  • What Device-Detected Atrial Fibrillation Burden Reveals About Stroke Risk

    In a retrospective analysis of electronic health record data matched with remote pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator recordings of atrial fibrillation episodes, a threshold daily arrhythmia burden portending higher stroke risk was determined over a range of CHA2DS2-VASc scores.

  • Smartwatches for the Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation

  • A Review of Atrial Fibrillation and Current Therapeutic Strategies: Part 1

    This two-part series presents a review of the current evidence on atrial fibrillation. The first part includes its definition, classification, risk factors, comorbidities, evaluation, and acute management of newly diagnosed patients. The second part will focus on long-term management, including risk factor modification, rate and rhythm control measures, stroke risk stratification, and anticoagulation management.

  • Chocolate for Primary Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation

    In a large, population-based, prospective cohort study of Danish people aged 50-64 years, researchers found that chocolate intake was inversely related to incidental rates of atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.

  • Is Anticoagulant Bridging Needed in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation Going to Surgery?

    In patients with atrial fibrillation who had warfarin treatment interrupted for an elective operation or other elective invasive procedure, forgoing bridging anticoagulation was not inferior to perioperative bridging with low molecular weight heparin for the prevention of arterial thromboembolism and decreased the risk of major bleeding.

  • Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation Management — You Can’t Go Wrong

    Rate control and rhythm control strategies for cardiac surgery patients with postoperative atrial fibrillation lead to similar hospital durations, similar complication rates, and similar very low rates of atrial fibrillation at 60-day follow-up.

  • Left Atrial Dysfunction Without Fibrillation Increases Stroke Risk

    Lleft atrial abnormalities that do not necessarily result in atrial fibrillation, may also increase the risk of stroke and should be investigated and searched for in patients with ischemic stroke consistent with cardiogenic embolism.
