A digital screening for atrial fibrillation successfully monitored more than 60,000 participants from the general population in Belgium. The study screened participants using only a smartphone and demonstrates the feasibility of collecting data in a scalable, controlled and cost-effective way. The results of the trial produced a relevant yield of new atrial fibrillation (AF) patients without over-consuming healthcare resources.
The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) in partnership with the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS), and the Latin American Heart Rhythm Society (LAHRS) issued an international consensus statement reflecting a worldwide updated review of the indications, techniques, and outcomes of catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias (VAs).
The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) released a first-of-its-kind consensus statement with guidance on the evaluation and management of arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) including findings on genetics and disease mechanisms.
A randomized clinical trial effectively uses nerve stimulation through an ear clip to reduce atrial fibrillation (AF) burden and showcases an emerging noninvasive treatment option for patients. The trial is the first to examine the effect of transcutaneous electrical vagus nerve stimulation on suppressing AF.
Results from a new survey are the first to report a large discrepancy in patient’s knowledge of their cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED). The study reviewed patients’ overall knowledge of data from their devices as well as their perceptions on what is most important.
Results from new research show that passengers with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), such as pacemakers or defibrillators, can safely travel through airport security checkpoints.
A new study shows that overweight patients who have bariatric surgery before undergoing ablation reduce their risk of the arrhythmia returning. This is the first study to look at the relationship between weight loss surgery and atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation.
The Heart Rhythm Society kicks off its 40th Annual Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions. With a faculty of more than 700 of the world's most notable experts in cardiac rhythm management and over 150 exhibitors, Heart Rhythm 2019 will showcase the field’s most recent achievements and innovations.
