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...

En bloc Left Pulmonary-Vein and Appendage Isolation in Thoracoscopic Surgery for Atrial Fibrillation.

We evaluated the safety and rhythm-control effectiveness in en bloc isolation of the left pulmonary vein (PV) and appendage conducted as part of the thoracoscopic procedure for bilateral PV isolation,...

Optimal Lesion Size Index to Prevent Conduction Gap during Pulmonary Vein Isolation.

A novel real-time lesion size index (LSI) that incorporates contact force (CF), time, and power has been developed for safe and effective catheter ablation. We evaluated the optimal LSI to eliminate g...

Long-term symptom improvement and patient satisfaction after AV-node ablation vs. pulmonary vein isolation for symptomatic atrial fibrillation: results from the German Ablation Registry.

We aimed to compare patient characteristics and outcome of patients who had either undergone pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) or AV-node ablation (AVN) to control AF-related symptoms.

The Duration of the Amplified Sinus-P-Wave Identifies Presence of Left Atrial Low Voltage Substrate and Predicts Outcome After Pulmonary Vein Isolation in Patients With Persistent Atrial Fibrillation.

Left atrial (LA) low-voltage substrate (LVS) potentially slows intra-atrial conduction, which might identify patients at risk for arrhythmia recurrence following pulmonary vein isolation (PVI).

High-Power and Short-Duration Ablation for Pulmonary Vein Isolation: Biophysical Characterization.

This study sought to examine the biophysical properties of high-power and short-duration (HP-SD) radiofrequency ablation for pulmonary vein isolation.

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.
