Patients with well-controlled anticoagulation intensity on VKA therapy (TTR >70%) have a low risk of thromboembolism and bleeding. 46 48 An average TTR of >70% for individual patients is recommended in a position statement from the ESC Working Group on Thrombosis Anticoagulation Task Force. 49 Where TTR using the linear interpolation method of Rosendaal is not always available, other measures of quality of anticoagulation control, such as proportion of time in therapeutic INR range, may be used. In the randomized trials, the effect size of NOAC compared with warfarin for stroke and bleeding was maintained irrespective of centre-based TTR quartile, and the clear relative risk reduction of NOACs for intracranial haemorrhage compared with VKA persisted, although the difference in absolute rates was small. A high TTR can also easily be altered by acute events, such as infection (requiring antibiotics), hospitalization, decompensated heart failure, and deterioration of renal or hepatic function.

A meta-analysis of the NOAC trials found a greater reduction in major bleeding with the NOACs when centre-based TTR was <66% than when it was ≥66% (relative risk 0.69, 95% CI 0.59–0.81 vs. 0.93, 0.76–1.13; interaction P = 0.022). 34 In a longitudinal follow-up of AF patients on a VKA with initial baseline TTR of 100%, the SAMe-TT 2 R 2 score [Sex, Age <60 years, Medical history (at least two of the following: hypertension, diabetes, CAD/myocardial infarction, PAD, heart failure, previous stroke, pulmonary disease, hepatic, or renal disease), Treatment (interacting drugs, e.g. amiodarone for rhythm control), current Tobacco use (two points), Race (non-Caucasian, two points)] identified anticoagulated AF patients who were likely to remain event free on VKA therapy (SAMe-TT 2 R 2 score 0–2, with TTR >70%). 50 52 This difference is attributable to adverse events such as thromboembolism and bleeding when the TTR is low or labile. 51 The SAMe-TT 2 R 2 score may help to guide the selection of an NOAC or VKA treatment without a trial of warfarin that could expose patients to an increased risk of thromboembolism or intracranial haemorrhage.

Ultimately, patient values and preferences should be considered, 53 particularly for patients with TTR of >70% for whom routine anticoagulation INR monitoring is challenging, self-monitoring is unsuitable, or adherence to the dietary, drug, or alcohol restrictions required for safe VKA use is difficult. Substitution of an NOAC may be appropriate for such patients but, as always, associated comorbidities should be considered in choosing one NOAC over another.

Patients with a single additional stroke risk factor have an increased risk of AF-related stroke. The stroke risk is lower than in patients with multiple vascular risk factors. 54 , 55 Reported ischaemic stroke and thromboembolism rates vary widely, but in some studies the annual risk was 0.5–3.0%. 56 , 57 Different individual single stroke risk factors occurring in isolation to yield a CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc [Congestive heart failure (or left ventricular systolic dysfunction), Hypertension, Age ≥75 years (2 points), Diabetes mellitus, prior Stroke or TIA or thromboembolism (2 points), Vascular disease (e.g. PAD, myocardial infarction, and aortic plaque), Age 65–74 years, Sex category (i.e. female sex)] score of 1 in males and 2 in females are not associated with equal stroke risk: the highest risk is associated with hypertension and age 65–74 years followed by diabetes. 44 , 58

» Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services (MAES)

Document Actions

The fifth MAES report has been published . This report makes proposals for measuring the condition of terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystem types based on a selection of indicators. A set with specific indicators is available for assessment of ecosystem condition per ecosystem type. A core set with key indicators is available to support an integrated ecosystem assessment across ecosystem type.

The report defines ecosystem condition, describes in a conceptual model the link between pressures, ecosystem condition and ecosystem services, and provides a hierarchical structure and classification of pressure and ecosystem condition indicators. It does not define reference conditions but instead argues for a spatial baseline considering the current use and management of land and sets a reference in 2010 against which condition should be evaluated.

Action 5 of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 calls Member States to map and assess the state of ecosystems and their services in their national territory with the assistance of the European Commission.A dedicated Working Group has been established under the to deliver under Action 5.

Why are we doing this?

In line with the Millennium Ecosystem assessment (MA), the objective of the EU assessment is to provide a critical evaluation of the best available information for guiding decisions on complex public issues. The work being carried out is important for the advancement of biodiversity objectives, and also to inform the development and implementation of related policies, on water, climate, agriculture, forest, and regional planning. Robust, reliable and comparable data are also important for the planning and implementation of individual projects.

Why mapping?

Maps are useful for spatially explicit prioritisation and problem identification, especially in relation to synergies and trade-offs among different ecosystem services, and between ecosystem services and biodiversity. Further, maps can be used as a communication tool to initiate discussions with stakeholders, visualizing the locations where valuable ecosystem services are produced or used and explaining the relevance of ecosystem services to the public in their territory.

MAES Analytical Framework

A first outcome is the development of a coherent analytical framework to be applied by the EU and its Member States in order to ensure consistent approaches are used. It is therefore framed by a broad set of key policy questions. It is structured around a conceptual framework that links human societies and their well-being with the environment.

Conceptual framework for EU wide ecosystem assessment

Adding video recording to tilt testing, Saal et al. 205 recently showed, in patients with asystole, that asystole occurred 3 s before syncope or later in one-third of patients, in whom cardioinhibition was too late to have primarily caused syncope; in the other two-thirds of asystolic tilt responses, the cause must have been mainly cardioinhibition or a combination of cardioinhibition and vasodepression.

The clinical presentation is probably as important as tilt test positivity when selecting patients who can benefit from cardiac pacing. The SUP 2 study population was characterized by higher mean age, history of recurrent syncope beginning in middle or older age, and frequent injuries, probably due to presentation without warning. 292

Owing to the contrasting results of the randomized trials, the estimated benefit of dual-chamber pacing in cardioinhibitory tilt-positive patients is weak. Divergence of opinion exists among experts. Further research is very likely to have an important impact on recommendations. Conversely, there is strong consensus that pacing cannot be offered to patients with non-cardioinhibitory tilt-positive response, and further tests (e.g. ILR) are warranted to document the mechanism of the spontaneous reflex.

Under this term, classified as a non-classical form of reflex syncope in Table 3 , different clinical conditions are included, which have a supposed role of adenosine in the genesis of syncope in common.

A new clinical entity, called idiopathic AV block, has recently been described in patients with a long history of syncope and in whom paroxysmal AV block could be recorded at the time of syncope recurrence. 5 These patients had an otherwise normal heart and no sign of conduction disease on ECG and EPS; they had very low plasma adenosine levels and a high induction rate of transient complete heart block during exogenous injections of adenosine. No syncope recurrence was observed after permanent cardiac pacing over very long periods of follow-up and there was no permanent AV block.

Similarly, the entity of ‘ low-adenosine syncope ’ has recently been described in patients who have an otherwise unexplained syncope with sudden onset without prodrome, a normal heart, and normal ECG. 4 The clinical, laboratory, and biological features of these patients are similar to those observed in patients affected by idiopathic paroxysmal AV block. Unlike in VVS, tilt testing is usually negative. 4 , 226 No syncope recurrence was observed after permanent cardiac pacing in 10 patients who had ECG documentation of asystolic pause due to sinus arrest or AV block. 286

In a small multicentre trial 227 performed in 80 highly selected elderly patients with unexplained unpredictable syncope who had a positive response to intravenous injection of a bolus of 20 mg of ATP, dual-chamber cardiac pacing significantly reduced the 2-year syncope recurrence rate from 69% in the control group to 23% in the active group.
