BACKGROUND: Pocket hematoma is one of the most common complications following cardiac device implantation. This study examined the impact of this complication on in-hospital outcomes following Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) implantation. METHODS: Data from Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) 2010 was queried to identify all primary implantations of ICDs and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillators (CRT-D) during the year 2010 using ICD-9 codes...

PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to define the atrial electrical substrate in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) occurring in the absence of overt structural heart disease and to assess if electrophysiological parameters could predict AF recurrence after radiofrequency ablation in this population. METHODS AND RESULTS: 45 consecutive patients (39 male, age 59 ± 10 years) with paroxysmal AF and without overt structural heart disease, referred for radiofrequency catheter ablation, were prospectively enrolled...

P-wave dispersion (PWD, Pd or Pdis) is a noninvasive electrocardiographic (ECG) marker for atrial remodeling and predictor for atrial fibrillation (AF). PWD is defined as the difference between the widest and the narrowest P-wave duration recorded from the 12 ECG leads. Increased P-wave duration and PWD reflect prolongation of intraatrial and interatrial conduction time with lack of a well-coordinated conduction system within the atrial muscles, with inhomogeneous, asynchronic, pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory effect mediated by interleukin-6 (IL-6) in patients with the CG + GG genotype IL-6 -634C/G polymorphism [1] and discontinuous propagation of sinus impulses mainly between the left and right atria, interstitial/extracellular fibroblast activation and collagen deposition with fibrosis (via TGF-β) in atrial tissue, insufficient blood supply, significant not isotropic myoelectric activity, and thin wall thickness and consequent expansion tendency all well-known electrophysiological characteristics in patients with atrial arrhythmias and especially paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) [2]...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a major cause of mortality secondary to coronary artery disease (CAD) in the industrialized societies. Although South Asians have a high prevalence of CAD, the frequency and underlying pathology of SCD among this population are unknown. METHODS: Medical records of consecutive patients presenting with unexplained sudden death (USD) in a tertiary care center were reviewed. Patients with trauma, violent deaths, positive toxicology and non-cardiac pathology were excluded to determine sudden cardiac death (SCD)...

BACKGROUND: The goal of this study is to assess the effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) over time on renal function and its impact on mortality. The effect of CRT on renal function in patients with heart failure is not well understood. METHODS: All patients who underwent CRT implantation at University of Kansas between year 2000 and 2009 were reviewed and patients who had pre and post CRT renal function studied were included in our study. Stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) were defined based on Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (KDOQI) guidelines...

Synchronized left ventricular pacing (sLVP) via adaptive cardiac resynchronization therapy (aCRT) algorithm might enhance the efficacy of CRT. A 71-year-old female was admitted with the diagnosis of heart failure. Electrocardiograms revealed left bundle branch block with QRS width of 144 ms, and frequent premature ventricular complexes (PVCs). A CRT device was implanted, and sLVP via a CRT algorithm was provided. Frequent PVCs arising from the His-bundle suppressed effective sLVP percentage. Radiofrequency application at the His-bundle successfully eliminated the PVCs, but induced complete atrioventricular (AV) block, leading to loss of sLVP...

INTRODUCTION: Atrial fibrillation is the most common sustained heart arrhythmia. Premature beats arising from foci other than pulmonary veins have been related to its pathogenesis. METHODS AND RESULTS: A 64-year-old female underwent superior vena cava (SVC) isolation after triggers were identified originating from the SVC following pulmonary vein isolation; immediately after SVC isolation, she developed junctional rhythm with symptomatic hypotension requiring emergent management...

REVIEW

ECG monitoring is common place in the hospital and even pre-hospital setting. The need for different types of lead systems in different settings has been emphasised. Simple three electrode bipolar recording is ubiquitous for monitoring. This can be used to record modified bipolar chest leads as well. Using five leads gives the option of getting a chest lead in addition to bipolar limb leads, enhancing detection of ischemia during procedures. Lead stability is important when the movement of the subject is maximum as in exercise testing...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of ventricular arrhythmias from right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) during long-term follow-up. METHODS: A follow-up analysis was conducted using an in-house questionnaire, as well as a qualitative assessment of the patients' medical records. The study population of 34 patients had a previous diagnosis of idiopathic VT or frequent PVCs from the RVOT, and received RFA treatment between 2002 and 2005...

OBJECTIVES: To study the impact of contact force (CF) sensing on fluoroscopy, procedure, left atrial (LA) and ablation times and number of ablations during atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation is an effective treatment for symptomatic AF. Recently a new ablation catheter providing real-time CF has been approved for use. METHODS: A nested case-control study was performed comparing radiofrequency ablation of AF using the irrigated CF-sensing ThermoCool SmartTouch catheter versus open-irrigated ThermoCool SF catheter (Biosense Webster, Inc...

The implant indication of cardiac electronic devices continues to expand; therefore, we have observed increasing complications related to their removal. We describe the case of a patient who presented with prolonged bloodstream infection after having undergone removal of a pacemaker. After extensive workup for fever of unknown origin and antibiotic therapy without any improvement, it was possible to demonstrate a foreign body in the right subclavian vein and superior vena cava corresponding to the distal part of the right ventricular lead...

Apart from Coronary artery disease, left ventricular tachycardia may result from cardiac sarcoidosis, left ventricular tumor, chagas disease and idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia. We report a rare case of incessant left ventricular tachycardia resulting from left dominant arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy.

Patients with congenital heart disease often present unique challenges, especially in the electrophysiology laboratory. Here we present a case of a patient with medically refractory symptomatic atrial tachycardia, tricuspid atresia and a history of a modified Fontan procedure. The approach of an AV node ablation for palliation in our patient was met with challenges in identification of a His-bundle recording and successful ablation after identification of the His-bundle recording from a left sided approach...
