      Objectives The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of congestive heart failure (CHF) in the association between atrial fibrillation (AF) and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Background Recent studies have reported the possibility of an independent association between AF and SCD. We hypothesized that a history of CHF is a significant confounder of this Cited by:

1–4 In spite of all progress in prevention and risk stratification, 5 this remains an important health issue. The most important causes are coronary artery disease, 6 cardiomyopathies, 7 and channolopathies, 8,9 as well Author: Thomas F. Lüscher.

Ventricular fibrillation, or V-fib, is considered the most serious cardiac rhythm disturbance. Disordered electrical activity causes the heart’s lower chambers (ventricles) to quiver, or fibrillate, instead of contracting (or beating) normally.

This prohibits the heart from pumping blood, causing collapse and cardiac arrest. Ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VAs) commonly occur early in ischaemia, and remain a common cause of sudden death in acute MI. The thrombolysis and primary percutaneous coronary intervention era has resulted in the modification of the natural history of an infarct and subsequent VA.

Presence of VA could independently influence mortality in Cited by: 9. of ventricular fibrillation (VF) and sudden cardi-ac death (SCD), which were induced by UGIB in a patient undergoing PCI treatment for severe coronary artery lesions. Case report Clinical data A 72 years old man was diagnosed as unstable angina in our hospital.

The patient suffered an episode of syncope about 4 months ago, which. Sudden cardiac death is defined as unexpected nontraumatic death in clinically well or stable patients who die within 1 hour after onset of symptoms. The causative rhythm in most cases is ventricular fibrillation (see eFigure 10–56).

Characterization of sudden cardiac death events by the location of death, whether it was witnessed, and whether an arrhythmia was documented. AF indicates atrial fibrillation; PEA, pulseless electrical activity; SCD, sudden cardiac death; VF, ventricular Cited by:   Ventricular fibrillation.

Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a life-threatening, chaotic rhythm, with marked variability in cycle length and morphology up to beats min −1, with loss of cardiac underlying mechanism for the origins of VF is poorly understood, but prolonged monomorphic VT is a known risk factor, contributed by ischaemia, free radical Cited by: 3.

Sudden death is mostly cardiovascular and arrhythmic in origin, with ventricular fibrillation as the precipitating mechanism of cardiac arrest. The majority of cases present with a pathologic substrate at the level of coronary arteries, myocardium, valves, Cited by: 2.

In sports-related sudden death in the general population, a clear diagnosis is made in coronary syndrome (75 %). 14 In professional athletes, a diagnosis is usually made in up to 65 % of cases and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is considered the main cause, at least in the United States Author: Demosthenes G Katritsis, Bernard J Gersh, A John Camm.

Patients with multi-vessel coronary spasm may suffer from lethal arrhythmia, including advanced AV block, ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation, or even sudden death, and they are often.

Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine, vol Author: M. Rajskina. Some victims die from ventricular fibrillation, which can result from acute coronary ischemic thrombosis in an otherwise normal heart, whereas others die from tachyarrhythmias arising from chronic scar.

9 The relative incidence of the two mechanisms is uncertain due to (1) the lack of a consistent definition of sudden cardiac death Cited by: VF is an extremely dangerous rhythm significantly compromising cardiac output and ultimately leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD).

Arrhythmias originating from the ventricular myocardium or His-Purkinje system are grouped under ventricular arrhythmia (VA). Background The reported frequency of active coronary lesions (plaque rupture and coronary thrombosis) in sudden death due to coronary artery atherosclerosis (sudden coronary death) has varied from 80% of cases in previous hearts lacking an active coronary lesion, sudden death has usually been attributed to a healed myocardial by: Ventricular fibrillation, pulseless electrical activity (PEA) and sudden cardiac arrest.

This article will focus on ventricular fibrillation, pulseless electrical activity and sudden cardiac arrest. These arrythmias lead to death if cardiopulmonary resuscitation is not started immediately/5(3).

Ventricular fibrillation is the most common mechanism of sudden cardiac death. Most episodes of VF happen within the first 48 to 72 hours after onset of symptoms. 78,82,83 It is a manifestation of ischemia and is associated with lack of.

Ventricular tachycardia may result in ventricular fibrillation and turn into sudden death. It is found initially in about 7% of people in cardiac arrest. Ventricular tachycardia can occur due to coronary heart disease, aortic stenosis, cardiomyopathy, electrolyte problems, or a heart cations: Cardiac arrest, ventricular fibrillation.

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is defined by the death from unexpected circulatory arrest, usually due to a cardiac arrhythmia occurring within one hour of the onset of symptoms [].It is a major health problem worldwide, with a prevalence estimated in the range of to cases per year in the United States [].Event rates in Europe are similar to those in United States [].Author: Elisabete Martins.

SCA is most commonly due to ventricular tachyarrhythmias (ie, ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia).The risk of such arrhythmic events is increased in patients with coronary superimposed triggers for SCA appear to play a major role in the pathogenesis of this disorder.

varies among the following categories: The general population. Ventricular fibrillation (V-fib or VF) is when the heart quivers instead of pumping due to disorganized electrical activity in the ventricles. It is a type of cardiac arrhythmia. Ventricular fibrillation results in cardiac arrest with loss of consciousness and no pulse.

This is followed by death in the absence of stic method: Electrocardiogram. Prevention of ventricular fibrillation by dextrorotatory sotalol in a conscious canine model of sudden coronary death The antiarrhythmic and antifibrillatory actions of the dextrorotatory isomer of sotalol, administered in a multiple-dose regimen, were evaluated in conscious dogs 3.

In approximately 5–12% of these cases, there are no demonstrable cardiac or non-cardiac causes to Cited by:   Sudden cardiac death, a situation in which the heart ceases to function without warning, resulting in death within minutes, is precipitated by a devastating disruption of the heart rhythm that can occur without evidence of an acute or healed heart attack, cardiovascular researchers from the University at Buffalo have shown.

Ventricular fibrillation is the most frequent cause of sudden cardiac death. The condition's rapid, erratic heartbeats cause the heart to abruptly stop pumping blood to the body. The longer the body is deprived of blood, the greater the risk of damage to your brain and other organs.

When it occurs in the lower chambers of the heart, it is called VF. During VF, blood is not pumped from the heart. Sudden cardiac death results. succumb to sudden coronary death.

The very suddenness of, and the electro- cardiographic observations prior to or accompanying the fatal event, lead to the assumption that cardiac arrhythmias are the cause of death, either ventricular arrest or ventricular fibrillation, with the. It can lead to ventricular fibrillation, asystole, and sudden death.

Dr. Umara Ayub, faculty DrBeen, explains the causes of ventricular tachycardia. There are two principal causes of ventricular.The risk of SCD attributable to MVP is likely underestimated.

For example, in a long-term European study involving young people (ages ; 35 years), MVP was found to be the third most common cause of sudden death (incidence, 12%), behind arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (24%), and coronary artery disease (20%).
