Renal Artery Sympathetic Denervation by Catheter Ablation After Pulmonary Vein Isolation (PVI) for Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

Impact of a prolonged interatrial conduction time for predicting the recurrence of atrial fibrillation after circumferential pulmonary vein isolation of persistent atrial fibrillation.

There are some cases that are difficult to cure with only circumferential pulmonary vein isolation (CPVI) of persistent atrial fibrillation (PerAF). Recently, prolonged interatrial conduction times (I...

Authors present the technique called 'abdominoplasty with concurrent circumferential liposuction' where the whole trunk is addressed as a single aesthetic unit.

Effectiveness of Renal Denervation in Resistant Hypertension: A Meta-Analysis of 11 Controlled Studies.

Development of a novel isolation unit for entomophthoralean fungi.

Entomophthoralean fungi are important natural enemies of pests and highly co-evolved with their hosts. However, successful isolation of entomophthoralean fungi can be difficult due to their fastidious...

Efficacy of Sole Pulmonary Vein Isolation in Patients with Non-paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation without Significant Left Atrium Scar.

Catheter ablation strategies for non-paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (NPAF) are in varied forms. The mechanisms that circumferential pulmonary vein isolation (CPVI) alone could achieve success in some ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical incision on the FASCIA. It is used to decompress compartment pressure (e.g. in COMPARTMENT SYNDROMES; circumferential burns and extremity injuries) or to release contractures (e.g. in DUPUYTREN'S CONTRACTURE).

The segregation of patients with communicable or other diseases for a specified time. Isolation may be strict, in which movement and social contacts are limited; modified, where an effort to control specified aspects of care is made in order to prevent cross infection; or reverse, where the patient is secluded in a controlled or germ-free environment in order to protect him or her from cross infection.

Restriction of freedom of movement of individuals who have been exposed to infectious or communicable disease in order to prevent its spread; a period of detention of vessels, vehicles, or travelers coming from infected or suspected places; and detention or isolation on account of suspected contagion. It includes government regulations on the detention of animals at frontiers or ports of entrance for the prevention of infectious disease, through a period of isolation before being allowed to enter a country. (From Dorland, 28th ed & Black's Veterinary Dictionary, 17th ed)

The separation and isolation of tissues for surgical purposes, or for the analysis or study of their structures.

Methodologies used for the isolation, identification, detection, and quantitation of chemical substances.
