Clinic for Electrophysiology, Herz- und Diabeteszentrum NRW, Ruhr-Universit├Ąt Bochum, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany., Bad Oeynhausen, Germany.

Background: The non-fluoroscopy approach with the use of a three-dimensional (3D) navigation system is increasingly recognized as a future technology in the treatment of arrhythmias. However, there are a limited number of articles published concerning transseptal puncture without the use of fluoroscopy.

Methods: Presented in this paper is the first series of patients (n = 10) that have undergone transseptal puncture without the use of fluoroscopy under transesophageal echocardiography control using a radiofrequency transseptal needle and a 3D navigation system. Read More

Five-year efficacy of pulmonary vein antrum isolation as a primary ablation strategy for atrial fibrillation: a single-centre cohort study.

Europace 2016 Sep 2;18(9):1335-42. Epub 2016 Feb 2.

Division of Heart and Lungs, Department of Cardiology, University Medical Center Utrecht, Heidelberglaan 100, 3584CX Utrecht, The Netherlands

Aims: Pulmonary vein antrum isolation (PVAI) is the cornerstone of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. There is an ongoing discussion on whether and when to add substrate modification to PVAI. This study evaluates (1) long-term efficacy of PVAI as a primary ablation strategy in all patients independently from AF type and (2) predictors of arrhythmia recurrence. Read More
