  • Digoxin: beneficial or harmful'
    • Authors: Savarese G; Lund LH.
      First page: 127
      Abstract: Heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are highly prevalent, and the combination of AF and HF is steadily increasing.1–6 Digoxin has been used in HF for 200 years. Current European Society of Cardiology (ESC) HF guidelines give digoxin a IIb B recommendation, and American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) HF guidelines a IIa B recommendation, on top of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I), angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) or angiotensin-receptor neprilysin inhibitor (ARNi), a beta-blocker, and a mineralcorticoid receptor antagonist (MRA) for reducing the risk of hospitalization in HF with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and sinus rhythm.5,7 Digoxin is also used for rate control in AF, with a IB recommendation from ESC AF guidelines for control of heart rate in AF patients regardless of left ventricular ejection fraction.4 However, whether digoxin is beneficial or harmful in HF and/or AF is still debated.

           vs. risk aversion by Zannad et al.
    • Authors: Dunder K; de Graeff P, Blind E.
      First page: 129
      Abstract: We as European regulators would like to respond to the editorial in this journal by Turner et al.1 on the article by Zannad et al.2 regarding the assessment of cardiovascular risk of new medicines intended for treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. We want to clarify that cardiovascular safety outcome trials for such new therapies are not mandatory in the EU and give some update on recent regulatory developments in this area.

           risk assessment vs. risk aversion by Zannad et al.
    • Authors: Zannad F.
      First page: 131
      Abstract: We thank Dunder et al.1 for their informative description of the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) views on the evaluation of cardiovascular safety of medicinal products, specifically those for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. This contribution is important, since both the ‘Reflection Paper on Assessment of Cardiovascular Safety Profile of Medicinal Products’2 and the concept paper on ‘Need for Revision of the Guideline on Clinical Investigation of Medicinal Products in the Treatment of Prevention of Diabetes Mellitus’3 were both released after our paper was accepted for publication.

  • Changes in oral anticoagulation for elective cardioversion: results from a
           European cardioversion registry
    • Authors: Papp J; Zima E, Bover R, et al.
      First page: 147
      Abstract: AimsIn patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) pharmacological or electrical cardioversion may be performed to restore sinus rhythm. The procedure is associated with an increased risk of thromboembolic events, which can be significantly reduced by adequate anticoagulation (OAC). Our aim was to create a partly prospective, partly retrospective cardioversion registry, particularly focusing on OAC strategies in different European countries, and on emerging choice of OAC over time.MethodsFrom September 2014 to October 2015, cardioversions due to AF performed in six European city hospitals in five European countries (Hungary: Budapest-1 and -2; Italy: Bari and Pisa; France: Amiens; Spain: Madrid; and Lithuania: Kaunas) were recorded in the registry.ResultsA total of 1101 patients (retrospective/prospective: 679/422, male/female: 742/359, mean age: 67.3 years ± 11.2) were registered. Most of the cardioversions were electrical (97%). Oral anticoagulants were administered in 87% of the patient, the usage of non-VKA oral anticoagulants (NOACs) vs Vitamin K antagonists (VKA) was 31.5% vs 68.5%, respectively. Seventy seven percent of the patients were given oral anticoagulants more than 3 weeks prior to the procedure, and 86% more than 4 weeks after the procedure. When using VKA, international normalized ratio (INR) at cardioversion was above 2.0 in 76% of the cases. A decline in VKA usage (P = 0.033) in elective cardioversion over approximately 1 year was observed. During the observation period, there was an increase in apixaban (P < 0.001), a slight increase in rivaroxaban (P = 0.028) and no changes in dabigatran (P = 0.34) usage for elective cardioversion. There were differences in use of OAC between the countries: Spain used most VKA (89%), while France used least VKA (39%, P < 0.001).ConclusionAccording to current AF guidelines, NOACs are adequate alternatives to VKA for thromboembolic prevention in AF patients undergoing elective cardioversion. Our results indicate that NOAC use is increasing and there is a significant decrease in VKA use.

  • Adherence with oral anticoagulation in non-valvular atrial fibrillation: a
           comparison of vitamin K antagonists and non-vitamin K antagonists
    • Authors: Sørensen R; Jamie Nielsen B, Langtved Pallisgaard J, et al.
      First page: 151
      Abstract: AimsThe purpose of this study was to describe adherence with non-vitamin K antagonists (NOACs) and vitamin K antagonists (VKA) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF).Methods and resultsBy linkage of Danish nationwide registers, we identified patients with NVAF who claimed a prescription of a NOAC (dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban), or a VKA. Adherence was evaluated according to Proportions of Days Covered, refill gaps, and switch in treatment. Adjusted analyses were calculated with logistic regression and Cox proportional hazard models. Between 2011 and 2014, 46 675 patients with NVAF claimed a prescription of anticoagulation (OAC): 57.3% used VKA, 29.8% dabigatran, 8.5% rivaroxaban, and 4.4% apixaban. During the first 180 days, PDC >80% was the highest among users of rivaroxaban. Compared with rivaroxaban, OR was 0.79 with apixaban (95% CI 0.69–0.92), 0.72 with dabigatran (95% CI 0.66–0.80), and 0.76 with VKAs (95% CI 0.69–0.83). HR for refill gaps between 7 and 89 days of length were (rivaroxaban as reference): apixaban 1.52(95% CI 1.36–1.69), dabigatran 1.72 (95% CI 1.60–1.85), and VKA 2.36(95% CI 2.20–2.52). Refill gaps of more than 89 days occurred in 11.5% of VKA recipients, with substantially lower rates for patients treated with NOAC. Switch between OACs was the highest in users of dabigatran (21.0%) and the lowest in users of apixaban (8.6%).ConclusionAmong NVAF patients treated with OAC, 42.7% received a NOAC. PDC > 80%, and periods without refill gaps were the highest among users of rivaroxaban. Refill gaps occurred most often with VKA, switch was most common with dabigatran use.

  • Triple antithrombotic therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation
           undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: a viewpoint
    • Authors: Gwyn JV; Thomas MR, Kirchhof P.
      First page: 157
      Abstract: Patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are treated with dual antiplatelet therapy to reduce the risk of subsequent myocardial infarction (MI) and stent thrombosis. Approximately 5–10% of patients undergoing PCI also have atrial fibrillation (AF). Patients with AF have an additional requirement for anticoagulation, as dual antiplatelet therapy alone is insufficient to adequately reduce the risk of stroke in patients with AF. However, it is now well established that combining anticoagulants with dual antiplatelet therapy also causes a significant increase in the risk of bleeding. Hence, there is great interest in discovering the optimal blend of antiplatelet therapy and oral anticoagulation in this situation, aiming to reduce the risk of stent thrombosis, recurrent MI, and stroke, while also minimizing the risk of bleeding. Recent studies have experimented with combining oral anticoagulation with a single antiplatelet agent, rather than combining oral anticoagulation with dual antiplatelet therapy. These studies show that this reduces the risk of bleeding but are underpowered to determine whether this still provides as much cardiovascular benefit. This review summarizes the currently available evidence on this topic and highlights the key questions that remain to be answered including ongoing clinical trials in the field.

  • Gender differences in the effects of cardiovascular drugs
    • Authors: Tamargo JJ; Rosano GG, Walther TT, et al.
      First page: 163
      Abstract: Although sex-specific differences in cardiovascular medicine are well known, the exact influences of sex on the effect of cardiovascular drugs remain unclear. Women and men differ in body composition and physiology (hormonal influences during the menstrual cycle, menopause, and pregnancy) and they present differences in drug pharmacokinetics (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion) and pharmacodynamics, so that is not rare that they may respond differently to cardiovascular drugs. Furthermore, women are also less often treated with evidence-based drugs thereby preventing optimization of therapeutics for women of all ages, experience more relevant adverse drug reactions than men, and remain underrepresented in most clinical trials. Thus, current guidelines for prevention, diagnosis, and medical treatment for cardiovascular diseases are based on trials conducted predominantly in middle-aged men. A better understanding of these sex-related differences is fundamental to improve the safety and efficacy of cardiovascular drugs and for developing proper individualized cardiovascular therapeutic strategies both in men and women. This review briefly summarizes gender differences in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of cardiovascular drugs and provides recommendations to close the gaps in our understanding of sex-specific differences in drug efficacy and safety.

  • Influence of sibutramine in addition to diet and exercise on the
           relationship between weight loss and blood glucose changes
    • Authors: Kamil S; Finer N, James W, et al.
      First page: 134
      Abstract: AimsWeight loss is expected to improve glycaemic control in patients with diabetes or at high risk hereof. Sibutramine causes weight loss and is associated with an increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke in high-risk patients. We examined the impact of sibutramine-induced weight loss on glycaemic control.Methods and resultsIn total, 8192 obese patients with diabetes were randomized to sibutramine or placebo plus diet and exercise after a preliminary 6 weeks in which all patients received sibutramine. Patients were classified into four groups of weight change. A total of 1582 patients had a weight loss >5.7 kg; 2047 patients lost 3.7–5.7 kg; 2432 patients lost <3.7 kg, and 1875 patients gained weight. Patients on sibutramine lost slightly more weight than those on placebo (−0.2 kg on average, P < 0.0001). Mean blood glucose changes in the placebo group were −0.6 mmol/L (±3.1, P = 0.0002), −0.2  mmol/L (±2.7, P = 0.04), and −0.1  mmol/L (±3.0, P = 0.01) in the moderate, modest, and mild weight loss groups, respectively; in the weight gain group blood glucose levels increased by +0.2 mmol/L (±3.1, P = 0.003). Corresponding mean blood glucose changes in the sibutramine-treated patients were −0.4 mmol/L (±3.2, P = 0.0002), +0.1 mmol/L (±3.0, P = 0.04), +0.4 mmol/L (±2.8, P = 0.01), and +0.2 mmol/L (±3.4, P = 0.003). Mean values of HbA1c followed the same pattern though the HbA1c changes were smaller with weight loss and greater with weight gain in the sibutramine group. All results were statistically significant (P < 0.0001).ConclusionWeight loss induced by sibutramine, diet, and exercise attenuates falls in blood glucose levels and HbA1c compared with similar weight loss with placebo, diet, and exercise.

  • Thiazolidinediones are associated with a decreased risk of atrial
           fibrillation compared with other antidiabetic treatment: a nationwide
           cohort study
    • Authors: Pallisgaard J; Lindhardt T, Staerk L, et al.
      First page: 140
      Abstract: AimThe aim of this study was to investigate the association between thiazolidinediones (TZDs) vs. other antidiabetic drugs and risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) in diabetic patients.Method and resultsDiabetes mellitus (diabetes) increases the risk of AF by approximately 34%. TZD is an insulin sensitizer that also has anti-inflammatory effects, which might decrease the risk of AF compared with other antidiabetic drugs. We used data from the Danish nationwide registries to study 108 624 patients with diabetes and without prior AF who were treated with metformin or sulfonylurea as first-line drugs. The incidence of AF was significantly lower with TZD as the second-line antidiabetic treatment compared with other second-line antidiabetic drugs (P < 0.001). The 10 year cumulative incidence [95% confidence interval (95% CI)] of AF was 6.2% (3.1–9.3%) with TZD vs. 10.2% (9.8–10.6%) with other antidiabetic drugs. The decreased risk of AF remained significant after adjusting for age, sex, and comorbidities with a hazard ratio (95% CI) of 0.76 (0.57–1.00), P = 0.047 associated with TZD treatment compared with other antidiabetic drugs.ConclusionUse of a TZD to treat diabetes was associated with reduced risk of developing AF compared with other antidiabetic drugs as second-line treatment.
