Rate Control in Atrial Fibrillation II

Atrial fibrillation is a common cardiac disease, with increasing incidence and prevalence. There are two main treatment strategies for this arrhythmia, rhythm control and rate control. As rate control is easier to achieve and no major difference in outcome has been found between these two strategies, it is considered a …

Optimal Anticoagulation for Higher Risk Patients Post-Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation Trial

This is a prospective, open-label, randomized trial to investigate whether a strategy of ongoing, long-term oral anticoagulation with rivaroxaban 15 mg daily is superior to a strategy of antiplatelet therapy, ASA 75-160 mg, alone in preventing cerebral embolic events in moderately high risk patients following successful catheter ablation for atrial …

Resolution of Thrombi in Left Atrial Appendage With Edoxaban

Non-valvular (NV) atrial fibrillation (AF) increases the risk of stroke by approximately fivefold. The atrial thrombi associated with AF are seen within the left atrial appendage (LAA) in most cases (> 90%). Anticoagulation with a vitamin-K antagonist (VKA) is recommended to prevent thromboembolic complications and to resolve thrombi. Non-VKA oral …

Liraglutide Effect in Atrial Fibrillation

The goal (or purpose) of this study is to evaluate (study) a new way to stabilize (steady) the activity between the fat deposits surrounding the heart and the left atrium. To reduce the amount of EAT, this study will use a medication called Liraglutide. This medication is known to work …

Edoxaban Versus Edoxaban With antiPlatelet Agent In Patients With Atrial Fibrillation and Chronic Stable Coronary Artery Disease

This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of Edoxaban with the combination of edoxaban and antiplatelet in patients with stable CAD (coronary artery stenosis 50% on medical treatment or revascularized stable CAD [ 12 months for acute coronary syndrome and 6 months after stable CAD]) and high-risk atrial fibrillation (CHA2DS2-VASc …

Predictive Factors to Effectively Terminate Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation by Blocking Atrial Selective Ionic Currents

Background: Different research strategies aim at understanding the mechanisms underlying the maintenance of atrial fibrillation (AF), while preventing ventricular pro-arrhythmia related to the use of anti-arrhythmic drugs to restore sinus rhythm. Such aims might be achieved by drugs that effectively terminate reentrant sources identified during AF, along with an atrial …

Left Atrial Posterior Wall Additional Isolation for Persistent Atrial Fibrillation Trial

PVI is cornerstone of AF ablation. However, clinical outcome of only PVI in patients with persistent AF is insufficient due to AF substrate extending to left atrium. Strategy of catheter ablation for persistent AF is not established despite attempts of numerous left atrial substrate modifications. Additional PWI on PVI is …

Atropine or Ephedrine Pretreatment for Preventing Bradycardia in Elderly Patients

Spinal anesthesia is widely used for lower extremity surgery, and sedation is often required during surgery. For sedation, propofol, midazolam and dexmedetomidine are frequently used. Dexmedetomidine is a highly selective alpha 2 receptor agonist, and has sedating and analgesic effect. Compared with propofol and midazolam, it has little or no …

Reducing the Risk of Drug-Induced QT Interval Lengthening in Women

Torsades de pointes (TdP) is a catastrophic arrhythmia associated with corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation, which can be induced by > 150 commonly prescribed drugs. TdP risk is higher in women and is modulated by the ratio of serum progesterone and estradiol; the higher the serum progesterone and progesterone:estradiol ratio, …

Comparison of Bolus Dosing of Methohexital and Propofol in Elective Direct Current Cardioversion

The investigators theorize that the use of methohexital during cardioversion will result in a shorter time to effective sedation and time to full recovery when compared to the use of propofol. This will change how sedation is approached for elective cardioversions. Primary Hypothesis: The mean time to recovery from sedation …
