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 studiesExpand

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 extensionExpand

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 papillaryExpand

Contact Electroanatomic Mapping Derived Voltage Criteria for Characterizing Left Atrial Scar in Patients Undergoing Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation
Criteria have not been established for identifying LA scar using electroanatomic mapping (EAM). It is also unclear if voltage criteria using EAM may assist in identifying areas of pulmonary vein (PV)Expand
