Radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation guided by electroanatomic mapping systems is an effective therapy for atrial fibrillation. However, it may be affected by respiration movements. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of respiratory gating on procedural parameters in patients undergoing catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF).(More)
BACKGROUND Despite significant improvements in cardiac output and functional capacity with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), incidence of sudden cardiac death still remains high. Reversal of physiological myocardial activation sequence during epicardial pacing increases the transmural dispersion of repolarization (TDR). The aim of this study was to(More)
OBJECTIVES This study examines university graduation rates among individuals with congenital heart disease (CHD) in comparison to their healthy peers. The effect of disease severity, type of surgery, and timing of surgery on graduation rate was also evaluated. STUDY DESIGN One hundred forty-five male patients with CHD at military age were enrolled in the(More)
OBJECTIVE The floating wire technique is a special technique for solving interventional problems in aorta- ostial lesions. There are no long-term data in the literature for the floating wire technique in right aorto-ostial lesions. METHODS One hundred twenty six patients were retrospectively analyzed in this study. All of these patients had a critical(More)
PATIENT Female, 56. FINAL DIAGNOSIS Isolated adult interrupted aortic arch. SYMPTOMS Headache • hypertension • left ventricular hypertrophy. MEDICATION -. CLINICAL PROCEDURE -. SPECIALTY Surgery. OBJECTIVE Congenital defects/diseases. BACKGROUND Interrupted aorta is a rare congenital malformation defined as the lack of continuity between the(More)
Congenital anomalies of the venous system are a challenge for cardiac catheterization and radiofrequency ablation. This article describes ablation of atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia performed solely through the azygos continuation in a patient with inferior vena cava interruption.
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study is to evaluate hypertensive patients who are supposedly under control according to office blood pressure measurements with 24 hour ambulatuar blood pressure monitoring for determining their actual controlled hypertension rate. In addition, we investigate the adherence ratio of blood pressure measurements to current(More)
Lead dislocations of pacemaker systems are reported in all and even in high-volume centers. Repeated procedures necessitated by lead dislocations are associated with an increased risk of complications. We investigated a minimal invasive method for right atrial and ventricular lead repositioning. The minimal invasive method was applied only when passive(More)
INTRODUCTION The bioresorbable vascular scaffold system (BVS) is the latest fully absorbable vascular therapy system that is used to treat coronary artery disease. The BVS has been used in different coronary lesion subsets, such as acute thrombotic lesions, bifurcation lesions, ostial lesions and lesions originating from bypass grafts. However, data about(More)
