Given the escalating importance of atrial fibrillation for surgeons, this genomics article may be of considerable interest in future.
September 22, 2019
Investigators reported, in abstract form, promising results of a single dose of radiotherapy, delivered with electorphysiologic guidance, for managing ventricular tachycardia. Seventy-eight percent of patients had a clinically important reduction in ventricular tachycardia episodes.
Prevalence of Atrial Fibrillation Before Cardiac Surgery and Factors Associated With Concomitant Ablation
July 11, 2019
An important update on the evolving landscape of surgery for atrial fibrillation.
February 2, 2018
An editorial from an influential source discussing the recent robust results of the CASTLE-AF RCT trial. It is likely that interventions for atrial fibrillation will be boosted by these results, in terms of insurance, industry, and clinical guideline support.
