The updated guidance also introduces flexibility in use of risk scores to estimate thromboembolic risk and strengthens endorsements for catheter ablation and left atrial appendage occlusion devices.
A new era in catheter ablation therapy for cardiac arrhythmias appears to be underway with the emergence of irreversible electroporation, also known as pulsed-field ablation.
Findings in a large patient sample implicate sleep-related hypoxia as an important biological pathway of atrial fibrillation and a clinically relevant driver of risk for the condition.
For the first time, a prospective randomized trial has confirmed that TAVR and left atrial appendage occlusion can be performed at the same time without an increased risk of complications.

Among five sleep symptom clusters, the combination of hypoxia and sleepiness is associated with the highest risk of incident atrial fibrillation, finds a large retrospective study.
A new study found older adults with CLL have increased risk of adverse events such as atrial fibrillation.
A broad research effort involving network-medicine methodologies and pharmacoepidemiologic analysis has pinpointed the diabetes medication metformin as a leading antiarrhythmic candidate drug.
In-hospital mortality following LAAC was no higher in patients aged 80 or older than in their younger counterparts, a large database analysis shows. We share insights on LAAC in this population from the Cleveland Clinic experience.
A multifront Cleveland Clinic research project aims to use $14 million in NIH funding to identify mechanisms and targets underlying AF that may lead to personalized therapies.
The presence of one of four common cancers raised the risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation patients to the same degree as several variables already in the prediction model, a large analysis finds.
