Although differences in patient sex in heart rate and QT interval have been well characterized, sexual differences in other cardiac electrophysiological properties have not been well defined. The study population consisted of 354 consecutive patients without structural heart disease or preexcitation who underwent clinically indicated electrophysiological(More)
Pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty was performed in 52 patients aged 7 days to 19 years (mean 5.5 years). Mean balloon/anulus ratio was 1.24. Mean right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) systolic pressure gradient was 79.9 +/- 37.3 (x +/- SD) mm Hg before valvuloplasty and 37.2 +/- 29.6 mm Hg (p < 0.001) immediately after the procedure. 33 patients had residual(More)
Radiofrequency current (500 kHz) was delivered by temperature guidance (75 degrees C) over a 30-second period in 10 young piglets with a steerable 6F electrode catheter equipped with a thermistor at the 4 mm tip electrode. Lesions were created at the right atrial aspect of the tricuspid valve anulus, at the left ventricular myocardium under the lateral(More)
Electrophysiological sequelae after creation of atrial myocardial lesions by radiofrequency current (RFC) application have not been studied in vitro. During general anesthesia, a steerable 6 French electrode catheter, equipped with a thermistor at the 4-mm tip electrode, was positioned at the lateral atrial aspect of the tricuspid valve annulus in 5 piglets(More)
