Despite the huge progress made in the both understanding the mechanisms and the management of atrial fibrillation (AF) this arrhythmia still represents an important health and social burden. Atrial fibrillation is increasing in frequency and is a major cause of death, stroke, heart failure, cognitive decline, and hospitalizations. New data have emerged emphasizing the multidisciplinary approach to better management of this common arrhythmia. Despite the availability of AF management guidelines, practice among European centres may differ from the current guideline recommendations...

Prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains a partly unsolved task in cardiology. The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines on management of patients with ventricular arrhythmias and prevention of SCD published in 2015 considered the new insights of the natural history of diseases predisposing to SCD. The guidelines improved strategies for management of patients at risk of SCD and included both drug and device therapies. The intention of this survey was to evaluate the extent of the disparities between daily clinical practice and the 2015 SCD ESC guidelines among electrophysiology centres in Europe...

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor is the cornerstone of pharmacologic management of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and/or those receiving coronary stents. Long-term (>1 year) DAPT may further reduce the risk of stent thrombosis after a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and may decrease the occurrence of non-stent-related ischaemic events in patients with ACS. Nevertheless, compared with aspirin alone, extended use of aspirin plus a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor may increase the risk of bleeding events that have been strongly linked to adverse outcomes including recurrent ischaemia, repeat hospitalisation and death...

Even with the improvement in lifestyle interventions, a better control of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors, and improvements in CV outcomes, cardiovascular disease (CVD) still persists as the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Portugal and Europe. Atherogenic dyslipidaemias, namely hypercholesterolaemia, have a crucial and causal role in the development of atherosclerotic CVD. The clinical approach of a patient with dyslipidaemia involves a watchful diagnosis, sustained in lipid and lipoprotein laboratory procedures, which must be harmonized and standardized...

In the last two decades, catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) has evolved into a procedure with both efficacy in reduction of AF burden and safety. This has led to changes in guidelines from ESC, AHA/ACC and HRS1, 2 now recommending a catheter ablation procedure as a viable first line treatment option for patients suffering from AF with and without heart failure (HF). Current recommendations are based on relief of symptoms and not prevention of mortality and morbidity.

Clinical management of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is an emergency situation. Primary aim is urgent reestablishment of reperfusion by means of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The European society of cardiology recently published the latest version of the guideline for management of patients with STEMI. A clear recommendation now exists for radial approach as access side for PCI as well as an intervention including the implantation of a drug eluting stent (DES). In patients with STEMI and multi vessel disease a complete revascularization should be planned on an individual basis either as part of the index procedure or as staged procedure...

This article updates the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2007 classification of advanced heart failure and describes new diagnostic and treatment options for these patients. Recognizing the patient with advanced heart failure is critical to facilitate timely referral to advanced heart failure centres. Unplanned visits for heart failure decompensation, malignant arrhythmias, co-morbidities, and the 2016 ESC guidelines criteria for the diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction are included in this updated definition...

In the latest update of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for the management of infective endocarditis (IE), imaging is positioned at the centre of the diagnostic work-up so that an early and accurate diagnosis can be reached. Besides echocardiography, contrast-enhanced CT (ce-CT), radiolabelled leucocyte (white blood cell, WBC) SPECT/CT and [18 F]FDG PET/CT are included as diagnostic tools in the diagnostic flow chart for IE. Following the clinical guidelines that provided a straightforward message on the role of multimodality imaging, we believe that it is highly relevant to produce specific recommendations on nuclear multimodality imaging in IE and cardiac implantable electronic device infections...

REVIEW
Irene M Lang
Guidelines and recommendations are designed to guide physicians in making decisions in daily practice. Guidelines provide a condensed summary of all available evidence at the time of the writing process. Recommendations take into account the risk-benefit ratio of particular diagnostic or therapeutic means and the impact on outcome, but not monetary or political considerations. Guidelines are not substitutes but are complementary to textbooks and cover the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) core curriculum topics...

OBJECTIVE: Exaggerated blood pressure (BP) response to exercise testing has been linked to left ventricular hypertrophy and myocardial fibrosis in competitive athletes. Due to frequent training, athletes are particularly exposed to high BP levels, but data on the magnitude and distribution of BP response to exercise in athletic populations is scarce. METHODS: Cycle ergometry was performed in 2419 healthy competitive adolescent, professional and master athletes (age 26 ± 12 years, range 9-74, 27% women, 84 disciplines) for preparticipation screening...

BACKGROUND: A significant number of variables are obtained when characterizing patients suspected with myocardial ischemia or at risk of MACE. Guidelines typically use a handful of them to support further workup or therapeutic decisions. However, it is likely that the numerous available predictors maintain intrinsic complex interrelations. Machine learning (ML) offers the possibility to elucidate complex patterns within data to optimize individual patient classification. We evaluated the feasibility and performance of ML in utilizing simple accessible clinical and functional variables for the identification of patients with ischemia or an elevated risk of MACE as determined through quantitative PET myocardial perfusion reserve (MPR)...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) occurs approximately in 3% of general population, with greater prevalence in elderly. Non-vitamin K-dependent oral anticoagulant agents (NOACs) according to the current European guidelines are recommended for patients with AF at high risk for stroke as a first-choice treatment. NOACs are not inferior to warfarin or some of them are better than warfarin in reducing the rate of ischemic stroke. Moreover, they significantly reduce the rate of intracranial hemorrhages, major bleedings, and mortality compared with warfarin...

The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD®, Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA, previously Cameron Health, San Clemente, CA, USA) represents an important milestone in ICD therapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Since the introduction of the S‑ICD in 2010, the device has undergone further development. Based on the unique feature of an entirely extracardiac implantation, the S‑ICD is able to reduce the common perioperative and long-term complications of the usual endovascular implanted ICD systems...

REVIEW

Syncope is a common cause for presentation to the emergency department. Because of the numerous differential diagnoses which can be life-threatening, it can be a challenging work-up for the physician. This often results in admission rates that are too high and hospital stays that are too long with consequent high costs. Several studies have shown the inferiority of best-clinical practice to an evidence-based approach in syncope work-up, which results in underdiagnosis and often incorrect diagnosis of syncope...

In 2012, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines provided recommendations on the management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The recommendation from these guidelines is restricted to the European subcontinent. To adapt the updated recommendations for Indian subset of STEMI patients, a panel of experts in the management of STEMI provided their expert opinions. This document provides expert consensus on adapting 2012 ESC STEMI guidelines recommendations in Indian setting. Document also discussed "India-specific" relevant literature to support the consensus opinions provided in the management of STEMI...
