Atrial Fibrillation Ablation, 2011 Update: The State of the by Andrea Natale, Antonio Raviele

By Andrea Natale, Antonio Raviele

This concise textual content provides most sensible practices for all facets of atrial traumatic inflammation ablation as defined within the re-creation of the VeniceChart overseas Consensus record, that's provided at the side of the biannual Venice Arrhythmias convention. as well as discussing the newest in a-fib ablation examine, this 2011 replace covers all of the key components of treatment and sufferer administration, together with:

• options and technologies
• Procedural endpoints
• sufferer administration pre-, peri- and post-ablation
• Prevention and remedy of complications
• Definition of luck and long term results

With contributions from the world’s famous proposal leaders during this box, this publication is a hugely beneficial resource of data not just for experts in electrophysiology, but in addition for basic cardiologists, fellows in cardiology and others attracted to this dynamic and more and more very important topic.

The presence of one, two, or three PV variants in the same patient has been observed in 34%, 12%, and 2% of the cases, respectively [12]. 2). Usually the sleeve is thickest at the inferior wall of the superior PVs and at the superior wall of the inferior PVs, although significant variations can be observed in individual cases. Frequently, muscular fibers are found circumferentially around the entire LA–PV junction but the muscular architecture is complex, with frequent segmental disconnections and abrupt changes in fiber orientation that may act as anatomical substrates for local reentry.
