ADVANCE researchers receive three Johns Hopkins Discovery Awards for innovative research

The three awards will enable ADVANCE researchers to develop deep learning learning methods to understand the recurrence of atrial fibrillation following catheter ablation, artificial intelligence to predict the risk of sudden death in Sarcoidosis, and computational approaches for arrhythmia risk prediction in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy. Principal investigator Dr. Natalia Read more…

AF Symposium 2020: Cryoablation pulmonary vein isolation is safe and effective for persistent atrial fibrillation at one year

Hugh Calkins (Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, USA) told delegates attending the AF Symposium 2020 (23–25 January, Washington, DC, USA) that cryoablation with the Arctic Front catheter (Medtronic) was a safe and effective approach for managing persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). He added that the procedure also improves quality of life and reduces symptoms.
