Thoracic Vein Arrhythmias: Mechanisms and Treatment by Shih-Ann Chen, Michel Haïssaguerre, Douglas Zipes

By Shih-Ann Chen, Michel Haïssaguerre, Douglas Zipes

In 1998 Professor Haissaguerre and his colleagues made the preliminary commentary in sufferers that triggering foci in or round the pulmonary veins start up a few varieties of atrial traumatic inflammation. on the grounds that then it has develop into transparent that atrial traumatic inflammation and different atrial tachyarrhythmias should be initiated (and probably maintained) by way of triggering foci in any of the thoracic veins. this idea is now probably the most present issues in electrophysiology, and whereas it's a subject of common dialogue within the significant cardiology and electrophysiology journals, Thoracic Vein Arrhythmias: Mechanisms and Treatment is the 1st state-of-the artwork multi-authored textbook that integrates the advances made during this speedily constructing new sector of cardiac arrhythmias for the worldwide group.

Edited by way of Drs. Shih-Ann Chen, Michel Haissaguerre, and Douglas P. Zipes, who're on the vanguard of advances during this box of cardiology, and with contributions from authors representing a world array of experts of their person fields, this article is going to be a useful connection with scholars, uncomplicated scientists, and clinicians with an curiosity in any element of cardiac arrhythmia.

  • First textbook to supply accomplished, severe and insightful evaluation through prime specialists within the intriguing box of thoracic vein arrhythmias.
  • Contains evaluate of the present prestige of thoracic vein arrhythmias, and hypothesis on how the hot findings will impression on remedy of cardiac arrhythmias.
  • The chapters define how growth is being made on numerous fronts starting from easy mechanisms to invasive remedy for thoracic vein arrhythmias.

These muscular extensions from the left atrium are discussed in Chapter 4. 7–9 Concomitant with improvements in eletrophysiological mapping, a whole gamut of transcatheter techniques, ranging from creating a focal ablation lesion to the construction of multiple lines, has been deployed. 4,13–17 Some of these are reminiscent of lines created at surgery. They also reduce the critical mass of atrial tissue, preventing the potential for macroreentry. 13,17 Placement of ablation lines at the venoatrial junction or in the adjacent atrial wall requires a better understanding of the anatomic arrangement of these areas.

Note the multilayered appearance of the sleeve, with groups of myocardial cells coursing in different directions, separated by strands of connective tissue. 2 mm. 6 Peripheral extensions of myocardial sleeves. The left-hand panel shows the gross appearance of a peripheral finger-like extension of a myocardial sleeve. The right-hand panel shows the microscopic appearance of an apparently isolated cluster of myocardial cells representing such a finger-like extension. 2 mm. 6). This could well represent the anatomic substrate for isolated tracts within pulmonary veins, occasionally identified electrophysiologically.

4C), these lines of evidence suggest specialized electrophysiological properties of the cells constituting the LAT. 6,7 To underscore the electrophysiological differences between the LAT and atrium, we compared transmembrane action potentials from atrium and LAT cells. 6B) in a superfused in vitro preparation of the posterior left atrium of the dog heart. 6C). A preliminary comparison of the cellular electrophysiology of the LAT and adjacent atrium was reported more than 30 years ago. Significant differences were found between upstroke velocities of phase 0 between LAT cells (300–450 V/s) versus atrial cells (150–250 V/s) and also a 20–30% faster conduction velocity in the LAT than atrium.
