Atrial fibrillation and heart failure in seven nursing homes
(Sciedu Press, 2012-11-01)
Objectives: Previous research suggests that blood-thinning treatment for patients with atrial fibrillation as well as treatment for patients with heart failure is not adequate among the elderly. We tested this among long-term ...
Remote magnetic versus manual catheters: evaluation of ablation effect in atrial fibrillation by myocardial marker levels
Background A remote magnetic navigation (MN) system is available for radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF), challenging the conventional manual ablation technique. The myocardial markers were measured to ...
N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide level at longterm follow-up after atrial fibrillation ablation: A marker of reverse atrial remodeling and successful ablation
Aims: We investigated the relationship between arrhythmia burden, left atrial volume (LAV) and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) at baseline and after long-term follow-up of atrial fibrillation (AF) ...
