monitor on a daily basis for 30 days and compare the readings to an ECG done at the same time.
Comparison of Effectiveness of Ranolazine Plus Metoprolol Combination vs. FlecainidE pluS Metoprolol Combination in ATrial Fibrillation Recurrences FOllowing PhaRmacological or Electrical CardioverSion of AtRial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice with a prevalence reaching 5% in patients older than 65 years and an incidence that increases progressively with age.1 According to the most recent guidelines, class Ic anti-arrhythmic drugs are considered the first line treatment in patients without significant structural heart disease. Flecainide is effective in preventing AF recurrences in 31-61% of cases according to different studies.2-5 A recent s...
This is a sigle-center, prospective study to evaluate the role of D-Dimer testing in patients with atrial fibrillation receiving Dabigatran or warfarin anticoagulation therapy.
The purpose of this study is to determine if preforming a posterior left pericardiotomy prevents atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery.
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 clinical setting.
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 factors involved in its pathogenetic condition, the frequency and prognostic significance of AF complicating ACS remain unclear
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 permanent atrial fibrillation, by using imaging approaches, i.e. combined trans-esophageal and transthoracic echocardiography. The conducted LA-EU-01 study was a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center, open-label, non-comparative, interventional clinical investigation with the participation of...
This is a cross-sectional cohort study which aims to compare the invasive and non-invasive assessments on aortic blood pressure and cardiac funtion in subjects without history of cardio-vascular disease. Left ventricular (LV) filling pressure, LV volume, and aortic blood pressure will be measured invasively. Non-invasive assessment includes echocardiography,aortic, and carotid blood pressure measurement.
We will assess the impact of treatments for atrial fibrillation on an individual patient's thrombotic status
The investigator's objective is to validate the novel automated blood pressure device against the requirements set forth in the AAMI_ISO 81060-2:2010 standard in voluntarily consented study participants.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia and it is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Electrical isolation of the pulmonary vein (PVI) by radiofrequency energy or cryoablation has been shown to be an effective treatment of AF by reducing morbidity, improving quality of life and functional capacity. Renal artery sympathetic denervation (RND) by catheter ablation has been shown in a preliminary study to improve outcome of PVI in patients with paro...
People: The absolute prevalence of undiagnosed atrial fibrillation in individuals over 60 years of age is 2.2%, equivalent to 20.1% of the overall prevalence of AF and there is not sufficient evidence regarding the procedures that may be most effective for achieving an early diagnosis of AF and reducing the associated stroke risks. Intervention: Characterize the ideal population for searching unknown atrial fibrillation and develop an understanding of actions that could be tak...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is reaching epidemic proportions in the aging U.S. and European populations, but the mechanisms of increased susceptibility to atrial fibrillation are still unknown. In this study, we look to further examine genetic and medical co-morbidity influence of atrial fibrillation duration and response to medications. In Specific Aim 1, we propose the creation of a Veterans Affairs AF Biorepository (VAAFBio), which is a resource that will collect and store clin...
This is a prospective randomized study with two arms: the Conventional and Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring arm and the Home blood pressure monitoring arm. The study will include both previously treated and untreated individuals. Before randomization and in the end of the study, measurements will be performed using all three blood pressure monitoring methods (Conventional, Ambulatory and Home) as well as assessment of target organ damage (microalbuminuria, electrocardiogra...
Patients who undergo ablation for AF typically have 2 sheaths placed in each groin, including a large sheath when the Cryo Balloon is used for pulmonary vein isolation. During the procedure, heparin is administered to maintain a target ACT > 300 seconds. At the conclusion of the procedure, the venous sheaths are removed and hemostasis is obtained. There are at least 2 ways of obtaining hemostasis after venous access. In the manual hemostasis approach, an ACT is checked and prot...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice. This arrhythmia is responsible for 15% of strokes and more than 30% of strokes on people over 65 years. According to studies, 30 to 40% of isolated atrial fibrillations could be familial. Atrial fibrillation has significant genetic heterogeneity. About 40 genes have been identified as potentially involved. Studies have identified genes common to the risk of atrial fibrillation ...
Arterial thromboembolism constitutes a major risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) requiring antithrombotic therapy. Platelets and microparticles (MPs) are important for hemostasis and thrombosis, their role during AF is not well known. The principal objective of this study is to compare morphologic, functional and proteomics characteristics of blood platelet between AF patients and healthy volunteers.
We are developing Blood Pressure Imager (BPI), which is a new technology that does not require cuffs or expensive equipment, and can be used by untrained individuals in underserved, low-resource environments at their own homes or regional care settings. Over the last one-year we have developed the BPI prototype, which is ready for testing. BPI is a wrist device that includes a camera, LED lights and soft membrane with a reflective coating. In this device feasibility study, the ...
The aim of this research project is to find out whether a personalized definition of the lower blood pressure threshold based on the individual blood pressure profile by means of preoperative 24-hour blood pressure measurement can reduce organ damage (brain, kidney, heart) through reduced blood flow during surgery.
To describe the treatment perception from patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) receiving Pradaxa® or VKA for stroke prevention by using the self-estimation questionnaire of PACT-Q during a 6-month study period.
Individuals who experience a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) are at heightened risk of subsequent vascular events, including heart attack's and secondary stroke/TIA. Blood pressure control is considered the most important contributor to positive health outcomes in stroke patients. The measurement of central blood pressure (cSBP) (the blood pressure which is being exerted at the heart), may provide clinicians with important diagnostic and prognostic information over a...
The proposed research will investigate whether the irregular effects of atrial fibrillation on the body's circulation directly impacts the regulation of cerebral blood flow. To further delineate this finding, investigation of these potential effects will include differences in postural positioning. This data will be used to further understand the overall hemodynamic effects of atrial fibrillation on extra-cardiac organs of the body.
The purpose of this study is to establish a genebank repository of blood samples and data to generate information about the hereditary (genetic) basis of atrial fibrillation.
