BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation and flutter (AFF) are the most common arrhythmias presenting to emergency departments (EDs). We examined sex differences in outcomes for patients with AFF discharged from the ED in Alberta, Canada. METHODS: ED presentations for AFF during 1999-2011 that ended in discharge were extracted from administrative databases for all Alberta residents (age ≥ 35 years). Multivariable models determined the effect of sex on the time to ED return for AFF, the first follow-up visit with a physician, the first follow-up visit with a specialist (cardiologist or internal medicine physician), and death...

BACKGROUND: Major vascular complications have been associated with increased mortality and morbidity in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Our objective was to compare vascular and bleeding outcomes with the routine use of 2-dimensional ultrasonography (2D-US) guided femoral artery access in percutaneous transfemoral TAVR compared with traditional anatomic landmark palpation with angiographically-guided access. METHODS: This single-centre retrospective cohort study was conducted in Ontario, Canada...

Consensus regarding the management of massive pulmonary embolism (PE) and persistent shock after thrombolysis is lacking. A 30-year-old man collapsed with massive PE 3 days after an exploratory laparotomy for penetrating trauma, and he remained hypoxic and hypotensive despite thrombolytic therapy. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) was instituted as a bridge to surgical embolectomy, and placement of a right ventricular assist device (RVAD) was used to facilitate separation from cardiopulmonary bypass...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has evolved from a novel technology to an established therapy for high/intermediate-risk patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS). Although TAVR is used to treat bicuspid severe AS, the large randomized trials typically excluded bicuspid AS because of its unique anatomic features. This case report describes an acute aortic perforation during delivery of a transcatheter heart valve to treat a severe bicuspid AS with a "gothic aortic arch"; more careful evaluation of the preprocedural multislice computed tomographic scan would have unveiled a sharply angulated aortic arch...

Response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) varies greatly among patients. We present 2 patients with severe heart failure symptoms (New York Heart Association class IV) and extreme initial left ventricular (LV) dilatation (LV end-diastolic diameter of 92 mm and 80 mm, respectively) and severe functional mitral regurgitation who underwent CRT device implantation. Long-term follow-up showed late (≥ 4 years) normalization of LV ejection fraction (LVEF), LV dimensions, and functional status. In a subgroup of patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy and complete left bundle branch block, late continued LV reverse remodelling may lead to normalization of LV volumes and LVEF and significant improvement in functional class...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate respiratory muscle strength and endurance in the inpatient period in patients who recently experienced myocardial infarction (MI) and investigate the effects of a home-based walking program on respiratory strength and endurance in low-risk patients after MI. METHODS: Patients were randomized into a usual-care group (UCG) entailing regular care (n = 23) and an intervention group (IG) entailing an outpatient home-based walking program (n = 31)...

Despite the growing number of patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and event rates comparable with many cancers, there remain no pharmacologic agents definitively proven to improve patient outcomes. Although phase II trials have intermittently yielded encouraging results, none have translated into successful achievement of a phase III primary end point. Thus, because of the urgent need to discover proven therapies, it is prudent to reevaluate our current approach to HFpEF drug development...

REVIEW
Saman Rezazadeh, Henry J Duff
Bradyarrhythmia is a common clinical presentation. Although the majority of cases are acquired, genetic screening of families with bradyarrhythmia has led to the discovery of a growing number of causative hereditary mutations. These mutations can interfere with any of the steps required for the occurrence of each cardiac cycle, including generation of an action potential in the sinoatrial node, successful exit of the action potential from the node, propagation of the action potential throughout the atria until the depolarization waves reach the atrioventricular node, and finally transmission of the action potential to the ventricles through the His-Purkinje system...

BACKGROUND: Patients with atrial fibrillation who receive dialysis are at a high risk of ischemic stroke. The role of warfarin in mitigating this risk in patients with atrial fibrillation who receive dialysis is uncertain. Our objective was to examine the safety and efficacy of warfarin in patients who have atrial fibrillation and receive dialysis. METHODS: We used MedLine, Embase, and the Cochrane Library to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of published and unpublished observational and interventional studies related to the use of warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation who receive dialysis, and provided data on the risk of stroke and/or bleeding outcomes relative to placebo or no anticoagulation therapy...

BACKGROUND: Identification of patients at risk of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is valuable for targeted prevention strategies accompanying cardiac catheterization. METHODS: We searched MedLine and EMBASE for articles that developed or validated a clinical prediction model for CI-AKI or dialysis after angiography or percutaneous coronary intervention. Random effects meta-analysis was used to pool c-statistics of models. Heterogeneity was explored using stratified analyses and meta-regression...

Research is a core aspect of training in academic medicine, but fellows face many challenges thwarting their ability to perform clinically meaningful projects. The concept of a multicentre clinical trial collectively operated by fellows, and integrated longitudinally into training, has never been described. In this article, the authors expose the key principles of Collectively Operated Fellow-Initiated Research (COFIR) that they put in place. The aim of COFIR is to introduce a cohort of fellows to the career of clinician-scientists by conducting a longitudinal research project integrated into the curriculum of their clinical fellowship at a level they would not have access to as single individuals...

Low rates of cardiovascular preventive therapy with statin medications is a significant public health problem in Canada. There is a pressing need for public health interventions to increase the use of statin medications, especially among high-risk patients. In this article, we present the results of a quality assurance pilot program to provide laboratory-reported Framingham Risk Score (FRS) to physicians. This work was performed in a mixed urban and rural setting in southern Alberta. We provided FRSs and, for high-risk patients, statin treatment recommendations in conjunction with laboratory lipid panel requests...
