  • Journal: JACC. Clinical electrophysiology
  • Treatment Used: Catheter Ablation
  • Number of Patients: 348
  • Published —
In this study, researchers evaluated the safety and effectiveness of catheter ablation using a porous tip contact force-sensing catheter for the treatment of persistent atrial fibrillation.
Latest Advance
Study

  • Journal: JACC. Clinical electrophysiology
  • Treatment Used: Ablation
  • Number of Patients: 0
  • Published —
This study study examined sex-specific differences in atrial fibrillation (heart quivering; AF) and its treatment with ablation.
Latest Advance
Study
  • Condition: Atrial Fibrillation
  • Journal: JACC. Clinical electrophysiology
  • Treatment Used: Contact Force-guided Radiofrequency Ablation Versus Cryoballoon Ablation
  • Number of Patients: 346
  • Published —
In this study, researchers compared the effectiveness of contact force-guided radiofrequency ablation versus cryoballoon ablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation.
Latest Advance
Study
  • Condition: Emergency Department Patients with Acute Atrial Fibrillation
  • Journal: Lancet (London, England)
  • Treatment Used: Electrical vs. Pharmacological Cardioversion
  • Number of Patients: 396
  • Published —
This study compared pharmacological cardioversion followed by electrical cardioversion (drug-shock), and electrical cardioversion alone (shock-only) in patients with acute atrial fibrillation (heart quivering) treated in the emergency department.
Latest Advance
Study
  • Condition: Atrial Fibrillation (AF)
  • Journal: Circulation
  • Treatment Used: Contact Force-Guided Radiofrequency Ablation (CF-RF) vs. 4-Minute Cryoballoon Ablation (Cryo-4) vs. 2-Minute Cryoballoon Ablation (Cryo-2)
  • Number of Patients: 346
  • Published —
This study evaluated the safety and effectiveness of contact force-guided radiofrequency ablation (CF-RF) versus 4-minute cryoballoon ablation (Cryo-4) versus 2-minute cryoballoon ablation (Cryo-2) for the treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation (an abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating; AF).
Latest Advance
Study
  • Condition: Atrial Fibrillation With Renal Dysfunction
  • Journal: The Canadian journal of cardiology
  • Treatment Used: Variability in Non-Vitamin K Antagonist Oral Anticoagulants Dose Adjustment
  • Number of Patients: 831
  • Published —
This study evaluated the agreement in non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) dosing between 3 equations in a large population of patients with atrial fibrillation and moderate chronic kidney disease.
Latest Advance
Study
  • Condition: Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (AF)
  • Journal: Heart rhythm
  • Treatment Used: Systematic "Pill-in-the-Pocket" Approach
  • Number of Patients: 80
  • Published —
This study assessed the clinical utility of a protocolled "pill-in-the-pocket" antiarrhythmic drug (PIP-AAD) approach within contemporary practice in the treatment of patients with symptomatic, sustained atrial fibrillation (heart quivering; AF).
