OBJECTIVES To compare the acute success and short-term follow-up of ablation of atrial flutter using 8 mm tip radiofrequency (RF) and cryocatheters. METHODS Sixty-two patients with atrial flutter were randomized to RF or cryocatheter (cryo) ablation. Right atrial angiography was performed to assess the isthmus. End point was bidirectional isthmus block on(More)
A baffle puncture is a challenging procedure but can be safely done using direct visualization of the region of interest. To our knowledge, however, it has never been performed in a patient with dextrocardia. We present a 62-year-old male with dextrocardia, right isomerism, congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, persistent left-sided(More)
AIMS Left ventricular (LV) lead implantation is feasible using remote magnetic navigation of a guidewire (Stereotaxis, St Louis, MO, USA). A novel software that performs a three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of vessels based on two or more angiographic views has been developed recently (CardiOp-B system, Paeion Inc., Haifa, Israel). The objective of this(More)
A comparative study of the spontaneous fluctuations with the results of the glycerol test leads us to the conclusion that the observation and measurement of these fluctuations during a follow-up, give us a more reliable evaluation of the fluctuant characteristic of the hearing than does the glycerol test. Indeed the positivity of the latter is highly(More)
