Thirty-seven patients with atrial flutter were studied with catheter mapping and radiofrequency ablation. Uncommon atrial flutter occurred in 20 out of 37 (54%) patients. Atrial endocardial mapping showed two types of uncommon atrial flutter. In 15 patients (group I) it was characterized by a single clockwise circuit whereas in 5 patients (Group II) it was(More)
Intraaortic balloon pumping salvages a substantial number of patients who fail to be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass after an open heart operation. Patients with severe peripheral vascular disease may require ascending aortic balloon pump insertion. We describe a simple method of direct aortic puncture for intraaortic balloon pump placement using(More)
BACKGROUND Although percutaneous left ventricular assist devices (pLVADs) facilitate mapping and ablation of hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (VT), there is limited data whether clinical outcomes are improved. We sought to retrospectively compare the outcomes of patients undergoing scar-related VT ablation with and without pLVAD support. (More)
