Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) and symptomatic monomorphic PVCs originating from the region of the right and left outflow tracts are increasingly treated by radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation. Technical difficulties in catheter manipulation to access these outflow tract areas, very accurate mapping and reliable catheter stability are key issues(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)
To compare the acute success and short-term follow-up of ablation of atrial flutter using 8 mm tip radiofrequency (RF) and cryocatheters. 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 multiple criteria. A(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)
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)
