PURPOSE We present the preliminary results of the STRA-MI-VT Study (NCT04066517), a spontaneous, phase Ib/II study, designed to prospectively test the safety and efficacy of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in patientswith advanced cardiac disease and intractable ventricular tachycardia (VT). METHODS Cardiac computed tomography (CT) integrated by electroanatomical mapping was used for substrate identification and merged with dedicated CT scans for treatment plan preparation. A single 25-Gy ...

PURPOSE Cardiac pacing devices can detect and monitor atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATA) which increase the risk of thromboembolic complications. The aim of this study was to compare (1) two different atrial leads and (2) standard and optimized settings to detect ATA and reject far-field R-wave signal (FFRW). METHODS This was a prospective, randomized multi-center trial comparing St. Jude Medical OptiSense lead (tip-to-ring spacing 1.1 mm) and Tendril lead (tip-to-ring spacing 10.0 mm), having progra...

BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation of accessory pathways (AP) with bidirectional conduction may be challenging due to issues related to anatomical course or location. OBJECTIVE: We describe an alternative electro-anatomical mapping technique which aims at depicting the entire anatomic course of the AP from the atrial toward the ventricular insertion in order to guide catheter ablation. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients with confirmed bidirectional AP conduction and at least one previous ablation p...

The incidence of atrial flutter following radiofrequency ablation of supraventricular tachycardias is poorly understood. Ablation of atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia may place patients at risk of flutter because ablation of the slow pathway is in close proximity to the cavotricuspid isthmus. This study aims to evaluate the risk of atrial flutter following ablation of atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia relative to ablation of other supraventricular tachycardias. A single-center ...

Efficacy of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for atrial fibrillation (AF) decreases as left atrial (LA) volume increases. However, surgical AF ablation with unknown efficacy is being performed in patients with a giant LA (GLA). We determined efficacy of thoracoscopic AF ablation in patients with compared to without a GLA. Patients underwent thoracoscopic PVI with additional left atrial ablations lines (in persistent AF) and were prospectively followed up. GLA was defined as LA volume index (LAVI) ...

To evaluate nature of AV nodal activation in patients with AVNRT using high density electro-anatomic mapping (HD-EAM). HD-EAM was created in 30 patients with AVNRT from the triangle of Koch (ToK) in sinus rhythm (SR). Isochronal late activation maps (ILAM) were created. EAMs were analyzed for slow pathway (SPW) and fast pathway (FPW) activation. A pivot point (PP) was defined where FPW and SPW collided and pivoted back to the AV node (AVN). Conduction was assessed with programmed extrastimulus (...

Our previous study confirmed that not only force but also the catheter contact angle substantially impacted the contact area and its morphology. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to further investigate the relationship between the catheter contact area and the dimensions of the ablation lesion area as a function of catheter contact angle and force in radiofrequency catheter ablation. The radiofrequency catheter ablation test was performed for 5 contact angles and 8 contact forces at a fixed abl...
BACKGROUND Permanent junctional reciprocating tachycardia (PJRT) is an infrequent form of atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardia. We report the clinical and electrophysiological properties of PJRT and outcomes of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RCA) in a large group of patients. METHODS We included 62 patients with the diagnosis of PJRT. Radiofrequency catheter ablation was performed in all. RESULTS Location of accessory pathway was right posteroseptal in 37 (59,7%) cases, right midseptal in ...

Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a life-threatening condition, which usually implies the need of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator in combination with antiarrhythmic drugs and catheter ablation. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) represents a common form of therapy in oncology, which has emerged as a well-tolerated and promising alternative option for the treatment of refractory VT in patients with structural heart disease. In the STRA-MI-VT trial, we will investigate as primary endpoi...
