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

Heart murmurs and arrhythmias are common in horses. Assessment of their clinical relevance concerning health, performance, safety and longevity of sports horses is of highest importance. A comprehensive cardiovascular examination is crucial for diagnosis and assessment of the severity of disease....

Abstract

Reasons for performing the study: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most important dysrhythmia affecting performance in horses and has been associated with incoordination, collapse and sudden death. Limited information is available on ventricular response during exercise in horses with lone AF....

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

A 20-year-old warmblood breeding stallion presented to a University practice for semen collection and evaluation was incidentally diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AF). Electrocardiogram recordings during breeding revealed inappropriately rapid tachycardia and occasional ventricular premature...

Abstract

Background: Only few pharmacologic compounds have been validated for treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) in horses. Studies investigating the utility and safety of flecainide to treat AF in horses have produced conflicting results, and the antiarrhythmic mechanisms of flecainide are not fully...

Abstract

The evaluation of performance capacity with exercise test is of particular importance in horses with mild to moderate valvular regurgitations as a possible exercise intolerance, and a detrimental cardiac function is often first detected after exercise. Aim of the study was the comparison of...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Cardiac arrhythmias are a recognised but poorly characterised problem in the Standardbred racehorse. Frequency data could aid the development of cardiac arrhythmia screening programmes. Objectives: To characterise the occurrence of cardiac arrhythmias in Standardbreds...

Abstract

Objective: The aim of the study was to extend the range of the electrocardiographic examination in horses, evaluating the practicability of special electrocardiographic techniques (exercise- and Holter-ECG) and comparing these with more common techniques (resting-ECG) in equine medicine.
