P Sick, T Lewalter
In this article, most of the present or available in the near future left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion devices are discussed in terms of structure of the devices and principle technique for implantation. Thus, the Watchman™ device from Boston, the Amulet™ device from Abbot, the Lambre™ device from Lifetech, the Occlutech® device from Occlutech®, and the WaveCrest® device from Biosense Webster (former Coherex) are discussed. The systems differ in terms of the concept of occlusion. Several devices consist of only one part (Watchman™ and Occlutech®) that is implanted in the body, ending up in the orifice of the LAA...

Lasso catheter (Biosense Webster) is one of the most commonly employed circular mapping catheters during pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) procedure for atrial fibrillation (AF). Although this catheter has greatly facilitated arrhythmia mapping, it can be associated with serious complications. We report a case of a 59-year-old man who underwent PVI procedure for persistent AF. During the procedure, the Lasso catheter inadvertently slipped into the left ventricular cavity and entangled in the mitral valve apparatus...

BACKGROUND: Ablation of cardiac arrhythmias in children and teenagers often necessitates the use of anesthesia, which can suppress ventricular arrhythmias (VAs), making it difficult to map the site of origin using activation time (AT). Pace mapping, a technique employed to assist with VA origin localization, depends on subjective comparison of paced and targeted QRS morphology. We assessed the utility of a quantitative approach to paced QRS to VA morphology matching using the PaSo software (Carto 3, Biosense Webster), to localize the VA site of origin...

Left atrial (LA) volume (LAV) is used for the selection of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) to rhythm control strategies. Calculation of LAV from the LA diameters and areas by two-dimensional (2D) echocardiography may result in significant error. Accuracy of atrial volume assessment has never been studied in patients with long-standing persistent AF (LSPAF) and significant atrial remodeling. This study investigated correlation and agreement between 2D echocardiographic (Simpson method) and electroanatomic (CARTO, Biosense Webster) left and right atrial (RA) volumes (LAV(ECHO) vs...

Luting Liu, Thomas J Webster
Osteoporosis is still a serious issue in healthcare, and will continue to increase due to the aging and growth of the population. Early diagnosis is the key to successfully treating many diseases. The earlier the osteoporosis is diagnosed, the more quickly people can take action to stop bone deterioration. Motivated by this, researchers and companies have begun developing smart in situ bone sensors in order to dramatically help people to monitor their bone mass density (BMD), bone strain or bone turnover markers (BTMs); promptly track early signs of osteoporosis; and even monitor the healing process following surgery or antiresorptive therapy...
