    Abstract:

    Aims Antazoline is a first-generation antihistaminic drug used primarily in eye drop formulations. When administered intravenously, Antazoline displays antiarrhythmic properties resulting in a rapid conversion of recent-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) to sinus rhythm (SR). The aim of the study was to assess the influence of Antazoline on atrio-venous conduction and other electrophysiological parameters in patients undergoing AF ablation. Methods An experimental prospective study. Patients scheduled for the first-time AF ablation, in SR and not on amiodarone were enrolled. Atrio-venous conduction assessment and invasive electrophysiological study (EPS) were performed before and after intravenous administration of 250 mg of Antazoline. In case of AF induction during EPS, Antazoline was administered until conversion to SR or a cumulative dose of 300 mg. Results We enrolled 14 patients: 13 (93%) men, mean age 63.4 (59.9-66.8) years, mean CHA2 DS2 -VASc score 1.6 (1.0-2.2). Antazoline was administered in a mean dose 257.1 (246.7-267.6) mg. Pulmonary vein potentials and atrial capture during pulmonary vein stimulation were present before and after the administration of Antazoline. Wenckebach point and atrial conduction times did not change significantly, but atrio-ventricular node effective refractory period improved-324.7 (275.9-373.5) ms vs 284.3 (256.2-312.4) ms, P = 0.02. Antazoline was effective in all 5 (100%) cases of AF induction during EPS. There were no serious adverse events. Conclusion Due to the lack of influence on atrio-venous conduction and high clinical effectiveness, Antazoline may be suitable for pharmacological cardioversion of AF occurring during AF ablation.

  • clinical effectiveness and safety of Antazoline based therapy in patients with stable coronary artery disease undergoing pharmacological cardioversion of short duration atrial fibrillation in the emergency department

    Abstract:

    Introduction Options for a pharmacological cardioversion (CV) of short-duration atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with a stable coronary artery disease (CAD) are limited to amiodarone or vernakalant. Antazoline has been reported to achieve high rates of AF conversion to sinus rhythm, but data on its effectiveness and, more importantly, safety in stable CAD patients, have been sparse. Aims To assess the effectiveness and safety of Antazoline-based therapy in patients with a stable CAD undergoing pharmacological CV of short-duration AF in the emergency department (ED). Results A retrospective case-control study. We conducted an analysis of medical records of patients with a stable CAD undergoing CV of short duration (≤48 hours) AF in the ED using intravenous Antazoline. The main endpoints of the study were successful cardioversion of AF and hospitalization due to the adverse effects (AE) of the treatment. Between 2008 and 2012, out of 548 CVs, Antazoline was administered 334 times: 138 in CAD and 196 in the control group. Patients in the CAD group were older and had more comorbidities than controls; 65 patients had had a history of myocardial infarction (MI). In CAD group, the effectiveness was higher (82.6% vs 63.8%, RB: 1.30 [95% CI: 1.14-1.48], P = 0.0002) and the hospitalization rate due to AE was similar (1.4% vs 4.1%, RR: 0.36 [95% CI: 0.08-1.65], P = 0.2054) to the control group. Among patients with CAD, a history of MI did not influence the effectiveness or safety of the CV (P = 0.2252 and P = 1.0000, respectively). Conclusions In selected patients with a stable CAD, even with a history of MI, Antazoline-based CV of short-duration AF may be an effective and safe therapeutic option.
