"The improvement of cardiovascular outcomes with ablation in patients with heart failure and AFib
is consistent across multiple trials, at least with respect to heart failure with reduced ejection fraction" concluded Dr.
This new report of benefit from AFib
catheter ablation in patients with heart failure "advances the evidence," said Clyde W Yancy, MD, professor of medicine and chief of cardiology at Northwestern University in Chicago.
In subgroup analyses, the adjusted HR for AFib
with ustekinumab versus TNF inhibitor was 1.46 (95% CI, 0.98-2.18) for patients aged 60 years and older and 1.47 (95% CI, 0.932.31) in patients with diabetes.
This study suggests that AFib
is associated with a specific type of cognitive decline that is distinct from Alzheimer's disease.
"Too many people living with AFib
are unaware of their risk, and earlier detection, diagnosis and treatment of AFib
could significantly improve outcomes.
"Utilizing wristwatch-based optical heart sensor and ECG monitoring is a logical evolution of this research and may also lead to increased AFib
diagnosis and improved clinical outcomes for patients," said Paul Burton, M.D., Ph.D., FACC, vice president, medical affairs, internal medicine, Janssen Scientific Affairs LLC.
Due to the development of a large, diverse registry of patients, researchers at the University of Illinois who have been studying AFib
in minority populations think they have unlocked one small part of the mystery.
Although DOACs are not approved for AFib
caused by valve damage, they are used with increasing frequency in patients with rheumatic heart disease or mitral stenosis, as well.
Cardiologs aids physicians in screening for atrial fibrillation (AFib
) and other arrhythmias using long-term ambulatory ECG monitoring recordings.
It's estimated that nearly 3 million Americans have AFib
(atrial fibrillation) and many may not even be aware that they have this condition.
Sommer was experiencing symptoms of atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib
, which is an electrical disruption in the pumping rhythm of the heart's upper chambers.
If you have atrial fibrillation (AFib
) and are overweight or obese, you may have fewer, less severe symptoms if you lose weight, says a study published in the Nov.
