The procedural data of pulmonary vein (PV) isolation (PVI) for patients with atrial fibrillation using the second-generation laser balloon (LB2), which became available recently, remains unclear and were evaluated.
This article was published in the following journal.

Ablation procedures for the treatment of atrial fibrillation lead to changes in autonomic heart control; however, there are insufficient data on the possible association of these changes with atrial f...
Our aim was to test the hypothesis that comprehensive simplified left atrial (LA) assessment derived from routine echocardiography may be more useful than assessment of LA volume alone for predicting ...
Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is commonly performed in patients with drug-refractory symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). However, the very long-term follow-up result is limited.
Effect of cryoballoon and radiofrequency ablation for pulmonary vein isolation on left atrial function in patients with non-valvular paroxysmal atrial fibrillation: a prospective randomized study (Cryo-LAEF study).
Isolation of the pulmonary veins (PVI) has become mainstay in atrial fibrillation (AFib) therapy. Lesions in left atrial tissue lead to scar formation and this may affect left atrial function.
Catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) by means of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) focuses on the PVs as the putative trigger of AF. However, which classification should be used to identify pati...
The investigators prospectively investigate the differences between contact-force guided pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) and conventional pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysma...
Cryoballoon ablation is proven to be effective in pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. However, it is not certain that cryoablation is effective and sa...
Comparison of Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation Alone Versus Linear Ablation in Addition to Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation for Catheter Ablation in Persistent Atrial Fibrillation: Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes depending on catheter ablation strategy for persistent atrial fibrillation. After randomization, investigators will conduct ci...
Comparison of Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation and Complex Pulmonary Vein Isolation Additional Linear Ablation for Recurred Atrial Fibrillation After Previous Catheter Ablation: Prospective Randomized Trial (CALRA-AF)
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes depending on catheter ablation strategy for repeat ablation procedure among the patients with recurred atrial fibrillation aft...
Objective: This prospective study aims to examine the outcome of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation after permanent pulmonary vein antrum isolation or pulmonary vein antrum isolation plus l...
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).
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
