Titel:
Systemic inflammatory changes after pulmonary vein radiofrequency ablation do not alter stem cell mobilization. 
Abstract:
AIMS: Aim of this study was to investigate the number of circulating progenitor cells, systemic inflammatory mediators, and myocardial necrosis in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing pulmonary vein (PV) isolation by radiofrequency (RF) ablation. Radiofrequency ablation generates a localized myocardial necrosis that might result in a release of inflammatory mediators enhancing progenitor cell mobilization and improving tissue repair. METHODS AND RESULTS: Blood samples wer...    »
