Summary

The Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Registry (AFib Ablation Registry™) is designed to assess the prevalence, demographics, management, and outcomes of patients undergoing percutaneous catheter ablation procedures to treat atrial fibrillation (AF).

Description

The Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Registry (AFib Ablation Registry™) is designed to assess the prevalence, demographics, management, and outcomes of patients undergoing percutaneous catheter ablation procedures to treat atrial fibrillation (AF). Patient-level data will be submitted by participating hospitals on a quarterly basis to the American College of Cardiology Foundation's National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR™). The primary aims of the AFib Ablation Registry are to optimize the outcomes and management of patients through the implementation of evidence-based guideline recommendations in clinical practice, facilitate efforts to improve the quality and safety for patients undergoing percutaneous catheter ablation procedures, investigate novel quality improvement methods and provide risk-adjusted assessment of patients for comparison with nationwide NCDR data. The secondary purpose of the AFib Ablation Registry is to serve as a rich source of clinical data to support assessments of short- and long-term safety, comparative and cost effectiveness research, and as a scalable data infrastructure for post market studies.

Reasons for successful clinical outcome following pulmonary vein isolation despite lack of persistent LA-PV conduction block.

The mechanisms of AF induction and maintenance, including those involved in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, are not completely known; this limits our ablation strategies and prevents us from understan...

Correlation of P-wave properties with the size of left atrial low voltage areas in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Left atrial low voltage areas (LVA) are associated with increased recurrence rates of atrial fibrillation (AF) after catheter ablation and can be a potential ablation target during the procedure. Ther...

Cardiac autonomic regulation in patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation.

Ablation procedures for the treatment of atrial fibrillation lead to changes in autonomic heart control; however, there are insufficient data on the possible association of these changes with atrial f...

Plasma FABP4 levels are associated with left atrial fat volume in persistent atrial fibrillation and predict recurrence after catheter ablation.

Imaging techniques have shown the association between left atrial adipose tissue (LAAT) volume and atrial fibrillation (AF) risk.

Current Approach to Surgical Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation.

After 4 decades of innovation, surgical ablation for atrial fibrillation is re-converging on the bi-atrial full Maze procedure as the most effective approach. Contemporary studies suggest that surgica...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.

A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
