Sudden onset double vision

An 83 year old woman was admitted to the acute stroke unit with sudden onset double vision that had lasted for three hours. She had a medical history of monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance and atrial fibrillation, for which she was not receiving anticoagulation because of an adverse reaction to warfarin. She had no history of transient ischaemic attack or stroke. She had diplopia only when looking through her right. On examination she was unable to adduct her left eye, with nystagmus in her right eye when she attempted to do this. Her neurological examination was otherwise normal. Computed tomography of the head on admission was normal, as was magnetic resonance imaging of the head, which was requested the next day. Figure 1⇓ shows T2 weighted (A) and diffusion weighted (B) sequences at the level of the upper pons.

Atrial Fibrillation

Advancements in the treatment and prevention of Atrial Fibrillation are presented in this important new book. Atrial Fibrillation affects approximately 2.5 million individuals in the United States and is projected to affect 15 million individuals by 2050. In Atrial Fibrillation: From Bench to Bedside, the reader is provided with the latest information that is critically important in the daily care and for the potential cure of patients with Atrial Fibrillation. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of Atrial Fibrillation and was authored by internationally recognized experts in the evolving field of cardiac electrophysiology. This book is a single source that provides a multi-perspective look at and approach to Atrial Fibrillation. Because Atrial Fibrillation is so prevalent and affects all areas of medicine, the information in this book will be useful to cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, researchers, and all those in the medical field.

Focus On: Atrial Fibrillation - Rhythm Control Options in the Emergency Department

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice. It is characterized by an irregular narrow complex rhythm, with an atrial rate of approximately 400-700 beats per minute and a ventricular rate of 100-180 beats per minute.

Atrial fibrillation and dilated cardiomyopathy

How often have you encountered AF in a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy and a strong history of ethanol abuse? (I recently worked in a department where this is a very common phenomenon. I have consulted the web, but would like to hear what you guys have experienced.)
