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

By Andrea Natale, Antonio Raviele

This concise textual content provides top practices for all features of atrial traumatic inflammation ablation as defined within the new edition of the VeniceChart foreign Consensus record, that is provided along with the biannual Venice Arrhythmias convention. as well as discussing the newest in a-fib ablation learn, this 2011 replace covers all of the key parts 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 well-known suggestion leaders during this box, this booklet is a hugely helpful resource of knowledge not just for experts in electrophysiology, but in addition for normal cardiologists, fellows in cardiology and others attracted to this dynamic and more and more very important topic.

1 lists abnormalities of the thorax or of the cardiovascular system that may result in displacement of the fossa ovalis. 3), it can become quite thick especially in its superior, posterior, and inferior margins. Indeed, in some patients, the epicardial fat may increase the thickness to 1–2 cm in the normal heart. TSP through the limbus is less likely to be satisfactory since the tissue thickness can hinder needle penetration or maneuverability of the transseptal sheath after puncture. Furthermore, septal thickness of >2 cm on noninvasive imaging is increasingly reported as indicative of lipomatous hypertrophy, with incidence up to 8% on echocardiography.
