Pulmonary vein stenosis after pulmonary vein ablation catheter-guided pulmonary vein isolation University of Antwerp
Prevalence, characteristics, and predictors of pulmonary vein narrowing after isolation using the pulmonary vein ablation catheter Vrije Universiteit Brussel University of Antwerp
BACKGROUND: The risk of pulmonary vein narrowing (PVN) after pulmonary vein isolation, using a novel multi-electrode ablation catheter, is unknown.
METHODS AND RESULTS: Left atrial volume and PV diameters were compared by computed tomography (CT) before and 3 months after pulmonary vein isolation using duty-cycled phased radio frequency energy (2:1 or 4:1 bipolar/unipolar ratio) in 50 patients. Pulmonary vein diameter was measured in a ...

Pulmonary vascular response to exercise in symptomatic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and pulmonary hypertension Vrije Universiteit Brussel Hasselt University KU Leuven
AIMS: To study pulmonary vascular response patterns to exercise in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and pulmonary hypertension (PH).
METHODS AND RESULTS: In this prospective single-centre cohort study, consecutive symptomatic HFrEF patients (n = 40) with mean pulmonary arterial pressure (MPAP) ≥25 mmHg, pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP) >15 mmHg, and cardiac index <2.5 L/min.m(2) , received protocol-driven ...
