Recent studies suggest that left atrial (LA) late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) can quantify the underlying tissue remodeling that harbors atrial fibrillation (AF). However, quantification of LA-LGE re...
A 23-year-old gentleman presented with a history of palpitations. The 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) showed no manifest ventricular preexcitation. Echocardiogram was within normal limits. Retrograde ...
P-wave parameters representing atrial conduction heterogeneity are associated with recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after catheter ablation. However, intra- and inter-observer variabilities are ...
To compare effect of intra-nodal injection of gentamicin versus placebo on the outcome at 28 days of suppurated cat scratch disease's (CSD) lymphadenitis treated by oral azithromycin.
Aim. To assess the effects of cardioneuroablation (CNA) on cardiac autonomic regulation and syncope recurrences in patients with vasovagal syncope (VVS), and to compare this novel approach...
Systemic mediastinal lymphadenectomy is deemed indispensable in lung cancer surgery for accurate staging and complete resection. However, extensive lymphadenectomy in patients without noda...
Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of infra-popliteal arteries in patients suffering peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) provides good results in terms of limb salvage. D...
Does the tumor thickness value of buccal squamous cell carcinomas, predict cervical nodal metastasis in clinically and radio-graphical neck negative (N0) thus sparing such patients unneces...
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
The founding member of the nodal signaling ligand family of proteins. Nodal protein was originally discovered in the region of the mouse embryo primitive streak referred to as HENSEN'S NODE. It is expressed asymmetrically on the left side in chordates and plays a critical role in the genesis of left-right asymmetry during vertebrate development.
Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.
A group of conditions in which HEART VENTRICLE activation by the atrial impulse is faster than the normal impulse conduction from the SINOATRIAL NODE. In these pre-excitation syndromes, atrial impulses often bypass the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE delay and travel via accessory pathways connecting the atrium directly to the BUNDLE OF HIS.
