Real-time 3D transesophageal echocardiography for the evaluation of rheumatic mitral stenosis.
OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were: 1) to assess the feasibility and reliability of performing mitral valve area (MVA) measurements in patients with rheumatic mitral valve stenosis (RhMS) usingExpand
A comparison of open irrigated and non-irrigated tip catheter ablation for pulmonary vein isolation.
AIMS The relative efficacy and safety of open irrigated tip catheters compared with conventional non-irrigated catheters for pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is unknown. METHODS Forty-eight patientsExpand
Recurrent ischaemic mitral regurgitation post mitral annuloplasty due to suture dehiscence evaluated using real time three dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography.
Ischaemic mitral regurgitation after myocardial infarction results from geometric changes in left ventricular shape and displacement of papillary muscles with resultant tethering and incompleteExpand
Images in cardiovascular medicine. Real-time 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography in the evaluation of a patient with concomitant double-orifice mitral valve, bicuspid aortic valve, and
A 35-year-old woman was referred for further cardiovascular assessment after an incidental finding of a systolic murmur and symptoms of exertional chest tightness. On examination, she had anExpand
Computed tomography‐guided in vivo cardiac orientation and correlation with ECG in individuals without structural heart disease and in age‐matched obese and older individuals
The cardiac axis in a structurally normal heart is influenced by a number of factors. We investigated the anatomical and electrical cardiac axes in middle‐aged individuals without structural heartExpand
Percutaneous pulmonary vein isolation for treatment of atrial fibrillation
Background:  Transvenous catheter ablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation is an evolving technique.
Amorous overheating?
In March, 2009, a 54-year-old man attended the pacemaker clinic for routine review. He described a 20-month history of intermittent episodes of rigors and fevers (temperatures up to 39·3C) associatedExpand
