Die kryoballonbasierte Vorhofflimmerablation wird neben der Hochfrequenzstromablation in den aktuellen Leitlinien zur Vorhofflimmertherapie empfohlen und hat sich in der klinischen Routine vieler Zentren fur die Index-Pulmonalvenenisolation als ein Standardverfahren etabliert. Durch ein systematisches Vorgehen kann eine sichere, vereinfachte und oftmals dauerhafte Pulmonalvenenisolation erreicht werden. Dieser Ubersichtartikel bietet einen praktischen Leitfaden fur alle Arbeitsschritte einer kry...

In the current guidelines on treatment of atrial fibrillation, cryoballoon-based catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation is recommended in addition to radiofrequency ablation and has become established as a standard procedure in the clinical routine of many centers for index pulmonary vein isolation. A safe, simplified and often durable pulmonary vein isolation can be achieved by a systematic approach. This review article provides a practical guide for all steps of cryoballoon-based pulmonary v...

Data on catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias (VA) are scarce in patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) and current evidence predominantly consists of case reports with outdated LVAD. This prospective observational study reports our experience in terms of catheter ablation of VAs in patients with novel 3rd generation LVADs. Between 2018 and 2020, nine consecutive patients undergoing a total number of ten ablation procedures for VAs were analyzed. The mean duration between L...

Ein 65-jahriger Patient verspurt 4 Tage nach komplikationsloser Pulmonalvenenisolation Schluckstorungen; weitere Symptome, insbesondere Fieber oder schweres Krankheitsgefuhl bestehen nicht. Trotz prophylaktischer Therapie kommt es zur Entwicklung einer schweren Komplikation, die nur aufgrund engmaschiger Kontrolle fruhzeitig erkannt und behandelt werden kann.

Diabetes mellitus (DM) plays a crucial role in the regulation of atrial fibrillation (AF). This study aimed to evaluate the outcome of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) using a single-shot device in patients with AF and DM. A total of 531 consecutive patients undergoing initial cryoballoon (CB)-guided PVI were evaluated. Two hundred eighty-one patients (53%) suffered from paroxysmal AF (PAF; mean age 51 ± 23.2 years, 26% female), 250 patients (48%) from persistent AF (PERS; 64 ± 10.0 years old, 30%...

Atrial arrhythmias after heart transplantation are common and usually originate from reentrant circuits inside the donor and recipient atria. A case is presented of macroreentrant atrial tachycardia with a reentry circuit incorporating preserved electrical conduction from the donor and recipient right atria. An invasive electrophysiological study including high-density electroanatomical mapping with a multipolar catheter was performed during tachycardia. A reentry circuit with an area of slow co...

Remote magnetic navigation (RMN) facilitates ventricular arrhythmia (VA) ablation. This study aimed to evaluate the long-term efficacy of RMN-guided ablation for ventricular tachycardia (VT) and premature ventricular contractions (PVC). A total of 176 consecutive patients (mean age 53.23 ± 17.55 years, 37% female) underwent VA ablation for PVC (132 patients, 75%) or VT (44 patients, 25%). The cohort consisted of 119 patients (68%) with idiopathic VA, 31 (18%) with ischemic (ICM), and 26 (15%) wi...
