BACKGROUND: A significant number of ventricular tachycardia circuits are located close to the epicardial surface and are amendable to epicardial ablation. Epicardial fat often interferes with substrate mapping and ablation, though little is known regarding the distribution of fat and its fluctuation with the cardiac cycle. METHODS: We studied 40 patients who underwent a 64-slice MDCT in order to describe patterns of epicardial fat distribution, variation during cardiac cycle and clinical predictors of epicardial fat...

OBJECTIVES: We assessed the effectiveness and safety of cryoballoon ablation (CBA) in the Chinese population with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) with a 1-year follow-up and determined the association of early recurrence of atrial tachyarrhythmias (ERAT) with late recurrence (LR). METHODS: A total of 114 patients (age 61±10 years, 78 males) with paroxysmal AF who underwent CBA were consecutively enrolled. After procedures, patients were observed for 3 d with continuous ECG monitoring in the hospital with routine follow-up visits at 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year...

INTRODUCTION: Implantable loop recorder (ILR) insertion has historically been performed in a surgical environment such as the electrophysiology (EP) lab. The newest generation loop recorder (Medtronic Reveal LINQ™) is injectable with potential for implantation in a non-EP lab setting by advanced practice providers (APPs) facilitating improved workflow and resource utilization. We report the safety and efficacy of injectable ILR placement in the ambulatory care setting by APPs. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed including all patients referred for injectable ILR placement from March 2014 to November 2015...

BACKGROUND: 20-30% of patients do not benefit from CRT when the established selection criteria were applied. We hypothesized that a combined assessment of mechanical dyssynchrony, myocardial deformation and diastolic function would identify patients who would benefit most from CRT. METHOD: In 36 CRT patients, clinical evaluation and echocardiography were performed before and after CRT. Patients were classified into 3 subgroups according to their amount of response: echocardiographic responders, clinical responders, and nonresponders...

BACKGROUND: Inflammation has been evidenced as a critical contributable mechanism for the atrial fibrillation (AF) onset and development. As the consistent inflammatory and oxidative marker, the effects of white blood cell (WBC) and its differential on lone atrial fibrillation (LAF) were investigated in the study. METHODS: 126 patients with paroxysmal LAF who scheduled for rhythm control drug therapy and 120 age- and gender-matched subjects in sinus rhythm were included sequentially...

BACKGROUND: Electrophysiology procedures require fluoroscopic guidance, with the associated potentially adverse effects of ionising radiation. Newer fluoroscopy systems have more features that enable dose-reduction strategies. This study aimed to investigate any reduction in radiation dose between an older fluoroscopy system (Philips Integris H5000) and one of the latest systems (Siemens Artis Q), optimised with dose-reduction strategies. METHODS: Radiation dose measures were collected over a two year period in a single electrophysiology laboratory...

We present a case of sudden cardiac arrest seven hours after radiofrequency ablation of the atrioventricular junction for symptomatic permanent atrial fibrillation unresponsive to medical therapy. The Holter monitoring revealed a progressive increasing of QT interval after the procedure, highlighting the repolarization instability after acute changes in heart rates associated with modification of ventricular activation, leading to occurrence of short coupling interval ventricular extra beats and finally to a "Torsade de Pointes"...

All contemporary pacemakers undergo automatic reprogramming upon reaching elective replacement indication due to battery depletion. The majority of such reprogramming will result in changes to both pacing mode and pacing rate. The exact software reprogramming varies considerably among pacemaker manufacturers and may even vary among models of the same manufacturer. Accordingly, it is essential for healthcare providers managing pacemaker patients to have a detailed understanding of the automatic reprogramming seen at elective replacement indication as well as their potential physiological and clinical consequences...

BACKGROUND: Studies have shown that remote monitoring (RPM) of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) is at least comparable to in-clinic follow-up with regard to clinical outcomes and might be cost-effective, yet RPM is not standard clinical practice within Europe. Better insight into the patient perspective on RPM may aid in its acceptance, implementation and reimbursement. This narrative review 1) summarizes existing evidence on the impact of RPM on patient reported outcomes and 2) discusses future directions in examining the patient perspective...

BACKGROUND: Right atrial tachycardia (AT) is common arrhythmia post-surgical valve replacement in patients with rheumatic heart disease (RHD). However, the substrate and the mechanism of left AT in such patients and the ablation efficacy is less known. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-seven RHD patients with AT were enrolled in this study, nine of them (33%) had Left AT. Five and four patients had left AT during the first and second procedure, respectively. A spontaneous scar in the left posterior wall was identified in all patients, and obvious anterior scar in three patients...

BACKGROUND: To broaden the utility of heart rate variability (HRV) in clinical medicine and mass screening, results based on shorter electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings require validation with those based on standard five-minute recordings. We investigated the association between HRV variables obtained from five-minute ECGs with those obtained from ECGs shorter than five minutes. METHODS: Twenty-two participants aged 20 to 69 years underwent five-minute resting ECG recordings in the supine position with natural breathing...
