Pulmonary Vein Isolation With Versus Without Continued Antiarrhythmic Drug Treatment in Subjects With Recurrent Atrial Fibrillation

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of PV isolation with continued antiarrhythmic drug treatment (PVI+ADT) to PV isolation without continued ADT (PVI-ADT) in pa...

First Line Radiofrequency Ablation Versus Antiarrhythmic Drugs for Atrial Fibrillation Treatment (The RAAFT Study)

The purpose of this study is to determine whether catheter-based pulmonary vein isolation is superior to antiarrhythmic drugs as first line therapy in patients with symptomatic paroxysmal ...

A Trial of Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Ablation (CPVA) Versus Antiarrhythmic Drug Therapy in for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

Background: Circumferential pulmonary vein ablation (CPVA) has been safely and effectively performed for treating paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF); however, its safety and efficacy, as...

Contact Force Guided Ablation Versus Conventional Pulmonary Vein Isolation for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

The investigators prospectively investigate the differences between contact-force guided pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) and conventional pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysma...

Pulmonary Vein (PV) -Isolation: Arrhythmogenic Vein(s) Versus All Veins

We conduct a randomized study comparing the safety and effectiveness of two interventional ablation techniques for treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation: the segmental pulmonary vei...

PulmOnary vein isolation With vs. without continued antiarrhythmic Drug trEatment in subjects with Recurrent Atrial Fibrillation (POWDER AF): results from a multicentre randomized trial.

Catheter ablation is indicated in patients with symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) resistant to antiarrhythmic drug therapy (ADT). We investigated whether continued use of previously inef...

Midazolam addition to analgosedation for pulmonary vein isolation may increase risk of hypercapnia and acidosis.

Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is generally performed under analgosedation, but sedation protocols vary and no optimal protocol has been defined. We investigated procedural, respiratory and hemodynami...

Time-to-isolation guided titration of freeze duration in 3rd generation short-tip cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation - Comparable clinical outcome and shorter procedure duration.

The optimal freeze duration in cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is unknown. The 3rd generation cryoballoon facilitates observation of the time-to-isolation (TTI) and thereby enables individu...

Left atrial function after epicardial pulmonary vein isolation in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Epicardial pulmonary vein isolation has become an increasingly used therapy for medically resistant atrial fibrillation. The purpose of the present study was therefore to evaluate if epicardial pulmon...

Increased rates of atrial fibrillation recurrence following pulmonary vein isolation in overweight and obese patients.

Catheter ablation is common for patients with symptomatic, drug-refractory atrial fibrillation (AF). Obesity is a known risk factor for incident AF. The impact of obesity on AF ablation outcomes is in...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Narrowing of the PULMONARY VEIN.

An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.

A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.

A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
