INTRODUCTION: During the SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 pandemic, the global health system needed to review important processes involved in daily routines such as outpatient activities within the hospital, including follow-up visits of implantable cardiac electronic devices (CIEDs) carried out in office. The aim of this study is to describe our 3.5 years of real-world experience of a full remote CIED follow-up, evaluate the success rate of remote transmissions, and verify the adopted organizational model...

INTRODUCTION: Esophageal safety following radiofrequency (RF) left atrial (LA) linear ablation has not been established. To determine the esophageal safety profile of LA linear RF lesions, we performed systematic esophagogastroduodenoscopy in all patients with intraesophageal temperature rise (ITR) ≥ 38.5°C. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between December 2021 and July 2023, a total of 200 consecutive patients with atrial tachyarrhythmia (ATA) underwent linear ablation with posterior dome (roof or floor) or posterior mitral isthmus line transection...

INTRODUCTION: Left bundle branch area pacing is an alternative to biventricular pacing. In this study, we aim to summarize the available evidence on the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of left bundle branch block area pacing (LBBAP). OBJECTIVES: The study summarizes the available evidence on the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of left bundle branch block area pacing (LBBAP). BACKGROUND: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) reduced mortality and hospitalizations in heart failure (HF) patients with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤ 35% and concomitant LBBB...

INTRODUCTION: The unique safety profile of pulsed field ablation (PFA) has made pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) + left atrial posterior wall (LAPW) ablation promising for treating persistent atrial fibrillation (PerAF). The goal of this study was to assess long-term freedom from atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and atrial tachycardia (AF/AFL/AT), as well as the safety and feasibility of LAPW PFA using multipolar, pentaspline Farawave catheter. METHODS: Retrospective observational study at a single institution...

INTRODUCTION: According to current guidelines, pulmonary vein isolation as first-line therapy should be considered for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), however, optimal timing of the procedure is still unknown in patients with heart failure (HF). We aimed to evaluate the effect of early catheter ablation (CA) in patients with HF and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) below 50%. METHODS: We analyzed data from a structured registry comprising 227 patients with paroxysmal or persistent AF and HF with LVEF < 50% who underwent radiofrequency CA between 2015 and 2022...

BACKGROUND: Mitral annular flutter (MAF) is the most common left atrial macro-reentrant arrhythmia following catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). The best ablation approach for this arrhythmia remains unclear. METHODS: This single-center, retrospective study sought to compare the acute and long-term outcomes of patients with MAF treated with an anterior mitral line (AML) versus a mitral isthmus line (MIL). Acute ablation success, complication rates, and long-term arrhythmia recurrence were compared between the two groups...

INTRODUCTION: This study sought to elucidate the impact of vein of Marshall (VOM) chemical ablation on atrial fibrillation (AF) drivers by investigating the changes in CARTOFINDER mappings before and after VOM chemical ablation in patients with persistent AF. METHODS: This study included 23 consecutive patients undergoing catheter ablation for long-persistent AF (>18 months). VOM chemical ablation was performed following pulmonary vein isolation. CARTOFINDER and AF cycle length (AFCL) maps were created in the left atrium (LA) before and after VOM chemical ablation...

INTRODUCTION: Left bundle branch area (LBBA) pacing (LBBAP) has been proposed as an alternative therapy option in patients indicated for cardiac pacing to treat bradycardia or heart failure. The aim of the study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of LBBAP in patients implanted with a Tendril 2088 stylet-driven lead. METHODS: The international retrospective data collection registry included 11 sites from 5 countries globally. Patients with attempted implants of the Tendril lead in the LBBA were followed for at least 6 months post the implant attempt...

INTRODUCTION: The accuracy of surface ECG algorithms for predicting the origin of outflow tract ventricular arrhythmias (OT-VAs) might be questioned. Intracardiac electrograms recorded at anatomic landmarks could provide new predictive insights. We aim to evaluate the efficacy of a novel criterion utilizing the activation pattern of the coronary sinus (CS) in localizing OT-VAs, including VAs originating from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), endocardial left ventricular outflow tract (Endo-LVOT), and epicardial left ventricular outflow tract (Epi-LVOT)...

INTRODUCTION: Cryoballoon ablation is a safe and efficient rhythm control strategy in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. The impact of time from diagnosis to ablation is unclear. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of timing of first-time cryoballoon ablation on AF recurrence in a nationwide cohort of AF patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: From nationwide registers, all AF patients ≥18 years of age who underwent first-time AF cryoballoon ablation in Denmark from 2012 to 2018 were included...

INTRODUCTION: Both atrial fibrillation (AF) and amyloidosis increase stroke risk. We evaluated the best anticoagulation strategy in AF patients with coexistent amyloidosis. METHODS: Consecutive AF patients with concomitant amyloidosis were divided into two groups based on the postablation stroke-prophylaxis approach; group 1: left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) in eligible patients and group 2: oral anticoagulation (OAC). Group 1 patients were further divided into Gr...

BACKGROUND: Management of atrial fibrillation (AF) in very severe obese patients is challenging. Cryoballoon ablation (CBA) represents an effective rhythm control strategy. However, data in this patient group were limited. METHODS: Highly symptomatic AF patients with body mass index (BMI) ≥ 40 kg/m2 who had failed antiarrhythmic drug therapy and electrocardioversion and failure to achieve targeted body-weight-reduction underwent CBA. RESULTS: Data of 72 very severe obese AF patients (Group A) and 129 AF patients with normal BMI (Group B, BMI < 25 kg/m2 ) were consecutively collected...

INTRODUCTION: Ablation of scar-related reentrant atrial tachycardia (SRRAT) involves identification and ablation of a critical isthmus. A graph convolutional network (GCN) is a machine learning structure that is well-suited to analyze the irregularly-structured data obtained in mapping procedures and may be used to identify potential isthmuses. METHODS: Electroanatomic maps from 29 SRRATs were collected, and custom electrogram features assessing key tissue and wavefront properties were calculated for each point...

INTRODUCTION: Implantable permanent pacemaker function is supported by their energy sources for a mean period of 8.8-12.4 years. We previously published this case of a patient with a normally functioning VVI pacemaker, 31 years after implantation. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this report, we state that the device is still functioning normally 40 years after implantation. The most recent device interrogation revealed pacing threshold of 0.9 V/0.5 ms. Holter monitoring for 24 hours recorded a total of 98...

INTRODUCTION: Reports of comparison with procedural outcomes for implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and pacemaker (PM) transvenous lead extraction (TLE) are old and limited. We sought to compare the safety, efficacy, and procedural properties of ICD and PM TLE and assess the impact of lead age. METHODS: The study cohort included all consecutive patients with ICD and PM TLE in the Cleveland Clinic Prospective TLE Registry between 2013 and 2022. Extraction success, complications, and failure employed the definitions described in the HRS 2017 TLE guidelines...
