Title: Performance of the Cox-maze IV procedure is associated with improved long-term survival in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing cardiac surgery.Release date: Jan. 2018Author:  Musharbash FN, et al.Source:  J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 2018; 155(1): 159-170.Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased mortality risk. The Cox-maze IV procedure (CM4) performed concomitantly with other cardiac procedures has been shown to be effective for restoring sinus rhythm. However, few data have been published on the late survival of patients undergoing ...

Title: Epicardial left atrial appendage AtriClip occlusion reduces the incidence of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing cardiac surgeryRelease date: 29 May. 2018Author: Etem Caliskan, et al.Source:  Europace. 2018; 20(7):e105-e114.Abstract:Aims: Left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion has emerged as an interesting alternative to oral anticoagulation (OAC) for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). We report the safety, efficacy, and durability of concomitant device-enabled epicardial LAA occlusion during open-heart surgery. In addition to long-term fol...

Title: Catheter ablation vs electrophysiologically guided thoracoscopic surgical ablation in long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation: The CASA-AF StudyRelease date: Nov. 2017Author: Haldar SK, et al.Source: Heart Rhythm. 2017; 14 (11): 1596-1603.Abstract: BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation (CA) outcomes for long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (LSPAF) remain suboptimal. Thoracoscopic surgical ablation (SA) provides an alternative approach in this difficult to treat cohort. OBJECTIVE: To compare electrophysiological (EP) guided thor...
