Effect of Catheter Ablation vs Antiarrhythmic Medication on Quality of Life in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation: The CAPTAF Randomized Clinical Trial.

Quality of life is not a standard primary outcome in ablation trials, even though symptoms drive the indication.

Supraventricular arrhythmia with discordant electrocardiographic features: What is the arrhythmia mechanism?

Junctional and AV nodal reentrant tachycardia share common electrocardiographic features, but they differ in their management and outcomes after catheter ablation. This case concerns a 60-year-old fem...

Disease progression after ablation for atrial flutter compared with atrial fibrillation: A nationwide cohort study.

The aim of this study was to study the risk of death and development of arrhythmia and/or subsequently heart failure after an atrial flutter ablation procedure compared with an atrial fibrillation (AF...

Longitudinal Evaluation of Quality of Life in Laryngeal Cancer Patients Treated with Surgery.

There is insufficient prospective data on quality of life outcomes for laryngeal cancer patients undergoing surgery, especially in low- and middle-income countries. This limits clinical and patient de...

Effect of Catheter Ablation vs Medical Therapy on Quality of Life Among Patients With Atrial Fibrillation: The CABANA Randomized Clinical Trial.

Catheter ablation is more effective than drug therapy in restoring sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), but its incremental effect on long-term quality of life (QOL) is uncertain.

MRI Assessment of Arrythmia Ablation Lesions

This study will evaluate the feasibility of visualization and characterization of arrhythmia ablation lesions by MRI immediately following standard ablation techniques. The appearance of t...

Correlation of the Arrhythmia Mechanism and Substrate to Ablate Persistent Atrial Fibrillation Study

This is a pilot study to assess the usefulness of ECG mapping, and enhanced MRI and PET scan imaging in identifying atrial fibrosis and arrhythmia circuits involved in persistent atrial fi...

Effect of Radiofrequency Ablation in Patients With Ventricular Arrhythmia Undergoing CABG

Patients with myocardial infarction related potential malignant ventricular arrhythmia have high risk of sudden death. The aim of this clinical trial is evaluating therapeutic efficacy of ...

Evaluation of PET/MR in Patients Selected for Ablation Therapy

This study is performed to assess if PET-MR imaging can improve treatment of patients with irregular heart rate and heart failure. Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is too weak to...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Longitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of adolescents in grades 7-12 in the United States during the 1994-95 school year. The Add Health cohort has been followed into young adulthood. (from http://www.cpc.unc.edu/projects/addhealth accessed 08/2012)

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)

A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.

Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

A potent anti-arrhythmia agent, effective in a wide range of ventricular and atrial arrhythmias and tachycardias. Paradoxically, however, in myocardial infarct patients with either symptomatic or asymptomatic arrhythmia, flecainide exacerbates the arrhythmia and is not recommended for use in these patients.
