Showing 31 to 45 of 162 results for atrial fibrillation

  1. Radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation in association with other cardiac surgery (IPG121)

    Evidence-based recommendations on radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation in association with other cardiac surgery. This involves scarring the heart tissue using heat to interrupt abnormal electrical signals.

  2. Cryoablation for atrial fibrillation in association with other cardiac surgery (IPG123)

    Evidence-based recommendations on cryoablation for atrial fibrillation in association with other cardiac surgery. This involves using a probe to freeze the heart tissue to scar it and interrupt the abnormal electrical signals.

  3. Microwave ablation for atrial fibrillation in association with other cardiac surgery (IPG122)

    Evidence-based recommendations on microwave ablation for atrial fibrillation in association with other cardiac surgery. This involves scarring the heart tissue using heat produced from microwave energy to interrupt abnormal electrical signals.

  4. Thoracoscopic epicardial radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation (IPG286)

    Evidence-based recommendations on thoracoscopic epicardial radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation. This involves using heat to destroy the selected areas of the heart to prevent the occurrence or conduction of abnormal electrical activity.

  5. Heart valve disease presenting in adults: investigation and management (NG208)

    This guideline covers investigation and management of heart valve disease presenting in adults. It aims to improve quality of life and survival for people with heart valve disease through timely diagnosis and appropriate intervention.

  6. Percutaneous endoscopic laser balloon pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation (IPG563)

    Evidence-based recommendations on percutaneous endoscopic laser balloon pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation in adults. This involves destroying the tissue causing atrial fibrillation using laser energy.

  7. Using implantable cardiac monitors to detect atrial arrhythmias (fibrillation/flutter) after cryptogenic stroke

    increased capacity to insert implantable cardiac monitors to detect atrial fibrillation after cryptogenic ischaemic stroke by using the...

  8. Percutaneous (non-thoracoscopic) epicardial catheter radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation (IPG294)

    Evidence-based recommendations on percutaneous (non-thoracoscopic) epicardial catheter radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation. This involves using heat to destroy selected areas of the heart to prevent the abnormal electrical impulses responsible for atrial fibrillation.

  9. Percutaneous occlusion of the left atrial appendage in non-valvular atrial fibrillation for the prevention of thromboembolism (IPG349)

    Evidence-based recommendations on percutaneous occlusion of the left atrial appendage in non-valvular atrial fibrillation for the prevention of thromboembolism. This involves using a special device to block the mouth of the left atrial appendage and stop the blood clot from getting into the bloodstream.

  10. The contractor establishes and maintains a register of patients with atrial fibrillation, including patients with 'AF resolved'

    register of patients with atrial fibrillation, including patients with 'AF resolved' Subject(s): Atrial...

  11. Thoracoscopic exclusion of the left atrial appendage (with or without surgical ablation) for non-valvular atrial fibrillation for the prevention of thromboembolism (IPG400)

    Evidence-based recommendations on thoracoscopic exclusion of the left atrial appendage in atrial fibrillation (with or without other cardiac surgery) for the prevention of thromboembolism. This involves inserting a camera and instruments through small cuts in the chest and closing the left atrial appendage.

  12. In those patients with atrial fibrillation with a record of a CHA2DS2-VASc score of 2 or more, the percentage of patients who are currently treated with anticoagulation drug therapy

    In those patients with atrial fibrillation with a record of a CHA2DS2-VASc score of 2 or more, the percentage of patients who are...

  13. Proportion of patients admitted to hospital for stroke with a pre-existing diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, who were on anticoagulation

    pre-existing diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, who were on anticoagulation Subject(s): Atrial fibrillation Date of

  14. Proportion of patients admitted to hospital for stroke with a pre-existing diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, who were not on anticoagulation

    pre-existing diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, who were not on anticoagulation Subject(s): Atrial fibrillation Date of

  15. The percentage of patients with atrial fibrillation in whom stroke risk has been assessed using the CHA2DS2-VASc score risk stratification scoring system in the preceding 12 months (excluding those patients with a previous CHADS2 or CHA2DS2-VASc score of 2 or more)

    The percentage of patients with atrial fibrillation in whom stroke risk has been assessed using the CHA2DS2-VASc score risk...
