AIMS To assess safety, feasibility and short term outcome of pulmonary vein (PV) isolation in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) with a cryoballoon. METHODS We consecutively treated 57 patients with a double lumen 23 or 28 mm cryoballoon. The acute results, complications and follow-up over the first three months were analysed, using a comprehensive and(More)
INTRODUCTION Body surface mapping (BSM) can be used to identify the site of earliest endocardial activation of ventricular tachycardias (VTs). The multielectrode QRS morphology during VT is determined by both the site of earliest activation and the subsequent spread of electrical activation through the ventricles. This study investigated the relationship(More)
BACKGROUND If drug refractoriness to paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) occurs, arrhythmia surgery that involves channelling and the exclusion of specific atrial areas can abolish atrial fibrillation. The purpose of this study was to establish the effectiveness and safety of maze III surgery to abolish PAF. METHODS AND RESULTS Surgery was performed in(More)
