Cardiac Tumors Interventional (Radio Frequency/Laser Ablation)Therapy

Currently, surgical removal remains the main clinical treatment for cardiac tumor patients. However, malignant tumors are hard to completely resect. Also, as thoracoscopic surgeries induce...

Focussed Echocardiography to Detect Preoperative Hypovolemia and Left Ventricular Dysfunction as a Predictor of Post-Induction Hypotension

This is an observational study to evaluate the role of a Bed side Focus assessed Transthoracic Echocardiography (FATE) in identifying the patients at a potential risk of developing hypoten...

The Effect of Age on Intranasal Dexmedetomidine Sedation for Pediatric Transthoracic Echocardiography: A Dose-response Study

Increasing evidences suggest that dexmedetomidine pharmacokinetic are different in children. The investigators performed a two-stage study to determine the ED50 and the ED95 of intranasal ...

Focal Prostate Radio-Frequency Ablation

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of focal (targeted) Radio-Frequency Ablation (RFA) in men with low or intermediate-risk, clinically localized prostate...

EGM Analysis in Idiopathic Outflow Tract Ventricular Arrhythmia

Investigate the value of unipolar and bipolar electrograms (EGM) for predicting the successful ablation site for idiopathic outflow tract ventricular arrhythmia (OTVA).

An Echocardiography Training Program for Improving the Left Ventricular Function Interpretation in Emergency Department; a Brief Report.

Focused training in transthoracic echocardiography enables emergency physicians (EPs) to accurately estimate the left ventricular function. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of a brief trainin...

Procedural complication and long term outcomes after alcohol septal ablation in patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: data from China.

Data on procedural complications and long term survival after alcohol septal ablation (ASA) in Chinese patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HOCM) are lacking. We aimed to investigate...

Liquid metal bath as conformable soft electrodes for target tissue ablation in radio-frequency ablation therapy.

Radio-frequency ablation has been an important physical method for tumor hyperthermia therapy. The conventional rigid electrode boards are often uncomfortable and inconvenient for performing surgery o...

Feasibility and Accuracy of Automated Software for Transthoracic Three-Dimensional Left Ventricular Volume and Function Analysis: Comparisons with Two-Dimensional Echocardiography, Three-Dimensional Transthoracic Manual Method, and Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Recently, a new automated software package (HeartModel) was developed to obtain three-dimensional (3D) left ventricular (LV) volumes using a model-based algorithm (MBA) with a "one-button" simple syst...

Standard Ablation Versus Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Guided Ablation in the Treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Electromagnetic waves with frequencies between about 3 kilohertz (very low frequency - VLF) and 300,000 megahertz (extremely high frequency - EHF). They are used in television and radio broadcasting, land and satellite communications systems, radionavigation, radiolocation, and DIATHERMY. The highest frequency radio waves are MICROWAVES.

Machine readable patient or equipment identification device using radio frequency from 125 kHz to 5.8 Ghz.

Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.

A subfield of acoustics dealing in the radio frequency range higher than acoustic SOUND waves (approximately above 20 kilohertz). Ultrasonic radiation is used therapeutically (DIATHERMY and ULTRASONIC THERAPY) to generate HEAT and to selectively destroy tissues. It is also used in diagnostics, for example, ULTRASONOGRAPHY; ECHOENCEPHALOGRAPHY; and ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, to visually display echoes received from irradiated tissues.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
