Book Description

Pulmonary Vein Recordings: A Practical Guide to the Mapping and Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation is an essential reference for electrophysiologists, fellows-in-training, and all those involved in the mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation. Extensively illustrated with annotated multichannel tracings, this revised and updated edition adds 30 new tracings that illustrate important practical points and useful tips that will facilitate the interpretation of electrogram recordings obtained by circumferential mapping, leading to successful pulmonary vein isolation. PV electrograms from rare and interesting cases are also included.

From the Foreword:

"This book remains a practical guide to catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation and includes carefully annotated examples that explain the complex and sometimes alluring signals obtained during circumferential pulmonary vein mapping.  The tracings have been carefully chosen to convey important practical points as well as useful tips to help the beginner and the more advanced electrophysiologist. Some rare and interesting cases are also included.

I recommend this book to all those involved in the mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation."

This is a concise, practical guide to understanding pulmonary vein recordings in radiofrequency catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation.
The purpose is to provide an advanced understanding of atrial fibrillation, catheter-based mapping, and ablative therapy through annotated pulmonary vein recordings.
This book is suitable for cardiovascular physicians in training as well as practicing electrophysiologists. Electrophysiology staff, including nurses and technicians, also may benefit, if they have an advanced appreciation for mapping and ablative therapy. The book assumes a basic knowledge of electrophysiology and intracardiac tracings.
The guide begins with a concise overview of catheter basics, positioning, and pulmonary vein anatomy. Subsequently, it addresses the complex electrical potentials as well as the many specific challenges of mapping, pacing, and isolation by radiofrequency ablation. This practical resource uses examples of intracardiac tracings with annotated cases that are organized by specific sites of circumferential catheter mapping, including left and right pulmonary veins as well as the superior and inferior vena cava. Additionally, it provides angiographic pictures to illustrate ideal catheter position in conjunction with tracings. Overall, this book focuses on the practical points to be expected during pulmonary vein mapping and isolation, using a logical approach to reinforce the core concepts.
This pragmatic guide to understanding pulmonary vein tracings is most appropriate for practicing electrophysiologists, fellows in training, or those interested in a pursuing an advanced understanding of radiofrequency ablative isolation for atrial fibrillation. The concise and focused approach lends itself to rapid review without compromising effectiveness.
