Large Scale Study: Outcomes for Long QT Syndrome Patients Treated at Specialty Center Are Better

Sudden cardiac death, and episodes of fainting and seizures from long QT syndrome are significantly lower than previously thought when patients are diagnosed and treated at a specialty center dedicated to the treatment of genetic heart rhythm diseases, according to Mayo Clinic research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This is one of the largest studies of long QT syndrome patients – people who have an inherited heart rhythm condition that can potentially cause fast and chaotic heartbeats – evaluated and treated at a single center to analyze these outcomes.

Quantifying Effectiveness of Treatment for Irregular Heartbeat

Final-heart-updated.gif

In a small proof-of-concept study, researchers at Johns Hopkins report a complex mathematical method to measure electrical communications within the heart can successfully predict the effectiveness of catheter ablation, the standard of care treatment for atrial fibrillation, the most common irregular heartbeat disorder. This has the potential to let physicians and patients know immediately following treatment whether it was effective, or whether they’ll need to anticipate another procedure in the future.
