    BACKGROUND: Our aim was to investigate the association of premature atrial complexes and the risk of recurrent stroke or death in patients with ischemic stroke in sinus rhythm.

    METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, we used 24-hour Holter recordings to evaluate premature atrial complexes in patients consecutively admitted with ischemic strokes. Excessive premature atrial complexes were defined as >14 premature atrial complexes per hour and 3 or more runs of premature atrial complexes ...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Runs of premature atrial complexes (PACs) are common in stroke patients and perceived to be clinically insignificant, but their prognostic significance is unclear. This study investigated the association between runs of PACs in ischemic stroke patients and the risk of recurrent ischemic strokes/transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) or death.

    METHODS: The study included consecutive patients admitted with an ischemic stroke from August 2008 to April 2011. Patients with ...

    BACKGROUND: Statins have been shown to possess favourable effects on the cardiovascular system with stabilization of the vulnerable plaque. We sought to assess the effects of early aggressive statin treatment on plaque composition in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), using serial assessment with coronary CT-angiography (CTA).

    METHODS: In a prospective randomized blinded endpoint trial patients with AMI were randomized to an intensive lipid lowering treatment receiving ...

    BACKGROUND: Attempts to achieve rhythm control using direct-current cardioversion (DCC) are common in those with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). Although often successful, AF recurs within 1 month in as many as 57% of patients. The aim of this study was to assess whether a baseline left atrial sphericity index (LASI) acquired by 2-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) could be used as a predictor of AF recurrence after successful DCC.

    HYPOTHESIS: A baselline LASI assessed ...

    In patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), the sinus rhythm (SR) can be restored by direct current cardioversion (DCC), although the recurrence of AF after successful DCC is common. We examined whether transesophageal echocardiography (TEE)-guided early DCC, compared with the conventional approach of DCC after 3 weeks of anticoagulation with dabigatran-etexilat, reduces the recurrence of AF. A total of 126 consecutive patients with persistent AF were randomly assigned to a TEE ...

    OBJECTIVES: Abnormal glucose tolerance in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with greater mortality and adverse cardiovascular effects. As statins possess a range of beneficial pleiotropic effects on the cardiovascular system, we sought to assess the cardioprotective effects of statins on left ventricular function in patients with AMI in relation to glycometabolic state.

    METHODS: In a prospective, randomized trial, 140 patients with AMI were randomized to ...
