Feasibility and performance of catheter ablation with zero-fluoroscopy approach for regular supraventricular tachycardia in patients with structural and/or congenital heart disease.

Aleksandra Morka, Janusz Śledź, Karol Deutsch, Bartosz Ludwik, Magdalena Zagrodzka, Lesław Szydłowski, Sebastian Stec,

Patients with structural heart disease (SHD) are more difficult to ablate than those with a structurally healthy heart. The reason may be technical problems. We compared periprocedural data in unselected patients (including SHD group) recruited for zero-fluoroscopy catheter ablation (ZF-CA) of supraventricular arrhythmias (SVTs).Consecutive adult patients with atrioventricular nodal reentry ...

The "double dunk" technique for a right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit implantation during the Norwood procedure reduces unintended shunt-related events.

Tomasz Mroczek, Julita Sacharczuk, Rafał Żurek, Aleksandra Morka, Aleksandr Szypulski, Jerzy Jarosz, Maciej Śniechowski, Janusz H Skalski,

BACKGROUND:The introduction of a right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit (RVPAc) during the Norwood procedure (NP) for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) resulted in a higher survival rate, but also in an increased number of unintended pulmonary and shunt-related interventions. AIM:To analyse how several modifications employed in RVPAc implantation during ... Read more >>

A simplified approach for evaluating sustained slow pathway conduction for diagnosis and treatment of atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia in children and adults.

Janusz Sledz, Michal Labus, Mariusz Mazij, Monika Klank-Szafran, Dariusz Karbarz, Bartosz Ludwik, Jacek Kusa, Karol Deutsch, Leslaw Szydlowski, Adrian Mscisz, Jerzy Spikowski, Aleksandra Morka, Tomasz Kameczura, Aleksandra Swietoniowska-Mscisz, Sebastian Stec,

PURPOSE:During incremental atrial pacing in patients with atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia, the PR interval often exceeds the RR interval (PR > RR) during stable 1:1 AV conduction. However, the PR/RR ratio has never been evaluated in a large group of patients with pacing from the proximal coronary sinus and after isoproterenol challenge. ... Read more >>

Perventricular Implantation of Melody Valve in Child With Pulmonary Hypertension After a Potts Shunt.

Tomasz Mroczek, Marcin Demkow, Tomasz Moszura, Aleksandra Morka, Janusz Skalski,

The Potts operation is a surgical option for the treatment of children with suprasystemic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Its positive hemodynamic effect may be obliterated by pulmonary valvar insufficiency. We describe a case in which the Potts shunt was followed by perventricular Melody valve implantation in the pulmonary position in ... Read more >>

Aleksandra Morka, Leslaw Szydlowski, Ewa Moric-Janiszewska, Boguslaw Mazurek, Grazyna Markiewicz-Loskot, Sebastian Stec,

Compared to conventional echocardiography, spectral tissue Doppler imaging (s-TDI) allows more precise evaluation of diastolic cardiac function. The purpose of this study was to conduct s-TDI to analyze the slow movement of the left ventricular (LV) myocardium in adolescents with systemic arterial hypertension (HT) and to determine whether patients with ...

Karol Deutsch, Sebastian Stec, Piotr Kukla, Aleksandra Morka, Marek Jastrzebski, Artur Baszko, Maciej Pitak, Janusz Sledz, Kamil Fijorek, Mariusz Mazij, Bartosz Ludwik, Marcin Gubaro, Leslaw Szydlowski,

To establish an appropriate treatment strategy and determine if ablation is indicated for patients with narrow QRS complex supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), analysis of a standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is required, which can differentiate between the 2 most common mechanisms underlying SVT: atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT) and orthodromic atrioventricular reentry ...
