A clinical randomized trial to evaluate if CF guided Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) to a specific of LSI in atrial flutter i superior to standard RFA.
The objective of the study is:Phase I: To validate or otherwise determine the Chinese-specific appropriate contact force during PVI in PAF.Phase II: To evaluate the effectiveness and safet...
Pulmonary vein (PV) isolation is very important in atrial fibrillation (AF) catheter ablation. PV reconnection is one of the main reasons in AF recurrence. Contact force-sensing catheter i...
The aim of the study is to compare the acute procedure and safety outcomes as well as long term clinical outcomes of 2 groups of patients treated with the HeartLight® Endoscopically Guide...
The purpose of this study is to collect information about the success rate of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation procedures using the contact force data from the TactiCath Quartz ablation c...
The risk of stroke and thromboembolism in atrial fibrillation is established. There are clear guidelines in anticoagulation management of patient's with atrial fibrillation, however, the evidence surr...
Before the discovery of contact-force guidance, eliminating pacing capture along the pulmonary vein (PV) isolation line had been reported to improve PV isolation durability and rhythm outcomes. DRAGON...
During recent years, systematic reviews of observational studies have compared digoxin to no digoxin in patients with atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, and the results of these reviews suggested ...
Atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter may be managed by either a rhythm control strategy or a rate control strategy but the evidence on the clinical effects of these two intervention strategies is un...
The aim of this study was to compare the risk of ischemic stroke in patients who have atrial fibrillation and patients who have atrial flutter.
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 potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an extremely rapid, hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (150-300 beats/min) with a large oscillating sine-wave appearance. If untreated, ventricular flutter typically progresses to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.
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 type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.
The rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.
