BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated that radiofrequency isolation of the pulmonary veins (PVI) is an effective treatment for symptomatic atrial fibrillation. Based on these positive results, non- pharmacological therapy has been incorporated in the guidelines for drug refractory atrial fibrillation, resulting in an increased popularity. The(More)
AIMS Although cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is an established treatment to improve cardiac function, a significant amount of patients do not experience noticeable improvement in their cardiac function. Optimal timing of the delay between atrial and ventricular pacing pulses (AV delay) is of major importance for effective CRT treatment and this(More)

AIMS Cryoballoon pulmonary vein (PV) isolation in patients with atrial fibrillation has proven to be effective in short-term and long-term follow-up. To visualise the PV anatomy, pre-ablation contrast pulmonary venography is commonly performed. Three-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) overlay is a new technique creating a live 3D image of the left(More)
