Idiopathic Right Ventricular Arrhythmias With Changes in the QRS Morphology After Ablation.

Mohamad N El Moheb, Marwan M Refaat,

Idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias (VA) is defined as premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) or ventricular tachycardias (VT) that occur in the absence of structural heart disease. Endocardial radiofrequency (RF) ablation is often curative for idiopathic VA. The success of the procedure depends on the ability to localize the abnormal foci accurately. This ... Read more >>

Update on high-power short-duration ablation for pulmonary vein isolation.

Jie Qiu, Yan Wang, Dao W Wang, Mei Hu, Guangzhi Chen,

Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is the cornerstone of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. However, this procedure remains complex and time-consuming, and the recurrence of AF after PVI is still unsatisfactory. Current technologies have improved our knowledge of the association between radiofrequency lesion creation and ablation parameters (power and duration), which triggered ... Read more >>
