Description 1 online resource (xxii, 82 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Contents Anatomy of the left atrium and pulmonary veins -- Pathophysiology of atrial fibrilation -- Techniques and technologies for atrial fibrilation catheter ablation -- Endpoints of catheter ablation for atrial fibrilation -- Patient management pre- and postablation -- Anticoagulation issues -- Periprocedural and late complications -- Short- and long-term efficacy
Summary In recent years, catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation has become a widespread treatment modality in electrophysiology laboratories all over the world. Nevertheless, many aspects of the therapy are controversial. Developed by world-renowned experts in the field, this book presents a comprehensive and up-to date overview of all the most important and debated aspects of atrial fibrillation ablation, including: 8226; Ablation techniques and technologies 8226; Procedural endpoints 8226; Patient management pre-, peri- and post-ablation 8226; Anticoagulation issues 8226; Prevention and treatment of complications 8226; Definition of success and long-term results The text expands upon the content of the VeniceChart international consensus document on atrial fibrillation ablation and is enriched by several explanatory figures and tables. It provides a highly valuable source of information not only for researchers and specialists in electrophysiology, but also for general cardiologists, internists, fellows in cardiology and medical students
