A H Maass, M E W Hemels, C P Allaart
In recent years the prevalence of implantation of a cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) has increased due to expanding implantation indications and prolonged life expectancy. Diagnostic strategies increasingly employ magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to aid therapeutic strategies. In earlier guidelines, MRI was contra-indicated in patients with CIEDs, mainly due to previous reports of severe complications. With the development of MRI-conditional CIEDs and recent evidence concerning non-MRI-conditional CIEDs, MRIs in CIED patients can be safely performed in many hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Young implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) patients are prone to complications and inappropriate shocks (IAS). The subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) may avoid lead-related complications. This study aims to describe the incidence and nature of device-related complications in young transvenous ICD (TV-ICD) and S‑ICD patients. METHODS: Single-chamber TV-ICD and S‑ICD patients up to and including the age of 25 years implanted between 2002 and 2015 were retrospectively analysed...

BACKGROUND: Timely detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) patients is clinically important for prevention of AF-related complications and inappropriate shocks. Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and a dual or triple chamber ICD show a high incidence of device-detected AF. Whether CAD patients with a single chamber ICD carry a similar risk for device-detected AF remains unknown. STUDY DESIGN: The INDICO AF trial is an investigator-initiated, multicentre, observational study evaluating the incidence of subclinical AF (SCAF) in CAD patients who will receive a single chamber ICD as primary prevention for sudden cardiac death (SCD)...

AIMS: In pre-hospital settings handled by paramedics, identification of patients with myocardial infarction (MI) remains challenging when automated electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation is inconclusive. We aimed to identify those patients and to get them on the right track to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: In the Rotterdam-Rijnmond region, automated ECG devices on all ambulances were supplemented with a modem, enabling transmission of ECGs for online expert interpretation...

PURPOSE: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) are a major healthcare problem. Over the years, several initiatives have contributed to more lay volunteers providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and increased use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the Netherlands. As part of a quality and outcomes program, we registered bystander CPR, AED use and outcome in the Nijmegen area. METHODS: Prospective resuscitation registry with a study cohort of non-traumatic OHCA cases from 2013-2016 and historical controls from 2008-2011...

BACKGROUND: In patients with mild to moderate functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) and absence of right ventricular dysfunction or tricuspid annulus (TA) dilatation, there is currently no indication for concomitant tricuspid valve (TV) repair during elective mitral valve (MV) surgery. However, long-term results are conflicting. Here, we sought to determine the clinical outcome of this cohort, the rate of TR progression after MV surgery and the role of MV aetiology. METHODS: Patients for elective MV surgery without concomitant TV repair were retrospectively analysed with longitudinal echocardiographic and clinical follow-up, focusing on TR progression and MV aetiology...

AIMS: To analyse the impact of device and software updates on the prevention of T‑wave oversensing (TWOS) and inappropriate shocks (IS) in subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) patients. BACKGROUND: TWOS is a feared complication after implantation. It may lead to harmful IS. To date, specific strategies to reduce these events are lacking. METHODS: In this retrospective single-centre trial we analysed 146 S‑ICD patients who were implanted between 2010 and 2016...

OBJECTIVE: The EuroSCORE I was one of the most frequently used pre-operative risk models in cardiac surgery. In 2011 it was replaced by its successor the EuroSCORE II. This study aims to validate the EuroSCORE II and to compare its performance with the EuroSCORE I in a Dutch hospital. METHODS: The EuroSCORE II was prospectively validated in 2,296 consecutive cardiac surgery patients between 1 April 2012 and 1 January 2014. Receiver operating characteristic curves on in-hospital mortality were plotted for EuroSCORE I and EuroSCORE II, and the area under the curve was calculated to assess discriminative power...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of percutaneous patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure in divers with a history of decompression sickness (DCS). STUDY DESIGN: (1) Retrospective study of patient records and (2) telephonic follow-up. Patients with unexplained decompression sickness, who were referred to a cardiologist with a focus on diving medicine between 2000 and 2017, were included in the study RESULTS: A total of 62 divers with DCS were included. In all cases transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was performed, showing 29 PFOs and 6 atrial septum defects (ASDs) in total n = 35 (56%)...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has evolved to standard treatment of severe aortic stenosis in patients with an intermediate to high surgical risk. Computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) could partially replace invasive coronary angiography to diagnose significant coronary artery disease in the work-up for TAVI. A literature search was performed in MEDLINE and EMBASE for papers comparing CTCA and coronary angiography in TAVI candidates. The primary endpoint was the diagnostic accuracy of CTCA, compared to coronary angiography, for detection of significant (>50% diameter stenosis) coronary artery disease, measured as sensitivity, specificity, positive-(PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV)...

Recent advances in the early detection and treatment of cancer have led to increasing numbers of cancer survivors worldwide. Nonetheless, despite major improvements in the outcome of these patients, long-term side effects of radio- and chemotherapy affect both patient survival and quality of life, independent of the oncological prognosis. Chemotherapy-related cardiac dysfunction is one of the most notorious short-term side effects of anticancer treatment, occurring in ~10% of patients. Progression to overt heart failure carries a strikingly poor prognosis with a 2-year mortality rate of 60%...
