ECEIM 2019: Four members of the Equine Cardiac Group (Sanni Hansen, Helena Carstensen, Charlotte Hopster-Iversen and Eva Hesselkilde) participated at the European College of Equine Internal Medicine congress in Valencia, where they presented the latest data on implantable loop recorders and 3D endocardial mapping.
November 2019: Hesselkilde and Carstensen et al. Published: "Longitudinal study of electrical, functional and structural remodelling in an equine model of atrial fibrillation". Open access, available here: https://bmccardiovascdisord.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12872-019-1210-4
August 2019: Visit from Australia resulted in 3D endocardial electroanatomic mapping of left and right atria in 13 standing horses. We thank Dr. Sander and Dr. Linz for an incredible week.
May 2019: PhD Arnela Saljic, Postdoc Helena Carsten and Postdoc Eva Hesselkilde travels to Maastricht to analyse AF propagations patterns in horses
March 2019: Visit from professor Prash Sanders and his group from Australia – first 3D endocardial mapping in standing horses
February 2019: First paroxymal AF episode detected in a horses with poor performance by a loop recorder
October 2018: Eva Zander Hesselkilde defended her PhD entitled: An Equine Model of Atrial Fibrillation, Underlying Mechanisms, Cardiac Remodelling and Electrocardiographic Studies
September 2018: Sarah Nissen started as a PhD student in the Equine Cardiac Group
September 2018: Transvenous electrical cardioversion of atrial fibrillation has now been introduced in horses at the University hospital. This has so far been conducted in 24 Horses
March 2018: Helena Carstensen defended her PhD entitled: Pharmacological treatment of Atrial Fibrillation in horses
