Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder in United States, characterised by rapid and irregular beating of both the atria resulting in the similar ventricular response. While rate and rhythm control using pharmacological regimens remain the primary management strategies in these patients, radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is rapidly rising as an alternative modality of treatment. Increase in the incidence of RFCA has shed light on complications associated with this proc...

Background The surgical maze procedure is highly effective in treating symptomatic atrial fibrillation but may have detrimental effects on left atrial (LA) contractile function and compliance. Objective To describe a series of patients presenting with symptomatic pulmonary hypertension due in part to LA dysfunction after surgical maze procedures. Methods This report includes 9 patients who (1) presented to Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) between 2008 and 2012 with unexplained dyspnea and pulmonary h...

Objective To assess the prevalence of elevated systemic right ventricular (sRV) end-diastolic pressure and pulmonary arterial hypertension in adults with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) who have undergone atrial switch operation. Methods Forty-two adults (aged ≥18 years) with complete TGA and atrial switch palliation undergoing cardiac catheterisation between 2004 and 2018 at Mayo Clinic, MN, were identified. Clinical, echocardiographic and invasive haemodynamic data were abstracted fr...
