Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common tachyarrhythmia in the heart. Irregular RR intervals and the absence of a P wave before the QRS complex characterize AF. Although many studies have been done to detect atrial fibrillation, many aspects of this intricate disease need further analysis. AF is often diagnosed by the interpretation of multi...

Atrial Fibrillation or AF is the most common heart rhythm anomaly affecting millions of people. This work explores the possibilities of reinterpreting speech processing techniques for use in atrial fibrillation detection. An existing method of modelling single heartbeat, single lead ECG signals by means of an ARMA model's amplitude response as a...

Oza, Jimeet (author)
Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia resulting from abnormal electrical conduction and impulse formation within the atria. To address this condition, a minimally invasive procedure called cardiac ablation is performed. Real-time visual feedback during this procedure plays a critical role in determining its success.<br/><br/>Photoacoustic...

Suresan, Anjali (author)
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a cardiac arrhythmia that occurs due to the initiation of electrical impulses in the heart in an uncoordinated manner, giving rise to a disorganized and rapid heartbeat. The progression of AF over time can lead to complications such as stroke and heart failure. Catheter ablation is an established treatment protocol...

Estimating the transmembrane currents travelling through the epicardium and local activation times based on atrial epicardial electrograms can greatly help in the study of cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. This work focuses on the accurate estimation of the aforementioned signals and features. To do this, two least squares-based...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most commonly occurring arrhythmia in clinical practice and can have a significant impact on the current and future wellbeing of the patient. By placing an unipolar sensor array directly on the epicardium during an open-heart surgery to measure the electrical activity of the atrium, more insight about this disease...

Introduction: Currently, there is no method available for intra-operative evaluation of the completeness (transmurality and continuity) of surgical ablation lesions. This study aimed to investigate the changes in electrogram characteristics and activation patterns caused by different (non)transmural and (dis)continuous ablation lesions in ex...

Background: Smartwatches enable continuous and noninvasive time series monitoring of cardiovascular biomarkers like heart rate (from photoplethysmograms), step counter, skin temperature, et cetera; as such, they have promise in assisting in early detection and prevention of cardiovascular disease. Although these biomarkers may not be directly...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia, progressive in nature, and known to have a negative impact on mortality, morbidity, and quality of life. Patients requiring acute termination of AF to restore sinus rhythm are subjected to electrical cardioversion, which requires sedation and therefore hospitalization due to...

Aims: Areas of conduction inhomogeneity (CI) during sinus rhythm may facilitate the initiation and perpetuation of atrial fibrillation (AF). Currently, no tool is available to quantify the severity of CI. Our aim is to develop and validate a novel tool using unipolar electrograms (EGMs) only to quantify the severity of CI in the atria....

Background: Dominant frequencies (DFs) or complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAEs), indicative of focal sources or rotational activation, are used to identify target sites for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation in clinical studies, although the relationship among DF, CFAE, and activation patterns remains unclear. Objectives: This study...

Background: Optogenetics could offer a solution to the current lack of an ambulatory method for the rapid automated cardioversion of atrial fibrillation (AF), but key translational aspects remain to be studied. Objective: To investigate whether optogenetic cardioversion of AF is effective in the aged heart and whether sufficient light...

(1) Background. Obesity is a well-established worldwide recognised risk factor for atrial fibrillation (AF). Prior review papers reported on the associations between obesity and AF development, but not on the relation between obesity and atrial electrophysiology. We therefore conducted a systematic review to describe the current knowledge of...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Atrial extrasystoles (AES) provoke conduction disorders and may trigger episodes of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the direction- and rate-dependency of electrophysiological tissue properties on epicardial unipolar electrogram (EGM) morphology is unknown. Therefore, this study examined the impact of spontaneous AES on...

Background: Prior studies demonstrated that female sex is associated with arrhythmia recurrence after endovascular pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). However, it is unknown if the sexes differ in outcome after video assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) PVI. The aim of this study was therefore to compare characteristics of recurrent AF episodes in a...

Estimating tissue conductivity parameters from electrograms (EGMs) could be an important tool for diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation (AF). One of these parameters is the fibre direction, often assumed to be known in conductivity estimation methods. In this paper, a novel method to estimate the fibre...

Atrial fibrillation is a common cardiovascular disease, affecting the regular beating of the heart through chaotic contraction of the heart's upper chambers. On its own, the condition—increasingly prevalent among the elderly—is not life threatening, but it leads to an increased risk of stroke and heart failure. As of yet, there is no consensus...

The heart is one of our vital organs. It functions by periodically contracting in a rhythmic way. Sometimes, this rhythmic behaviour is affected by abnormalities in the tissue. These conditions are referred to as cardiac arrhythmias. One kind is of specific interest, called atrial fibrillation (AF). To further study AF, methods have been...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a frequently encountered cardiac arrhythmia characterized by rapid and irregular atrial activity, which increases the risk of strokes, heart failure and other heart-related complications. The mechanisms of AF are complicated. Although various mechanisms were proposed in previous research, the precise mechanisms of AF...

The most common serious heart rhythm disease is atrial fibrillation. It is not fatal on its own but does increase the risk of heart failures and strokes. There is little understanding about the mechanisms behind the disease, so more insight is desired. Using an array of electrodes, measurements are being performed of the electrical atrial...
