Abstract

Background: Atrial tachycardia including focal atrial tachycardia and macroreentrant atrial tachycardia (atrial flutter), are occasionally found in horses. Diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of these arrhythmias has been inadequately described. Objectives: To describe the findings on surface...

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate horses with atrial fibrillation for hypercoagulability; plasma D-dimer concentrations, as a marker of a procoagulant state; and a relationship between coagulation profile results and duration of atrial fibrillation or presence of structural heart disease. DESIGN: Case-control ...

Abstract

In humans, electrical and contractile reverse remodelling following restoration of sinus rhythm (SR) after a prolonged period of spontaneous atrial fibrillation (AF), requires several weeks. There is little known about this phenomenon in horses. In the present study, six healthy horses were...

Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common pathological cardiac arrhythmia in the horse. While it may be an incidental finding in some horses, it can be an important cause of poor exercise tolerance in the performance horse, especially those working at extremes of cardiac function. Although...

Abstract

Background: Large animal models are important in atrial fibrillation (AF) research, as they can be used to study the pathophysiology of AF and new therapeutic approaches. Unlike other animal models, horses spontaneously develop AF and could therefore serve as a bona fide model in AF research. We...

Abstract

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) cycle length (CL) and atrial size have been used in humans to characterize electrical and structural remodeling to predict outcome of cardioversion of AF and risk for AF recurrence (rAF). Hypothesis: Atrial fibrillation cycle length can be determined in horses...

Abstract

Background: Based on its pharmacokinetic profile and electrophysiological effects in healthy horses, sotalol potentially could be used as a long-term PO antiarrhythmic drug in horses. Objectives: To evaluate the effect of sotalol on heart rate (HR), QT interval, atrial fibrillatory rate, and...

Abstract

Atrial fibrillation is the cardiac arrhythmia affecting most frequently horse performances. Treatment is advised for sport and racing horses when there is no underlying cardiac disease. As medical treatment quinidine sulphate is often used but carries risks for adverse effects. Transvenous...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Atrial fibrillation cycle length (AFCL) is an indicator of atrial electrical remodelling during atrial fibrillation (AF). Objectives: To compare AFCL measured invasively from an intra-atrial electrogram (AFCLEGM) with AFCL measured noninvasively by atrial colour tissue ...

Abstract

Background: The number of atrial premature depolarisations (APDs) is a known risk factor for atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence in humans. Objectives: To evaluate if the number of APDs over a 24-h period 5 days post cardioversion predicts AF recurrence within 1 year in horses, taking the...
