Transvenous pacing in patients with postoperative complex congenital heart disease (CHD) can be challenging and pose technical challenges to lead placement because of the complex anatomy, distortions produced by the surgical procedures, and the altered relationship of cardiac chambers. We describe the utility of angiography for transvenous dual chamber pacemaker implantation in a post-operative complex congenital heart disease.

INTRODUCTION: Posteroseptal accessory pathways account for 34.5% of the total. Of these, 36% are located within the coronary sinus (CS). Its ablation requires technical alternatives to avoid damage to surrounding tissues, especially branches of the right coronary artery. CASE REPORT: A 22-year-old man was referred for re-do ablation of an accessory left septal-septal (PSE) pathway. Inside the CS, a precocity of 25 ms was found in the region of the median cardiac vein (VCM) (Fig...

Cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) procedures are being done by many operators/centers and it is projected that this therapy will remarkably increase in India in the coming years. This document by IHRS, aims at guiding the Indian medical community in the appropriate use and method of implantation with emphasis on implanter training and center preparedness to deliver a safe and effective therapy to patients with cardiac rhythm disorders and heart failure.

Venous revascularization is an approach used in patients with total venous occlusion requiring venous access for cardiac device lead placement. Several percutaneous approaches to venous revascularization have been proposed. For the first time, we describe the case of a 69-year-old male with total venous occlusion who was successfully revascularized using a 'diathermy' technique.

We conducted a review of the literature regarding epidemiology, clinical, electrocardiographic and vectorcardiographic aspects, classification, and differential diagnosis of left posterior fascicular block. Isolated left posterior fascicular block (LPFB) is an extremely rare finding both in the general population and in specific patient groups. In isolated LPFB 20% of the vectorcardiographic (VCG) QRS loop is located in the right inferior quadrant and when associated with right bundle branch block (RBBB) ≥40%...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary vein (PV) reconduction after PV isolation (PVI) unmasked by adenosine is associated with a higher risk for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) recurrence. It is unknown if the reconnected PVs after adenosine testing and immediate re-ablation can predict reconnection and reconnection patterns of PVs at repeat procedures. We assessed reconnection of PVs with and without dormant-conduction (DC) during the first and the repeat procedure. METHODS: We included 67 patients undergoing PVI for PAF and a second procedure for PAF recurrence...

BACKGROUND: Congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) is an inheritable arrhythmic disorder which is linked to at least 17 genes. The clinical characteristics and genetic mutations may be variable among different population groups and they have not yet been studied in Thai population. METHODS: Clinical characteristics were retrospectively reviewed from children and young adults with congenital long QT syndrome whose blood samples were sent for genotyping during 1998-2017...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to analyze whether local application of 3% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) additionally to standard antibiotic prophylaxis following implantation of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) reduces the incidence of pocket infections (PI). METHODS: In this observational case-control study every patient from the group additionally treated with H2O2 was matched with two patients out of the control group for age, male-gender, body-mass-index and operation time...

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. Fluoroscopy 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: Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) lead parameters may deteriorate due to right ventricular (RV) disease such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), with implications for safe delivery of therapies. We compared ICD and CRT-D (cardiac resynchronisation therapy-defibrillator) lead parameters in patients with ARVC and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). METHODS: RV lead sensing (R wave amplitude) and pacing (threshold and amplitude-pulse width product (APWP)), left ventricular (LV) pacing (APWP), and imaging parameter trends were assessed in 18 patients with ARVC and 18 with DCM...

BACKGROUND: Pacing from RV mid septum and outflow tract septum has been proposed as a more physiological site of pacing and narrower paced QRS complex duration. The paced QRS morphology and duration in different RV pacing sites is under continued discussion. Hence, this study was designed to address the correlation of pacing sites in right ventricle with paced QRS complex duration. METHODS: Two hundred fifty-two consecutive patients who underwent pacemaker implantation were enrolled...

We report the case of an 84-year-old female with symptomatic bradycardia due to a complete atrioventricular block, who carried absent right and persistent left superior vena cava (SVC). Implantation of a pacing lead, particularly within the right ventricle (RV) in a patient with this venous anomaly is accompanied by technical difficulties. However, the apparatus consisting of a fixed-curve sheath (Model C315-S10, Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, USA) and a lumenless fixed-screw pacing lead (Model 3830, Medtronic), allowed a rapid delivery into the RV without any complications...

INTRODUCTION: With the recent publication of the negative DANISH trial, the mortality benefit of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) has been put in question in patients with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM). Because a majority of patients in DANISH receive cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices, we investigated in the present study the survival of recipients of CRT pacemakers (CRT-P) versus CRT ICDs (CRT-D) in a cohort of older (≥75 years) NICM patients at our institution...
