Subclinical atrial fibrillation and the risk of stroke.

Atrial fibrillation AF poses a significant burden to patients, physicians, and healthcare systems globally. Substantial research efforts and resources are being directed towards gaining detailed information about the mechanisms underlying AF, its natural course and effective treatments. New evidence is continuously generated and published. The complexity of AF requires a multifaceted, holistic, and multidisciplinary approach to the management of AF patients, with their active involvement in partnership with clinicians. Streamlining the care of patients with AF in daily clinical practice is a challenging but essential requirement for effective management of AF. In recent years, substantial progress has been made in the detection of AF and its management, and timely new evidence is integrated in this third edition of the ESC Guidelines on AF.

Overall, there were 29 thromboembolic events for person-years. In tertile 1, there were 5 events over person-years in which patients spent 0. In tertile 2, there were 7 events over person-years in which patients spent 2. In tertile 3, there were 17 events over person-years in which patients spent A, Unadjusted and multivariable-adjusted results for the cumulative burden of AF and the duration of the longest episode of AF in the overall cohort.

We invited him to write the editorial review for this issue. The subject — how to treat the silent atrial fibrillation that fibrillation discovered only by devices and take the decision to anti coagulate or not — is a very important clinical judgement. He remains one of the most outstanding professors of internal medicine in Romania. In , professor Leonida Gherasim will be 90 years old.

To determine stroke risk in subclinical atrial fibrillation AF and temporal association between subclinical AF and stroke.


Atrial fibrillation is defined as subclinical SAF when occurs without symptoms and is discovered only during the interrogation of permanent or temporary cardiac implantable devices. The significant interest in this condition derives from the fact that could easily be otherwise undiagnosed, portending to a potential serious neurological and cardiovascular consequences. The diagnosis of SAF is important for both the primary form and for patients after a stroke, and an appropriate management of antithrombotic treatment becomes a central instrument of prevention. Atrial fibrillation carries a five times increase in the thromboembolic risk. The subclinical asymptomatic forms of atrial tachyarrhythmias and fibrillation, diagnosed by interrogation of implantable cardiac devices, foretell a non-irrelevant risk of stroke, significantly higher than the one for patients without rhythm disturbances. Regardless the cause, the long-lasting asymptomatic arrhythmias, in patients with a significant risk profile, predict more important consequences and can justify anticoagulant treatment, also in primary prevention settings. Take home message The incidence of atrial fibrillation is continuously increasing in both clinical and subclinical forms.

Atrial high rate episodes AHREs , also termed, subclinical atrial tachyarrhythmias or subclinical atrial fibrillation AF are an important cardiovascular condition. Advancement in implantable cardiac devices such as pacemakers or internal cardiac defibrillators has enabled the continuous assessment of atrial tachyarrhythmias in patients with an atrial lead. Patients with device-detected AHREs are at an elevated risk of stroke and may have unmet anticoagulation needs.

The Portuguese Journal of Cardiology, the official journal of the Portuguese Society of Cardiology, was founded in with the aim of keeping Portuguese cardiologists informed through the publication of scientific articles on areas such as arrhythmology and electrophysiology, cardiovascular surgery, intensive care, coronary artery disease, cardiovascular imaging, hypertension, heart failure and cardiovascular prevention. The Journal is a monthly publication with high standards of quality in terms of scientific content and production. Since it has been published in English as well as Portuguese, which has widened its readership abroad. It is distributed to all members of the Portuguese Societies of Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Pneumology and Cardiothoracic Surgery, as well as to leading non-Portuguese cardiologists and to virtually all cardiology societies worldwide. It has been referred in Medline since

Вспомнив всю услышанную от шефа ложь, она похолодела и посмотрела на него, в глазах ее мелькнуло подозрение. - Это вы убили Танкадо. Стратмор вздрогнул и замотал головой: - Конечно. Убивать Танкадо не было необходимости. Честно говоря, я бы предпочел, чтобы он остался жив. Его смерть бросает на Цифровую крепость тень подозрения.

Сьюзан была озадачена. - Это по-латыни, - объяснил Хейл.  - Из сатир Ювенала. Это значит - Кто будет охранять охранников?. - Не понимаю. Кто будет охранять охранников.

Не было видно даже кнопочных электронных панелей на дверях кабинетов. Когда ее глаза привыкли к темноте, Сьюзан разглядела, что единственным источником слабого света в шифровалке был открытый люк, из которого исходило заметное красноватое сияние ламп, находившихся в подсобном помещении далеко внизу.

 Директор, Стратмору не удается отключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ. - Что?! - хором вскричали Бринкерхофф и Фонтейн. - Он пытался, сэр! - Мидж помахала листком бумаги.  - Уже четыре раза.

Она кивнула. - Потеряла билет. Они не хотят и слышать о том, чтобы посадить меня в самолет.

Затем он его уничтожит, и Цифровая крепость навсегда исчезнет из Интернета. - Действуй своим маячком очень осторожно, - сказал Стратмор.  - Если Северная Дакота заподозрит, что мы его ищем, он начнет паниковать и исчезнет вместе с паролем, так что никакая штурмовая группа до него не доберется.

На авиалиниях работают одни бездушные бюрократы. У меня нет денег на новый билет. - Где твои родители? - спросил Беккер. - В Штатах. - А связаться с ними пробовала.

 - Его доводы звучали волне убедительно. Сьюзан перевела дыхание. Энсей Танкадо умер.
