BACKGROUND An abnormal potential (retroPP) from the left posterior Purkinje network has been demonstrated during sinus rhythm (SR) in some patients with idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia (ILVT). We hypothesized that this potential can specifically be identified and be a critical substrate for ILVT. METHODS AND RESULTS In 9 patients with ILVT and 6(More)
AIMS To compare non-gated vs. electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated 64-detector-row computed tomography (MDCT) of the left atrium (LA) for integrated electroanatomic mapping (EAM) in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-nine consecutive patients with paroxysmal AF underwent MDCT prior to pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). All(More)
During recent years, the management of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) has changed, resulting in an increase in early operations and routine administration of nimodipine. Both influenced the indication for transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD). Furthermore, investigations detected discrepancies between Doppler findings and neurological status. In a(More)
AIM Automated, daily Home Monitoring (HM) of pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) patients can improve patient care. Yet, HM introduction to routine clinical practice is challenged by resource allocation for regular HM data review. We tested the feasibility, safety, workload, and clinical usefulness of a centralized HM model consisting(More)
In addition to attacks with the well-known pulsating characteristics of migrainous headache, migraine patients may experience a variety of peculiar pain sensations which are phenomenologically similar to the spontaneous sensations occurring in patients with thalamic disturbances and to the cenesthesias described as basic symptoms in functional psychoses.
