Long-Term Outcomes of Near-Zero Radiation Ablation of Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia: A Comparison With Fluoroscopy-Guided Approach.

JACC Clin Electrophysiol 2021 Apr 21. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Cardiology and Arrhythmology Clinic, University Hospital "Umberto I-Lancisi-Salesi," Marche Polytechnic University, Ancona, Italy; Department of Clinical, Special and Dental Sciences, University Hospital "Umberto I-Lancisi-Salesi," Marche Polytechnic University, Ancona, Italy.

Objectives: This study aimed to assess the long-term outcomes of minimally fluoroscopic approach (MFA) compared with conventional fluoroscopic ablation (ConvA) in terms of recurrences of arrhythmia and long-term complications.

Background: Catheter ablation (CA) of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) with an MFA, under the guidance of electroanatomic mapping (EAM) systems, results in a significant reduction in exposure to ionizing radiations without impairing acute procedural success and complication rate. However, data regarding long-term outcomes of MFA compared with ConvA are lacking. Read More

Changing Concepts and Current Definition of Majocchi's Granuloma.

Mycopathologia 2020 Feb 11;185(1):187-192. Epub 2019 Jul 11.

Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Dermatophytic granuloma characterized by perifollicular granulomatous inflammation was first described by Domenico Majocchi and was later named after him, Majocchi's granuloma (MG). Although the initial description was related to a dermatophyte Trichophyton tonsurans, later reports linked MG to non-dermatophytes (Phoma, Aspergillus, Malbranchea), which led to a confusion of disease patterns caused by cutaneous pathogens and general opportunistic microorganisms. Furthermore, several causative agents of MG described in the literature were not confirmed as such. Read More

Acute outcome after a single cryoballoon ablation: Comparison between Arctic Front Advance and Arctic Front Advance PRO.

Pacing Clin Electrophysiol 2019 07 15;42(7):890-896. Epub 2019 May 15.

Heart Rhythm Center, Centro Cardiologico Monzino, IRCCS, Milano, Italy.

Background: The novel fourth-generation cryoballoon (CB4) potentially allows for enhanced catheter maneuverability and more frequent capture of pulmonary vein (PV) potentials which can be used to monitor real-time PV isolation (PVI). The aim of our study is to compare the acute procedural endpoints between the CB4 and second-generation cryoballoon (CB2).

Methods: A single-center retrospective chart review was used to examine 50 consecutive patients with drug-refractory atrial fibrillation undergoing CB4-based PVI. Read More

Heart Rhythm Center, Centro Cardiologico Monzino IRCCS, Milan, Italy; Department of Clinical Sciences and Community Health, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

Background: The combined left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) and cryoenergy pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) procedure has been proven safe and effective in managing stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF), although most data refer to procedures performed using radiofrequency as the main energy source.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate long-term follow-up of patients with AF undergoing concomitant LAAC and cryoenergy PVI.

Methods: Patients undergoing LAAC and cryoballoon PVI at our institution were enrolled. Read More

a Department of Dermatology, Kocaeli University School of Medicine , Kocaeli , Turkey.

The aetiology of pigmented purpuric dermatoses is unclear. Recent studies speculate about contact sensitivity to play a role in the aetiology of the disease. In most patients, the lesions begin and stay limited on the lower extremities as textile products are in tight contact with the skin. Read More

Ablation Index as a predictor of long-term efficacy in premature ventricular complex ablation: A regional target value analysis.

Heart Rhythm 2019 06 4;16(6):888-895. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Heart Rhythm Center, Centro Cardiologico Monzino IRCCS, Milan, Italy; Department of Clinical Sciences and Community Health, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

Background: The effectiveness of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in atrial tachyarrhythmias correlates with lesion transmurality. Ablation Index (AI) is an index that incorporates contact force, time, and radiofrequency power simultaneously and is able to predict lesion size and outcomes in RFCA of atrial fibrillation.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess whether AI could be an acute and long-term success predictor in RFCA of premature ventricular complexes (PVCs). Read More

Lesion index: a novel guide in the path of successful pulmonary vein isolation.

J Interv Card Electrophysiol 2019 Jun 4;55(1):27-34. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Heart Rhythm Center, Centro Cardiologico Monzino IRCCS, Via Carlo Parea 4, 20138, Milan, MI, Italy.

Purpose: Previous studies indicate force time integral (FTI) as a radiofrequency (RF) lesion quality marker, while not considering power supply. Tacticath™ Quartz catheter provides Lesion index (LSI), a lesion quality marker derived by contact force (CF), power supply, and RF time combined. Our aim is to assess LSI and FTI correlation and a LSI-related cutoff of atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrences 12 months after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). Read More

Rev Chilena Infectol 2018 04;35(2):204-206

Sección de Micología, Hospital General Dr. Manuel Gea. González, Ciudad de México, México.

Exotic pets, such as the ground hedgehog, are capable of transmitting to the human being different zoonoses, such as salmonellosis, mycobacteria, protozoa such as Cryptosporidium parvum, and dermatophytosis. We present the case report of a male adult patient, who had recently acquired a ground hedgehog, who presented in his hand a ringworm lesion incognito and a Majocchi granuloma. The etiological agent was identified as Trichophyton erinacei by mycological culture and molecular biology. Read More

Majocchi's granuloma (granuloma trichophyticum) in a guinea pig owner: A case report and literature review.

J Mycol Med 2018 Sep 1;28(3):523-526. Epub 2018 Jun 1.

Department and Clinic of Dermatology, Karol Marcinkowski University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland; Department of Medical Mycology and Dermatology, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland.

Majocchi's granuloma is a folliculitis caused by dermatophytes, which is most commonly located on the skin of the lower limbs in women. A favorable factor for the infection is an injury caused by epilation, which, together with an existing fungal infection, can lead to the spread of folliculitis to other parts of the body. The disease is extremely rare (Burgdorf et al. Read More
