Prognostic importance of defibrillator shocks in patients with heart failure.
TLDR
Among patients with heart failure in whom an ICD is implanted for primary prevention, those who receive shocks for any arrhythmia have a substantially higher risk of death than similar patients who do not receive such shocks. Expand
Linear ablation lesions for control of unmappable ventricular tachycardia in patients with ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
Radiofrequency linear endocardial lesions extending from the dense scar to the normal myocardium or anatomic boundary seem effective in controlling unmappable VT. Expand
Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure: Treatment Considerations for a Dual Epidemic
TLDR
Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure have emerged as new cardiovascular epidemics over the last decade, including the aging of the population, the rising prevalence of chronic heart disease, and more frequent diagnosis as a result of increased monitoring. Expand
Evidence of atrial functional mitral regurgitation due to atrial fibrillation: reversal with arrhythmia control.
TLDR
AF can result in "atrial functional MR" that improves if sinus rhythm is restored, and this MR improves with restoration of Sinus rhythm. Expand
2017 AHA/ACC/HRS Guideline for Management of Patients With Ventricular Arrhythmias and the Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death: Executive Summary: A Report of the American College of
TLDR
The next chair and vice-chair will be announced at a special meeting of the American Academy of Anti-Accident and Accident Medicine (AACC) board of directors in New York later this month. Expand
Randomized Ablation Strategies for the Treatment of Persistent Atrial Fibrillation: RASTA Study
TLDR
The data suggest that additional substrate modification beyond PVI does not improve single-procedure efficacy in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation. Expand
2019 HRS/EHRA/APHRS/LAHRS expert consensus statement on catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias
TLDR
This document is to help electrophysiologists around the world to appropriately select patients for catheter ablation, to perform procedures in a safe and efficacious manner, and to provide follow‐up and adjunctive care in order to obtain the best possible outcomes for patients with ventricular arrhythmias. Expand
Electroanatomic substrate and ablation outcome for suspected epicardial ventricular tachycardia in left ventricular nonischemic cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
In patients with NICM and VT of epicardial origin, the substrate is characterized by areas of basal LV epicardials > endocardial bipolar low voltage and electrograms in these areas are not only small but wide but also split, split, and/or late, and help identify the substrate targeted for successful ablation. Expand
Meta-analysis of gender differences in residual stroke risk and major bleeding in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation treated with oral anticoagulants.
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating gender differences in residual risk of CVA/SE and major bleeding outcomes in patients with nonvalvular AF treated with either warfarin or NOAC suggests an increased net clinical benefit of NOAC agents compared with warfar in treating women with AF. Expand
Site-specific twelve-lead ECG features to identify an epicardial origin for left ventricular tachycardia in the absence of myocardial infarction.
TLDR
ECG features distinguishing epicardial LV-VT are site specific, including the presence or absence of a Q wave in leads that reflect local ventricular activation, according to region specific ECG criteria. Expand
