Risk factors for arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death late after repair of tetralogy of Fallot: a multicentre study
Arrhythmia and sudden death are important late sequelae for patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, with pulmonary regurgitation being the predominant haemodynamic lesion for patients with ventricular tachycardia andudden death. Expand
Catheter ablation of accessory pathways, atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia, and the atrioventricular junction: final results of a prospective, multicenter clinical trial. The Atakr
The findings of this study may serve as a guide to clinicians considering therapeutic options in patients who are candidates for ablation. Expand
Guidelines for clinical intracardiac electrophysiological and catheter ablation procedures. A report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines
"Guidelines for Clinical lntracardiac Electrophysiological and Catheter Ablation Procedures" was approved by the American Heart Association SAC/Steering Committee in May 1995 and the American CollegeExpand
Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and supraventricular tachycardia during infancy: management and follow-up.
The records of 90 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome who presented with supraventricular tachycardia in the first 4 months of life were reviewed, and four infants died of cardiac causes during the mean follow-up period of 6.5 years. Expand
Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation for Tachyarrhythmias in Children and Adolescents
Radiofrequency catheter ablation has been used extensively to treat refractory supraventricular tachycardia in adults, but few data are available on its safety and efficacy in children and adolescents. Expand
Supraventricular tachycardia in children: clinical features, response to treatment, and long-term follow-up in 217 patients.
It is concluded that long-term status was difficult to predict, but SVT was present in fewer patients whose age at onset was less than 4 months and in those with unoperated CHD, and early recurrence was not a poor prognostic sign. Expand
Predictors of fluoroscopy time and estimated radiation exposure during radiofrequency catheter ablation procedures.
Factors identified as independent predictors of fluoroscopy duration included patient age and sex, the success or failure of the ablation procedure, and the institution at which theablation was performed. Expand
Prevention of sudden death after repair of tetralogy of Fallot: treatment of ventricular arrhythmias.
The majority of sudden deaths after repair of tetralogy of Fallot have been presumed to be due to ventricular arrhythmia; however, it remains to be demonstrated that antiarrhythmic medication reducesExpand
