Aims: The aim of this study was to identify medical and psychosocial risk factors for impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and poor psychological adjustment (PA) in young adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Methods and Results: A group of 188 patients (43% females, ages 18-30 years) with various types of CHD and 139 age-matched healthy controls (57% females) completed questionnaires assessing HRQoL, PA, social support, significant life events in the past year, education level, civil status, and employment status...

Aims: The management of anticoagulation therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and cancer is challenging due to increased thrombotic and bleeding risks. We sought to determine the safety and efficacy of rivaroxaban in patients with AF and a history of cancer. Methods and Results: ROCKET AF randomized 14,264 patients with AF to rivaroxaban or warfarin with a median follow-up of 1.9 years. Cox regression models were used to assess the association between cancer history and clinical outcomes, and the relative treatment effect of rivaroxaban versus warfarin in these patients...

Background: Actigraphy is increasingly incorporated into clinical practice to monitor intervention effectiveness and patient health in congestive heart failure (CHF). We explored the prognostic impact of actigraphy-quantified physical activity (AQPA) on CHF outcomes. Methods: PubMed and Medline databases were systematically searched for cross-sectional studies, cohort studies or randomised controlled trials from January 2007 to December 2017. We included studies that used validated actigraphs to predict outcomes in adult HF patients...

Aims: To examine the association between fulfilment of performance measures supported by clinical guidelines recommendations and 1-year mortality among patients with incident heart failure (HF) in Denmark. Methods and results: A nationwide population-based follow-up study based on the Danish Heart Failure Registry. All Danish hospital departments caring for patients with HF. We identified 24,308 in-and outpatients diagnosed with HF from 2003 to 2010. Quality of care was defined as receiving the guideline recommended processes of care: use of echocardiography, New-York-Heart-Association -classification, treatment with angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin-II-receptor blocker, betablockers, physical training and patient education...

Context: Quality-of-care registries have been shown to improve quality of healthcare and should be facilitated and encouraged. The data of these registries are also very valuable for medical data research.<b >While fully acknowledging the importance of re-using already available data for research purposes, there are concerns about how the applicable privacy legislation is dealt with. These concerns are also articulated in the new European law on privacy, the 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) which has come into force on May 25th 2018...

Aims: The current guidelines from the European Society of Cardiology and European Society of Anaesthesiology on non-cardiac surgery (ESC/ESA-NCS) divide surgical procedures into those associated with low (<1%), intermediate (1-5%), and high risk (>5%) of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Evaluating surgical risk might be particularly appropriate in patients with recent stent implantation and thus we validated the ESC/ESA-NCS classification in patients undergoing NCS within 1 year after coronary drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation...

Introduction: The durable polymer (DP) of a drug-eluting stent (DES) serves no function once drug elution is complete. To ascertain the benefits of bioabsorbable polymer (BP) over DP DESs requires a longer follow-up period, to overcome the time taken for polymer absorption. The primary aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the safety and efficacy of BP-DES with the DP-DES over mid (2 years) to long-term (3 to 5 years) follow-up. Methods: A thorough computer-based search was performed using Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, Google Scholar, and PubMed databases...

Aims: To investigate the causes of death and the associated clinical factors in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) in the contemporary clinical practice. Methods and Results: The Fushimi AF Registry is a community-based prospective survey of AF patients since March 2011 in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto. We investigated causes of death and the clinical indicators of cardiovascular (CV) and non-CV death in 4,045 patients with available follow-up data by the end of November 2016...

Aims: Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have consistently demonstrated superior efficacy in terms of stroke prevention and safety in terms of bleeding over vitamin K antagonist (VKA) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). The potential use of NOACs in AF patients requiring anti-platelet therapy has only been assessed in small meta-analyses reporting consistent benefits of NOACs over VKAs. However, the prescription costs of NOACs are higher than those of VKAs. The aim of his study was to estimate the cost-effectiveness of NOACs compared to VKAs in patients with non-valvular AF also requiring anti-platelet therapy with the Dutch healthcare system used as a surrogate of many European healthcare systems...

Aims: Randomized clinical trials investigating a possible outcome effect of remote monitoring in patients with implantable defibrillators have shown conflicting results. This study analyses information flow and workflow details from IN-TIME and discusses whether differences of message content, information speed and completeness, and workflow may contribute to the heterogeneous results. Methods and results: IN-TIME randomized 664 patients with an implantable cardioverter/defibrillator indication to daily remote monitoring vs...

Background: Perioperative cardiovascular outcomes of transplant surgery are not well defined. We evaluated the incidence of perioperative major cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) after non-cardiac transplant surgery from a large database of hospital admissions from the United States. Methods: Patients ≥18 years of age undergoing non-cardiac solid organ transplant surgery from 2004 to 2014 were identified from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's (HCUP) National Inpatient Sample (NIS)...

Aim: To explore the potential of small-area variation analysis as a tool for identifying unwarranted variation in oral anticoagulation (OAC) use and clinical outcomes in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and thereby identify locations with opportunity for improvement in AF care. Methods and results: Based on Danish health care registries, we conducted a nationwide historical cohort study including first-time AF patients with a CHA2DS2-VASc (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥ 75, diabetes, thromboembolism, vascular disease, age 65-74, and sex category) score ≥ 2 between 2007 and 2014 (n = 94 482)...
