Intrapericardial Ranolazine Prolongs Atrial Refractory Period and Markedly Reduces Atrial Fibrillation Inducibility in the Intact Porcine Heart
(LIPPINCOTT WILLIAMS & WILKINS, 2010)
Introduction: Extensive experimental studies and clinical evidence (Metabolic Efficiency with Ranzolazine for Less Ischemia in Non-ST-Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction-36 [MERLIN ...
Effect of β-blockers on the risk of atrial fibrillation in patients with acute myocardial infarction
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2010)
INTRODUCTION: Oral β-blockers improve the prognosis of patients with acute myocardial infarction, while atrial fibrillation worsens the prognosis of this population. The reduction of atrial fibrillation incidence in ...
Impaired cardiac autophagy in patients developing postoperative atrial fibrillation
(Mosby Inc., 2012)
Objectives: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a common complication after on-pump heart surgery. Several histologic abnormalities, such as interstitial fibrosis and vacuolization, have been described in atrial ...
Treatment of atrial fibrillation with radiofrequency ablation and simultaneous multipolar mapping of the pulmonary veins
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia - SBC, 2001-11-01)
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the feasibility and safety of simultaneous catheterization and mapping of the 4 pulmonary veins for ablation of atrial fibrillation. METHODS: Ten patients, 8 with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation ...
Ranolazine Exerts Potent Effects on Atrial Electrical Properties and Abbreviates Atrial Fibrillation Duration in the Intact Porcine Heart
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2009)
Introduction: In vitro studies and ambulatory ECG recordings from the MERLIN TIMI-36 clinical trial suggest that the novel antianginal agent ranolazine may have the potential to suppress atrial arrhythmias. However, there ...
Gastric hypomotility following epicardial vagal denervation ablation to treat atrial fibrillation
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2008)
Gastric Palsy Following AF Vagal Ablation. We report a case of a 55-year-old man with vagal paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) who was submitted to selective epicardial and endocardial atrial vagal denervation with the ...
Oclusão percutânea do apêndice atrial esquerdo: colocando o apêndice mais letal do corpo humano atrás das grades
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia - SBC, 2012-11-01)
Stroke in a Young Man Secondary to Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation and Thyrotoxicosis: A Case Report
We report a case of a male patient with stroke caused by atrial fibrillation (AF) due to thyrotoxicosis. At hospital admission, he presented hypertension and AF. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a right-side ischemic ...
Atrial Function Assessed by Speckle Tracking Echocardiography Is a Good Predictor of Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation in Elderly Patients
(Wiley & Sons, 2016)
ObjectiveAdvanced age is an independent predictor of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. We evaluated whether left atrial (LA) dysfunction assessed by strain ...
Management of posterior atrial wall perforation during transseptal approach for left atrium ablation
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2009)
