Yale electrophysiologist weighs in on LOOP trial using ILRs for atrial fibrillation detection, with a surprisingly high incidence of incidentally identified bradyarrhythmias
Data supports that implantable loop recorders (ILRs), medical devices increasingly used to detect atrial fibrillation, lead to greater stroke prevention in high-risk patients with undiagnosed arrhythmias but also reveal a significant burden of bradyarrhythmias.
Data question universal restriction of vigorous exercise for people with HCM
Adults with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who engaged in vigorous exercise were at no greater risk for death, cardiac arrest or other outcomes compared with those engaging in low-to-moderate-intensity physical activity.Source: Healio
Vigorous exercise does not increase risk of serious cardiac events in people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
People with the inherited heart condition hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) who exercised vigorously did not have an increased incidence of serious cardiac events during three years of follow-up.Source: News-Medical.Net
