BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to investigate whether the type of arrhythmia recurrence after ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) has an impact on the maintenance of sinus rhythm after the repeat ablation procedure. METHODS AND RESULTS Included were 78 consecutive patients (82% men; mean age, 61±10 years; mean left atrial diameter, 47±4(More)
In this paper, we will present a joint network/channel decoding algorithm JNCD. This algorithm is used especially on cellular network. In our study, we consider a small network that consists of two transmitters (Mobile Station MS), one relay and one receiver (Base Station BS). We will consider the uplink between MS1, MS2 and BS. The performances of this(More)
METHODS 17 physicians, experienced in transvenous lead removal, performed a lead extraction manoeuvre of an ICD lead on a torso phantom. They were advised to stop traction only when further traction would be considered as harmful to the patient or when--based on their experience--a change in the extraction strategy was indicated. Traction forces were(More)
Background—Cryoablation has emerged as an alternative to radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for the treatment of atrioventricular (AV) nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). The purpose of this prospective randomized study was to test whether cryoablation is as effective as RFCA during both short-term and long-term follow-up with a lower risk of(More)
