BACKGROUND: Head-up tilt (HUT) is widely used for diagnostic evaluation of patients with suspected vasovagal syncope (VVS), but also offers an opportunity to study VVS pathophysiology. In this regard, it is known that plasma epinephrine (Epi) levels and Epi / norepinephrine (NE) ratio (Epi/NE) are markedly increased from baseline at the time of HUT-induced VVS. However, whether these changes contribute to VVS susceptibility remains uncertain. OBJECTIVE: We hypothesized that if catecholamines contributed to VVS directly, then a greater increase of plasma Epi and Epi/NE ratio early during HUT would be associated with shorter time to syncope...

Despite the documented efficacy of catheter ablation in restoring and maintaining sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), antiarrhythmic drug therapy is very likely to remain a mainstay of AF management in the foreseeable future, complementary or alternative to interventional approaches.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. In 2010, an estimated 5.1 million people were affected by AF. Further, this number is expected to rise to over 12 million people by the year 2030 with the estimated growth of the elderly population. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

An 89-year-old woman with dilated cardiomyopathy underwent a second ablation procedure for persistent atrial tachycardia (AT) with repeated worsening of her heart failure due to the tachycardia. She had undergone pulmonary vein (PV) isolation using a cryoballoon and left atrial (LA) roof and mitral isthmus linear ablation for symptomatic drug-resistant persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) in her first procedure 3 months earlier.

AIMS: Obesity is associated with higher electrical cardioversion (ECV) failure in persistent atrial fibrillation (PeAF). For ease-of-use, many centers prefer patches over paddles. We assessed the optimum modality and shock vector, as well as the safety and efficacy of the Manual Pressure Augmentation (MPA) technique. METHODS: Patients with obesity (BMI ≥ 30) and PeAF undergoing ECV using a biphasic defibrillator were randomized into one of four arms by modality (adhesive patches or handheld paddles) and shock vector (anteroposterior [AP] or anteroapical [AA])...

INTRODUCTION: Radiofrequency (RF) and Cryo ablation are routinely used to treat arrhythmias, but the extent and time course of edema associated with the two different modalities is unknown. Our goal was to follow the lesion maturation and edema formation after RF and Cryo ablation using serial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Ventricular ablation was performed in a canine model (n=11) using a Cryo or an irrigated RF catheter. T2-weighted (T2w) edema imaging and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE)-MRI were done immediately (0 day: acute), 1 to 2 weeks (sub-acute), and 8 to 12 weeks (chronic) after ablation...

The accurate identification of disease-causing genetic variants remains one of the principal challenges facing the successful adoption of genetic testing for rare diseases like Brugada syndrome (BrS). This task is seemingly becoming ever more complex as our knowledge of human genetic variation increases. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

BACKGROUND: The adjunctive approach is still unknown for atrial fibrillation (AF) that cannot be terminated after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). We hypothesized that the driver ablation plus PVI was superior to PVI alone. METHODS AND RESULTS: 98 patients with paroxysmal AF were enrolled in this study and were divided into 2 groups, with one group undergoing PVI (n=49) and the other group undergoing PVI + driver ablation (n=49). The driver regions were defined as clusters of bipolar electrograms (EGM) that displayed spatial dispersion spread over mean AF cycle length (AFCL) at a minimum of three adjacent bipolars of a PentaRay catheter...

INTRODUCTION: Both isoproterenol (Iso) and adenosine (Ado) are used to induce atrial fibrillation (AF) in the electrophysiology lab. However, the utility of Ado has not been systematically established. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare Ado to Iso for the induction of paroxysmal AF. METHODS: Forty patients (16 women; mean age, 60 ± 12 years) with paroxysmal AF, presenting for ablation were prospectively included of whom 36 (90%) received Ado (18-36 mg) and/or Iso (3-20 µg/min incremental dose) in a randomized order (26 [72%] received both drugs)...

A 47-year-old man presents for a second opinion regarding recently diagnosed atrial fibrillation that was detected on his routine yearly physical examination with his primary care physician. He is asymptomatic and has a CHADS-VASc risk score of 0 for stroke. His last known electrocardiogram was one year ago and did not show atrial fibrillation. This article is protected by copyright.

BACKGROUND: Syncope triggered by swallowing is a well-known but uncommon condition that has been the focus of case reports but is otherwise largely unstudied. To better understand swallow syncope we examined heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) changes during swallowing in clinically suspected swallow syncope patients and asymptomatic control subjects. METHODS: The study population comprised 4 individuals with a history suggesting swallow syncope (3 men, 53±14...
