Article
Full-text available
Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) in patients with systolic heart failure constitutes an emerging situation, particularly when occurring after cardiac surgery. Amiodarone (A) alone is generally insufficient in achieving a fast termination of AF independently from left ventricular systolic function and atrial size. Recent investigations showe...

Background: Amiodarone (AMIO) is for many years effectively used to control ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation (AF) and to convert it into sinus rhythm. However, due to its delayed onset of action, ranolazine (RAN), a new antianginal agent with atrial-selective electrophysiologic properties, has recently been attempted as add-on therapy w...
Poster
Acute ranolazine plus amiodarone achieves better and faster conversion to sinus rhythm in comparison to mono therapy (Amiodarone alone) without causing any major side effects.

A 77-year-old man was admitted in Cardiology ward at New Cross Hospital with acute heart failure symptoms. This patient had a background of aortic valve replacement with a 23 mm Epic prosthesis and previous bypass grafting. On this admission, his echocardiogram revealed an aortic valve area of 0.42 cm 2 and a mean pressure gradient of 53 mmHg. His...
Conference Paper
Patients presented in hospital with recent onset paroxysmal AF divided into two groups according to the management strategy planned. After conversion of atrial fibrillation (AF) to sinus rhythm, it is found that atrial contractility remains depressed for several days. Atrial stunning could be related to deranged atrial relaxation while increased Ca...

Background Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leucoencephalopathy (CADASIL) syndrome is a genetically inherited condition most notably affecting the central nervous system in young adults. There is limited knowledge on its association with coronary arteries, and its association with spontaneous coronary artery di...

Introduction In UK, 30,000 patients who suffer out­of­hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) have resuscitation attempted on them. Of those, only 7-8% is discharged successfully from hospital. Current NICE and ESC guidelines propose that patients with OHCA who have ST­elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) should be immediately taken to the catheter labor...
