Objective: The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of complex fractionated atrial electrocardiograms (CFAEs) guided ablation to pulmonary vein isolation based ablat...
Radiofrequency catheter ablation is effective in the treatment of patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. In order to reduce the recurrence rate after catheter ablation, we propose t...
This is an electrogram mapping study that tests the ability of a new signal processing technique called electrogram morphology recurrence mapping to locate drivers in participants with atr...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia worldwide with a prevalence of 8% in the elderly. AF is responsible for frequent hospitalizations, stroke, heart failure and ...
The overall goal of this project is to test the feasibility of performing real-time electrogram morphology recurrence (EMR) mapping in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) to ...
Until today, catheter interventional mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) has been limited to the right and left atrial endocardium. We report feasibility, electrophysiological findings, a...
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...
The mechanisms by which persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) terminates via localized ablation are not well understood. To address the hypothesis that sites where localized ablation terminates persiste...
We describe a patient with perimitral atrial flutter (PMF) following the atrial fibrillation ablation and the linear ablation at the mitral isthmus (MI). From both the activation and the voltage maps ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of intra-atrial dyssynchrony as a marker of underlying left atrial (LA) remodeling to predict recurrence after the first atrial fibrillation (A...
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)
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.
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.
