Adenosine triphosphate-induced atrial fibrillation: the clinical significance and relevance to spontaneous atrial fibrillation.

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) frequently triggers atrial fibrillation (AF), but the clinical significance of this phenomenon is unknown. The purpose of...

Relevance of Monitoring Atrial Fibrillation in Clinical Practice.
The monitoring of atrial fibrillation (AF) is performed using a variety of tools, ranging from the conventional Holter electrocardiogram to modern implantable loop recording with remote data exchange. The main clinical areas in AF where monitoring is

Atrial Remodeling And Atrial Fibrillation: Mechanistic Interactions And Clinical Implications.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice. The prevalence of AF increases dramatically with age and is seen in as high as 9% of individuals by the age of 80 years. In high-risk patients, the thromboembolic stroke ris

Clinical Significance of Additional Ablation of Atrial Premature Beats after Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation.
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 bea

Atrial Fibrillation: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, and Clinical Outcomes.
The past 3 decades have been characterized by an exponential growth in knowledge and advances in the clinical treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). It is now known that AF genesis requires a vulnerable atrial substrate and that the formation and com

Atrial fibrillation.
Essential facts Atrial fibrillation (AF) causes an abnormal, sometimes fast pulse, and is the most common heart rhythm disturbance. It occurs when electrical impulses controlling the heart's natural rhythm lose co-ordination. People with AF have a fo

Atrial fibrillation and dementia.
Emerging evidence has shown a consistent association between AF and risk of dementia, including Alzheimer׳s disease. It is likely that a constellation of various mechanisms combine to cause dementia in AF patients. Both AF and dementia share multiple

Atrial fibrillation and microRNAs.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia, especially in the elderly, and has a significant genetic component. Recently, several independent investigators have demonstrated a functional role for small non-coding RNAs (microRNAs
