Perspectives on novel therapeutic strategies for right heart failure in pulmonary arterial hypertension: lessons from the left heart

Right heart function is the main determinant of prognosis in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). At present, no treatments are currently available that directly target the right ventricle, as we will demonstrate in this article. Meta-analysis of clinical trials in PAH revealed that current PAH medication seems to have limited cardiac-specific effects when analysed by the pump...

Magnetic resonance imaging and devices: a mesmerising combination

C. P. Allaart C. C. de Cock - Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the fastest growing standard of care in diagnostic imaging. Because of its unique properties such as noninvasive accurate

Silent atrial fibrillation in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator and coronary artery disease (INDICO AF) trial: study rationale and design

BackgroundTimely detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) patients is clinically important for prevention of AF-related complications and inappropriate shocks. Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and a dual or triple chamber ICD show a high incidence of device-detected AF. Whether CAD patients with a single chamber ICD carry a...

A mobile one-lead ECG device incorporated in a symptom-driven remote arrhythmia monitoring program. The first 5,982 Hartwacht ECGs

BackgroundIn recent years many mobile devices able to record health-related data in ambulatory patients have emerged. However, well-organised programs to incorporate these devices are sparse. Hartwacht Arrhythmia (HA) is such a program, focusing on remote arrhythmia detection using the AliveCor Kardia Mobile (KM) and its algorithm.ObjectivesThe aim of this study was to assess the...
