This clinical investigation is a prospective, multicenter, single arm clinical evaluation utilizing the multi-electrode radiofrequency balloon catheter and the multi-electrode circular dia...
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...
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine the long-term efficacy of radiofrequency catheter ablation in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation.
Current guidelines recommend radiofrequency catheter ablation of the cavotricuspid isthmus as treatment for symptomatic/drug-refractory atrial flutter, in spite of the fact that recurrence...
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...
The presence of inducible atrial tachyarrhythmia after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) during radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) may indicate the necessity ...
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...
Rashkind balloon atrial septostomy (BAS) can be challenging in infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and small atrial septal defects (ASD).
Laser balloon (LB) and cryoballoon (CB) ablation are two balloon-based catheter ablation technologies used for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation in recent years. However, the efficacy and the safety o...
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.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
