Research programmes

1) Innovatieve Katheter technieken voor behandeling van Atrium Fibrilleren 2) Device therapie voor Aritmie

 a. CRYO-ablatie: Sinds 2015 is het StAZ als 1 van de eerste 2 centra ter wereld betrokken bij een nieuwe CRYO-ablatie methode welke de komende jaren verder uitgebreid gaat worden in klinische studies (CRYOCURE I en II).
b. Electroporatie: in 2017 start het eerste onderzoek naar een volledig nieuwe energievorm om ablatie te verrichten. Het StAZ zal daar als een van de eerste 4 centra ter wereld in participeren in de eerste klinische studies (PDA trial)
c. Hoge-resolutie mapping: in 2016 start onderzoek naar een nieuwe vorm van hoge-resolutie mapping middels dipool densiteit meting welke het real-time volgen van de electrische activatie van het hart mogelijk maakt. Samen met 12 centra zal er onderzoek worden gedaan naar de mechanismen van atriumfibrilleren en mogelijkheden voor therapie middels ablatie van kritische plaatsen in het hart.
d. Linkerhartoorsluiting: Sinds 2009 wordt deze ingreep in het StAZ als een van de weinige in Nederland verricht. Het StAZ leidt het internationale multicenter onderzoek in de EWOLUTION studie. Daarnaast is er speciale aandacht voor de combinatie van ablatie en hartoorsluiting waar het StAZ zowel single- als multicenter onderzoek naar doet.
