Atrial fibrillation, arythmia

Laure De Decker, Marine Gegu, Pascal Chevalet, Gilles Berrut
UNLABELLED: The atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most important cause of arythmia and cerebrovascular disease in clinical practice. Comorbidity is defined as the association of active chronical diseases and a target disease. METHOD: comparison between burden illness of the patients in interventional (n=4) and observational studies, form Medline database (n=4), was performed. RESULTS: the level of comorbidity tend to be higher in patients from interventional than large observational studies...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent arythmia. During the perioperative period and in intensive care units, management of patients with AF is frequent and difficult. As in cardiology, two main issues are present: the risk of acute hemodynamically instability and the risk of thromboembolic complication. Cardiological guidelines recently published must guide the management of patients in this context. Two main factors must be kept in mind: acute AF in these situations are often of short duration; the risk of anticoagulation can be superior to the risk of thrombotic complication in this situation...

The authors studied 101 patients with a combination of acute disorders of brain circulation and changes in the rhythm of heart activity in the form of sinus tachycardia, extra-systolia, fluttering arythmia. In ischemic strokes fluttering arythmia was encountered quite frequently while as in hemmorhages it was almost never seen. In 20 cases disorders of heart rhythm appeared following several days or more after the stroke. These data permit to assume that disorders of rhythm in the heart activity may be one of the pathogenetical factors of acute disorders of brain circulation...

As revealed by a very thorough cardiological study of Steinert's disease in 13 cases, it would appear that the incidence of cardiac involvement observed in this disease is not merely frequent; it is, in fact, usual, systematic, and forms an integral part of the pathological picture in the same way as peripheral muscular dystrophy. One is aware of the diagnostic interest of this fact in the juvenile or abortive forms of the disease. The cardiac involvement is an indication of the complete expression of the gene towards striated muscle tissue, whether skeletal or myocardial...
