Gene context of Catheter Ablation

  • BACKGROUND: The relation of tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy to AFI and its response to direct catheter ablation are unknown [25].
  • OBJECTIVES: In the present prospective controlled study, we measured blood levels of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in patients undergoing radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation (RFA), and we sought to investigate the degree of myocardial injury incurred by the application of RF energy and determine its procedural correlates [26].
  • Occlusion of LCX During RF Catheter Ablation [27].
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 26 consecutive patients with AT originating from the RPVs or PRA underwent detailed atrial endocardial mapping and successful radiofrequency catheter ablation [28].
  • Sudden death in hemochromatosis after closed-chest catheter ablation of the atrioventricular junction [29].
