Background: Optimal duration of energy delivery in high-power short-duration (HPSD) ablation to create a durable lesion in atrial fibrillation (AF) is not clear yet. We evaluated the association of...

INTRODUCTION The PRAETORIAN score (PS) was developed to assess the implant position and predict defibrillation success of the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (S-ICD). The main critique moved to the routine use of PS has been its postprocedural timing, that limits its usefulness on procedure guidance. The aim of this proof-of-concept study was to assess the feasibility of an intraprocedural use of PS. METHODS Forty consecutive patients undergoing S-ICD implantation were enrol...

Aims: We studied the impact of atrial fibrillation (AF) presentation on total & cause-specific cardiovascular (CV) mortality & hospitalizations (H) in mild & advanced heart failure (HF) strata as well as HF worsening in the TOPCAT AMERICAS study. Methods: We analyzed 1765 subjects with HF & preserved ejection fraction (pEF) and AF with two AF different presentations at entry: a) Any AF event (remote or ongoing, n=760), to those without any such AF events (n=1005) and b) Ongoing AF on ECG at enro...

BACKGROUND Intracardiac electrogram data remain one of the primary diagnostic inputs guiding complex ablation procedures. However, the technology to collect, process, and display intracardiac signals has known shortcomings and has not advanced in several decades. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate a new signal processing platform, the PURE EP™ system (PURE), in a multi-center, prospective study. METHODS Intracardiac signal data of clinical interest were collected from 51 patient...

Background Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are contraindicated in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and mechanical cardiac valves. However, safety and efficacy are controversial in patients with biological cardiac valves. Objective We report the safety and feasibility of periprocedural and long-term treatment with DOACs in patients with biological valves undergoing ablation for AF. Methods A total of 127 patients with AF and biological cardiac valve undergoing CA on uninterrupted DOAC we...
