Successful ablation of atrial fibrillation does not normalise left ventricular function, reverse impaired myocardial energetics or increase perfusion reserve: novel mechanistic insights with clinical implications
BACKGROUND Lone atrial fibrillation (AF) may reflect a subclinical cardiomyopathy that persists after sinus rhythm (SR) restoration, providing a substrate for AF recurrence. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the effect of restoring SR by catheter ablation on left ventricular (LV) function and energetics in patients with AF but no significant(More)
The cornerstone of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation is pulmonary vein isolation (PVI), which can be achieved in more than 95% of patients at the end of the procedure. However, AF recurrence rates remain high and are related to recovery of PV conduction. Adenosine testing is used to unmask dormant pulmonary vein conduction (DC). The aim of this study is to(More)
AIMS Primary prevention (PP) implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implant rates in the UK are below national targets and barriers to this are not well known. This study was designed to identify the stages along the referral pathway from general to specialist care that eligible patients reach and what proportion eventually receive an ICD. METHODS(More)
Background. Altered vascular responses during exercise and disturbed responses to autonomic function testing have been documented in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and are associated with markers of an adverse prognosis. Reduced heart rate variability (HRV) and baroreflex sensitivity are predictors of increased risk of sudden death after myocardial(More)
