Costs and long-term outcomes following pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation in elderly patients using second-generation cryoballoon vs. open-irrigated radiofrequency in China.

J Interv Card Electrophysiol 2020 Dec 31;59(3):557-564. Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Department of Cardiology, Affiliated Hangzhou First People's Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, #261 Huansha Road, Hangzhou, 310000, Zhejiang Province, China.

Purpose: Limited comparative data are available regarding catheter ablation (CA) of atrial fibrillation (AF) using second-generation cryoballoon (CB-2) vs. radiofrequency (RF) ablation in elderly patients (> 75 years old). The present study aimed to compare the costs and clinical outcomes in elderly patients using these two strategies. Read More

Clinical significance of the timing of early recurrence of atrial arrhythmia after pulmonary vein isolation: a two-institution clinical study.

Heart Vessels 2019 May 2;34(5):842-850. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Cardiology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, 65 Tsurumai-cho, Showa-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, 466-8550, Japan.

Early recurrence of atrial arrhythmia (ERAA) after ablation frequently occurs, but there is limited evidence about ERAA-timing. This study aimed to investigate the association between ERAA-timing and late recurrence. We retrospectively investigated 332 patients who underwent PVI for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation at Nagoya University Hospital and Komaki City Hospital. Read More
