BACKGROUND: Epicardial radiofrequency catheter ablation is currently considered as the therapeutic option of choice in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) and recurrent ventricular tachycardia (VT). We hypothesised that inducibility of VT may guide the ablation strategy and thereby affect long-term results. Additional epicardial ablation was only performed if VT were still inducible after thorough endocardial ablation. METHODS: The objective was to examine an inducibility-guided ablation approach by comparing the long-term results between endocardial and epi-endocardial radiofrequency catheter ablation of VT in a large cohort of patients with ARVD/C...

BACKGROUND: Paroxysmal atrial tachyarrhythmias frequently occur in beta-thalassemia major (β-TM) patients. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the atrial electromechanical delay (AEMD) in a large β-TM population with normal cardiac function and its relationship to atrial fibrillation (AF) onset. METHODS: Eighty β-TM patients (44 men, 36 women), with a mean age of 36.2 ± 11.1 years, and 80 healthy subjects used as controls, matched for age and gender, were studied for the occurrence of AF during a 5-year follow-up, through 30-day external loop recorder (ELR) monitoring performed every 6 months...

PURPOSE: Catheter radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an effective treatment for symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). It has been demonstrated that the multielectrode pulmonary vein ablation catheter (PVAC) has favourable outcomes at 6-12 months post-ablation, but there are only few studies with a long-term follow-up. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 77 consecutive PVAC procedures in our centre, from November 2007 to December 2012. RFA was attempted in patients with symptomatic paroxysmal AF (mean age 58...

PURPOSE: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an established therapeutic option in selected heart failure patients (pts). However, the transvenous left ventricular (LV) lead implantation remains ineffectual in a considerable number of pts. Transapical LV (TALV) lead implantation is an alternative minimally invasive, surgical, endocardial implantation technique. The aim of the present prospective study is to determine the long-term outcome, including the cerebral thromboembolic complications, of pts who underwent TALV lead placement...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate ultra high density-activation sequence mapping (UHD-ASM) for ablating atypical atrial flutters. METHODS: For 23 patients with 31 atypical atrial flutters (AAF), we created UHD-ASM. RESULTS: Demographics age = 65.3 ± 8.5 years, male = 78%, left atrial size = 4.66 ± 0.64 cm, redo ablation 20/23(87%). AAF were left atrial in 30 (97%). For each AAF, 1273 ± 697 points were used for UHD-ASM...

PURPOSE: Radiofrequency catheter ablation of typical atrial flutter can vary largely in duration from patient to patient. The purpose of this work was to determine optimal combination of ablation settings leading to the highest procedural efficacy. METHODS: Our retrospective multivariate analysis comprised 448 patients undergoing atrial flutter ablation with nonirrigated 8-mm catheters at 19 clinical centers. Four procedural variables were included in the prognostic model: preset maximum temperature, preset maximum power, catheter-tip material (gold vs...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the accessory pathway location and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) level in patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. METHODS: We divided 102 WPW syndrome patients with normal left ventricular systolic function into four groups: those with manifest right (MR, n = 14), manifest septal (MS, n = 11), manifest left (ML, n = 30), and concealed (C, n = 47) accessory pathways...

PURPOSE: Achieving complete mitral isthmus (MI) conduction block for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation remains challenging. We hypothesized that transseptal puncture (TSP) at the anteroinferior aspect of the atrial septum (anteroinferior TSP) could shorten the distance to the MI and improve catheter contact and stability, enabling complete MI block. This study investigated the efficacy of anteroinferior TSP for MI ablation in AF patients. METHODS: Three hundred and twenty consecutive patients (mean age: 62 ± 9 years, 84 % male) with persistent AF undergoing AF ablation, including MI ablation, were enrolled...

PURPOSE: New X-ray technology providing new image processing techniques may reduce radiation exposure. The aim of this study was to quantify this radiation exposure reduction for patients during pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation. METHODS: In this retrospective study, 1185 consecutive patients who had undergone de novo pacemaker or ICD implantation during a 2-year period were included. All implantations in the first year were performed using the reference technology (Allura Xper), whereas in the second year, the new X-ray technology (AlluraClarity) was used...

BACKGROUND: Apixaban is a Factor Xa inhibitor increasingly being used for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). Although several studies have been done, the efficacy and safety of apixaban during the peri-procedural period of AF ablation remains unclear. We sought to systematically review pooled data from these various studies to evaluate thromboembolic and bleeding risks in patients undergoing catheter ablation for AF who are treated with apixaban (interrupted and uninterrupted)...

PURPOSE: Atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence after an initial persistent AF ablation procedure is high, frequently resulting in the need for a repeat AF ablation procedure. Guidance on the optimal strategy for repeat procedures is non-existent. The objective of this study was to compare the freedom from recurrent atrial arrhythmia associated with two strategies for repeat persistent AF ablation procedure: (1) pulmonary vein re-isolation alone and (2) non-pulmonary vein LA ablation in addition to pulmonary vein re-isolation...

PURPOSE: The wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is generally used for short periods of sudden cardiac death (SCD) risk; circumstances may occasionally result in prolonged use (over 1 year). The aim of this study was to determine the benefits and risks of prolonged use in patients with systolic heart failure (HF). METHODS: ZOLL's post-market US database included adult patients (≥18 years) with ischemic and/or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM, NICM) and at least 1 year of use...

BACKGROUND: It is not clear whether additional empiric superior vena cava isolation (SVCI) to pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) results in low recurrences of atrial fibrillation. We aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that evaluated role of empiric SVCI in atrial fibrillation ablation. METHODS: We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane, Scopus, and relevant references for RCTs (inception April 15, 2016 without language restrictions) and performed meta-analysis using random effects model...

PURPOSE: Frequent ventricular premature depolarizations (VPDs) may cause cardiomyopathy (VPDCM), which often improves after VPD suppression. This study aimed to evaluate whether ablation of outflow tract ventricular arrhythmias (OT VAs) in patients with VPDCM improves renal in addition to left ventricular (LV) function. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 153 patients with OT VAs and examined VPD burden and LV ejection fraction (LVEF), as well as estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) pre- and post-ablation...

PURPOSE: Left atrial volume (LA) and pulmonary vein (PV) anatomy may potentially relate to technical challenges in achieving stable and effective catheter position in case of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation by means of "one-shot" catheters. The aim of this study was to investigate whether LA volume and PV anatomy, evaluated by computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) prior to ablation, predict acute and midterm outcome of AF ablation by nMARQ™. METHODS: We included 75 patients (mean age 58 ± 11 years, 67 % male) with symptomatic paroxysmal AF...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) frequently complicates chronic kidney disease (CKD). AF treatment is challenging and requires complete pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). Recently, renal sympathetic denervation (RSD) has been reported to reduce AF recurrence when performed alongside PVI. METHODS: A prospective therapeutic study of patients with controlled hypertension and paroxysmal AF was undertaken. Renal function was evaluated using estimated glomerular filtration rate...
