Mechanisms of Arrhythmogenicity in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Insight From Non-invasive Electrocardiographic Imaging

01 Mar 2020  |  Frontiers
Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) face high risks of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. This study investigates the electrophysiological (EP) substrate of HCM using non-invasive electrocardiographic imaging (ECGi). The findings reveal that HCM is characterized by greater activation dispersion, larger voltage, and higher voltage dispersion compared to post-myocardial infarction (MI) patients. These characteristics contribute to the risk of ventricular tachycardia (VT) and sudden cardiac death in HCM patients. The study highlights the complexity of arrhythmogenic mechanisms in HCM and suggests that the ineffectiveness of pharmacological treatments like late sodium current blockers may be due to the reentrant VT mechanism in HCM.

Leo Varadkar announced his resignation as Irish leader after a parliamentary vote failed to find a new taoiseach. Varadkar will continue as caretaker leader following his resignation.

However, both Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil have excluded forming a coalition with Sinn Fein. Varadkar's tenure was noted for his historic election as the first openly gay, youngest, and first taoiseach of ethnic minority background in Ireland.

Ireland began its official vote count following an exit poll indicating a three-way tie among Fine Gael, Sinn Féin, and Fianna Fáil, suggesting a hung parliament and complex coalition negotiations ahead.

The vote count is expected to reveal clearer margins, with potential for extended counting and fresh elections if no government is formed. Leo Varadkar's campaign highlighted economic recovery and Brexit negotiations, but pre-election polls indicated a desire for change.

Abortion: Northern Ireland law breaches human rights, high court rules

03 Oct 2019  |  CNN
The High Court in Belfast ruled that Northern Ireland's abortion laws violate UK human rights law. Sarah Ewart, who was denied an abortion in 2013 despite her unborn child's fatal condition, challenged the law. The ruling may prevent future trauma for women in similar situations. Current law only permits abortion if the woman's life or health is at risk, excluding cases of rape, incest, or fatal fetal abnormalities. However, upcoming legislation could decriminalize abortion if no government is formed by October 21. Amnesty International praised the ruling as a significant step for abortion rights.
