Electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the intermediate frequency (IF) range are generated by many novel electrical appliances, including electric vehicles, radiofrequency identification systems, induction hobs, or energy supply systems, such as wireless charging systems. The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate whether cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI) in the IF range (1 kHz-1 MHz). Additionally, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of studies used to investigate EMI...

Aims: This study was designed to assess the prognostic value of clinical and electrocardiographic parameters in Brugada syndrome (BrS). Methods and results: The study population included 272 consecutive patients (82% males; mean age 43 ± 12 years), with either a spontaneous (n = 137, 50%) or drug-induced (n = 135, 50%) Type 1 Brugada electrocardiogram (ECG) pattern. The study combined endpoint included sudden cardiac death (SCD), cardiac arrest, and appropriate intervention of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD)...

Aims: As in vivo real-life data are still scarce, we conducted a study to assess the safety and feasibility of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with a leadless pacemaker system. Methods and results: In this prospective non-randomized interventional trial, we enrolled 15 patients with an MRI conditional Micra® leadless pacemaker system to undergo either a 1.5 T or 3.0 T cardiac MRI scan. Clinical adverse events as well as device parameters such as pacing threshold, sensing, impedance, and battery life were assessed at baseline as well as 1 and 3 months after the scan...

Aims: Substantial interest has been directed towards stroke risk stratification in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) but prior studies have focused on AF without significant valvular heart disease (VHD), so-called 'non-valvular AF'. A formal validation exercise addressing stroke risks in relation to the CHA2DS2-VASc risk factor(s) in AF patients with VHD is lacking. Also, the use of the HAS-BLED score in anticoagulated patients with VHD has not been previously studied. The aim of this study was to investigate stroke and bleeding rates in AF patients with VHD in relation to the CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED scores...

Aims: Sedation is not consistently used during electrophysiology procedures because of concerns regarding effects on tachycardia inducibility. We designed this study to assess the effect of conscious sedation on tachycardia inducibility and patient comfort during supraventricular tachycardia ablation. Methods and results: Patients with narrow QRS tachycardia and no pre-excitation undergoing an electrophysiology study were randomly assigned to sedation or placebo group...

Aims: Catheter ablation is an established therapy in patients with symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF) with increasing popularity. Pericardial effusion requiring intervention (PE) is one of the most threatening adverse outcomes. The aim of this study was to examine rates of PE after catheter ablation in a large 'real-world' data set in a German-wide hospital network. Methods and results: Using ICD and OPS codes, administrative data of 85 Helios hospitals from 2010 to 2017 was used to identify AF catheter ablation cases [Helios atrial fibrillation ablation registry (SAFER)]...

Aims: This prospective, randomized, single-centre study aimed to directly compare the safety and efficacy of uninterrupted and interrupted periprocedural anticoagulation protocols with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patients undergoing catheter ablation of non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). Methods and results: We randomly assigned 846 NVAF patients receiving DOACs prior to ablation to uninterruption (n = 422) or interruption (n = 424) of the DOACs on the day of the procedure...

Aims: To assess the incremental benefit of uninterrupted direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) vs. uninterrupted vitamin K antagonists (VKA) for catheter ablation (CA) of non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) on three primary outcomes: major bleeding, thrombo-embolic events, and minor bleeding. A secondary outcome was post-procedural silent cerebral infarction (SCI) as detected by brain magnetic resonance imaging. Methods and results: A systematic review of Medline, Cochrane, and Embase was done to find all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in which uninterrupted DOACs were compared against uninterrupted VKA for CA of NVAF...

Aims: Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) is the gold standard for identification of left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombi. However, TOE is semi-invasive and cannot be performed in certain patients. Left atrial appendage thrombi can also be identified by cardiac computed tomography (CCT) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR); however, the diagnostic performance of these techniques vs. TOE is unclear. Methods and results: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of 22 CCT and 4 CMR studies comparing diagnostic performance to TOE for identification of LAA thrombi...

Aims: Remote monitoring (RM) is considered as a standard of care for pacemaker recipients. Remote monitoring systems provide calendar-based intracardiac electrogram recordings (IEGM) only with the current pacemaker settings (passive IEGM). PREMS (Pacemaker Remote Electrogram Monitoring Study), an observational, multicentre trial, prospectively evaluated the clinical value of an active IEGM (aIEGM), including three 10-s sections (passive IEGM, encouraged sensing, and encouraged pacing), compared to other RM data and to its passive IEGM section...

Aims: The EdoxabaN vs. warfarin in subjectS UndeRgoing cardiovErsion of atrial fibrillation (ENSURE-AF) (NCT02072434) study was a multicentre prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded-endpoint evaluation (PROBE) trial comparing edoxaban with enoxaparin/warfarin followed by warfarin alone in 2199 non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients undergoing electrical cardioversion and showed comparable rates of bleeding and thromboembolism between treatments. This prespecified ancillary analysis investigated the impact of edoxaban therapy on treatment satisfaction and utilization of healthcare services...

Aims: Characterization of the cardiac phenotype associated with the novel LMNA nonsense mutation c.544C>T, p.Q182*, which we have identified in a large five-generation family. Methods and results: A family tree was constructed. Clinical data [arrhythmia, syncope, sudden cardiac death (SCD), New York Heart Association (NYHA) class] were collected from living and deceased family members. DNA of 23 living family members was analysed for mutations in LMNA. Additionally, dilated cardiomyopathy multi-gene-panel testing and whole exome sequencing were performed in some family members to identify potential phenotype-modifiers...

Aims: Prospective data regarding the role of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) for the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death in patients with long QT syndrome (LQTS) is scarce. Herein, we explore the prospective Rochester LQTS ICD registry to assess the risk for appropriate shock in primary prevention in a real-world setting. Methods and results: We studied 212 LQTS patients that had ICD implantation for primary prevention. Best-subsets proportional-hazards regression analysis was used to identify clinical variables that were associated with the first appropriate shock...

Aims: Use of the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) to prevent sudden cardiac death is increasing. Few data exist on S-ICD in young patients. We reviewed our single-centre experience in order to assess the effectiveness and safety of S-ICD implantation, and to identify potential factors associated with complications. Methods and results: Observational, non-randomized, standard-of-care study on S-ICD implantation/follow-up in young patients with inherited arrhythmias (IA), cardiomyopathies, and congenital heart defects (CHD)...
