Radiofrequency catheter ablation for treatment of bundle branch reentrant ventricular tachycardia: results and long-term follow-up.
TLDR
Seven of 120 consecutive patients with inducible sustained ventricular tachycardia had bundle branch reentrant tachycardsia and underwent percutaneous radiofrequency ablation of the right bundle branch and one patient required no therapy; drug or defibrillator therapy was used in the others. Expand
Localization of the origin of the atrioventricular junctional rhythm induced during selective ablation of slow-pathway conduction in patients with atrioventricular node reentrant tachycardia.
TLDR
It appears that radiofrequency energy-induced atrioventricular junctional beats originate not from the endocardium in contact with the ablating catheter tip but instead appear to exit remotely from the anterior atrial septal region. Expand
Quality of life before and after radiofrequency catheter ablation in patients with drug refractory atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia.
In a retrospective survey of 161 highly symptomatic patients, we found significant improvements in symptoms, patient utility, and use of medical care services after radiofrequency ablation forExpand
Spectrum of electrophysiologic and electropharmacologic characteristics of verapamil-sensitive ventricular tachycardia in patients without structural heart disease.
TLDR
Verapamil-sensitive ventricular tachycardia exhibits properties expected of both a reentrant and triggered arrhythmia, and it is inconsistently dependent on both exogenous catecholamines for induction and intravenous adenosine for termination. Expand
Spectrum off electrophysiologic and electropharmacologic characteristics of verapamil-sensitive ventricular tachycardia in patients without structural heart disease
TLDR
Verapamil-sensitive VT exhibits properties expected of both a reentrant and triggered arrhythmia, and it is inconsistently dependent on both exogenous catecholamines for induction and intravenous adenosine for termination. Expand
Ventricular fibrillation induced by low-energy shocks from programmable implantable cardioverter-defibrillators in patients with coronary artery disease.
TLDR
The results suggest that low-energy cardioversion is associated with a high per-patient risk of VF induction, and the risk is higher in patients with poorer left ventricular function and, possibly, higher cardioversion energy requirement. Expand
Bundle Branch Re-Entrant Ventricular Tachycardia: Novel Genetic Mechanisms in a Life-Threatening Arrhythmia.
TLDR
The investigation into apparent idiopathic BBRVT has identified the first genetic culprits for this life-threatening arrhythmia, providing further insight into its underlying pathophysiology and emphasizing a potential role for genetic testing in this condition. Expand
Multi‐Center, Community‐Based Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices Registry: Population, Device Utilization, and Outcomes
TLDR
The Kaiser Permanente–Cardiac Device Registry is a robust tool to monitor postprocedural patient outcomes and postmarket surveillance of implants and potentially change practice patterns. Expand
Efficacy of adenosine in terminating catecholamine-dependent supraventricular tachycardia.
TLDR
The results show thatAdenosine is equally effective in terminating catecholamine-dependent and independent SVT; higher adenosine doses should not be needed to manage catecholic-dependent SVT. Expand
Multiple Atrioventricular Nodal Pathways in Humans:
TLDR
Several AV nodal pathway physiology can be demonstrated in certain patients with clinical AV reentrant tachycardia, and this research can help clinicians better understand and treat these patients. Expand
