REVIEW
J Zheng, Z Li, Q Li, X Li
This meta-analysis was designed to determine the effect of an intracardiac lateral tunnel (ILT) versus an extracardiac conduit (ECC) on patients undergoing a Fontan procedure. A search of the literature in PubMed, Embase, China Academic Literature, and Wanfang databases yielded 23 studies comprising approximately 1000 patients for analysis. There were statistically significant differences between ILT and ECC in the frequency of early sinus node dysfunction, early total arrhythmias, late supraventricular tachycardia, late sinus node dysfunction, late total arrhythmias, and need for pacemaker...

Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is common in cardiomyopathy patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. This analysis evaluated antiarrhythmic medication use and change in use over time in patients with VT and structural heart disease. Query of Medicare claims identified patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator and VT. Patients with atrial fibrillation or supraventricular tachycardia were excluded. Two cohorts were created of patients enrolled in Medicare Part D for the 12 months before 2007 and 2012...

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare condition characterized by an increase in pulmonary arterial resistance leading to right heart failure and death. Arrhythmias are a growing problem in PAH; therefore, maintenance of sinus rhythm is considered to be an important treatment aim in these patients. We described the case of a 46-year-old woman with HIV-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension  who developed atrial flutter. After treatment with bosentan, it was observed a significant improvement in clinical and haemodynamic parameters...

A 20-year-old warmblood breeding stallion presented to a University practice for semen collection and evaluation was incidentally diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AF). Electrocardiogram recordings during breeding revealed inappropriately rapid tachycardia and occasional ventricular premature depolarizations/aberrant ventricular conduction. Transvenous electrical cardioversion was performed. After successful cardioversion the horse displayed supraventricular ectopy and atrial contractile dysfunction and was administered sotalol hydrochloride in an attempt to decrease the risk of AF recurrence...

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare form of congenital heart disease in which the persistence of the right ventricle as the systemic ventricle leads to heart failure, tricuspid valve insufficiency, and arrhythmia. Supraventricular arrhythmias are especially common in these patients. We discuss the anesthetic management of a 33-year-old patient with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries who required a ventricular assist device to maintain cardiac output during ablation of supraventricular tachyarrythmia...

OBJECTIVE: Although ED patients presenting with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) are commonly investigated, the value of these investigations has been questioned. We aimed to determine the frequency and utility of investigations in patients with SVT. METHODS: We undertook an explicit retrospective medical record audit of patients with SVT who presented to a single ED (January 2004 to June 2014). Data on demographics, presenting complaints, investigations and outcomes were extracted...

INTRODUCTION: The cardiac sodium channel SCN5A regulates atrioventricular and ventricular depolarization as well as cardiac conduction. Patients with cardiac electrical abnormalities have an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and cardio-embolic stroke. Optimal management of cardiac disease includes the understanding of association between the causative mutations and the clinical phenotype. A 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is an easy and inexpensive tool for finding risk patients...

BACKGROUND: Bronchial asthma (BA) is a serious problem. It was found that the frequency of arterial hypertension (AH) detection in patients with asthma is about 30 %. At patients practically all types of violations of a warm rhythm meet a bronkhoobstruktivny syndrome. Emergence of rather new preparations - If-blockers, opens new opportunities in correction of heart rate (HR) and a cardioprotection at a combination of AH and BA. AIM: To assess therapy diltiazem-retard and ivabradine on structurally functional changes of a cardiac muscle and HR at patients with AH in combination with BA...

The article contains review of data on the problem of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Large studies have shown that risk of cardiovascular mortality in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is 2-3 times greater than in general population. The incidence of COPD and ischemic heart disease (IHD) progressively rises with age. Combination of these diseases is often observed in clinical practice among patients older than 40 years. According to the population study published in 2015 COPD has been associated with elevated risk of SCD especially in patients with frequent exacerbations within 5 years after diagnosis...

We report a 48-day-old female infant, who developed cardiac conduction abnormalities and seizures secondary to supratherapeutic doses of oral flecainide. Flecainide was started in this infant for treatment of supraventricular tachycardia. The drug was withdrawn with successful normalization of the QRS complex and no further recurrence of seizures. The Naranjo probability score for adverse drug reaction was 8, making the causality "probable." The case restates an important message that physicians should be aware of the side effects of the drugs that they prescribe, especially of those drugs which have a narrow therapeutic window...

Purpose The aim of this study was to determine whether the exercise tolerance test can provide diagnostic and prognostic information regarding children and young adults and help predict outcome. METHODS: A total of 87 patients, aged 7-29 years (median 13, mean 13.4) were selected retrospectively. They underwent exercise test at the Freeman Hospital from December, 2015 to May, 2016. There were two groups of patients - 46 had symptoms such as chest pain, palpitations, syncope, or dyspnoea on exertion and no cardiac diagnosis, and 40 patients had a cardiac diagnosis such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, transposition of the great arteries with post-arterial switch operation, aortic stenosis or regurgitation, tetralogy of Fallot, abnormal coronary arteries, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, or supraventricular tachycardia...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the treatment of persistent supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) in a young horse in endurance training. CASE SUMMARY: A 6-year-old Arab gelding in endurance training presented for a dysrhythmia and decreased performance. SVT was diagnosed and conversion to a normal sinus rhythm was achieved following administration of a constant rate infusion of amiodarone. However, reversion to SVT occurred shortly after initiation of ridden exercise. A second attempt to convert the dysrhythmia with amiodarone failed, but normal sinus rhythm was achieved with transvenous electrical cardioversion (TVEC)...

Fetal arrhythmia is a common reason for referral to fetal cardiology. Fetal supraventricular tachycardia can be subdivided into several groups with the most common being re-entrant supraventricular tachycardia and atrial flutter. Fetal tachycardia can lead to hydrops fetalis, which increases the risk of fetal demise, perinatal morbidities, and premature delivery. The diagnosis of fetal tachycardia can be a challenge as a traditional electrocardiogram cannot be completed on a fetus, and other methods must be used by fetal echocardiogram...

We describe our experience with two cases of acute gastric dilation after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for supraventricular arrhythmia. After the RFCA procedure, patients experienced epigastric pain, abdominal distension, and vomiting. Computed tomography showed marked dilation of their stomachs, but without apparent obstruction of the gastric antrum or the duodenum. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy and upper gastrointestinal series revealed significant gastroparesis. We considered that gastric hypomotility had been induced by vagus nerve injury after RFCA...

The aim of our article is to provide a concise review for clinicians entailing the main studies that evaluated the efficacy and safety of target-specific oral anticoagulants (TSOAs) for thromboembolic stroke prevention in the real-world setting. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most common supraventricular arrhythmias that requires anticoagulation therapy to prevent stroke and systemic embolism. TSOAs, dabigatran, apixaban and rivaroxaban have become available as an alternative to warfarin anticoagulation in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF)...
