      Prominent publications by Gerhard Hindricks Md

      KOL-Index: 16194

      BACKGROUND: In patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), the frequent provocation of ventricular tachycardia during exercise, the sensitivity toward catecholamines, and the response toward antiarrhythmic drug regimen with antiadrenergic properties suggest an involvement of the sympathetic nervous system in arrhythmogenesis.

      METHODS AND RESULTS: To analyze the presence, extent, and location of impaired myocardial sympathetic innervation in ARVC, ...

      BACKGROUND: Recurrences of atrial fibrillation (AF) occur in up to 30% within 1 year after catheter ablation. This study evaluated the value of CHADS2, R2CHADS2, and CHA2DS2-VASc scores for the prediction of rhythm outcomes after AF catheter ablation.

      METHODS AND RESULTS: Using the Leipzig Heart Center AF Ablation Registry, we documented rhythm outcomes within the first 12 months in 2069 patients (67% men; 60±10 years; 35% persistent AF) undergoing AF catheter ablation. AF recurrences ...

      BACKGROUND: There are limited data on the predictive value of stroke risk scores for thromboembolic events (TEs) after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). Our objectives were to report the incidence of TEs after AF ablation in a large contemporary AF ablation cohort and to investigate the impact of renal dysfunction and the value of stroke risk stratification scores (CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc, and R2CHADS2) for predicting TE after AF ablation.

      METHODS AND RESULTS: Using the Leipzig ...

      OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyze different anatomic mapping approaches for successful ablation of outflow tract tachycardia with R/S transition in lead V(3).

      BACKGROUND: Idiopathic ventricular tachycardia can originate from different areas in the outflow tract, including the right and left ventricular endocardium, the epicardium, the pulmonary artery, and the aortic sinus of Valsalva. Although electrocardiographic criteria may be helpful in predicting the area of origin, ...

      IMPORTANCE: Left atrial fibrosis is prominent in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Extensive atrial tissue fibrosis identified by delayed enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been associated with poor outcomes of AF catheter ablation.

      OBJECTIVE: To characterize the feasibility of atrial tissue fibrosis estimation by delayed enhancement MRI and its association with subsequent AF ablation outcome.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Multicenter, prospective, observational ...

      OBJECTIVES: This study was performed to investigate the electrophysiological characteristics of idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia and to determine the feasibility of radiofrequency catheter ablation for nonpharmacological cure.

      BACKGROUND: The underlying electrophysiological mechanism of idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia with right bundle branch block morphology and left-axis deviation is presently not known. Additionally, only limited data describing the results of ...

      BACKGROUND: There are limited data comparing radiofrequency catheter ablation with antiarrhythmic drug therapy as first-line treatment in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

      METHODS: We randomly assigned 294 patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and no history of antiarrhythmic drug use to an initial treatment strategy of either radiofrequency catheter ablation (146 patients) or therapy with class IC or class III antiarrhythmic agents (148 patients). Follow-up included ...

      BACKGROUND: The feasibility of radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation for the treatment of sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with coronary artery disease and remote myocardial infarction has recently been demonstrated. At present, therapeutic options for VT in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) include antiarrhythmic drugs and implantable cardioverter/defibrillators (ICD). The purpose of the present study was to investigate the feasibility of RF ...

      AIMS: To compare the acute and the 6 month outcome of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) using irrigated tip magnetic catheter and remote magnetic cathter navigation (RMN) with manual catheter navigation (MCN) in patients with paroxysmal and persistent AF.

      METHODS AND RESULTS: In this retrospective analysis 356 patients (235 male, mean age: 57.9 ± 10.9 years) with AF (70.5%, paroxysmal) who underwent catheter ablation between August 2007 and May 2008 using either RMN (n = 70, ...

      BACKGROUND: A remote magnetic navigation system (MNS) is available and has been used with a 4-mm-tip magnetic catheter for radiofrequency (RF) ablation of some supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias; however, it has not been evaluated for the ablation of cavotricuspid isthmus-dependent right atrial flutter (AFL). The present study evaluates the feasibility and efficiency of this system and the newly available 8-mm-tip magnetic catheter to perform RF ablation in patients with ...

      BackgroundRecurrent atrial fibrillation (AF) occurs in up to 50 % of patients within 1 year after catheter ablation, and a clinical risk score to predict recurrence remains a critical unmet need. The aim of this study was to (1) develop a simple score for the prediction of rhythm outcome following catheter ablation; (2) compare it with the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores, and (3) validate it in an external cohort.MethodsRhythm outcome between 3 and 12 months after AF catheter ablation ...

      KOL-Index: 12994

      BACKGROUND: Reduced electrogram amplitude has been shown to correlate with diseased myocardium. We describe a novel individualized approach for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) based on low-voltage areas (LVAs) in the left atrium (LA). We sought to assess (1) the incidence of LVAs in patients undergoing AF catheter ablation, (2) the distribution of LVAs within the LA, and (3) the effect of an individualized ablation strategy on long-term rhythm outcomes.

      OBJECTIVES: The present study reports on the complementary role of two nonpharmacological options of antiarrhythmic therapy.

      BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation, antitachycardia surgery, and the implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) have become important tools in the management of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. However, the emergence of ventricular tachyarrhythmias after implantation of an ICD is possible because the arrhythmogenic substrate is not affected.
