Fatty ethanolamide of Bertholletia excelsa triglycerides (Brazil nuts): anti-inflammatory action and acute toxicity evaluation in Zebrafish (Danio rerio)

Based on all the results obtained and the fact that until the dose of 1000 mg/kg was administered orally in zebrafish, it was not possible to determine the LD50, it can be said that AGBe is effective and safe for anti-inflammatory activity.

Cost comparison of radiofrequency modification and ablation of the atrioventricular junction in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation.

The initial charges generated by AV node modification are significantly lower than for AV node ablation in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation, and the modification procedure retains a major cost advantage over ablation during long-term follow-up.

Hemodynamic Deterioration Following Radiofrequency Ablation of the Atrioventricular Conduction System

Hemodynamic deterioration together with progression of mitral regurgitation is a potential complication of ablation of the ACS (up to 7.4%).

Assessment of atrioventricular junction ablation and DDDR mode-switching pacemaker versus pharmacological treatment in patients with severely symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation: a randomized controlled study.

In patients with paroxysmal AF not controlled by pharmacological therapy, Abl+Pm treatment is highly effective and superior to drug therapy in controlling symptoms and improving quality of life.

Symptomatic Improvement After AV Nodal Ablation and Pacemaker Implantation for Refractory Atrial Fibrillation and Atrial Flutter

AV nodal ablation and pacemaker implantation in patients with drug-refractory atrial fibrillation or flutter was associated with significant improvement in presenting symptoms and functional capacity.

Progressive anterior ablation in the coronary sinus region: evidence to support the presence of a 'slow pathway' input in normal patients?

Data suggest that the mechanism of benefit of AV node modification in this population may be through elimination of "slow pathway" tissue in half of patients and nonspecific injury in the remainder.

Implantable Atrial Defibrillators

Preliminary data suggest that atrial defibrillation shocks synchronized to R waves that are not closely coupled are safe, and the shocks are well tolerated if the shock energy is < 1.5 J.

Radiofrequency catheter modification of atrioventricular conduction to control the ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation.

A catheter technique to modify atrioventricular conduction without creating pathologic atriventricular block is feasible in the majority of patients with symptomatic atrial fibrillation and a rapid ventricular rate refractory to drug therapy.
