Aims: Efforts to reduce radiation exposure during catheter ablation procedures have included the use of various technological measures. Significant results have been achieved to the point where near lead-free procedures in routine clinical practice has become a realistic goal. The integration of MediGuide technology [non-fluoroscopic catheter visualization technology (NFCV)] and three-dimensional electroanatomical mapping is one of the methods developed in response to radiation reduction initiatives...

Aims: The long-term outcomes of left atrial appendage electrical isolation (LAAEI) in patients with non-paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) have corroborated the significant role of the LAA in this arrhythmia. We sought to investigate the incremental benefit of LAAEI in patients undergoing catheter ablation for persistent AF or long-standing persistent AF (LSPAF). Methods and results: A systematic review of Medline, Cochrane, and Embase for all the clinical studies in which assessment LAAEI in non-paroxysmal AF patients was performed...

Aims: Rotor mapping and ablation have gained favour over the recent years as an emerging ablation strategy targeting drivers of atrial fibrillation (AF). Their efficacy, however, has been a topic of great debate with variable outcomes across centres. The aim of this study was to systematically review the recent medical literature to determine the medium-term outcomes of rotor ablation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) and persistent atrial fibrillation (PeAF). Methods and results: A systematic search of the contemporary scientific literature (PubMed and EMBASE) was performed in August 2017...

Aims: Achieving block across linear lesions is challenging. We prospectively evaluated radiofrequency (RF) linear ablation at the roof and mitral isthmus (MI) using point-by-point contiguous and optimized RF lesions. Methods and results: Forty-one consecutive patients with symptomatic persistent AF underwent stepwise contact force (CF)-guided catheter ablation during ongoing AF. A single linear set of RF lesions was delivered at the roof and posterior MI according to the 'Atrial LINEar' (ALINE) criteria, i...

The emerging technology of optogenetics uses optical and genetic means to monitor and modulate the electrophysiological properties of excitable tissues. While transforming the field of neuroscience, the technology has recently gained popularity also in the cardiac arena. Here, we describe the basic principles of optogenetics, the available and evolving optogenetic tools, and the unique potential of this technology for basic and translational cardiac electrophysiology. Specifically, we discuss the ability to control (augment or suppress) the cardiac tissue's excitable properties using optogenetic actuators (microbial opsins), which are light-gated ion channels and pumps that can cause light-triggered membrane depolarization or hyperpolarization...

Aims: We have recently shown that a contact force (CF)-guided ablation protocol respecting region-specific criteria of lesion contiguity and lesion depth ('CLOSE' protocol) is associated with high incidence of acute durable pulmonary vein (PV) isolation (PVI) and a high single-procedure arrhythmia-free survival at 1 year. In the present study, we compared efficiency, safety, and efficacy of 'CLOSE'-guided PVI to conventional CF-guided PVI (CONV-CF). Methods and results: Fifty consecutive paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) patients underwent PV encircling using a CF-sensing catheter targeting an interlesion distance (ILD) ≤6 mm and ablation index (AI) ≥400 and ≥550 at posterior and anterior wall ('CLOSE' group)...

Aims: Real-time contact force (CF)-sensing radiofrequency ablation catheter for treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) allows optimization of electrode-tissue contact, which correlates with long-term success. This prospective, multicentre observational registry assessed the real-world clinical effectiveness of a CF-sensing catheter for ablation of drug-refractory PAF. Methods and results: Patients were followed-up at 3, 6, and 12 months after ablation...

There are major challenges ahead for clinicians treating patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The population with AF is expected to expand considerably and yet, apart from anticoagulation, therapies used in AF have not been shown to consistently impact on mortality or reduce adverse cardiovascular events. New approaches to AF management, including the use of novel technologies and structured, integrated care, have the potential to enhance clinical phenotyping or result in better treatment selection and stratified therapy...

Aims: Tachycardia mediated by septal accessory pathways (AP) and atypical atrioventricular nodal re-entry (AVNRT) require careful electrophysiologic evaluation for differential diagnosis. We aim to describe the differential behaviour of local ventriculo-atrial (VA) intervals which predicts the tachycardia mechanism. Methods and results: The local VA intervals at the para-Hisian septum were measured under three different situations: (i) tachycardia; (ii) sustained entrainment from the right ventricular apex (RVA); and (iii) continuous pacing from the RVA during sinus rhythm...

The purpose of this patient survey was to analyse the knowledge, experiences, and attitudes regarding cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) in patients with pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), or cardiac resynchronization devices. Of the 1644 patients with CIEDs from seven European countries, 88% were over 50 years of age. Most patients (90%) knew what device they were implanted with and felt sufficiently informed about the indications for therapy. As many as 42% of patients needed additional information on the battery replacement and limitations in physical activity...

Aims: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the gold standard for defining myocardial substrate in 3D and can be used to guide ventricular tachycardia ablation. We describe the feasibility of using a prototype magnetic resonance-guided electrophysiology (MR-EP) system in a pre-clinical model to perform real-time MRI-guided epicardial mapping, ablation, and lesion imaging with active catheter tracking. Methods and results: Experiments were performed in vivo in pigs (n = 6) using an MR-EP guidance system research prototype (Siemens Healthcare) with an irrigated ablation catheter (Vision-MR, Imricor) and a dedicated electrophysiology recording system (Advantage-MR, Imricor)...

Aims: Right bundle branch block (RBBB) typically presents with only delayed right ventricular activation. However, some patients with RBBB develop concomitant delayed left ventricular (LV) activation. Such patients may show a specific electrocardiographic (ECG) pattern resembling RBBB in the precordial leads in association with an insignificant S-wave in lateral limb leads (atypical RBBB). We therefore postulated that the ECG pattern of atypical RBBB might be able to identify a subgroup of patients likely to respond to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)...
