Cryoballon Versus Radiofrequency Ablation for Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

A randomized trial has recently demonstrated non-inferiority of cryoballoon vs. radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation in patients with drug-refractory paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). ...

Radiofrequency Ablation of Drivers of Atrial Fibrillation

The purpose of this study is to assess the value of ablation of high frequency sources following circumferential pulmonary veins isolation in patients with paroxysmal and persistent atrial...

Effects of Catheter Ablation on Burden of Atrial Fibrillation (MRICEMAN)

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...

Study of Statin for Reduction of Postoperative Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

The study will select all recruited patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation will be randomly allocated to receive oral rosuvastatin 20mg/day or blank control from 7 days before ablati...

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Versus Antiarrhythmic Drug Treatment in Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart arrhythmia afflicting approximately 1% of the Danish population. Medical antiarrhythmic treatment is only moderately effective and has the risk...

Electrocardiographic Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Predicts Recurrence of Atrial Arrhythmias after Catheter Ablation of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation.

Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent predictor of new-onset atrial fibrillation. Whether LVH can predict the recurrence of arrhythmia after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in p...

Transesophageal echocardiography measures left atrial appendage volume and function and predicts recurrence of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation after radiofrequency catheter ablation.

Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) commonly recurs after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA). This study aimed to assess left atrial appendage (LAA) volume and function by transesophageal echoca...

Non-fluoroscopic catheter ablation of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

Radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most complex ablation procedures. Both patients and operators are exposed to scattered radiation. This study evaluated the sa...

Biomarkers determining prognosis of atrial fibrillation ablation.

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...

Pulmonary vein volume predicts the outcome of radiofrequency catheter ablation of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

Catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is an effective therapy for selected groups of patients. We evaluated whether quantification of left atrium (LA) or pulmonary vein (PV) by using multi-det...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.

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.
