Meta-analysis identifies six new susceptibility loci for atrial fibrillation
TLDR
Six new atrial fibrillation susceptibility loci implicate candidate genes that encode transcription factors related to cardiopulmonary development, cardiac-expressed ion channels and cell signaling molecules that are associated with stroke, heart failure and death.
The long- and short-term impact of elevated body mass index on the risk of new atrial fibrillation the WHS (women's health study).
TLDR
In this population of apparently healthy women, BMI was associated with short- and long-term increases in AF risk, accounting for a large proportion of incident AF independent of traditional risk factors.
Influence of Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure on the Risk of Incident Atrial Fibrillation in Women
TLDR
In this large cohort of initially healthy women, BP was strongly associated with incident AF, and systolic BP was a better predictor than diastolic BP even after BP changes over time were taken into account.
Multicenter Outcomes for Catheter Ablation of Idiopathic Premature Ventricular Complexes.
TLDR
Catheter ablation of frequent PVCs is a low-risk and often effective treatment strategy to eliminate PVCs and associated symptoms and in patients with PVC-induced cardiomyopathy, cardiac function is frequently restored after successful ablation.
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.
Epicardial ventricular tachycardia ablation a multicenter safety study.
TLDR
VT ablation required epicardial ablation in 121 of 913 procedures (13%), with a risk of 5% and 2% of acute and delayed major complications related to epicardia access.
Ventricular Tachycardia in Cardiac Sarcoidosis: Characterization of Ventricular Substrate and Outcomes of Catheter Ablation
TLDR
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.
Global Psychological Distress and Risk of Atrial Fibrillation Among Women: The Women's Health Study
TLDR
In this prospective study of women without known cardiovascular disease, global psychological distress and specific depressive symptoms were unrelated to AF risk.
Catheter Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardia After Repair of Congenital Heart Disease: Electroanatomic Identification of the Critical Right Ventricular Isthmus
TLDR
Reentry circuit isthmuses in VT late after repair of congenital heart disease are located within anatomically defined isthMuses bordered by unexcitable tissue, which should facilitate catheter and surgical ablation of stable and unstable VTs.
Incidence and predictors of major complications from contemporary catheter ablation to treat cardiac arrhythmias.
TLDR
In a large cohort of contemporary catheter ablation procedures, major complication rates ranged between 0.8% and 6.0% depending on the ablation procedure performed, and renal insufficiency was the only independent predictor of a major complication.
