Holter monitors are tools of proven efficacy in diagnosing and monitoring cardiac arrhythmias. Despite the fact their use is widely prescribed by general practitioners, little is known about their evolving role in the management of patients with cryptogenic stroke, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, unexplained recurrent syncope and risk stratification in implantable cardioverter defibrillator or pacemaker candidates. New Holter monitoring technologies and loop recorders allow prolonged monitoring of heart rhythm for periods from a few days to several months, making it possible to detect infrequent arrhythmias in patients of all ages...

BACKGROUND: Supernormal and alternating conduction are not rare in clinical arrhythmology, detectable at various levels of the conduction system in different pathophysiological conditions, and often associated, so as to justify the search for a possible link between them. METHODS: In order to define a possible relationship between supernormal and alternating conduction, the electrophysiological data of two patient groups were analyzed. Group 1 included 9 patients with intermittent bundle branch block in the presence of supernormal conduction through the pathological branch...

AIMS: Atrioventricular junction (AVJ) ablation followed by biventricular pacing is an established strategy for improving symptoms and morbidity in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation (AF), reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and uncontrolled ventricular rate. There is no clear evidence that such patients benefit from rate-responsive (RR) pacing. METHODS AND RESULTS: This prospective, randomized, single-blind, multicentre study was designed as an intra-patient comparison and enrolled 60 patients (age 69...

RATIONALE: Atrial fibrillation is associated with a high risk of stroke and its prevalence increases in subjects aged ≥65 years. After an ischemic stroke, the use of standard monitoring methods may underestimate the detection rate of atrial fibrillation. Hence, it is very likely that even patients having a first atherothrombotic or lacunar stroke with high burden of vascular risk factors are exposed to increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation in the subsequent years and atrial fibrillation may be the cause underlying possible recurrent strokes AIM AND HYPOTHESIS: The Silent Atrial Fibrillation aFter Ischemic StrOke (SAFFO) trial has the objective to evaluate the detection of atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter as first diagnosis by implantable loop recorder in patients with first-ever atherothrombotic or lacunar stroke...

As of now, the study of ventricular arrhythmias (VA) is of topical interest for modern arrhythmology and cardiology. These arrhythmias constitute about 30% of all the arrhythmias and have a diverse etiopathogenetic basis. Having no noticeable impact on a patient's quality of life, VA may cause ventricular fibrillation, severe circulatory disorders, and sudden cardiac death. Objective of this study--to compare the capabilities of radiation techniques for evaluating ventricular hemodynamics and contractility in patients with VA...

V I Steklov
Analysis of provision of high-tech medical aid to patients with cardiac arrhythmia based at military medical facilities showed that the available means and workforce are sufficient for the purpose. In order to facilitate access to high-tech medical aid it is necessary to equip arrhythmologic departments with up-to-date-instruments and set up cabinets of electrocardiostimulation in regional (naval) hospitals for implantation of temporary and permanent pacemakers. A program is pending for education (primary specialization) and advanced training of specialists in clinical cardiac electrophysiology, interventional and surgical arrhythmology...

The indications for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy for the prevention of sudden cardiac death in patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction have rapidly expanded over the last 10 years on the basis of the very satisfying results of the numerous randomized clinical trials that have provided the framework for guidelines. However, the analysis of clinical practice in the real world has highlighted some important criticisms in the complex process of selection-management of those patients candidates for ICD therapy: 1) approximately one fourth of all ICD implantations is not justified by clinical evidence, 2) approximately one half of patients with an indication for ICD therapy do not undergo implantation, 3) the benefits from ICD therapy do not apply uniformly to all patients, 4) the relationship between the lifesaving benefit and the potential for harm of ICD therapy is still scarcely known...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is 1 of the most important healthcare issues and an important cause of healthcare expenditure. AF care requires specific arrhythmologic skills and complex treatment. Therefore, it is crucial to know its real affect on healthcare systems to allocate resources and detect areas for improving the standards of care. The present nationwide, retrospective, observational study involved 233 general practitioners. Each general practitioner completed an electronic questionnaire to provide information on the clinical profile, treatment strategies, and resources consumed to care for their patients with AF...

Impaired interatrial conduction or interatrial block is well documented but is not described as an individual electrocardiographic (ECG) pattern in most of ECG books, although the term atrial abnormalities to encompass both concepts, left atrial enlargement (LAE) and interatrial block, has been coined. In fact, LAE and interatrial block are often associated, similarly to what happens with ventricular enlargement and ventricular block. The interatrial blocks, that is, the presence of delay of conduction between the right and left atria, are the most frequent atrial blocks...
