Antazoline for rapid termination of atrial fibrillation during ablation of accessory pathways.
BACKGROUND AND AIM To assess safety and efficacy of antazoline for termination of atrial fibrillation (AF) occurring during ablation of accessory pathways (AP). METHODS We analyzedExpand
The ventricular tachycardia score: a novel approach to electrocardiographic diagnosis of ventricular tachycardia.
AIMS Electrocardiographic diagnosis of wide QRS complex tachycardia (WCT) continues to be challenging as none one of the available methods is specific for ventricular tachycardia (VT) diagnosis. WeExpand
Extrasystolic beats affect transmural electrical dispersion during programmed electrical stimulation
Background Experimental studies suggest that the electrocardiographic Tpeak–Tend (TpTe) interval reflects transmural dispersion of repolarization (TDR). The genesis and role of the TpTe interval in aExpand
Benign symptomatic premature ventricular complexes: short- and long-term efficacy of antiarrhythmic drugs and radiofrequency ablation.
BACKGROUND There is little data on the long-term efficacy of antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs) and radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in patients with symptomatic premature ventricular complexesExpand
Long‐term prognostic value of an index of myocardial performance in patients with myocardial infarction
Background: The Tei index of myocardial performance (IMP), which combines parameters of both systolic and diastolic ventricular function, is a useful prognostic factor in many clinical settings.
Clinical manifestations of slow coronary flow from acute coronary syndrome to serious arrhythmias.
Slow coronary flow is an angiographic phenomenon characterized by delayed opacification of vessels in the absence of any evidence of obstructive epicardial coronary disease. In this article, weExpand
Risk of left atrial appendage thrombus in patients scheduled for ablation for atrial fibrillation: beyond the CHA2DS2VASc score.
INTRODUCTION Atrial fibrillation (AF) increases the risk of thromboembolic events by promoting clot formation in the left atrial appendage (LAA). Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is routinelyExpand
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators in patients with long QT syndrome: a multicentre study.
BACKGROUND Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy has been proven effective in the prevention of sudden cardiac death, but data on outcomes of ICD therapy in the young and otherwiseExpand
“Rescue” ablation of electrical storm in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy in pregnancy
BackgroundRadiofrequency ablation (RFCA) became a treatment of choice in patients with recurrent ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, and appropriate interventions of implantedExpand
The diagnostic and prognostic value of right ventricular myocardial velocities in inferior myocardial infarction treated with primary percutaneous intervention.
BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) involvement increases mortality and morbidity in inferior myocardial infarction (MI). There are sparse data on the usefulness of pulsed tissue Doppler imaging (TDI)Expand
