Spontaneous initiation of atrial fibrillation by ectopic beats originating in the pulmonary veins.
TLDR
The pulmonary veins are an important source of ectopic beats, initiating frequent paroxysms of atrial fibrillation and these foci respond to treatment with radio-frequency ablation. Expand
Sudden cardiac arrest associated with early repolarization.
TLDR
Among patients with a history of idiopathic ventricular fibrillation, there is an increased prevalence of early repolarization and during a mean (+/-SD) follow-up of 61+/-50 months, defibrillator monitoring showed a higher incidence of recurrent ventricularfibrillation in case subjects with a repolarized abnormality than in those without such an abnormality.

Electrophysiological Breakthroughs From the Left Atrium to the Pulmonary Veins
TLDR
Although PV muscle covers a large extent of the PV perimeter, there are specific breakthroughs from the left atrium that allow ostial PV disconnection by use of partial perimetric ablation. Expand
Electrophysiological end point for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation initiated from multiple pulmonary venous foci.
TLDR
Multiple PV foci are involved in initiation of AF, and elimination of PV muscle conduction is associated with clinical success, and success defined by elimination of AF without drugs was correlated with the procedural end point of the abolition of distal PV potentials. Expand
A focal source of atrial fibrillation treated by discrete radiofrequency ablation.
TLDR
In some patients, the surface ECG pattern of atrial fibrillation is due to a focal rapidly firing source of activity that can be eliminated by discrete radiofrequency energy applications. Expand
Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation in congestive heart failure.
TLDR
Restoration and maintenance of sinus rhythm by catheter ablation without the use of drugs in patients with congestive heart failure and atrial fibrillation significantly improve cardiac function, symptoms, exercise capacity, symptoms and quality of life. Expand
Risk Factors Related to Infections of Implanted Pacemakers and Cardioverter-Defibrillators: Results of a Large Prospective Study
TLDR
This study identified several factors of risk of device infection and confirmed the efficacy of antibiotic prophylaxis in recipients of new or replacement pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators. Expand
Catheter Ablation of Long‐Lasting Persistent Atrial Fibrillation: Critical Structures for Termination
TLDR
This poster focuses on the part of the atrial region that is involved in the beating of the heart and is known to have a role in the maintenance of persistent atrial fibrillation. Expand
Clinical value of fibrillatory wave amplitude on surface ECG in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation
TLDR
Longer AF duration, older age and larger LA size are associated with fine AF amplitude, which predicts procedural termination of arrhyhmia in patients with persistent AF and freedom from AF upon follow-up. Expand
Technique and Results of Linear Ablation at the Mitral Isthmus
TLDR
Catheter ablation of the mitral isthmus results consistently in demonstrable conduction block and is associated with a high cure rate for paroxysmal AF. Expand
