We present a rare case of tachycardiomyopathy in a 4-year-old girl. The child had incessant atrial tachycardia (AT) and refractory heart failure. Right atrial appendage (RAA) was localised as the source of the ectopic tachycardia. The child underwent successful radiofrequency ablation (RFA) using 3-D electroanatomical mapping. Fluroscopy was used sparingly only to rule out underlying anomalies. The left ventricular functions returned to normal by one month after the procedure. RAA AT is rare in very young children and usually necessitates surgical appendectomies...

We report the case of a 74-year-old man with a previously implanted pacemaker lead. He had undergone Medtronic™ Micra Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS, Medtronic plc, MN, USA) implantation because of lead fracture. We implanted a new TPS and retrieved the dislodged one. We used a multiple-loop snare (EN snare® ) and an 8.5F steerable sheath (Agilis NXT; St. Jude Medical, St Paul, MN, USA). The TPS was obstructed by the chordae tendineae of the tricuspid valve and the pacemaker lead. We pushed the TPS to the apex site; this enabled us to move the TPS away from the chordae tendineae and pacemaker lead...

BACKGROUND: Although a rare complication of catheter based ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF), atrioesophageal fistula (AEF) is a serious and fatal event [1-5]. Most reports of AEF are single cases or small case series. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to perform a comprehensive literature search of all published atrioesophageal fistula following catheter ablation for AF in order to identify the mortality rates associated with therapeutic modalities and suggest the most definitive management in reducing mortality...

Electrical storm (ES) is a life threatening clinical situation. Though a few clinical pointers exist, the occurrence of ES in a patient with remote myocardial infarction (MI) is generally unpredictable. Genetic markers for this entity have not been studied. In the present study, we carried out genetic screening in patients with remote myocardial infarction presenting with ES by next generation sequencing and identified 25 rare variants in 19 genes predominantly in RYR2, SCN5A, KCNJ11, KCNE1 and KCNH2, CACNA1B, CACNA1C, CACNA1D and desmosomal genes - DSP and DSG2 that could potentially be implicated in electrical storm...

Complete atrioventricular (AV) block in association with Takotsubo syndrome (TS) has been well recognized, but the cause and effect relationship has not been elucidated. We describe a 78-year-old female who presented with complete AV block but one week later developed new-onset, diffuse T-wave inversions, QT prolongation, and acceleration of junctional escape rate. Left ventriculogram revealed features typical of TS. One year after permanent pacemaker implantation, complete AV block persisted despite the reversal of wall motion defects implying that conduction abnormality was the trigger of TS rather than its consequence...

This report describes the occurrence of desynchronization in a patient with a cardiac resynchronization device programmed with an active pacemaker-mediated tachycardia algorithm based on AV delay modification. Desynchronization was precipitated by sinus tachycardia and the abrupt return of the prevailing AV delay that followed the periodic prolongation of the AV delay mandated by activity of the algorithm. Prevention of desynchronization in this setting requires programming a right ventricular upper rate interval longer than the sum of the programmed ventriculoatrial interval and the AV delay...

In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) having congenital anatomical abnormalities, such as complete situs inversus and dextrocardia, pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) ablation can be performed safety using a three-dimensional electroanatomical mapping system. However, it is not clear whether a three-dimensional electroanatomical mapping system can be used to detect non-PV ectopic beats initiating AF in patients with complete situs inversus and dextrocardia. Here, we report a 21-year-old man with complete situs inversus and dextrocardia, who showed AF caused by non-PV ectopic beats...

Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is an uncommon congenital anomaly. We report a case of implantation of cardiac resynchronization therapy - pacemaker (CRT-P) device in a 38-year-old lady with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. After left axillary vein puncture, we faced an unexpected entry of left subclavian to PLSVC draining into the coronary sinus (CS). The target posterolateral vein which had been identified before, seemed to have an acute angle at its entry into the CS. Hence, at this stage we were in a dilemma, whether to switch to the right side or to continue from the same side...

Vasovagal syncope is characterized by vasodilatation and/or bradycardia and thereby a fall in arterial BP and global cerebral perfusion in response to a trigger. Although it is a benign condition, patients with frequent and traumatic episodes need treatment in order to improve quality of life. We describe the case of a 17-years-old boy suffering from cardioinhibitory syncope. At the end of a complete negative cardiac and neurological examination, a loop recorder was implanted. During the subsequent follow-up the ILR documented a 9-s pause...

BACKGROUND: Atrial tissue fibrosis can cause electrical or structural remodeling in patients with atrial fibrillation. Transforming growth factor beta 1(TGF-β1) signaling acts as a central role in fibroblast activation. In this report, we aimed to investigate the relationship between serum level of TGF-β1 and mean left atrial voltage in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF). METHODS: A total of 16 consecutive adult patients with CAF who underwent catheter ablation were enrolled...

A 69-year-old woman with palpitations was referred to our hospital for a second session of atrial fibrillation (AF) catheter ablation. She had a history of AF ablation including pulmonary vein (PV) isolation and persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) isolation. Electrophysiologic studies showed the veno-atrial connections that had recovered. After PV isolation was performed, AF was induced by atrial premature contraction (APC) from the PLSVC, and AF storm occurred. During PLSVC isolation, AF was not induced by APC from the PLSVC...

The cutdown technique for the cephalic vein is a common access route for transvenous cardiac device leads (TVLs), and sometimes one cephalic vein can accomodate two TVLs. We examined a novel ligation technique to balance the hemostasis and lead maneuverability for this two-in-one insertion. A total of 22 patients scheduled for cardiac device implantations with two or more leads were enrolled. The ipsilateral cephalic vein was identified for inserting the TVLs with a cutdown. If two TVLs could be introduced into one cephalic vein, hemostasis was established by ligating the venous wall between the TVLs...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is indicated in symptomatic heart failure (HF) patients after achieving optimal medical therapy. However, there are still a large percentage of patients who do not respond to CRT. Malnutrition is a frequent comorbidity in patients with HF, and it is associated with a poorer prognosis. Here, we evaluate the nutritional status of patients assessed by Controlling Nutritional Status (CONUT) score and its association with structural remodeling and cardiovascular events...

Many patients receiving cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) suffer from permanent atrial fibrillation (AF). Knowledge of the atrial rhythm is important to direct pharmacological or interventional treatment as well as maintaining AV-synchronous biventricular pacing if sinus rhythm can be restored. A single pass single-coil defibrillator lead with a floating atrial bipole has been shown to obtain reliable information about the atrial rhythm but has never been employed in a CRT-system. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of implanting a single coil right ventricular ICD lead with a floating atrial bipole and the signal quality of atrial electrograms (AEGM) in CRT-defibrillator recipients with permanent AF...

Implantation of temporary pacemaker lead is commonly performed procedure and is usually safe, but can sometimes develop rare and serious complication like intracardiac lead knotting which may require challenging retrieval techniques. We report a case of successful percutaneous retrieval of unusually knotted right internal jugular venous temporary pacing lead via left femoral transvenous approach using snare over a long sheath after cutting the electrode proximally and thus avoiding any surgical intervention...
