Extracorporeal shock wave application (ESWA) has been successfully used for years in routine clinical management of plantar fasciitis. So far no clinical trails have shown the efficiency in placebo-controlled protocols. This paper presents an overview of conservative and operative treatment modalities with respect to their efficacy. Results of a prospective(More)
BACKGROUND The use of intracardiac electrograms to guide atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation has yielded conflicting results. OBJECTIVES The authors evaluated the usefulness of spatiotemporal dispersion, a visually recognizable electric footprint of AF drivers, for the ablation of all forms of AF. METHODS The authors prospectively enrolled 105 patients(More)
Extrakorporale Stoßwellen werden seit Jahren in Europa zur Behandlung von Insertionstendinopathien wie der plantaren Fasziitis mit klinischem Erfolg eingesetzt. Bislang existierte jedoch kein Wirksamkeitsnachweis anhand placebokontrollierter Studien. Der Beitrag gibt eine Übersicht über konservative und operative Behandlungsmethoden und beleuchtet den(More)
We report the case of an 82-year-old man presenting with ventricular fibrillation (VF) occurring acutely after atrioventricular node (AVN) ablation. This patient had severe valvular cardiomyopathy, chronic atrial fibrillation (AF), and underwent prior to the AVN ablation a biventricular implantable cardiac defibrillator positioning. The VF was successfully(More)
Enzyme replacement therapy consistently improves cardiac function in infantile and juvenile onset patients with Pompe disease and cardiomyopathy, but is apparently not effective in preventing rhythm disorders, an emerging cardiac phenotype in long term survivors. In patients with late onset Pompe disease cardiomyopathy is an exceptional finding while heart(More)
Aim Axillary vein access for pacemaker implantation is uncommon in many centres because of the lack of training in this technique. We assessed whether the introduction of the axillary vein technique was safe and efficient as compared with cephalic vein access, in a centre where no operators had any previous experience in axillary vein puncture.
