AIMS The present study investigated whether several ECG markers of ventricular repolarization are associated with ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation (VT/VF) inducibility in subjects with type 1 ECG pattern of Brugada syndrome (BS). METHODS AND RESULTS The clinical data of 23 individuals (19 males, age 42.69 +/- 14.63) with spontaneous (n = 10) or(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary vein (PV) isolation is a promising new treatment for atrial fibrillation (AF). We hypothesized that isolation of large areas around both ipsilateral PVs with verification of conduction block is more effective than the isolation of each individual PV. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 110 patients, 67 with paroxysmal AF and 43 with(More)
BACKGROUND We report on 4 patients (aged 57 to 77 years; 3 men) who developed drug-refractory, repetitive ventricular tachyarrhythmias after acute myocardial infarction (MI). All episodes of ventricular arrhythmias were triggered by monomorphic ventricular premature beats (VPBs) with a right bundle-branch block morphology (RBBB). METHODS AND RESULTS Left(More)
BACKGROUND Ostial pulmonary vein (PV) isolation by radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation can cure patients with atrial fibrillation (AF); however, this procedure carries the risk of PV stenosis. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of a new mapping and navigation technique using a multipolar basket catheter (BC) for PV isolation in patients(More)
The proteasome is responsible for the generation of most epitopes presented on MHC class I molecules. Treatment of cells with IFN-γ leads to the replacement of the constitutive catalytic subunits β1, β2, and β5 by the inducible subunits low molecular mass polypeptide (LMP) 2 (β1i), multicatalytic endopeptidase complex-like-1 (β2i), and LMP7 (β5i),(More)
We report on the characteristics and the ablation procedure of a focal atrial tachycardia originating from the non-coronary aortic cusp. The electrophysiological features of the tachycardia included: (i) incessant pattern; (ii) easy induction and termination by atrial stimulation; (iii) earliest right atrial activation at the para-hisian area; and (iv)(More)
An efficient approach in combinatorial chemistry is the synthesis of one-bead-one-compound peptide libraries. In contrast to synthesis and functional screening, which is performed in a largely automated manner, structure determination has been frequently laborious and time-consuming. Here we report an approach for de novo sequencing of peptides on single(More)
The arrhythmogenic mechanisms of atrial fibrillation (AF) are still not well understood. Increased atrial fibrosis is a structural hallmark in patients with persistent AF. We assessed the electrogram signature rotational activity and their spatial relationship to low voltage areas in patients with persistent AF. Computer simulations implicating(More)
