Recent findings on the health effects of omega-3 fatty acids and statins, and their interactions: do statins inhibit omega-3?

Early randomized controlled trials (RCTs) demonstrated the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids (n-3), whereas recent RCTs were negative. We now address the issue, focusing on the temporal changes having occurred: most patients in recent RCTs are no longer n-3 deficient and the vast majority are now treated with statins. Recent RCTs testing n-3 against arrhythmias suggest that...

Inadvertent implantable cardioverter defibrillator lead placement in the left ventricle: long-term follow-up at nine years and management by minimally-invasive surgery

We describe the case history of a 43-year-old male with type 1 Brugada syndrome. He was fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) for primary prevention nine years ago. After admission for inappropriate shocks, an abnormal position of the lead was discovered. Further investigations (chest X-ray and transesophageal echocardiography) showed that the ICD lead was...

Prospective multicenter randomized trial of fast ventricular tachycardia termination by prolonged versus conventional anti-tachyarrhythmia burst pacing in implantable cardioverter-defibrillator patients-Atp DeliVery for pAiNless ICD thErapy (ADVANCE-D) Trial results

Purpose The purpose of the trial was to quantify and compare the efficacy of two different sequences of burst anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) strategies for the termination of fast ventricular tachycardia. Methods The trial was prospective, multicenter, parallel and randomized, enrolling patients with an indication for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implantation. Results...
