Intra-Atrial Dyssynchrony Using Cardiac Magnetic Resonance to Quantify Tissue Remodeling in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation.

Arq Bras Cardiol 2019 Apr 15;112(4):441-450. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore - USA.

Background: Recent studies suggest that left atrial (LA) late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) can quantify the underlying tissue remodeling that harbors atrial fibrillation (AF). However, quantification of LA-LGE requires labor-intensive magnetic resonance imaging acquisition and postprocessing at experienced centers. LA intra-atrial dyssynchrony assessment is an emerging imaging technique that predicts AF recurrence after catheter ablation. Read More

Disparities In The Use Of Drug-eluting Stents For Diabetic Patients With ST-elevation Acute Myocardial Infarction Assisted In the Public versus Private Network - VICTIM Register.

Arq Bras Cardiol 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Núcleo de Pós-graduação em Ciências da Saúde da Universidade Federal de Sergipe, Aracaju, SE - Brazil.

Background: Primary angioplasty (PA) with placement of either bare metal or drug-eluting stents (DES) represents the main strategy in the treatment of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
