Irbesartan and Adhesion Molecules in AF

Primary Objective: The aim of the study is to assess that blocking the angiotensin II type 1 receptor reduces systemic levels of oxidative stress markers and adhesion molecules by more than 25% compared to placebo in patients with persistent/permanent atrial fibrillation. Primary Target Parameter: The primary target parameter is defined …

Cerebral Artery Stenosis Coronary Artery Disease and Arrhythmia

There are many reports about the association of coronary artery disease (CAD) and cerebral artery stenosis (CAS), which had been proved to induce stroke and cognition decline after the revascularization including coronary bypass surgery (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention. Perfusion defect on nuclear brain scan is also noted to correlate …

A Prospective Randomized Study Comparing Radiofrequency Energy With Cryoenergy

Transvenous pulmonary vein (PV) isolation using radiofrequency energy is an effective treatment for atrial fibrillation (1-4). However, rare but potentially life threatening complications such as thromboembolism (5), PV stenosis (5-10), left atrium-oesophageal fistula (11) and inflammatory syndromes (12) have been described. In preliminary studies an alternate approach using cryoenergy induces …

Pulmonary Vein (PV) -Isolation: Arrhythmogenic Vein(s) Versus All Veins

BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation ablation procedures typically involve isolation of all pulmonary veins (PVs), yet the need for such an extensive ablation strategy in all patients is unclear. OBJECTIVE: We conduct a randomized study comparing the safety and effectiveness of two interventional ablation techniques for treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation: the …

Cardioversion vs. Catheter Ablation for Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

This randomized study compares two treatment strategies in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation: Cardioversion vs. catheter ablation. Cardioversion is a low risk standard treatment option for patients with persistent atrial fibrillation. However, mid- and long term efficacy (regarding the maintenance of sinus rhythm) is low. Catheter ablation is an invasive …

Magnesium to Reduce Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Shocks and Improve Patient's Quality of Life.

Not all ICD shocks are for ventricular arrhythmias. Some patients receive shocks when they have arrhythmias in the atria (top chambers of the heart). These are called inapproriate shocks, but the pain is similar to the pain patients feel with an appropriate shock (a shock for a ventricular arrhythmia). This …

Arrhythmia Restart Prevention and RatE STabilization in Atrial Fibrillation

Due to anti-arrhythmic pharmacological drugs failure to suppress atrial fibrillation (AF), interest towards preventive pacing treatments is increasing. The importance of this option in the panoply of the preventive tools is fully justified, only by considering the insufficiency, the complexity, or the poor reproducibility of the other non-pharmaceutical approaches. Preventive …
