The goal of the TCD-CA study is to determine the frequency of cerebral embolization during pulmonary vein isolation using continuous transcranial Doppler examination. Different parts of the procedure, different ablation techniques and periprocedural anticoagulation regimes will be compared.
This is a retrospective observational study drawing on data from the Brigham and Women's Home Hospital database. Sociodemographic and clinic data from a training cohort were used to train a machine learning algorithm to predict patient deterioration throughout a patient's admission. This algorithm was then validated in a validation cohort.
This observational prospective clinical investigation will evaluate the performance on an Artificial Intelligence (AI) solution interpreting ECG (electrocardiogram) collected from an Apple Watch (AI-AW) in the detection of Atrial Fibrillation (AF)
Title: PeAF-Box. Feasibility, Safety and Efficacy of Isolating the Left Atrial Posterior Wall (PWI) added to Pulmonary Vein Isolation (PVI) as First-Line Strategy in Treatment of Persistent Atrial Fibrillation (PeAF) Design: A prospective, observational, single center, unblinded, clinical study with 3 years of follow-up and two interventional procedures: An index ablation procedure and a reassessment/ reablation procedure after 6 months. Background: In patients with PeAF the effect of first-line ablation with pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is smaller than in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF), where PVI alone is effective in reducing symptoms and increasing quality of life. Adding PWI to PVI is increasingly used despite concerns about safety and efficacy. Objectives: (1) To use PVI + PWI as first-line ablation-strategy in participants with PeAF and to assess the feasibility of obtaining that goal. (2) To assess the safety of applying this lesion set - in terms of heat-induced injury to the esophagus - using esophagoscopy. 3) To asses arrhythmia burden using continuous monitoring for 3 years after ablation. (4) To assess the durability of the PVI + PWI lesion set by a relook/ reablation procedure after 6 months. (5) To follow the effect of PVI + PWI on participants' quality of life over three years. Study site: Dept of Cardiology - Electrophysiology Laboratory, Gentofte Hospital, University of Copenhagen. Study population: 24 patients referred for ablation of PeAF are asked for informed consent for these elements that surpass standard treatment in PeAF: (1) Taking amiodarone for 3 weeks prior to the index procedure to 3 weeks after the procedure, (2) Additional ablation with PWI compared to standard first-line therapy with PVI only. (3) Implantation of an implantable cardiac monitor (ICM), (4) Post-procedure esophagoscopy, (5) Regular clinic visits for 3 years post procedure, (6) Undergoing an interventional relook/ reablation procedure 6 months after the index procedure. Anticoagulation drugs during the procedure and follow up: To prevent thromboses participants are prescribed periprocedural oral anticoagulant treatment to be continued for shorter or longer/lifelong periods according to the participants' risk of thrombosis (the CHA2DS2-VASC score). Anti-arrhythmic drugs (AADs): Except from periprocedural amiodarone treatment, no AADs are allowed during the follow-up apart from occurrence of otherwise untreatable arrhythmias.
The purpose of this observational study is to identify participants with both minor and major bleeds as a result of anticoagulant treatment for AF and evaluating their QoL through both primary and secondary care settings.
This prospective study aims to identify the diagnostic accuracy of echocardiographic predictors of atrial fibrillation in patients with ESUS (embolic stroke of undetermined source) or TIA (transient ischemic attack).
A prospective, multi-center study with the CathVision Cube® system and the PVI Analyzer software in radiofrequency (RF) and cryo balloon procedures.
Ablation of atrial fibrillation is standard therapy for symptomatic patients or patients with severely reduced systolic left ventricular ejection fraction. Complications of the procedure are ischemic thrombembolic stroke. Therefore periprocedural treatment with heparin is administered to acchieve a therapeutic anticoagulation. The efficacy of anticoagulation is measured by active-clotting time (ACT) which is measured with blood drawn mostly from the V. femoralis. Despite controlled anticoagulation periprocedural stroke is published with an incidence of up to 2% and asymptomatic cerebral embolization from 2% to 15%. The ACT-Trial has two aims: 1. Analysis of the influence of the localization of blood drawing on the measured ACT: blood from central venous line, from LA and from LAA. 2. Dependency of the ACT measured in the blood of the LAA with regard to anatomic und functional LAA-measurements. Patients will be included scheduled for left atrial ablation procedure and will be divided in two groups: atrial fibrillation at time of procedure and sinus rhythm at time of procedure.
This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of FlecIH-103 (flecainide acetate inhalation solution) compared with placebo in patients with recent-onset, symptomatic newly diagnosed or paroxysmal AF. Approximately 400 patients are expected to be enrolled in this study. Patients will be randomized 3:1 to receive FlecIH-103 at a total dose of up to 120 mg estimated total lung dose (eTLD) (n=300) or placebo inhalation solution (n=100). Randomization will be stratified by geographic region (US and ex-US) and duration of symptoms of the current AF episode (≥1 hour to ≤24 hours and >24 hours to ≤48 hours).
This study is a retrospective analysis of observational cohorts using data from prospectively collected administrative/claims data to investigate treatment patterns, and safety and effectiveness outcomes in patients with NVAF with high risk of gastrointestinal bleed who initiate anticoagulant treatment with a VKAs or DOACs.
