AIMS Ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) remains a difficult and time-consuming procedure with varying degrees of success. We evaluated the long-term effects of a novel approach for(More)
AIMS Recently, a multi-electrode catheter system using phased radiofrequency (RF) energy was developed specifically for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation: the pulmonary vein ablation catheter (PVAC),(More)
AIMS We evaluated the effect of pulmonary vein (PV) anatomical characteristics on PV isolation (PVI) and long-term efficacy of ablation with phased radiofrequency (RF) energy and pulmonary vein(More)
AIMS In patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) the pattern of atrial fibrillation (AF) episodes and the total AF burden, may be related to the efficacy of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI).(More)
BACKGROUND Early arrhythmia recurrences after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for atrial fibrillation (AF) are accepted as part of the blanking period. Their relevance for long-term efficacy is not(More)
IntroductionThe pulmonary vein ablation catheter (PVAC) is designed for pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). Electrical reconnection of pulmonary veins is believed to result in AF recurrence. The purpose(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder characterised by disabling motor and non-motor signs. Current medical therapies can partially alleviate these symptoms, but are also(More)
