A relation between ablation area and outcome of ablation using 28-mm cryoballon ablation: Importance of carina region.

Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) with wide antral ablation leads to better outcomes in atrial fibrillation ablation therapy, but the ablation area is relatively small during cryoballoon ablation. The pr...

Outcomes of persistent and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation ablation: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Several techniques have been utilized for the ablation of persistent (P) and long-standing persistent (LsP) atrial fibrillation (AF); however, the best approach of substrate ablation remains poorly de...

First experience with zero-fluoroscopic ablation for supraventricular tachycardias using a novel impedance and magnetic-field-based mapping system.

Zero- and near-zero-fluoroscopic ablation techniques reduce the harmful effects of ionizing radiation during invasive electrophysiology procedures. We aimed to test the feasibility and safety of a zer...

Voltage and pace-capture mapping of linear ablation lesions overestimates chronic ablation gap size.

Conducting gaps in lesion sets are a major reason for failure of ablation procedures. Voltage mapping and pace-capture have been proposed for intra-procedural identification of gaps. We aimed to compa...

Use of bipolar radiofrequency catheter ablation in treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

Background Arrhythmia management is a complex process involving both pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. Radiofrequency ablation is the pillar of non-pharmacological arrhythmia treatme...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Procedures used for the targeted destruction of the mucous membrane lining of the uterine cavity.

Partial or total removal, ablation, or destruction of the cerebral cortex; may be chemical. It is not used with animals that do not possess a cortex, i.e., it is used only with mammals.

The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to destroy tissue. It is sometimes used in conjunction with but is distinct from INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses argon plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.
