BACKGROUND Subclinical atrial high rate episodes (AHREs) detected by implanted devices in patients with no history of atrial fibrillation (AF) have been associated with an increased risk of stroke and systemic embolism. Data regarding the long-term survival of patients with permanent pacemakers and newly detected AHREs are limited. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to assess whether newly detected AHREs in pacemaker patients predict mortality outcomes. METHODS We evaluated 224 patients (mean age… CONTINUE READING
