The aim of the present study was to evaluate the smoking relapse rate among smokers who had become abstinent during admission for acute coronary syndromes. The association between smoking relapse and mortality was also analyzed. A cohort of 1,294 consecutive active smokers who had interrupted smoking after admission for acute coronary syndromes (1,018 men(More)
BACKGROUND An early invasive strategy (EIS) has been shown to yield a better clinical outcome than an early conservative strategy (ECS) in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTEACSs), particularly in those at higher risk according to the GRACE risk score. However, findings of the clinical trials have not been confirmed in registries.(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to assess if knowing the interatrial conduction time is useful to better program atrioventricular delay in sequential pacing. The study proposes a new echo-Doppler method to measure interatrial conduction time, correlating it with electrophysiological measures. METHODS The new method was tested in 30 subjects who underwent(More)
INTRODUCTION Switching from any statin to another non-equipotent lipid lowering treatment (LLT) may cause a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol increase and has been associated with a higher probability of negative cardiovascular outcomes. The aim of the study was to assess the impact of switching from rosuvastatin to any other LLT on clinical outcomes in(More)
Anticoagulation, reducing the risk of thromboembolic events in patients undergoing cardioversion, is a cornerstone of peri-cardioversion management in patients with atrial fibrillation. We aimed to analyse published data on the efficacy and safety of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patients undergoing cardioversion. We performed a systematic review of(More)
Atrioventricular dissociation and atrioventricular block are the most common types of atrioventricular asynchrony. Less frequently, atrioventricular asynchrony may occur in the pacemaker syndrome or during sequential pacing with programmed asynchronous atrioventricular delay. A rare type of atrioventricular asynchrony that has relevant hemodynamic effects(More)
