Computed Tomographic Analysis of the Anatomy of the Left Atrium and the Esophagus: Implications for Left Atrial Catheter Ablation
Background—During left atrial (LA) catheter ablation, an atrioesophageal fistula can develop as a result of thermal injury of the esophagus during ablation along the posterior LA. No in vivo studies… Expand
Infarct architecture and characteristics on delayed enhanced magnetic resonance imaging and electroanatomic mapping in patients with postinfarction ventricular arrhythmia.
BACKGROUND Delayed enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DE-MRI) can be used for the exact assessment of myocardial infarct scar. Electroanatomic (EA) mapping can identify the subendocardial extension… Expand
Ventricular arrhythmias originating from a papillary muscle in patients without prior infarction: a comparison with fascicular arrhythmias.
BACKGROUND The papillary muscles (PAP) have been implicated in arrhythmogenesis, largely based on theoretical considerations and experimental studies. Few clinical studies have described papillary… Expand
Gender-related changes in aortic geometry throughout life.
- B. Rylski, B. Desjardins, W. Moser, J. Bavaria, R. Milewski
