Impact of B-type natriuretic peptide level on the risk of left atrial appendage thrombus in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation: a prospective study

Background The impact of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) level on the risk of left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombus in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) has not been prospectively studied. Methods In two academic medical centers, we obtained BNP levels immediately prior to transesophageal echocardiogram performed to exclude LAA thrombus in patients with NVAF...

Time-limited cryomapping during tachycardia: improved long-term outcomes for cryoablation of AVNRT

Purpose Cryothermal ablation (CTA) for atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is considered safer than radiofrequency ablation (RFA) since it eliminates the risk of inadvertent AV block. However, it has not been widely adopted due to high late recurrence rate (LRR). In an effort to improve LRR, we evaluated a new approach to cryothermal mapping (CTM): “time to...
