BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillatihon(AF) prevalence increases with age. Aging affects the substrate properties of the left atrium (LA) and the outcomes of catheter ablation for treating AF. We investigated the AF trigger distribution and catheter ablation outcomes in patients of different ages with AF. METHODS 1585 patients with AF (1181 paroxysmal and 404 non- paroxysmal AF) who had undergone catheter ablation were enrolled. The patients were divided into young (20-40 years-old, n = 175), middle-age...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the optimal idarucizumab (dabigatran antagonist) usage strategy for patients with acute pericardial tamponade receiving uninterrupted dabigatran during catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS Ten patients presenting acute pericardial tamponade while receiving uninterrupted dabigatran during catheter ablation for AF in Beijing Anzhen Hospital from January 2019 to July 2020 were enrolled and retrospectively analyzed. A "wait and see" strategy of idarucizuma...

BACKGROUND Additional benefit of cryoballoon left atrial roof line ablation (CB-RA) beyond cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation (CB-PVI) is suggested in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (PsAF). We sought to investigate the feasibility of CB-RA for PsAF and to determine the ablation area. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-three PsAF patients (67[58.5-75.5] years, 36 men, 11 longstanding PsAF) underwent CB-PVI. Subsequently, 44(83.0%) out of 53 patients underwent additional CB-RA. Voltage maps...
Right ventricular (RV) resynchronization therapy (CRT) with stimulation electrode implantation in the latest activation area guided by a high-density electroanatomic activation map was successfully performed in a patient with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rToF), severe pulmonary regurgitation (PR), and severe dysfunction and dilatation of the right ventricle. An improvement in his clinical condition and intraventricular synchrony was achieved. There is a mechanical-electrical interaction in the ...

The termination of tachycardia may provide important clues toward the mechanism of the tachycardia and that close vigilance may clinch the diagnosis before proceeding to other pacing maneuvers.

BACKGROUND Multisite LV stimulation therapy allows for stimulation of 2 different left ventricular pacing vectors within a single LV lead and may improve responsiveness to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). This study prospectively evaluated the safety and efficacy of the MultiPole Pacing (MPP) feature in CRT non-responder patients. METHODS AND RESULTS CRT non-responders with a standard CRT-D indication were eligible for enrollment into the MPP Sub-Study. Patient status, NYHA classificatio...

BACKGROUND Cryoballoon ablation (CRYO) for pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) in atrial fibrillation (AF) has become an established treatment option as alternative for radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA). As symptom relief is still the main indication for PVI, quality of life (QoL) is a key outcome parameter. This review summarizes the evidence about the evolution of QoL after CRYO. METHODS A search for clinical studies reporting QoL outcomes after CRYO was performed on PUBMED and COCHRANE. A to...

BACKGROUND Cavotricuspid isthmus ablation in typical atrial flutter (AFL) restores sinus rhythm in 95% of patients, which may lead to the discontinuation of oral anticoagulation during follow-up. Therefore, we aimed to systematically review the clinical impact of oral anticoagulation in the incidence of thromboembolic events (TE) after typical AFL ablation. METHODS We searched for controlled studies evaluating the impact of anticoagulation in the incidence of TE in patients submitted to AFL abla...

BACKGROUND Although frequently considered a benign condition, new evidence has shown that mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is associated with complex ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of the relevant studies to investigate the parameters that could identify MVP patients at higher risk of experiencing complex VAs. METHOD We performed a systematic literature search of PubMed for potential studies between January 2...
