Early recurrences of atrial fibrillation after electrical cardioversion: a result of fibrillation-induced electrical remodeling of the atria?
OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate whether, in humans, the timing and incidence of a relapse of atrial fibrillation (AF) during the first month after cardioversion indicates the presence ofExpand

A single Na(+) channel mutation causing both long-QT and Brugada syndromes.
Mutations in SCN5A, the gene encoding the cardiac Na(+) channel, have been identified in 2 distinct diseases associated with sudden death: one form of the long-QT syndrome (LQT(3)) and the BrugadaExpand

Lenient versus strict rate control in patients with atrial fibrillation.
BACKGROUND Rate control is often the therapy of choice for atrial fibrillation. Guidelines recommend strict rate control, but this is not based on clinical evidence. We hypothesized that lenient rateExpand

Symptom dimensions of depression following myocardial infarction and their relationship with somatic health status and cardiovascular prognosis.
OBJECTIVE The reporting of depressive symptoms following myocardial infarction may be confounded by complaints originating from the myocardial infarction. Therefore, it is difficult to estimate theExpand

Risk factors for malignant ventricular arrhythmias in lamin a/c mutation carriers a European cohort study.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine risk factors that predict malignant ventricular arrhythmias (MVA) in Lamin A/C (LMNA) mutation carriers. BACKGROUND LMNA mutations cause aExpand

Peripartum Cardiomyopathy as a Part of Familial Dilated Cardiomyopathy
Background— Anecdotal cases of familial clustering of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) and familial occurrences of PPCM and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) together have been observed,Expand
