Systemic sclerosis can involve almost all structures of cardiovascular system like conduction pathway, heart valves, endocardium, myocardium, pericardium, coronary arteries and pulmonary arteries.
The insulating material interrupts the heat conduction pathway through the window, and is therefore known as a "thermal break." A common thermal break system, known as Poured-and-Debridged (P&DB), involves the pouring of a liquid polyurethane formulation into a specially designed cavity built into the frame or sash extrusion.
Wolf-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome, the most common of the preexcitation syndromes, is characterized by the presence of an accessory conduction pathway between the atrium and the common ventricular tissue.[1] Although many treatment options are available, transcatheter radiofrequency ablation has increasingly become the therapy of choice for safe and definitive management of patients with WPW syndrome.
In another case, the researchers damaged the heart's normal conduction pathway; this man ultimately needed an artificial pacemaker.
The conduction pathway for the enhanced conduction was analyzed using the impedance pattern and capacitance value.
However, it may involve third window fluid [5, 13-15] or soft tissue conduction pathways that are initiated by the delivery of the vibratory stimuli to the skin.
