This book covers all the major aspects associated with pathophysiological development of cardiac arrhythmias (covering enhanced or suppressed automaticity, triggered activity, or re-entry), from basic concepts through disease association, limitations of current pharmacotherapy and implant therapies and on-going trials and analysis of new biomarkers based on current knowledge of cellular interaction and signalling. The book describes novel and state-of-the-art methods for differentiating between the major types of arrhythmia, structural abnormalities and current practice guidelines and determination of risk stratification associated with sudden cardiac death. A particular focus is on arrhythmias associated with atrial fibrillation and includes details of associations with cardiac disease, current detection, analysis and imaging and future perspectives.aImages from three-dimensional mapping systems, real-time fluoroscopy, and CT scans can be integrated, thus facilitating fully ... To localize the catheter tip, an integrated three-dimensional mapping system (CARTO RMT, Biosense Webster, Inc., ... RMN is associated with longer ablation times, fluoroscopy time is considerably shorter as compared to manual ablation. ... multiple difficulties must be overcome in order to achieve successful outcome without unnecessary adverse events.
