A total of 150 patients will be randomized to perform catheter ablation or not in a 2:1 fashion in selected patients with Brugada-related symptoms (Ablation+ICD arm 105 patients vs ICD onl...
This study evaluate the effectiveness of targeted radiofrequency ablation of the myocardial areas affected by a dysfunction of the membrane ionic channels responsible of the Brugada Syndro...
Although for many years the Brugada syndrome has been labelled as a purely electrical disease in the structurally normal heart, the evolution of imaging techniques has enabled the discover...
This study represents an extension of a previous study (NCT02641431) on the acute and long-term benefit of epicardial ablation on elimination of both BrS-ECG pattern and VT/VF inducibility...
There is a need to compare the efficacy of PVI versus PVI plus catheter ablation, which includes ablation of complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE) and linear lesions in the same ...
There is limited evidence that Brugada syndrome (BrS) is due to SCN1B variants (BrS5). This gene may be inappropriately included in routine genetic testing panels for BrS or sudden arrhythmic death sy...
Avoiding propofol in patients with Brugada syndrome has been suggested because of the theoretical risk of provoking ventricular arrhythmias, although propofol may be selected for conscious sedation du...
Brugada syndrome (BS) is an inherited disease characterized by a coved-type ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads and increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD), in the absence of struc...
Although elderly patients have been included in published series of catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF), clinical benefit and safety remain still less defined in this population. A retrospe...
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) of the cavo-tricuspid isthmus (CTI) is a common treatment for atrial flutter (AFL). However, achieving bi-directional CTI conduction block may be difficult, par...
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
An autosomal dominant defect of cardiac conduction that is characterized by an abnormal ST-segment in leads V1-V3 on the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM resembling a right BUNDLE-BRANCH BLOCK; high risk of VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA; or VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION; SYNCOPAL EPISODE; and possible sudden death. This syndrome is linked to mutations of gene encoding the cardiac SODIUM CHANNEL alpha subunit.
Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.
A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
