Abstract null null Background null To evaluate long-term efficacy of left atrial appendage occlusion with multiple devices. null null null Methods null All consecutive patients who underwent left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) with a follow-up of at least 4 years, were included in this single center, retrospective registry. No specific exclusion criteria were applied. LAA occlusion was performed with the Watchman, Watchman FLX, Amplatzer Cardiac plug or Amplatzer Amulet occluder devices. null...

Background: after transvenous lead extraction (TLE) of cardiac implantable electric devices (CIEDs), some patients may not benefit from device reimplantation. This study sought to analyse predictors and long-term outcome of patients after TLE with vs. without reimplantation in a high-volume centre. Methods: all patients undergoing TLE at our centre between January 2010 and November 2015 were included into this analysis. Results: a total of 223 patients (median age 70 years, 22.0% female) were in...

AIMS In arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM), sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) typically displays a left bundle branch block (LBBB) morphology while a right bundle branch block (RBBB) morphology is rare. The present study assesses the VT morphology in ACM patients with sustained VT and their clinical and genetic characteristics. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-six centres from 11 European countries provided information on 954 ACM patients who had ≥1 episode of sustained VT spontaneously document...

Life-threatening refractory unstable ventricular arrhythmias in presence of advanced heart failure (HF) may determine haemodynamic impairment. Haemodynamic mechanical support (HMS) in this setting has a relevant role to restore end-organ perfusion. Catheter ablation (CA) of ventricular tachycardia (VT) is effective at achieving rhythm stabilization, allowing patient's weaning from HMS, or bridging to permanent HF treatments. Acute heart decompensation during CA at anaesthesia induction in presen...

OBJECTIVES To assess by a continuous implantable rhythm monitoring (ILR) the mid-term outcomes of a staged-hybrid approach for patients with persistent/long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) and dilated atria. METHODS Fifty patients [age 57 (standard deviation, SD: 8.3), previous catheter ablation 66%, AF history 6.5 (2-12) years, left ventricular ejection fraction 56 (SD: 7.9)%, left atrial volume index 44 (38-56) ml/m2] with persistent (44%) or long-standing persistent (56%) AF, und...

To assess the role of intense physical activity (PA) on recurrence after ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation in arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM). We retrospectively analyzed 63 patients with definite diagnosis of ACM who underwent to catheter ablation (CA) of VT. PA was quantified in METs per week by IPAQ questionnaire in 51 patients. VT-free survival time after ablation was analyzed by Kaplan–Meier’s curves. The weekly amount of PA was higher in patients with VT recurrence (2303.1 METs vs ...

Background null Limited clinical data exist describing the use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patient with extreme body weight. Thus, the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) recommends avoiding DOACs in patients with weight >120 Kg, and on the contrary, no restrictions exist for underweight patients. null Objective null To evaluate the effects of extreme body weight on DOAC activity and to compare the clinical outcomes of patients with an extreme body weight vers...

Background null The outcomes of patients presenting with acute myocarditis and life-threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmias (LT-VA) are unclear. The aim of this study was to assess incidence and predictors of recurrence of major arrhythmic events (MAEs) after hospital discharge in such patients. null Methods and results null We retrospectively analysed 156 patients (median age 44 years; 77% males) discharged with a diagnosis of acute myocarditis and LT-VA from 16 hospitals worldwide. Diagnosis ...

BACKGROUND Limited real-world data are available regarding the comparison about safety and efficacy of DOACs prescription in very elderly patients (≥85 years) with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). Concern about the risk of bleeding with anticoagulation in very older patients still represents an important challenge for clinicians. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the different prevalence of major bleeding and thromboembolic events between very elderly NVAF patients (≥85 years) compared to those non ...
