Background/aims Atrial fibrillation (AF)-related stroke accounts for 20% of ischemic strokes. Rivaroxaban use in AF patients for preventing stroke and systemic embolism was approved in 2013 in Korea. This study was to investigate the safety and effectiveness of rivaroxaban use in Korean patients with non-valvular AF in a real-world setting. Methods This was an analysis of the Korean patients in XANAP, which was a prospective, observational cohort study including patients with non-valvular AF sta...

Background/Aims: Vascular disease is an established risk factor for stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), which is included in CHA2DS2-VASc score. However, the role of carotid atherosclerosis remains to be determined. Methods: Three hundred-ten patients with AF who underwent carotid sonography were enrolled. Results: During a median follow-up of 31 months, 18 events (5.8%) of stroke were identified. Patients with stroke had higher carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) (1.16 +/- 0.33 ...

Background - Persistent atrial fibrillation (PeAF) can change to paroxysmal AF (PAF) after antiarrhythmic drug (AAD) medication and cardioversion. We investigated whether electrical posterior box i...

Abstract Background Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are underutilized in Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Improve SCA is the largest prospective study to evaluate the benefit of ICD therapy in under-represented geographies. This analysis reports the primary objective of the study. Objectives To determine whether primary prevention (PP) patients with specific risk factors (1.5PP: syncope, NSVT, PVCs>10/h, LVEF Methods A total of 3,889 patients were incl...

The Cockcroft-Gault (CG) formula is recommended to guide clinicians in the choice of the appropriate dosage for direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). However, the performance of the CG formula varies depending on the patient’s age, weight, and degree of renal function. We aimed to compare the validity of the CG formula with that of Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) and Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formulae for dosing DOACs. A total of 6268 consecutive pati...

Ischemic stroke after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients is a great challenge for electrophysiologists. We performed this retrospective study to evaluate clinical and echocardiographic characteristics associated with increased risk of ischemic stroke following RFCA. A total of 2,352 consecutive patients with AF who underwent first-time RFCA were analyzed. Among 10,023 patient*year follow up, ischemic stroke occurred in 49 patients (0.49% per year). Late ...

AIMS: Findings regarding efficacy of substrate modification for non-paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) are inconsistent. We prospectively compared clinical outcomes of complex fractionated atrial electrogram (CFAE)-guided focal ablation (CFA) and CFAE-guided linear ablation (CLA) in patients with non-paroxysmal AF. METHODS AND RESULTS: We randomized 150 patients with non-paroxysmal AF into CFA and CLA groups in a 1:1 ratio. Complex fractionated atrial electrogram distribution was evaluated usin...

Blood stasis in left atrium (LA) or LA appendage (LAA) is thought to be the main cause of thrombus formation and systemic embolism in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. Paroxysmal and non-paroxysmal AF differ significantly in various aspects. Impact of cardiac hemodynamics on systemic embolism might also differ between the 2 distinct AF entities. This study was performed to evaluate the influence of cardiac hemodynamics on systemic embolism in both paroxysmal and non-paroxysmal AF. Consecutive A...

Background Electrical isolation of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is associated with a lower rate of atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence in patients undergoing radiofrequency catheter ablation. However, LAA isolation can significantly impair LAA contractility. Objective This study was performed to evaluate whether electrical isolation of the LAA is associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Methods Consecutive patients with AF undergoing radiofreque...
