Clinical implications of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in patients with vasospastic angina and lethal ventricular arrhythmia.
OBJECTIVES The present study was performed to investigate the clinical implications of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) in patients with vasospastic angina (VSA) resuscitated fromExpand

Prevalence and electrophysiological characteristics of typical atrial flutter in patients with atrial fibrillation and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
AIMS Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the important underlying diseases of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the prevalence and electrophysiological characteristics of typicalExpand

Long-term efficacy of catheter ablation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in patients with Brugada syndrome and an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator to prevent inappropriate shock therapy.
BACKGROUND In patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) and Brugada syndrome (BrS), the long-term efficacy of catheter ablation for preventing inappropriate shock therapy due toExpand

Ablation of swallowing-induced atrial tachycardia affects heart rate variability: a case report
A 47-year-old man underwent slow pathway ablation for slow-fast atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia. Following the procedure, he felt palpitations while swallowing, and swallowing-inducedExpand

Macroreentrant Atrial Tachycardia in Patients without Previous Atrial Surgery or Catheter Ablation: Clinical and Electrophysiological Characteristics of Scar‐Related Left Atrial Anterior Wall Reentry
Scar‐Related Left Atrial Anterior Wall Reentry. Introduction: Macroreentrant atrial tachycardia (MRAT) has been described most frequently in patients with prior cardiac surgery. Left atrialExpand

Development of Nonpulmonary Vein Foci Increases Risk of Atrial Fibrillation Recurrence After Pulmonary Vein Isolation.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this paper was to clarify the impact of nonpulmonary vein foci (NPVF) on atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence after pulmonary vein (PV) isolation. BACKGROUND NPVF areExpand

Peri-Mitral Atrial Tachycardia Using the Marshall Bundle Epicardial Connections.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine whether re-entrant circuits were associated with the ligament of Marshall (LOM). BACKGROUND Peri-mitral atrial tachycardias (PMATs) followingExpand

Prophylactic catheter ablation for induced monomorphic ventricular tachycardia in patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators as primary prevention.
AIMS Prophylactic catheter ablation (CA) has been established to reduce the incidence of appropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy (anti-tachycardia pacing or shock) inExpand

Fragmented QRS predicts cardiovascular death of patients with structural heart disease and inducible ventricular tachyarrhythmia.
BACKGROUND Fragmented QRS (fQRS) can predict cardiac events, and inducible ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation (VT/VF) is a known high-risk factor for arrhythmic death. However, whether fQRS is aExpand

Transient sinus node dysfunction following sinus node artery occlusion due to radiofrequency catheter ablation of the septal superior vena cava-right atrium junction.
We performed catheter ablation to septal superior vena cava (SVC)-right atrium (RA) junction rapid firing in a 57-year-old man with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. He later experienced transientExpand
