Afib.no has awarded Tingting Feng grant for participation at the EHRA conference 18-20 March 2018. The abstract is based on the project: Atrial Fibrillation and Lifestyle Factors in the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study (The HUNT Study).
Sustained sinus rhythm for six months after electrical cardioversion for atrial fibrillation had no impact on prothrombotic markers, network member Anja W. Horjen and co-authors conclude in an article published in Thrombosis Journal. Furthermore, successfully cardioverted patients still in sinus… Read More ›
Heart rate trajectories in the Tromsø study provide additional prognostic information regarding cardiovascular risk.
Resting heart rate is an important easily measured cardiovascular parameter and an established risk factor for cardiovascular disease and death. Based on the three Tromsø Study surveys conducted between 1986 and 2001 we demonstrated that individual changes in resting heart… Read More ›
Screening for unknown or subclinical atrial fibrillation has received increased attention lately. People at 65 years, or above, with additional risk factors, have been suggested as a possible target population for screening. Screening in this age group has been investigated… Read More ›
We are excited to announce that the first annual meeting of afib.no was a success – bringing together 48 atrial fibrillation researchers from Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands on October 19-20, 2017 at Lysebu, Oslo. Professor of cardiac arrhythmias and… Read More ›
Network members identify new genetic loci associated with the electrocardiographic P-wave and atrial conduction
Network members Ingrid E. Christophersen, Renate B. Schnabel, Michiel Rienstra, Emelia J. Benjamin and Patrick T. Ellinor and collaborators in the AFGen Consortium recently presented results from a GWAS meta-analysis on the electrocardiographic P-wave in more than 44 000 individuals,… Read More ›
In a report of the AF-SCREEN International Collaboration, several afib.no network members have co-authored a “State of the art” article on screening for atrial fibrillation in Circulation. An extensive review of relevant current evidence is provided, and future directions are… Read More ›
In an article published in Nature Genetics, network members Ingrid E. Christophersen, Michiel Rienstra, Emelia J. Benjamin and Patrick T. Ellinor and collaborators present data from large-scale genome-wide association studies, exome-wide association studies and rare variant association studies. Twelve new… Read More ›
