Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common cardiac arrhythmia, is a major risk factor for stroke. Atrial fibrillation is often asymptomatic making it difficult to diagnose. Globally, stroke is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Opportunistic atrial fibrillation screening has been recommended in clinical practice within Ireland and internati...

We investigated the relationship between the newly-defined systemic immune-inflammation index and the new-onset atrial fibrillation in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. This study included 392 patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting. We divided the participants into two groups as those with and without new-onset at...

Nearly 40% of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing mitral valve surgery do not receive concomitant ablation despite societal guidelines. We assessed barriers to implementation of this evidence-based practice through a survey of cardiac surgeons in 2 statewide quality collaboratives. Adult cardiac surgeons across 2 statewide collaborati...

CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: The findings of this study provide genetic evidence supporting an association between HDPs and higher risk of coronary artery disease and stroke, which is only partially mediated by cardiometabolic factors. This supports classification of HDPs as risk factors for cardiovascular disease. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: ...

Importance Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy (HDPs) are major causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and are observationally associated with future maternal risk of cardiovascular disease. However, observational results may be subject to residual confounding and bias. Objective To investigate the association of HDPs with multiple cardiovascular d...

Background Observational studies suggest that reproductive factors are associated with cardiovascular disease, but these are liable to influence by residual confounding. This study explores the causal relevance of reproductive factors on cardiovascular disease in women using Mendelian randomization. Methods and Results Uncorrelated (r22 live births...

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained heart arrhythmia and a major preventable cause of stroke. Stroke accounts for a large amount of health and social care funding and over the coming years is likely to place an increasing cost burden on the wider UK health care system. We therefore need to understand how an opportunistic AF screen...

The Early Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation for Stroke Prevention (EAST-AFNET4) trial showed a clinical benefit of early rhythm-control therapy in patients with recently diagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF). The generalisability of the results in the general population is not known. Participants in the population-based UK Biobank were assessed for eli...

Compliance with anticoagulation treatment for atrial fibrillation is highly variable. Smartphone electrocardiograms that allow patients to have greater insight into their arrhythmia burden may improve anticoagulant compliance. Patients were enrolled if they had atrial fibrillation with a CHA2DS2-VASc score of 2 or more, were eligible for anticoagul...
