#ESCCongress: ENVISAGE-TAVI AF Trial

2021 28 Aug

In another Hot Line session at the ESC Congress 2021, findings from the ENVISAGE-TAVI AF showed that edoxaban is non-inferior to warfarin and its analogues for adverse clinical events in patients with atrial fibrillation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation.   The prevalence of pre-existing or new-onset atrial fibrillation after TAVI ranges...

RATE-AF Trial and Patient and Public Involvement

2021 06 Jul

The RAte control Therapy Evaluation in permanent Atrial Fibrillation (RATE-AF) trial is the first randomised clinical trial of digoxin vs beta-blockers in patients with atrial fibrillation and heart failure symptoms. It is a unique trial as it uses patient and public involvement (PPI) in trial design and management. In other words, the RATE-AF trial... Read more

Increase in Stroke Risk With Greater Alcohol Intake

2021 22 Jun

Consumption of alcohol is associated with an increased risk of incident atrial fibrillation. Even a low spectrum of alcohol consumption could be a risk factor for atrial fibrillation. Alcohol consumption has been shown to have a consistent linear dose-response relationship when it comes to risk of AF.   In a recent study, alcohol abstinence reduced... Read more

Artificial Intelligence Can Predict New Atrial Fibrillation, Stroke Risk

2021 09 Mar

A team of scientists from Geisinger and Tempus have found that artificial intelligence can predict risk of new atrial fibrillation (AF) and AF-related stroke. Their findings are published in Circulation.  Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and is associated with numerous health risks, including stroke and death. The study...
