Patients with cardiac sarcoidosis and VT exhibit ventricular substrate characterized by confluent right ventricular scarring and patchy left ventricularScarring capable of sustaining a large number of re-entrant circuits, but recurrences are common.
Long-Term Arrhythmic and Nonarrhythmic Outcomes of Lamin A/C Mutation Carriers.
Effects of chronic omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation on human pulmonary vein and left atrial electrophysiology in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.
Prognostic Value of Brain Natriuretic Peptide in Noncardiac Surgery: A Meta-analysis
Elevated BNP and NT-proBNP levels identify patients undergoing major noncardiac surgery at high risk of cardiac mortality, all-cause mortality, and MACE.
Long-term omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation reduces the recurrence of persistent atrial fibrillation after electrical cardioversion.
Epicardial wave mapping in human long-lasting persistent atrial fibrillation: transient rotational circuits, complex wavefronts, and disorganized activity.
Human long-lasting PerAF is characterized by heterogeneous and unstable patterns of activation including wavefronts, transient rotational circuits, and disorganized activity.
Regional Variation in RBM20 Causes a Highly Penetrant Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy
These findings underline the importance of arrhythmia surveillance and family screening in this disease and represent the first step in defining the genetic architecture of RBM20 disease causality on a population level.

The acute and long‐term results of SP ablation in a large single‐center consecutive series are reported and predictors of acute success and late recurrence are analyzed.
Sinus Node and Atrial Arrhythmias.
Although catheter ablation will benefit patients with predominantly AF and secondary SND, cardiac pacing may be the mainstay of therapy for patients with predominant fibrotic atrial cardiomyopathy.
A minimal or maximal ablation strategy to achieve pulmonary vein isolation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation: a prospective multi-centre randomized controlled trial (the Minimax study).
There was no statistically significant difference in freedom from AF between a minimal and maximal ablation strategy, despite attempts to achieve PVI with antral ablation, IVR ablation is commonly required.
