#Twittertopicweek on implantation techniques and peri-operative management

Day 2⃣

General considerations: Management in febrile patients scheduled for #PPM implant.



Pts with clinical signs of active infection±fever 🌡️should NOT undergo a implant until they have been afebrile for 24h
Febrile 🥵 pts who have been started on antibiotics should be afebrile for 24 h after termination of antibiotic treatment before implant


In a multicentre, prospective study with 6319 patients, fever within 24 h of implantation (OR 5.83) and temporary pacing before implantation (OR 2.46) were positively correlated with the occurrence of device infection.

#EHRAtopicweek on “Esophageal injuries in #AF ablation”

I am very proud to share with you the 3rd episode of 🎙 "EHRA Cardio Talk - Keep the rhythm" The #EHRA_ESC podcast: Oesophagal injuries related to AF ablation 🎙with @EPDeneke & @DavidDuncker

#EHRA_Ecomm @escardio #EPeeps

Some publications from @EPDeneke about Esophageal injuries.
1⃣ a must read publication from 2017: bit.ly/3D1GGto

Esophagal perforation delayed diagnosis is associated w/ development of atrial-esophageal fistula & ⬆️mortality.

In this study, @EPDeneke assessed the S-Cath temperature probe consisting of 12 fast-response temp sensors on a S-shaped probe providing an ⬆️coverage of the esophagus. Even if ablation time was ⬇️ at post. wall, esophagal lesions were ↔️

#EHRA_ESC tweetorial on anticoagulation & stroke prevention.

#EPeeps, after having done an overview #tweetorial on the new @escardio #AFib guidelines 2020 👉bit.ly/2ITAbCq, I will go more in depth into several topics of these guidelines in the next weeks

I think that this figure which summarizes OAC in #AFib is very didactic and practical. Please note that NOACS are generally recommended as first line therapy for OAC.

#EPeeps, #EHRA_ESC is proud to have the new 2020 @escardio #AFib guidelines

Here’s my personal #tweetorial about the news and the highlights of these 126 pages.

I congratulate @GerdHindricks, @tanjapotpara1 & whole team for this tremendous work. #ESCGuidelines #EHRA_Ecomm
Find the new @escardio #Afib guideline document 2020 here ▶️bit.ly/2HD5RKZ.

First, let’s take a look at the "what’s new" part.
ECG documentation is required to establish the diagnosis of #AFib (either standard 12-lead ECG recording or single-lead ECG tracing of at least 30 s).
I think that this is important because now we can explicitly diagnose AF with single-lead ECGs. #wEHRAbles
