Ablation of atrial fibrillation is an established method for treatment of subjects with atrial fibrillation with goal of restoration of sinus rhythm. Among different methods, wide area circular ablation (WACA) is shown to provide the same results with fewer complications. This project will compare WACA with extra-wide area circular ablation (E-WACA) in subjects who are considered for ablation of atrial fibrillation.

The study is conducted in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing clinically prescribed ablation. The study hypothesis is that ablation at specific sites that are identified to 'driv...
The study will assess the atrial fibrillation burden recorded By implantable loop recorder at 12 and 24 months compared to baseline. The patients with clinical indication fo catheter ablat...
This is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter, multi-country pilot study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Ablation Frontiers Cardiac Ablation System for the ablative tr...
A randomized trial has recently demonstrated non-inferiority of cryoballoon vs. radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation in patients with drug-refractory paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate whether performing complex fractionated atrial electrograms ablation improves outcomes in persistent or atrial fibrillation ablation.
Radiofrequency ablation has become a safe and effective treatment for atrial fibrillation. We believe that referral to an electrophysiologist for consideration of ablation may allow for better rhythm ...
Catheter ablation for rhythm control is recommended in specific patient populations with paroxysmal, persistent, or long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation. Pulmonary vein isolation is the corner...
Unlike catheter ablation, little is known about the benefits of cavotricuspid isthmus (CTI) ablation in total thoracoscopic ablation (TTA) of atrial fibrillation (AF). This study aimed to investigate ...
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...
We describe the technical aspects and outcomes of several different ablation strategies for nonparoxysmal (persistent and long-standing persistent) atrial fibrillation (AF) and discuss our ablation st...
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).
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.
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)
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.
A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
