S Arques, E Roux
Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac rhythm disorder encountered in daily clinical practice. It carries high morbidity and mortality rates, mainly related to sudden death, heart failure and stroke. Validation of noninvasive markers in the diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and risk stratification is therefore attractive in this clinical setting. The spectral tissue Doppler-derived E/e' ratio is a simple and user-friendly index which has been validated in the assessment of left ventricular diastolic pressures, regardless of rhythm...

AIMS: Quantification of systolic function in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is challenging. A novel approach, based on RR interval correction, to counteract the varying heart cycle lengths in AF has recently been proposed. Whether this method is superior in patients with systolic heart failure (HFrEF) with AF remains unknown. This study investigates the prognostic value of RR interval-corrected peak global longitudinal strain {GLSc = GLS/[RR^(1/2)]} in relation to all-cause mortality in HFrEF patients displaying AF during echocardiographic examination...

AIMS: Heart failure with preserved (HFpEF) and mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF) are becoming the most prevalent forms of heart failure. Patients with HFpEF/HFmrEF in atrial fibrillation (AF) have poorer survival and quality of life, but the mechanism underpinning this is unknown. We sought to investigate the influence of AF on the haemodynamic profile of HFpEF/HFmrEF patients at rest and during exercise. METHODS AND RESULTS: We invasively measured central haemodynamics at rest and during symptom-limited supine bicycle exercise in HFpEF/HFmrEF patients, 35 in sinus rhythm and 20 in AF with matched left ventricular ejection fraction...

REVIEW
Charlotte Andersson, Ramachandran S Vasan
In the past 2 decades, a high prevalence of risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as obesity, physical inactivity, and poor diet, has been observed among young individuals living in developed countries. The rate of substance abuse (opioids, cocaine, electronic cigarettes, and anabolic steroids) is also increasing among young adults, whereas cigarette smoking might be declining. Among younger individuals (aged 18-50 years), the incidence of cardiovascular diseases over the same time period has either been steady or has increased, in contrast to the trend towards a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease in adults aged >50 years...

BACKGROUND: Patients with heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) have higher circulating levels of NT-proBNP (N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide) than HF patients without AF. There is uncertainty about the prognostic importance of a given concentration of NT-proBNP in HF patients with and without AF. We investigated this question in a large cohort of patients with HF and reduced ejection fraction. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 14 737 patients with HF and reduced ejection fraction and a measurement of NT-proBNP at time of screening, enrolled in either the PARADIGM-HF trial (Prospective Comparison of ARNI With ACEI to Determine Impact on Global Mortality and Morbidity in Heart Failure) or the ATMOSPHERE trial (Aliskiren Trial to Minimize Outcomes in Patients With Heart Failure), of whom 3575 (24%) had AF on their baseline ECG...

BACKGROUND: Most data on the clinical epidemiology of atrial fibrillation (AF) comes from Western populations, and data for Asians are limited. We investigated the lifetime risk and projected number of AF among Asians. The annual risks of adverse events amongst AF patients, time trends and the risks compared to non-AF patients were analyzed. METHODS: From year 2000 to 2011, 289,559 patients aged ≥ 20 years experienced new-onset AF in Taiwan. The incidence, prevalence and lifetime risk of AF were calculated...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a clinically heterogeneous arrhythmia that is currently classified according to the variety of temporal rhythm based manifestations observed clinically, including 'first detected episode', 'paroxysmal', 'persistent', or 'permanent' AF. Despite being widely adopted by the most recent consensus guidelines, the utility of this classification system to stratify patients into distinct and clinically useful groups that have different outcomes including mortality, morbidity, specific cardiovascular outcomes, and quality of life (QoL), remains questionable...

Aims: Abnormal intracellular Ca 2+ cycling contributes to triggered activity and arrhythmias in the heart. We investigated the properties and underlying mechanisms for systolic triggered Ca 2+ waves in left atria from normal and failing dog hearts. Methods and Results: Intracellular Ca 2+ cycling was studied using confocal microscopy during rapid pacing of atrial myocytes (36 °C) isolated from normal and failing canine hearts (ventricular tachypacing model). In normal atrial myocytes (NAMs), Ca 2+ waves developed during rapid pacing at rates ≥ 3...

REVIEW
Sherif F Nagueh
Dyspnoea is a presenting symptom for patients with heart failure. It is often due to elevated left ventricular (LV) filling pressure but can be due to pulmonary disease or other non-cardiac reasons. While physical examination is useful, it has its limitations. Accordingly, non-invasive imaging has an important role in the diagnostic evaluation of patients with known or suspected heart failure. Echocardiography is usually the first test obtained and is used to determine LV volumes, ejection fraction and mass as well as right ventricular size and function, left and right atrial volumes, valvular lesions, and pulmonary artery pressures...
