The difference between men and women is clear even just by looking at an electrocardiogram: females present higher resting heart rate, a shorter QRS complex length and greater corrected QT interval. The development of these differences from pubertal age onward suggests that sexual hormones play a key role, although their effect is far from being completely understood. Different incidences between sexes have been reported for many arrhythmias, both ventricular and supraventricular, and also for sudden cardiac death...

Aims: Galectin-3 (Gal-3) is an important mediator of cardiac fibrosis, particularly in heart failure. Increased Gal-3 concentration (Gal-3), associated with increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AF), may reflect atrial fibrotic remodelling underlying AF progression. We aimed to investigate whether the change in serum Gal-3 reflects alterations of the arrhythmogenic atrial substrate following thoracoscopic AF surgery, and predicts absence of AF. Methods and results: Consecutive patients undergoing thoracoscopic AF surgery were included...

Pharmacologic challenge with sodium channel blockers is part of the diagnostic workout in patients with suspected Brugada syndrome. The test is overall considered safe but both ajmaline and flecainide detain well known pro-arrhythmic properties. Moreover, the treatment of patients with life-threatening arrhythmias during these diagnostic procedures is not well defined. Current consensus guidelines suggest to adopt cautious protocols interrupting the sodium channel blockers as soon as any ECG alteration appears...

Use of cardiac implantable devices and catheter ablation is steadily increasing in Western countries following the positive results of clinical trials. Despite the advances in scientific knowledge, tools development, and techniques improvement we still have some grey area in the field of electrical therapies for the heart. In particular, several reports highlighted differences both in medical behaviour and procedural outcomes between female and male candidates. Women are referred later for catheter ablation of supraventricular arrhythmias, especially atrial fibrillation, leading to suboptimal results...

Aims: His bundle pacing has shown to prevent detrimental effects from right ventricular apical pacing (RVA) and proved to resynchronize many conduction disturbances cases. However, the extent of His bundle pacing resynchronization is limited. An optimized stimulation waveform could expand this limit when implemented in His bundle pacing sets. In this work, we temporarily implemented RVA and Non-selective His bundle pacing with a biphasic anodal-first waveform (AF-nHB) and compared their effects against sinus rhythm (SR)...

Aims: To assess the diagnostic outcomes of a multidisciplinary pathway for elderly syncope patients. Methods and results: Observational cohort study at a Fall and Syncope Clinic, including consecutive syncope patients aged ≥65 years between 2011 and 2014. Measurements: The sort, number, and accuracy of diagnoses resulting in syncope. Secondary outcomes: reliability of the medical history and the number of electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities. The 117 included patients (72% females) had a mean age of 80 ± 6...

Aim: We tested the hypothesis that left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) interferes with the antithrombotic effects of dabigatran and warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Methods and results: This is a post-hoc analysis of the Randomized Evaluation of Long-term anticoagulation therapY (RE-LY) Study. We defined LVH by electrocardiography (ECG) and included patients with AF on the ECG tracing at entry. Hazard ratios (HR) for each dabigatran dose vs. warfarin were calculated in relation to LVH...

Aims: Shortening of the atrial-His bundle (AH) interval during the sinus rhythm is occasionally observed after slow pathway ablation for atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT). In addition, high-rate atrial pacing is useful for avoiding atrioventricular block. We hypothesized that shortening of the AH interval during slow pathway ablation under high-rate atrial pacing would lead to successful ablation of typical AVNRT. Methods and results: This retrospective study included 37 patients in whom successful ablation of typical AVNRT was performed under atrial pacing...

Aims: To determine the impact of permanent cardiac pacing after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with the CoreValveTM prosthesis in terms of all-cause mortality and morbidity [rehospitalizations for heart failure (HF) or stroke] at the long-term follow-up. Methods and results: The prospective analysis comprised 259 patients (138 women, 53.3%, age 78 ± 6 years) treated by a CoreValveTM prosthesis from April 2008 to December 2015. Forty-two patients were excluded for analysis: 9 with pre-existing permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation, 19 who required a PPM during the follow-up and 14 patients because of hospital mortality during or after the CoreValveTM prosthesis implantation procedure...

Aims: Epicardial structural abnormalities at the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) may provide the arrhythmia substrate in Brugada syndrome (BrS). Electroanatomical endocardial unipolar voltage mapping is an emerging tool that accurately identifies epicardial abnormalities in different clinical settings. This study investigated whether endocardial unipolar voltage mapping of the RVOT detects electroanatomical abnormalities in patients with BrS. Methods and results: Ten asymptomatic patients (8 males, 34...

Aims: Elevated levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hsTnT) indicate underlying heart disease and are known to predict adverse outcomes in various patient populations. Their role in atrial fibrillation (AF) is still under debate. Methods and results: This retrospective study included 2898 consecutive patients presenting with AF to the emergency department of the Department of Cardiology, Heidelberg University Hospital. Multivariable Cox regression was used to assess associations between hsTnT and mortality...

Aims: Totally subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) delivers higher shock energy and can have longer time to therapy compared to transvenous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (T-ICD). Aim of the study was to compare time to therapy and to investigate cardiac, cerebral and systemic injuries of S-ICD and T-ICD shocks delivered after ventricular fibrillation (VF) induction. Methods and results: Fourteen pigs were randomly implanted with a S-ICD (n = 7) or a T-ICD (n = 7)...

Aims: Several studies showed reduced stroke severity in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) if the international normalized ratio (INR) was ≥ 2 at stroke onset. There are no respective data for non-vitamin K-dependent oral anticoagulants (NOACs). The aim of this study was to compare the impact of NOAC or phenprocoumon intake on stroke severity. Methods and results: In this single-centre observational study, 3669 patients with acute ischaemic stroke were retrospectively analysed regarding AF status and medication immediately before admission...
