Cardiome has three late stage clinical drug programs focused on atrial arrhythmias
, congestive heart failure, and hyperuricemia (gout).
That in term would again predict why CAE patients are more prone to ventricular arrhythmia and atrial arrhythmia
The electrocardiographic predictors of atrial arrhythmias
, moreover, tend to worsen early after device implantation despite a marked volumetric unloading, possibly owing to a 'foreign body' effect of the occluding device.
In 2005, the prevalence of atrial arrhythmia
was 15% in the overall group.
is a product-focused cardiovascular drug development company with two late-stage clinical drug programs focused on atrial arrhythmia
(intravenous and oral dosing), a Phase 1 program for GED-aPC, an engineered analog of recombinant human activated Protein C, and a pre-clinical program directed at improving cardiovascular function.
Roy reported on 336 patients with atrial fibrillation of 3 hours to 45 days duration who were randomized 2:1 to RSD1235 or placebo in the double-blind Atrial arrhythmia
Conversion Trial 1 (ACT 1).
reported that treatment with omega-3 fatty acids reduced the burden of paroxysmal atrial arrhythmia
by 67% in a group of pacemaker patients who were seriously affected by this rhythm disorder.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Many patients who have atrial fibrillation along with a low left ventricular ejection fraction in the absence of coronary disease appear to have an unrecognized atrial fibrillation-induced cardiomyopathy that's reversible upon catheter ablation of the atrial arrhythmia
ICE performs several key functions during atrial arrhythmia
Further, new analyses presented today demonstrate that 63% of the ablation patients in this study remained free of any observed atrial arrhythmia
during the evaluation period, not just symptomatic AFib recurrence, vs.
The Atrial arrhythmia
Conversion Trial or ACT II was a randomized, double-bind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multinational, multicenter study evaluating the efficacy and safety of vernakalant among patients who experienced AF or atrial flutter within 24 hours to 7 days after cardiac surgery.
The adjusted risk of short-term recurrence of the atrial arrhythmia
was reduced by 77% with amiodarone pretreatment.
Approximately 30% of these patients have an episode of atrial arrhythmia
following their surgery.
He presented a retrospective study involving 187 patients with no history of atrial arrhythmia
who underwent cardiac surgery after having a preoperative B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) measurement.
Atrial flutter, a common atrial arrhythmia
estimated to represent 25% of the over 400,000 ablation procedures performed worldwide each year, is routinely treated with 8mm catheters.
