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 heart condition which can sometimes be successfully treated by a cardioversion. Cardioversion involves resetting the heart back to normal with the use of electric current. There is a tendency for the atrial fibrillation to recur , days weeks or even months after the cardioversion. ...
The laboratory test, C-Reactive Protein (CRP), has become well established as a marker of inflammation. Recently a high CRP level (indicating an increase in inflammation) was identified as a risk factor for atrial fibrillation. We are conducting this study with patients such as yourself with atrial fibrillation who are planning to undergo cardioversion to determine what sort of relationship exists between CRP levels and atrial fibrillation. We will then look at success rates ...
The Biorhythm study aims to investigate the utility of new biomarkers (e.g. MR proANP, ST2) measured pre-procedure for the prediction of procedural success in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing cardioversion or ablation.
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 recurrence-free interval than the delayed cardioversion (> 36 hrs but < 48 hrs after the beginning of the arrhythmia) within the first 3 months after cardioversion.
We aim to investigate the immediate success rate (rate of termination of atrial fibrillation) of dual shock cardioversion compared with standard single shock cardioversion in patients with baseline characteristics adversely influencing successful cardioversion. Baseline characteristics known to reduce the success rate of single shock cardioversion include: increased BMI, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sleep apnea, enlarged left atrium, longer duration of atrial fibrilla...
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 (electrical or pharmacological) cardioversion is chosen, while atrial fibrillation terminates spontaneously in 70% of the cases within 24 hours. A wait-and-see approach with rate-control medication only, and when needed cardioversion within 48 hours of onset of symptoms, could be effective, safe...
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...
The optimal strategy to restore sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) of less than 48 hours' duration is still controversial. The investigators performed a controlled single-center trial to compare electrical and pharmacological (propafenone) cardioversion to restore the sinus rhythm in selected patients with acute atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation and inflammation are strongly correlated. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether inflammation markers (alpha Defensin) predict maintenance of sinus rhythm following cardioversion. A secondary aim is to evaluate the role of Colchicine, an anti-inflammatory medication, in reducing the recurrence rate of atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia which requires electrical cardioversion in many patients in order to regain sinus rhythm. In a previous retrospective study a complication of acute renal failure was found in 17% of the patients after cardioversion.(The incidence and prognosis of renal dysfunction following cardioversion of atrial fibrillation. Helman Y,...Gilon D et al:Cardiology 2013;124(3);184-9.) Another complication previously described after cardioversion is pulm...
SPECIFIC AIM: To test the safety and feasibility of using low molecular weight heparin (LMWH, enoxaparin sodium; Lovenox, Sanofi-Aventis) in lieu of unfractionated heparin (UFH) as antithrombotic therapy for patients in atrial fibrillation undergoing transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) guided chemical or electrical cardioversion to sinus rhythm. HYPOTHESIS: Early cardioversion from atrial fibrillation can be safely performed using a short-term anticoagulation strategy of ...
This study will create a prospective registry of consecutive patients with Atrial Fibrillation (Afib) considered for cardioversion treatment to document up-to-date practice of in-hospital treatment, with a focus on the characterization of type of Afib, as well as on treatments applied (drugs, devices, interventions and their combinations), and associated complications within 60 days after enrollment.
This study seeks to determine the efficacy of single coil defibrillation leads for cardioversion of persistent atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder. For patients suffering atrial fibrillation direct current cardioversion is performed to reduce patients symptoms and prevent disease progression. The optimal energy selection for biphasic cardioversion is unknown. We aim to investigate the efficiency and safety of a high energy shock protocol (360 J) versus a standard escalating shock protocol (125-150-200 J) in cardioversion of atrial fibrillation.
This is a retrospective multi-center patient cohort study investigating patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) and elective cardioversion (ECV). The aim is to identify clinical predictors for ineffective ECV to improve management quality of persistent AF.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac arrhythmia that leads to increased risk of heart failure, hospitalization, thromboembolic events, and death. Restoration of normal heart rhythm is performed in many patients with AF to improve symptoms. In this study, the investigators will consider patients who fail 2 or more trials of DC cardioversion as having refractory AF. The aim of this study is to assess whether the use of double sequential defibrillation in patients w...
The main aim of the research is to investigate whether patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation with cryoablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) will have lower rates of AF recurrence than those treated by DC cardioversion without an ablation procedure. The objectives of the Pilot Study are to validate the key study logistics with a view to optimising methods to be used in the main study.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of abbreviated 3-day anticoagulation with dabigatran etexilate before cardioversion guided by trans-oesophageal echocardiography in comparison with conventional 3- week course of dabigatran etexilate before cardioversion
The aim of this randomized study is to evaluate the efficacy of two different approaches for conversion of persistent atrial fibrillation, the non-invasive one (external electrical cardioversion) and the invasive one (catheter ablation).
This study investigates diagnostic performance of a ring-type wearable device for detecting atrial fibrillation. This is a prospective cohort registry study began after the date of IRB approval and until 31th Dec. 2019. The eligible criteria are (1) those who admitted the institution for elective direct-current cardioversion of persistent atrial fibrillation, and (2) aged 19 years or more. The exclusion criteria are (1) those aged less than 19 years, (2) those who are not eligi...
Comparison of (i) catheter ablation, (ii) electrical cardioversion and (iii) pacemaker implantation with AV node ablation for patients over 65 years of age with persistent Atrial Fibrillation.
The main objectives in this study were to examine the cardiac structural and functional changes in patients with persistent and permanent AF, with the aim of improving our understanding of the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. In addition we aimed to identify variables predictive of recurrent AF.
In patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), electrical cardioversion is very effective in restoring sinus rhythm if modern, biphasic cardioverters are used. However, approximately 50 per cent of the successfully cardioverted patients experience a recurrence of AF within a few weeks. Therefore, valid predictors for AF recurrence would be of great clinical relevance, to avoid unnecessary procedures. In the PRE-ELECTRIC study, we will investigate the predictive value of...
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, with regard to new silent cerebral thrombo-embolic lesions and cognitive function, as well as electrical and functional/structural reverse remodelling, and its effects on inflammatory changes / specific cardiac biomarkers, vasoactive peptides, coagulation activity, and active fibrinolysis.
Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder, and the incidence is rapidly increasing. Cardioversion using an electrical shock (DC-cardioversion) is an important treatment to reduce symptoms and improve patient's quality-of-life. The treatment is performed by applying gel electrodes to the chest. Cardioversion is not always successful, and it is unknown which electrode-position provides the optimal efficacy. This study aims to compare two electrode positions, w...
