Atherosclerosis: Association between the gut microbiome and atherosclerosis
William T. Barrington & Aldons J. Lusis
Published online: 03 November 2017
p699 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.169
The gut microbiota has been associated with many different disorders, including cardiovascular diseases. A new study by Jie and colleagues is the first large case-control study to examine directly the enrichment of certain communities of gut bacteria in patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease compared with control individuals.

Management of atrial high-rate episodes detected by cardiac implanted electronic devices
Ben Freedman et al.
Published online: 06 July 2017
p701 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.94
Cardiac implanted electronic devices (CIEDs) frequently detect subclinical atrial high-rate episodes (AHREs), but the relevance and appropriate clinical response to these episodes is uncertain. In this Review, Freedman and colleagues discuss the relationship between AHREs, atrial fibrillation, and risk of stroke, and propose a management algorithm for patients with CIED-detected AHREs.

Sudden infant death syndrome and inherited cardiac conditions
Alban-Elouen Baruteau et al.
Published online: 07 September 2017
p715 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.129
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of infant mortality in developed countries. In this Review, Behr and colleagues provide an update on the spectrum and prevalence of the subset of SIDS mediated by cardiogenetic factors, and the clinical implications of SIDS in the surviving family and general population.

Interventional and surgical occlusion of the left atrial appendage
Etem Caliskan et al.
Published online: 10 August 2017
p727 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.107
The left atrial appendage is known to be a source of thromboemboli in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, and the interventional or surgical occlusion or exclusion of this anatomical structure is an alternative approach to anticoagulation therapy for the prevention of stroke. In this Review, Caliskan et al. discuss the various methods for occlusion of the left atrial appendage, and provide an overview of the clinical studies investigating these techniques.

Unmasking the molecular link between arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy and Brugada syndrome
Javier Moncayo-Arlandi & Ramon Brugada
Published online: 13 July 2017
p744 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.103
Several macromolecular structures coexist in the intercalated discs, which connect cardiomyocytes and control cell-to-cell communication. In this Perspectives article, Moncayo-Arlandi and Brugada suggest that the structures of the intercalated disc form an interactive 'connexome'. They also propose a link between arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy and Brugada syndrome on the basis of overlapping genetic, molecular, and pathophysiological mechanisms.
