Adenosine of AF Ablation – The New Kid on the Block

Arrhythmia recurrence is common following ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF). A strategy of adenosine infusion to unmask dormant conduction pathways in the pulmonary veins has been shown to reduce the recurrence of atrial tachyarrhythmias following AF ablation.

Surgical & Non-Surgical Centers Equally Safe for PCI

The safety and efficacy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) at centers with and without surgical support have been the subject of much debate. Data from the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society database of 384,013 patients with a median follow-up of 3.4 centers have indicated similar mortality for both cohorts irrespective of procedural indication.

Novel Oral Anticoagulants & The Risk of Bleeding in Elderly Patients

The bleeding risk of novel oral anticoagulants relative to warfarin in patients ≥ 75 years of age is unknown. A systematic review and meta-analysis have indicated differing patterns of risk with dabigatran being associated with the highest risk for GI bleeding. There is currently insufficient data for the bleeding risk of apixaban, rivaroxaban, and edoxaban in this population.

Bystander CPR Improves Survival

Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation improves survival following an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OOHCA). A statewide educational training has indicated that bystander initiated CPR will lead to a greater likelihood of survival and favorable neurological outcomes.
