Atrial Premature Complexes: A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.Ventricular Premature Complexes: A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.Moricizine: An antiarrhythmia agent used primarily for ventricular rhythm disturbances.Electrocardiography, Ambulatory: Method in which prolonged electrocardiographic recordings are made on a portable tape recorder (Holter-type system) or solid-state device ("real-time" system), while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It is useful in the diagnosis and management of intermittent cardiac arrhythmias and transient myocardial ischemia.Arrhythmias, Cardiac: Any disturbances of the normal rhythmic beating of the heart or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. Cardiac arrhythmias can be classified by the abnormalities in HEART RATE, disorders of electrical impulse generation, or impulse conduction.Radiology Information Systems: Information systems, usually computer-assisted, designed to store, manipulate, and retrieve information for planning, organizing, directing, and controlling administrative activities associated with the provision and utilization of radiology services and facilities.Stroke: A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)Atrial Fibrillation: Abnormal cardiac rhythm that is characterized by rapid, uncoordinated firing of electrical impulses in the upper chambers of the heart (HEART ATRIA). In such case, blood cannot be effectively pumped into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES). It is caused by abnormal impulse generation.Anticoagulants: Agents that prevent clotting.Warfarin: An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.Cardiac Complexes, Premature: A group of cardiac arrhythmias in which the cardiac contractions are not initiated at the SINOATRIAL NODE. They include both atrial and ventricular premature beats, and are also known as extra or ectopic heartbeats. Their frequency is increased in heart diseases.Long QT Syndrome: A condition that is characterized by episodes of fainting (SYNCOPE) and varying degree of ventricular arrhythmia as indicated by the prolonged QT interval. The inherited forms are caused by mutation of genes encoding cardiac ion channel proteins. The two major forms are ROMANO-WARD SYNDROME and JERVELL-LANGE NIELSEN SYNDROME.Electrocardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.Personnel Staffing and Scheduling Information Systems: Computer-based systems for use in personnel management in a facility, e.g., distribution of caregivers with relation to patient needs.Heart Rate: The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.New York CityNew YorkHeart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.Tachycardia, Ventricular: An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).Myocardial Infarction: NECROSIS of the MYOCARDIUM caused by an obstruction of the blood supply to the heart (CORONARY CIRCULATION).Fractals: Patterns (real or mathematical) which look similar at different scales, for example the network of airways in the lung which shows similar branching patterns at progressively higher magnifications. Natural fractals are self-similar across a finite range of scales while mathematical fractals are the same across an infinite range. Many natural, including biological, structures are fractal (or fractal-like). Fractals are related to "chaos" (see NONLINEAR DYNAMICS) in that chaotic processes can produce fractal structures in nature, and appropriate representations of chaotic processes usually reveal self-similarity over time.VietnamAzores: A group of nine islands and several islets belonging to Portugal in the north Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Portugal.

They can occur during or after pregnancy, and range from minor discomforts to serious diseases that require medical interventions. They include diseases in pregnant females, and pregnancies in females with diseases.Catheter Ablation: Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.Tachycardia, Supraventricular: A generic expression for any tachycardia that originates above the BUNDLE OF HIS.Pulmonary Veins: The veins that return the oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart.Tachycardia, Paroxysmal: Abnormally rapid heartbeats with sudden onset and cessation.Tachycardia: Abnormally rapid heartbeat, usually with a HEART RATE above 100 beats per minute for adults.

Exercise-induced uncommon atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia with sick sinus syndrome: a case report. (1/58)

Exercise seldom provokes tachycardia in patients with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT). This report presents a case of exercise-induced uncommon atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) with sick sinus syndrome. Treadmill exercise testing provoked AVNRT of long RP' with good reproducibility. Uncommon AVNRT was confirmed by the lack of atrial pre-excitation during PSVT and para-Hisian pacing. The patient has been successfully treated with verapamil and DDD pacing for 5 years.  (+info)

Initiation of atrial fibrillation by ectopic beats originating from the pulmonary veins: electrophysiological characteristics, pharmacological responses, and effects of radiofrequency ablation. (2/58)

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) can be initiated by ectopic beats originating from the atrial or great venous tissues. This study investigated the anatomic characteristics and electrophysiological properties of pulmonary veins (PVs), as well as the possible mechanisms and response to drugs of ectopic foci, and assessed the effects of radiofrequency (RF) ablation on AF initiated by ectopic beats originating from PVs. METHODS AND RESULTS: Seventy-nine patients with frequent episodes of paroxysmal AF and 10 control patients were included. Distal PVs showed the shortest effective refractory periods (ERPs), and right superior PVs showed a higher incidence of intra-PV conduction block than left superior PVs. Superior and left PVs had longer myocardial sleeves than inferior and right PVs, respectively. These electrophysiological characteristics were similar between AF and control patients. Propranolol, verapamil, and procainamide suppressed ectopic beats that originated from the PVs. Of 116 ectopic foci that initiated AF, 103 (88.8%) originated from PVs. A mean of 7+/-3 RF applications completely eliminated 110 ectopic foci (94.8%). During the 6+/-2-month follow-up period, 68 patients (86. 1%) were free of AF without any antiarrhythmic drugs. Follow-up transesophageal echocardiogram showed 42.4% of ablated PVs had focal stenosis. One patient had mild exertional dyspnea after ablation, but it resolved 3 months later; 1 patient had onset of mild exertional dyspnea 5 months after ablation. CONCLUSIONS: Electrophysiological characteristics of PVs are different from those in the atria. Ectopic beats from PVs can initiate AF, and beta-adrenergic receptor blocker, calcium channel blockers, and sodium channel blockers can suppress these ectopic beats. Careful mapping and elimination of these ectopic foci can cure paroxysmal AF.  (+info)

Altered complexity and correlation properties of R-R interval dynamics before the spontaneous onset of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. (3/58)

BACKGROUND: Trigger mechanisms for the onset of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients without structural heart disease are not well established. New analysis methods of heart rate (HR) variability based on nonlinear system theory may reveal features and abnormalities in R-R interval behavior that are not detectable by traditional analysis methods. The purpose of this study was to reveal possible alterations in the dynamics of R-R intervals before the spontaneous onset of paroxysmal AF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Traditional time and frequency domain HR variability indices, along with the short-term scaling exponent alpha(1) and approximate entropy (ApEn), were analyzed in 20-minute intervals before 92 episodes of spontaneous, paroxysmal AF in 22 patients without structural heart disease. Traditional HR variability measures showed no significant changes before the onset of AF. A progressive decrease occurred both in ApEn (1.09+/-0.26 120 to 100 minutes before AF; 0.88+/-0.24 20 to 0 minutes before AF; P<0.001) and in alpha(1) (1.01+/-0.28 120 to 100 minutes before AF, 0.89+/-0.28 20 to 0 minutes before AF; P<0.05) before the AF episodes. Both ApEn (0. 89+/-0.27 versus 1.02+/-0.30; P<0.05) and alpha(1) (0.91+/-0.28 versus 1.27+/-0.21; P<0.001) were also lower before the onset of AF compared with values obtained from matched healthy control subjects. CONCLUSIONS: A decrease in the complexity of R-R intervals and altered fractal properties in short-term R-R interval dynamics precede the spontaneous onset of AF in patients with no structural heart disease. Further studies are needed to determine the physiological correlates of these new, nonlinear HR variability measures.  (+info)

Cardiac arrhythmias and stroke: increased risk in men with high frequency of atrial ectopic beats. (4/58)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: With the exception of atrial fibrillation (AF), little scientific attention has been given the associations between cardiac arrhythmias and incidence of stroke. We sought to study whether atrial and ventricular arrhythmias assessed during a 24-hour ambulatory ECG registration are associated with incidence of stroke. METHODS: The population-based cohort "Men Born in 1914" was examined with 24-hour ambulatory ECG registrations at 68 years of age. Four hundred two men without previous myocardial infarction or stroke were included, and 236 of them had hypertension (>/=160/95 mm Hg or treatment). Fourteen-year rates of stroke (fatal and nonfatal) and all-cause mortality were updated from national and regional registers. Frequent or complex ventricular arrhythmias was defined as Lown class 2 to 5. A high frequency of atrial ectopic beats (AEB) was defined as the fifth quintile (ie, >/=218 AEB per 24 hours). RESULTS: Fifty-eight men suffered a first stroke during the follow-up. Stroke rates (per 1000 person-years) among men with AF (n=14), with frequent AEB (n=77), and without AF or frequent AEB (n=311) were 34.5, 19.5, and 11.6, respectively. The corresponding values among men with hypertension were 40.7, 32.3, and 14.7, respectively. Frequent AEB (compared with absence of AF and frequent AEB) was significantly associated with stroke among all men (relative risk=1.9; 95% CI, 1.02 to 3.4; P:=0.04) and among hypertensive men (relative risk=2.5; 95% CI, 1.3 to 4.8; P:=0.009) after adjustments for potential confounders. The increased stroke rates among men with Lown class 2 to 5 did not reach statistical significance. CONCLUSIONS: A high frequency of AEB is associated with an increased incidence of stroke.  (+info)

Evaluation of post-repolarization refractoriness for conduction block in cardiac muscle: studies in an artificial isthmus in the canine right atrium. (5/58)

Post-repolarization refractoriness (PRR) is an important factor in determining conduction block and is the difference between the effective refractory period (ERP) and the duration of the monophasic action potential (MAPD). In the present study, conduction block in an artificial isthmus in the canine atrium was evaluated and the coupling interval of a premature beat, which caused the block, was defined as the block coupling interval (BCI). The usefulness of this value was also evaluated. Radiofrequency linear ablation was performed on the right atrial surface parallel to the atrioventricular groove in 5 mongrel dogs, and an artificial isthmus (8-10mm wide and 25-30mm long) was created. Fourteen simultaneous unipolar recordings were performed in the isthmus with a resolution of 1.2 mm. Single extra-stimuli with basic drive train were delivered to induce conduction block in the isthmus and when it occurred, the coupling interval at the recording site just proximal to the site of the block was defined as the BCI. At the site of the block, the ERP and MAPD at each drive cycle length were measured. The PRR was calculated using 2 different formulae: (1) [ERP-MAPD], and (2) [BCI-MAPD]. It was found that each value was shortened in accordance with the shortening of the basic drive cycle length. In all basic drive trains, BCI>ERP>MAPD, and [ERP-MAPD] was always shorter than [BCI-MAPD]. In the shorter cycle length of basic drives, the difference between [ERP-MAPD] and [BCI-MAPD] was more prominent. In the artificial isthmus model in the canine atrium, BCI was always longer than the ERP measured at the same site as the block. Because the ERP may not directly reflect the block phenomenon, the electrophysiologic evaluation should use the BCI instead, as in the PRR evaluation.  (+info)

The class III antiarrhythmic drugs dofetilide and sotalol prevent AF induction by atrial premature complexes at doses that fail to terminate AF. (6/58)

BACKGROUND: Clinical trials suggest that sotalol and dofetilide are much more effective in preventing atrial fibrillation (AF) than in terminating it. This study evaluated potential mechanisms of discordant sotalol and dofetilide effects on AF termination vs. prevention. METHODS: We applied 240-electrode epicardial mapping and programmed stimulation in a vagotonic dog model of AF before and after dofetilide or sotalol. RESULTS: Under control conditions, sustained AF could be induced by single S(2) extrastimuli that caused unidirectional block and macroreentry. Sotalol (2 mg/kg) and dofetilide (0.04 mg/kg) failed to terminate AF in any dog, but prevented AF induction by S(2) stimuli in 19/22 (86%) and 4/5 (80%) of animals, respectively. With sotalol and dofetilide, unidirectional block still occurred, but wavefront reentry failed. The prevention of S(2)-induced reentry was related to large increases in the effective refractory period (ERP) at a BCL of 1000 ms, leading to ERPs that exceeded the conduction delay following S(2). Reverse use-dependent effects resulted in smaller ERP increases at BCLs closer to the AF cycle length. Although the number of zones of reactivation per cycle during sustained AF were decreased by sotalol and dofetilide, the changes were small and insufficient to terminate AF. CONCLUSIONS: Sotalol and dofetilide prevent AF initiation by premature depolarizations at doses that fail to terminate vagotonic AF, by increasing ERP at the basic cycle length beyond the associated conduction delay that leads to reentry.  (+info)

Giant negative T waves during interferon therapy in a patient with chronic hepatitis C. (7/58)

Interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) has been widely used for treatment of chronic hepatitis C in Japan. In general, cardiovascular adverse reactions are rare in association with IFN-alpha therapy. Here, a 64-year-old man with chronic active hepatitis C complained of fatigue, palpitation and depression, and developed atrial fibrillation with prominent negative T waves during IFN-alpha therapy. Echocardiogram showed septal and apical hypertrophy. Three days after discontinuation of IFN-alpha, subjective symptoms and atrial fibrillation subsided. It is unclear whether or not IFN-alpha induced the giant negative T waves with apical hypertrophy. We might observe the developing course of hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related myocardial hypertrophy by chance. Cardiovascular toxicity should be carefully monitored during IFN-alpha therapy even in patients with minor cardiac disease, such as premature ventricular contracture (PVC) and mild hypertension.  (+info)

Chronic atrial fibrillation in patients with rheumatic heart disease: mapping and radiofrequency ablation of flutter circuits seen at initiation after cardioversion. (8/58)

BACKGROUND: There is little information concerning mapping and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of arrhythmias seen during reinduction of atrial fibrillation (AF) after pharmacological and/or electrical cardioversion in patients with chronic AF and rheumatic heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Seventeen patients with rheumatic heart disease and symptomatic chronic AF underwent multisite atrial mapping during reinduction of AF after cardioversion. An organized atrial arrhythmia of varying duration was seen to precede the AF in all patients. The earliest atrial activity during this organized rhythm was near the coronary sinus ostium (CS OS) in 14 patients and along the left side of the interatrial septum (IAS) in 3 patients. RFA was performed in 16 patients (14 near the CS OS and 2 along the IAS). Postablation AF was inducible in 1 patient in whom RFA was preformed near the CS OS and in both patients when it was performed along the IAS. At a follow-up of 6 to 56 weeks (mean, 32 weeks), 10 of the 13 patients who had successful ablation were in sinus rhythm. All patients in whom AF was reinducible immediately after RFA continue to be in AF. CONCLUSIONS: Induced AF in patients with rheumatic heart disease begins as a rapid organized arrhythmia with earliest atrial activity near the CS OS in most patients. RFA targeting the region of the CS OS is successful in suppressing the arrhythmia immediately in most of the patients and in most on follow-up.  (+info)

N2 - Purpose: The clinical significance of post-procedural atrial premature beats immediately after catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) has not been clearly determined. We hypothesized that the provocation of immediate recurrence of atrial premature beats (IRAPB) and additional ablation improves the clinical outcome of AF ablation. Materials and Methods: We enrolled 200 patients with AF (76.5% males; 57.4±11.1 years old; 64.3% paroxysmal AF) who underwent catheter ablation. Post-procedure IRAPB was defined as frequent atrial premature beats (≥6/min) under isoproterenol infusion (5 μg/min), monitored for 10 min after internal cardioversion, and ...
Premature atrial contractions (PACs), also known as atrial premature complexes (APC) or atrial premature beats (APB), are a common cardiac dysrhythmia characterized by premature heartbeats originating in the atria. While the sinoatrial node typically regulates the heartbeat during normal sinus rhythm, PACs occur when another region of the atria depolarizes before the sinoatrial node and thus triggers a premature heartbeat.[1] The exact cause of PACs is unclear; while several predisposing conditions exist, PACs commonly occur in healthy young and elderly people. Elderly people that get PACs usually dont need any further attention besides follow ups due to unclear evidence.[2][3] PACs are often completely asymptomatic and may be noted only with Holter monitoring, but occasionally they can be perceived as a skipped beat or a jolt in the chest. In most cases, no treatment other than reassurance is needed for PACs, although medications such as beta blockers can reduce the frequency of symptomatic ...

After any PVC there is a pause that can lead to the development of bigeminy. A PVC wavefront often encounters a refractory AV node that does not conduct the wavefront retrograde. Thus the atrium is not depolarized and the sinus node is not reset. Since the sinus p wave to PVC interval is less than the normal P-P interval, the interval between the PVC and the next p wave is prolonged to equal the normal time elapsed during two P-P intervals. This is called a "compensatory" pause. The pause after the PVC leads to a longer recovery time, which is associated with a higher likelihood of myocardium being in different stages of repolarization. This then allows for re-entrant circuits and sets up the ventricle for another PVC after the next sinus beat.[2] The constant interval between the sinus beat and PVC suggests a reentrant etiology rather than spontaneous automaticity of the ventricle.[3] Atrial premature complexes (APCs) do not have a compensatory pause since they reset the sinus node but atrial ...
Background-Premature atrial contractions (PACs) are independent predictors of atrial fibrillation, stroke and death. However, little is known about PAC frequency in the general population and its association with other cardiovascular risk factors. Methods and Results-We performed a cross-sectional analysis among participants of the population-based Swiss cohort Study on Air Pollution and Lung Diseases in Adults (SAPALDIA). 24-hour Holter electrocardiograms to assess PAC prevalence and frequency were performed in a random sample of 1742 participants aged ≥50 years. The median (interquartile range) number of PACs per hour was 0.8 (0.4-1.8), 1.1 (0.5-2.4), 1.4 (0.7-4.6), 2.3 (0.8-6.9) and 2.6 (1.2-6.5) among participants aged 50-55, 55-60, 60-65, 65-70 and 70+ years, respectively (p,0.0001). Only 18 (1.0%) participants did not have at least 1 PAC during Holter monitoring. In multivariable negative binomial regression models, PAC frequency was significantly associated with age (Risk ratio (RR) per ...

However, rather than reporting sustained racing heartbeat, they usually describe "missing" or "skipping" of the heartbeat. Some patients even feel that the heart has "stopped" while others describe a sensation of "flip-flop." This is due to the fact that the PAC comes too early (prematurely) in the cardiac cycle to have resulted in an effective pulse or heartbeat. Therefore, no heartbeat is felt until the next regularly-timed heartbeat occurs after a pause (so-called compensatory pause). Incidentally, the beat after the PAC usually occurs with stronger contraction than usual and can be associated with an urge to ...

A 65-year-old man with symptomatic atrial fibrillation refractory to medical therapy was referred for repeat pulmonary vein (PV) isolation. Clinical symptoms included paroxysmal palpitations once to twice per week with associated light-headedness and chest pain. Initial PV isolation had been performed 6 months earlier without cessation of atrial fibrillation despite combined medical therapy with oral flecainide and bisoprolol. His past medical history was significant for hypertension, and in his family history, 1 brother had experienced a stroke at the age of 57 years. Physical examination, ECG, chest radiography, and coronary angiography were normal. Holter 24-hour ECG recordings revealed occasional atrial premature beats and paroxysmal atrial tachycardia.. A magnetic resonance imaging study of the patients PVs and left atrium (LA) was performed before the repeat radiofrequency ablation. Images were acquired with a 1.5-T whole-body magnetic resonance system (Siemens Avanti, Siemens Medical ...
... , also known as cardiac dysrhythmia or irregular heartbeat, is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow.[2] A heart rate that is too fast - above 100 beats per minute in adults - is called tachycardia and a heart rate that is too slow - below 60 beats per minute - is called bradycardia.[2] Many types of arrhythmia have no symptoms.[1] When symptoms are present these may include palpitations or feeling a pause between heartbeats.[1] More seriously there may be lightheadedness, passing out, shortness of breath, or chest pain.[1] While most types of arrhythmia are not serious, some predispose a person to complications such as stroke or heart failure.[2][3] Others may result in cardiac arrest.[3]. There are four main types of arrhythmia: extra beats, supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular arrhythmias, and bradyarrhythmias.[3] Extra beats include premature atrial contractions, premature ventricular contractions, and premature junctional ...

Baby boy has a consistently irregular heartbeat (fairly common). His heart rhythm is called premature atrial contraction. Basically, his atria (the top chambers in the heart which fill with blood) are contracting early and try to dump the blood into the ventricles (the lower chambers that do the pumping to the rest of the body). There is some irritability in the conduction system of the atria and the doctor can hear a pause as the conduction resets the beat. While it is occurring regularly, it is irregular overall ...

Rhythm Disturbances. Impulses originating from outside the sinus node are abnormal and create an arrhythmia (dysrhythmia). Abnormal or ectopic impulses are described based on their site of origin (atrial, junctional, supraventricular, ventricular). They are also characterized by timing, that is, whether they occur earlier than the next expected sinus impulse (premature) or whether they occur late (escape), as a rescue mechanism. Abnormal premature impulses (complexes) may occur singly or in multiples. Groups of three or more comprise an episode of tachycardia; bouts of tachycardia may be brief (paroxysmal tachycardia) or quite prolonged (sustained tachycardia). A bigeminal pattern occurs when each normal QRS is followed by a premature complex; the origin of the premature complexes determines whether the rhythm is atrial or ventricular bigeminy.. Supraventricular (atrial, junctional) premature complexes originate above the AV node, in either the atrium or the AV junctional area (near the AV ...

Electrocardiocardiograms can be difficult to tackle and I know that this is a topic that I repeatedly visit, both for simple things like delineating PVCs (premature ventricular contractions) from PACs (premature atrial contractions) and denoting what defines a second degree type 1 versus a second degree type 2 heart block. But theres so much more than just that - theres right and left bundle branch blocks, right and left ventricular hypertrophy, ischemia, infarction, axis deviation, atrial hypertrophy, etc. While this is a very limited approach to EKGs and while there is still much to learn about them, this is a great introduction to EKGs for any student, whether you are pre-med, pre-PA, pre-NP, pre-nursing, or pre any other health profession.

The clinical manifestations of ALS appear to start at a focal body region and then spread to other regions over time.18-22 The focality of clinical onset is an important issue to discuss because there must be an onset mechanism different from progression pathology, whether or not cell to cell propagation underlies the progression of ALS. At the clinical onset, almost equal proportions of patients have bulbar region, upper limb or lower limb symptoms,19 20 with bulbar cases slightly less frequent (21-25% of all patients).18 21 22 Respiratory symptoms rarely occur first. Thus it seems that the disease can begin stochastically at any region. However, in patients with unilateral upper limb onset, a different frequency of onset between the right and left sides has been reported. Ravits et al19 reported that 34 of 100 ALS patients had onset in the upper limbs: 24 (70.6%) in the right and 10 (29.4%) in the left limb. In 53 ALS patients with unilateral upper limb onset reported by Körner et al,20 onset ...

Introduction. Neonatal tachycardia is defined as a resting heart rate (HR) of 182 beats per minute (bpm) when the baby is not crying.1,2 Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is the most common tachyarrhythmia in the neonatal period and usually presents with a HR of more than 200bpm and with a narrow QRS complex. In 80% of patients, it originates through a mechanism of retrograde conduction via an accessory pathway between the ventricle and the atrium, with an abrupt onset and termination. In 15% of patients it results from atrial ectopic beats, while 5% of cases correspond to re-entrant nodal tachycardias.3,4 Approximately half of these patients present with heart failure, with suspicion of sepsis in some cases. The tachycardia may be detected in the foetal period, most frequently between weeks 28 and 33 of gestation, possibly manifesting with hydrops.5. The key element in the management of haemodynamically unstable patients with tachycardia is electric cardioversion. However, in stable patients, ...
Objective: We compared the usefulness of tuberculin skin test (TST) and three interferon-gamma release assays (IGRAs) (QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT-2G), QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-tube (QFT-3G), T-SPOT.TB) as the supportive method of diagnosing pulmonary tuberculosis (TB).. Methods: The subjects were 70 patients who required the differentiation of pulmonary TB clinically. The final clinical diagnosis of pulmonary TB in 22 patients and non-pulmonary TB disease in 48 patients was established by clinical specimens.. Results: In 22 patients with pulmonary TB, the positive response rate was 60% on TST, 80% on QFT-2G, 85% on QFT-3G and 95% on T-SPOT.TB. In 48 patients with non-pulmonary TB disease, the positive response rate was 47% on TST, 9% on QFT-2G, 9% on QFT-3G, 13% on T-SPOT.TB. Indeterminate results on three IGRAs were recognized in one patient each on QFT-2G and QFT-3G among patients with pulmonary TB in three patients on QFT-2G and two patients on QFT-3G among patients with non-pulmonary TB disease. ...
Heart block, or atrioventricular (AV) block, is either complete or incomplete. The term third-degree AV block, or complete heart block, is applied when there is no relationship between the atrial and ventricular beats and the atrial rate is faster than the ventricular. Incomplete AV block is divided into first-degree, second-degree, and advanced AV block. By definition, first-degree AV block occurs when the PR interval is 0.20 seconds and each atrial beat is followed by a ventricular complex. Second-degree AV block results in intermittent failure of atrial impulses to be conducted to the ventricles and is divided into two basic types: Type I or Wenckebach (also called Mobitz I) shows progressive lengthening of the PR interval from beat to beat until an atrial complex is blocked. Because of these periodic pauses, âœgrouped beatingâ occurs and, when present, aids in the diagnosis of Mobitz I block. It may be seen transiently in acute inferior wall myocardial infarction. Type II AV block ...
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe and fatal muscle wasting disease characterized by a high mutation rate in the gene that encodes the membrane-associated protein dystrophin that results in absence of expressed protein. Although the primary genetic defect for DMD is known, the mechanisms that initiate the onset of DMD are not currently understood. This study tested the hypothesis that pathophysiological processes involved in DMD could be identified by the global expression of mRNA in maturing dystrophin- and utrophin-deficient mouse (mdx:utrn-/-) muscles. Two potential dystrophic onset mechanisms targeted for analysis were (1) disrupted expression of calcium handling proteins; and, (2) increased expression of immune response markers. An mRNA expression profile was developed following isolation of total RNA from control and mdx:utrn-/- triceps surae (TS) muscles at ages 9-10 and 20-21 days using Affymetrix® Mu74Av2 GeneChips®. Compared to control, the mRNA expression profile in ...
ABSTRACT: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of senile dementia worldwide. AD is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the loss of memory and language skill, collapse of the cognitive function, and distortion of social behavior. As of today, the onset mechanisms of AD and cure are unknown; however, three hallmarks are commonly encountered: extra and intracellular accumulation of amyloid beta (Abeta) peptide plaques, formation of intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, and inevitable neuronal death. Hypothetically, a possible scenario provoking or involved in the onset of AD is a cascade effect that starts with an imbalance in the production and clearance of Abeta peptide that consequently leads to its accumulation, formation of tau protein tangles and neuronal death. This work studied and characterized the mechanisms governing Abeta peptide aggregation and the effects of using anti-Abeta monoclonal antibodies to modify this process. These mechanisms play an important ...

99mTcMAA nuclear medicine scintigraphy scans may conclusively document the presence of right-to-left shunt. These scans employ a radioactive tracer attached to albumin particles, which range in size from 10-40 microns in diameter. Normally, particles of this size, when injected intravenously, embolize the precapillary pulmonary arterioles and do not pass into the systemic circulation. However, in patients with HPS, the 99mTc-MAA particles may pass directly through the dilated vessels to embolize systemic organs, such as the brain, spleen, or kidney. Such systemic tracer embolization is characteristic of right-to-left shunting, but can be seen with cardiac or extracardiac shunts. Therefore, exclusion of non-pulmonary causes of right-to-left shunting is required to firmly establish the diagnosis of HPS. ...

We describe a case of an otherwise healthy 50-year-old man with frequent attacks of heart palpitations. During electrophysiological study two episodes of atrial fibrillation (AF) were induced. In both cases AF was preceded by a few seconds of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Ablation of atrioventricular node slow pathway successfully eliminated both tachyarrhythmias during 6 months follow-up. Since during AVNRT a few short coupled atrial ectopic beats appeared, we hypothesized that AVNRT did not trigger AF directly but by inducing ectopic beats form a pulmonary vein or an atrial focus that became a direct trigger of AF ...
Aberrant ventricular conduction was induced in 44 subjects by introduction of atrial premature beats through a transvenous catheter-electrode. Multiple patterns of aberrant ventricular conduction were obtained in 32 patients and, in the whole group, 116 different configurations were recorded. Of these, 104 showed a classical pattern of mono- or biventricular conduction disturbance. The pattern frequencies were as follows: right bundle-branch block, 28; left anterior hemiblock combined with right bundle-branch block, 21; left anterior hemiblock, 17; left posterior hemiblock combined with right bundle-branch block, 12; left posterior hemiblock, 10; complete left bundle-branch block, 10; and incomplete left bundle-branch block, 6. The remaining 12 configurations could not be classified into the usual categories of intraventricular blocks. In 7 of them, the alterations only consisted of trivial modifications of the QRS contour. In the other 5 instances, aberrant conduction manifested itself by a ...

Cardiac complications, such as arrhythmia, myocardial ischemia, and infarction, during bronchoscopy are uncommon, and generally occur in elderly patients with comorbidities such as preexisting coronary artery disease, hypertension, or severe impairment of pulmonary function and resting hypoxemia.3,4 Various cardiac arrhythmias, ranging from atrial and ventricular premature complexes or supraventricular tachycardias to ventricular tachycardias, bradyarrhythmias, and even cardiac arrest, have been reported during bronchoscopy.2,4-7 Myocardial ischemia and acute ST elevation myocardial infarction following bronchoscopy, although uncommon, have also been reported.1,8,9. Cardiac ischemia and arrhythmias, although rare, are generally due to elevated circulating catecholamines, precipitation of true myocardial ischemia, or following administration of anesthetic drugs, especially in patients with underlying hypoxemia and other comorbidities..

Identifying the underlying etiology of the first episode of pulmonary edema can sometimes be challenging as all causes of pulmonary edema share the same clinical features to some extent. The first step in approaching pulmonary edema is to differentiate cardiac etiologies from non-cardiac etiologies. Clinical features that point toward cardiogenic pulmonary edema include history of acute coronary syndrome or congestive heart failure and the finding of S3, JVD, or peripheral pitting edema on physical examination. Other features of cardiogenic pulmonary edema include elevated cardiac enzymes and enlarged cardiac silhouette or the presence of Kerley B lines in CXR (3). In contrast, non-cardiac etiologies of pulmonary edema should be suspected in patients with ongoing pulmonary or non-pulmonary infection and sleep apnea syndrome (SAS), those at the risk of aspiration pneumonia or inhalation injury, and after multiple blood transfusions (3). The gold standard test to differentiate cardiogenic ...
Myocarditis. Myocarditis is a poorly defined condition characterised by reduced myocardial contractility and arrhythmias. Clinical signs include exercise intolerance, dysand sometimes episodic collapse or CHF. Myocarditis may follow a recent history of fever, anorexia, depression and respiratory disease that apparently responded to treatment. Pre- and post-exercise echocardiography, resting, 24-hour and exercise ECGs, and possibly isoenzyme assays are worthwhile invesprocedures in animals with poor exercise tolerance following a bout of respiratory disease. However, it is important that all body systems are examined thoroughly. Long-term respiratory dysfunction resulting in poor gaseous exchange is a much more common sequel to respiratory disease and may result in similar clinical signs.. Myocardial fibrosis. Myocardial fibrosis is thought to caused by ischaemia resulting from emboli, such as fibrin from vascular intima damaged by strongyles. These areas could act as ectopic foci and can be ...

Accessory spleen or splenule is a common congenital anomaly in which an ectopic focus of normal splenic tissue is found separate from the main body of the spleen. They occur in approximately 10% of the population1,2. In the majority of cases these are located at or near the splenic hilum. The pancreatic tail is also a common location for these lesions occurring in approximately 16% or 61 of 364 in a large autopsy series by Halpert and Gyorkey1 and 21.8% on large CT series3. Splenules may range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters however they are most typically less than 2cm1,3. They are usually single but may be multiple. The majority are asymptomatic incidental findings usually on CT or ultrasound of the abdomen. Rarely, they may become symptomatic because of rupture, hemorrhage, torsion or cyst formation3. The primary clinical significance of these lesions resides in their mimicry of neoplasm.. Differentiation between splenule or splenic lobulation and neoplasm may be ...

The displayed summary includes at least one prognostic indicator obtained from the data associated with the episode. Examples of prognostic indicators include, among other things, ectopic beats, runs of ectopic beats, rate of decrease of heart rate during a post-exercise recovery portion of the episode, a maximum attained heart rate for comparison to a maximum age-predicted heart rate, as well as other prognostic indicators.
The present invention is direction toward a detection architecture for use in implantable cardiac rhythm devices. The detection architecture of the present invention provides methods and devices for discriminating between arrhythmais. Moreover, by exploiting the enhanced specificity in the origin of the identified arrhythmia, the detection architecture can better discriminate between rhythms appropriate for device therapy and those that are not.
Several cross-sectional and longitudinal studies have described a decline in food intake with aging in healthy elderly subjects 80-83 . This physiological decrease in food intake with age was defined as anorexia 80-83 . In the NHANES III an average decline in energy intake of about 1000 kcal day (men) and 500 kcal day (women) between the age of 20 and 75 years was described 84 . Aging was also associated with a decline in total energy expenditure that is accounted not only by a decline in.... ...

BACKGROUND: Electrical cardioversion in patients with various types of supraventricular tachyarrhythmia (SVT) may induce serum cardiac markers elevation. Only a few studies have evaluated the impact of the type of shock waveform on electrical myocard
What are Carotid, Aorta, Arterial and Venous Doppler Exams? Carotid, Aorta, Arterial and Venous Doppler exams are all simple, noninvasive tests that use high-frequency sound waves (Ultrasound) and computer-generated graphs to measure the amount and direction of blood flow through your arteries and veins real-time, in a way that simply cannot be obtained using other imaging techniques.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of E2609 when administered as single doses to healthy adult volunteers and healthy elderly subjects. The study will consist of 2 parts:(1) a single dose in healthy adult volunteers, at doses up to 800 mg or the maximum dose that can be tolerated, (2) a single dose of 50 mg in healthy elderly volunteers ...
