G Ital Cardiol (Rome) 2018 Apr;19(4):222-231

Reparto di Cardiologia, Città di Lecce Hospital, GVM Care&Research, Lecce.

The atrioventricular (AV) node is an anatomically well-defined structure, conveniently housed in the triangle of Koch. There are two distinct atrial impulse approaches to the AV node, one of which (in the anterior portion of triangle of Koch) has a faster conduction, while the other one (in the posterior portion) has a slower conduction. However, it is not said that such a conductive duality translates into any arrhythmic phenomena. Read More

Predictors of High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin T Elevation in Patients with Acute Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia and Ischemic Heart Disease.

Tex Heart Inst J 2017 Oct 1;44(5):306-311. Epub 2017 Oct 1.

We studied the predictors and patterns of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) elevation in patients with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) in the presence and absence of ischemic heart disease. During calendar year 2013, we enrolled 70 of 72 consecutive adult patients with PSVT who presented at our center within 4 hours after the onset of tachycardia. On the basis of increased hs-cTnT at either of 2 initial measurements, we divided patients into groups (hs-cTnT-positive and hs-cTnT-negative), to study the predictors of enzyme elevation. Read More

Which patients recur as atrial tachycardia rather than atrial fibrillation after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation?

PLoS One 2017 16;12(11):e0188326. Epub 2017 Nov 16.

Yonsei University Health System, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Introduction: The ablation gaps have been known as the main mechanism of recurrence as atrial tachycardia (AT) rather than atrial fibrillation (AF) after AF catheter ablation. However, AF organization due to reduction of critical mass or focal trigger may also be the mechanism of AT recurrence. We sought to find out the main clinical factors of recurrence as AT rather than AF after AF ablation in the absence of antiarrhythmic drug effect. Read More
