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.

Effect of Catheter Ablation vs Antiarrhythmic Drug Therapy on Mortality, Stroke, Bleeding, and Cardiac Arrest Among Patients With Atrial Fibrillation: The CABANA Randomized Clinical Trial.

Catheter ablation is effective in restoring sinus rhythm in atrial fibrillation (AF), but its effects on long-term mortality and stroke risk are uncertain.

The effect of contact force during radiofrequency catheter ablation using a vibrating catheter: New cooling method for catheter ablation.

A new cooling method is proposed for preventing electrode-tissue overheating during cardiac catheter ablation using a vibrating catheter. Previous work has shown that vibration that results from incre...

Safety and Outcomes of Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation in Adults with Congenital Heart Disease: A Multicenter Registry Study.

An increasing number of adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) are undergoing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF). Data on ablation strategy and outcomes is limited in CHD. Rhythm contr...

A decade of catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias in Sweden: ablation practices and outcomes.

Catheter ablation is considered the treatment of choice for many tachyarrhythmias, but convincing 'real-world' data on efficacy and safety are lacking. Using Swedish national registry data, the ablati...

Clinical Trials [12667 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) Ablation Versus Enhanced Drug Therapy

This study will compare aggressive antiarrhythmic therapy to catheter ablation for ventricular tachycardia in patients who have suffered prior myocardial infarction. The purpose of this s...

Catheter Ablation Versus Antiarrhythmic Drugs for Therapy of Premature Ventricular Contractions in Patients With Structural Heart Disease

For therapy of symptomatic premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) in subjects with structural heart disease the current European Guidelines for the management of patients with ventricular ...

Comparison of PVI Plus Catheter Ablation or PVI Alone for the Treatment of AFib for Patients With Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

There is a need to compare the efficacy of PVI versus PVI plus catheter ablation, which includes ablation of complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE) and linear lesions in the same ...

Catheter Ablation vs. Medical Therapy in Congested Hearts With AF

This study is a multi-center, randomized, unblinded, clinical trial. The objective is to determine if catheter-based atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation is superior to medical treatment in p...

Thermocool SF Catheter Versus Thermocool Catheter in Isthmus-dependent Atrial Flutter Ablation

Porous tip catheter use reduces procedure time and RF time in atrial flutter ablation with the same safety.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.

Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.

A drug that exerts an inhibitory effect on gastric secretion and reduces gastrointestinal motility. It is used clinically in the drug therapy of gastrointestinal ulcers.

Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.

Process that is gone through in order for a drug to receive approval by a government regulatory agency. This includes any required pre-clinical or clinical testing, review, submission, and evaluation of the applications and test results, and post-marketing surveillance of the drug.
