Characteristics of Phrenic Nerve Injury During Pulmonary Vein Isolation Using a 28‐mm Second‐Generation Cryoballoon and Short Freeze Strategy
The double‐stop technique is safe, and immediate active deflation following a CMAP decrease appears to be essential for faster PNI recovery. Expand
Estimation of the origin of ventricular outflow tract arrhythmia using synthesized right-sided chest leads.
Synthesized right-sided chest lead electrocardiography may be useful for estimating the origin of ventricular outflow tract arrhythmia. Expand
Impact of atrial high-rate episodes on the risk of future stroke.
Embolic stroke events are common in Japanese patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices and an enlarged left atrium are the risk factors of embolic stroke in this population. Expand
Identification of Left Atrial Ganglionated Plexi by Dense Epicardial Mapping as Ablation Targets for the Treatment of Concomitant Atrial Fibrillation
The purpose of this study was to identify the location of the left atrial GPs based on dense epicardial mapping during a maze procedure in patients with concomitant AF. Expand
Prospective survey of implantable defibrillator shock anxiety in Japanese patients: Results from the DEF‐Chiba study
Patient‐reported outcomes of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), such as those with shock anxiety, have emerged as important endpoints that are related to quality of life (QOL), but theyExpand
Pulmonary vein isolation in patients with a left common pulmonary vein: Comparison between second-generation cryoballoon and radiofrequency ablation.
Cryoballoon ablation was similarly as effective as radiofrequency ablation in patients with LCPVs, and morphological evaluations aided in predicting procedural difficulty in LCPV isolations. Expand
Impact of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation on long-term clinical outcomes in patients with heart failure.
Catheter ablation of AF could be one of the important therapeutic options in the management of patients with HF combined with AF regardless of the type of HF. Expand
Gastric hypomotility after second-generation cryoballoon ablation-Unrecognized silent nerve injury after cryoballoon ablation.
Second-generation cryoballoon ablation is associated with an increased incidence of silent periesophageal nerve injury even using short freeze times, and anatomical information aids identifying high-risk populations. Expand
Thromboembolic Risks of the Procedural Process in Second-Generation Cryoballoon Ablation Procedures: Analysis From Real-Time Transcranial Doppler Monitoring
A significant number of MESs and SCE/silent cerebral lesion occurrences were observed during second-generation cryoballoon ablation procedures; however, the majority occurred during phases with a high probability of gaseous emboli. Expand
Pulmonary Vein Stenosis After Second‐Generation Cryoballoon Ablation
Evaluating the incidence, severity, and characteristics of PVST after second‐generation cryoballoon ablation found no significant differences between first‐generation and second-generation ablation. Expand
