Role of Stress Kinase JNK in Binge Alcohol-Evoked Atrial Arrhythmia.

J Am Coll Cardiol 2018 Apr;71(13):1459-1470

Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois; Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology, Loyola University Chicago, Maywood, Illinois. Electronic address:

Background: Excessive binge alcohol drinking has acute cardiac arrhythmogenic effects, including promotion of atrial fibrillation (AF), which underlies "Holiday Heart Syndrome." The mechanism that couples binge alcohol abuse with AF susceptibility remains unclear. We previously reported stress-activated c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling contributes to AF development.

Acute Abdominal Aorta Thrombosis and Ischemic Rhabdomyolysis Secondary to Severe Alcohol Intoxication.

Cureus 2016 Dec 1;8(12):e905. Epub 2016 Dec 1.

Department of Nephrology, Shifa International Hospital, Islamabad, Pakistan.

Acute alcohol intoxication is a common cause of emergency visits worldwide. Although moderate alcohol consumption is protective against coronary artery disease, binge drinking is associated with adverse cardiovascular and neurological outcomes and may even cause sudden death. Although, few past accounts of venous thrombosis with alcohol binge drinking are available, arterial thrombosis with the condition has never been reported in the literature. Read More

[Alcohol and arrhythmias].

Herz 2016 Sep;41(6):498-502

Abt. Kardiologie & Angiologie, Department für Innere Medizin, Neurologie und Dermatologie, Universität Leipzig, Liebigstr. 20, 04103, Leipzig, Deutschland.

The effects of alcohol on induction of arrhythmias is dose-dependent, independent of preexisting cardiovascular diseases or heart failure and can affect otherwise healthy subjects. While the probability of atrial fibrillation increases with the alcohol dosage, events of sudden cardiac death are less frequent with low and moderate consumption but occur more often in heavy drinkers with alcoholic cardiomyopathy. Men are first affected at higher dosages of alcohol but women can suffer from arrhythmias at lower dosages. Read More

[Alcohol consumption in women and the elderly : When does it induce heart failure?].

Authors:
S Pankuweit

Herz 2016 Sep;41(6):494-7

Klinik für Innere Medizin - Kardiologie, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Baldingerstraße, 35043, Marburg, Deutschland.

The association between alcohol consumption and the etiology and prognosis of cardiovascular diseases has been the focus of attention and also the subject of controversial discussions for many years. This is particularly true for heart failure, which can be induced by coronary artery disease (CAD), arterial hypertension, atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and cardiomyopathies. Acute effects of high doses of alcohol can lead to impairment of the cardiac contraction strength with rhythm disturbances (holiday heart syndrome), transient ischemic attacks and in rare cases to sudden cardiac death.

A Heart too Drunk to Drive; AV Block following Acute Alcohol Intoxication.

Chin J Physiol 2016 02;59(1):1-8

Department of Medical Physiology, Division of Heart & Lungs, University Medical Center Utrecht, Yalelaan 50, 3584 CM Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Acute excessive alcohol consumption is associated with heart rhythm disorders like atrial fibrillation but also premature ventricular contractions, collectively known as the "holiday heart syndrome". More rarely but clinically significant are reports of atrioventricular (AV) conduction disturbances in binge drinkers with no underlying heart disease or chronic alcohol consumption. To obtain better insights into common denominators and the potential underlying mechanisms we collected and compared individual case reports of AV block following acute alcohol intoxication in otherwise healthy people.

Holiday heart syndrome revisited after 34 years.

Arq Bras Cardiol 2013 Aug;101(2):183-9

The cardiovascular effects of alcohol are well known. However, most research has focused on the beneficial effects (the "French paradox") of moderate consumption or the harmful consequences, such as dilated cardiomyopathy, associated with heavy consumption over an extended period. An association between the ingestion of acute alcohol and onset of cardiac arrhythmias was first reported in the early 70's. Read More

The Estimated Risk of Atrial Fibrillation Related to Alcohol Consumption.

J Atr Fibrillation 2012 Jun-Jul;5(1):424. Epub 2012 Jun 15.

Division of General Medicine and Primary Care, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA, USA.

The risk of acute heavy alcohol intake on the development of atrial fibrillation (AF), aka ?holiday heart syndrome?, has been well-described. However, whether chronic alcohol intake is also associated with increased risk of AF, or might even be protective as has been observed with other cardiac conditions, is more uncertain. A number of studies, from basic science to large cohort studies have been performed to analyze the association between alcohol and AF. Read More

Acute altitude induced hypoxia in a child with Down's syndrome following postoperative repair of complete atrioventricular septal defect.

BMJ Case Rep 2011 Apr 13;2011. Epub 2011 Apr 13.

Northern Deanery, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK.

The authors report the case of a 4-year-old male child with a background of Down's syndrome (Trisomy 21) and a definitive repair of a balanced complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD) at 3 months of age who experienced acute pulmonary oedema at high altitude (2000 m) while on holiday with his parents. The authors discuss and review the literature on the effect of altitude on children with Down's syndrome and postoperative CAVSD repair. The authors propose that further research is needed into this area in this specific group of patients, so advice can be given to families prior to flying or travelling. Read More

Alcohol-induced electrical remodeling: effects of sustained short-term ethanol infusion on ion currents in rabbit atrium.

Alcohol Clin Exp Res 2009 Oct 1;33(10):1697-703. Epub 2009 Jul 1.

Department of Cardiology, University of Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany.

Background: In some patients, above-average alcohol consumption before occurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in terms of a "holiday heart syndrome" (HHS) can be determined. There is evidence that long before development of apparent alcohol-induced cardiomyopathy, above-average alcohol consumption generates an arrhythmogenic substrate which abets the onset of AF. Changes of atrial current densities in terms of an electrical remodeling after sustained short-term ethanol infusion in rabbits as a potential part of HHS pathophysiology were examined in this study.

Patients with acute alcohol intoxication often present with pathological electrocardiographic (ECG) changes. The changes are more frequent and prognostically more significant in chronic alcoholics, in patients with ischaemic heart disease (IHD), in alcohol cardiomyopathy or another organic heart disease, but they can also occur in young and healthy individuals. The typical ECG changes in inebriety are disturbances of heart rate having the nature of electric impulse generation disorder or of impulse conduction pathology. Read More

Antiarrhythmic drugs in patients with recurrent atrial fibrillation: where are we?

Ital Heart J 2005 Mar;6(3):169-74

Division of Cardiology and Arrhythmologic Center, Civic Hospital, Cento (FE), Italy.

In patients with recurrent atrial fibrillation (AF), the hallmark of treatment has long been the use of antiarrhythmic drugs. The following strategies are available: a) any antiarrhythmic treatment; b) out-of-hospital episodic treatment ("pill-in-the-pocket" approach); c) prophylactic antiarrhythmic therapy; and d) hybrid therapy. The following patients with recurrent AF should not undergo any antiarrhythmic therapy: after the first AF episode; patients with rare, hemodynamically well-tolerated and short-lasting (a few hours) AF episodes; patients with perioperative AF, without history of recurrent AF; patients with AF during acute myocardial infarction or other acute diseases, without history of recurrent AF; and "holiday heart" syndrome.

We describe the case of a patient who, after a binge, had an episode of ventricular fibrillation (holiday heart syndrome) and was successfully resuscitated. In the electrophysiological study, we found dual atrioventricular nodal pathways, an atrioventricular effective refractory period of 210 ms, and an inducible atrial fibrillation with a ventricular response of 210 bpm that produced hemodynamic collapse. Atrioventricular nodal modification by radiofrequency ablation was successfully performed. Read More

Zentrum für Innere Medizin, Abteilung Kardiologie, Philipps-Universität Marburg.

The association between alcohol use and rhythm disturbances, particularly supraventricular tachyarrhythmias in apparently healthy people is called "holiday heart syndrome". The syndrome was first described in persons with heavy alcohol consumption, who typically presented at weekends or after holidays, but it may also occur in patients who usually drink little or no alcohol. The most common rhythm disorder is atrial fibrillation, which usually converts to normal sinus rhythm within 24 hours. Read More

Chronic atrial fibrillation is a very common arrhythmia affecting 2 to 4% of the population older than 60 years of age. Atrial fibrillation may cause disabling symptoms and serious adverse effects, such as impairment of cardiac function or thromboembolic events. It is also associated with an increased risk of death.

It is widely believed but has never been proved that idiopathic supraventricular tachyarrhythmias beginning during or after weekends or winter holidays are frequently alcohol-related ("holiday heart" syndrome). The time of arrhythmia onset was therefore studied in relation to self-reported ethanol consumption and results of a screening test for alcoholism (CAGE questionnaire) in 289 patients aged less than 65 years admitted for supraventricular tachyarrhythmias. There were 102 patients having an etiologically idiopathic arrhythmia with a known time of onset. Read More

[Holiday heart syndrome: spontaneous reversibility of the electrocardiographic and echocardiographic alterations].

Cardiologia 1989 Aug;34(8):721-4

The holiday heart syndrome is characterized by symptomatic arrhythmias more often supraventricular, elicited by alcohol ingestion, typically during the week-end period. After admission, electrocardiographic changes, which disappear in few days, are often reported. A case of an alcoholic with syncopal episodes related to alcohol ingestion is described. Read More

Alcohol-related acute atrial fibrillation. A case-control study and review of 40 patients.

Arch Intern Med 1985 May;145(5):830-3

Heavy alcohol use has been suspected to cause acute atrial fibrillation, but an association between these two common problems has never been demonstrated. We retrospectively reviewed 64 cases with idiopathic acute atrial fibrillation and 64 age- and sex-matched controls, randomly selected from among general medical admissions. Sixty-two percent of cases and 33% of controls had documentation as heavy users of alcohol. Read More

The "holiday heart" syndrome.

Heart Lung 1984 Jan;13(1):89-92

The potential arrhythmogenic effects of alcohol have recently been studied electrophysiologically. These experiments have confirmed clinical observations that alcohol in modest doses has the potential of producing atrial or ventricular arrhythmias. Although many of the patients have underlying heart disease, there are reports of patients with no evident heart disease where acute alcohol injestion has caused arrhythmias. Read More
