This study is designed to investigate whether pulmonary vein isolation(PVI) plus stepwise additional ablation approach based on the degree of low voltage area versus PVI only can improve p...
A three-pronged approach to evaluate long term success of non-paroxysmal ablation when using a: 1. specified low voltage-directed with pulmonary vein isolation (LD+PVI) approach compare...
The investigators prospectively investigate the differences between contact-force guided pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) and conventional pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysma...
Aim of the present prospective, single-centre study is to determine the outcome after pure PVI using HeartLight™ in 100 patients with different extents of LA-LVA. The latter will be ass...
The primary objective of this investigation is to compare the efficacy of two different AF ablation strategies in older patients with paroxysmal AF: Pulmonary vein isolation alone versus a...
The right ventricular (RV) septal unipolar voltage (UV) for predicting left ventricular (LV) septal scar wall thickness (WT) remains to be elucidated.
The aim of this network meta-analysis is to assess the impact of strut thickness on clinical outcomes in patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. We searched Medline/PubMed and perfo...
FFR-guided PCI was associated with better clinical outcomes regarding the reduction of myocardial infarction and major adverse cardiac events. The clinical benefit of FFR-guided PCI was achieved with ...
The objectives of this cross-sectional pilot study were threefold: to identify regions of cortical thickness that differentiate chronic migraine (CM) from controls, to assess group differences in inte...
Subjects with bipolar disorder suffering of a depressive episode are frequently misdiagnosed as unipolar depression, being important studies assessing the differential diagnosis between bipolar and un...
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
A prenatal ultrasonic measurement of the thickness or translucent area below the SKIN in the back of the fetal NECK, or nape of the neck, during the first 11-14 weeks of gestation (PREGNANCY TRIMESTER, FIRST). Abnormal thickness or nuchal translucent measurements resulting from fluid collection, is associated with increased risks of CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES. (Nicolaides et al., 1992)
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
