AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanisms of induction of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) by analysis of its onset recorded on Holter monitoring (HM). METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and seven HM were evaluated in 90 patients (mean age 67.7, cardiac disease in 31.1%), with one or more self-terminating episodes of PAF, lasting >or=30(More)

AIMS The aims of the study are to develop a cost-minimization analysis from the hospital perspective and a cost-effectiveness analysis from the third payer standpoint, based on direct estimates of costs and QOL associated with remote follow-ups, using Merlin@home and, compared with standard ambulatory follow-ups, in the management of ICD and(More)
