BACKGROUND: Quadripolar left ventricular (LV) leads are capable of pacing from four different electrodes which allows for easier and more stable intra-operative lead positioning with optimal pacing parameters. We therefore investigated the rate of combined intra-operative and post-operative LV lead related events in quadripolar vs. bipolar LV lead cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) recipients in the real world setting. METHODS: We retrospectively collected data for N = 1441 patients at our institution implanted with quadripolar (n = 292) or bipolar (n = 1149) LV leads from 2012 to 2014 and followed them to the primary end-point of composite lead outcome defined as intra-operative lead implant failure or post-operative lead dislodgement or deactivations...

Oblivious manipulation of the device by the patient is referred to as "Twiddler's" syndrome. It is characterized by the coiling of the pacemaker lead due to the rotation of the pacemaker generator on its long axis. However, the rotation of the pacemaker generator on its transverse axis with subsequent coiling of the pacemaker leads around the pulse generator is called as ''Reel syndrome''. In this case, we present a 69-year-old patient with 'selective' Reel syndrome and postulate the possible explanation for damaged atrial lead...

To the best of our knowledge, for the first time in the literature, we described a congenitally deaf-mute patient with Brugada syndrome (BrS) in whom a mutation in L-type Ca(+2) channel [CACNA1C (Cav1.2α1)] was identified.

BACKGROUND: Inappropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) shocks is a common complication in Brugada syndrome. However, the incidence in recipients of ICD for primary and secondary prevention is unknown. METHOD AND RESULTS: We compared the rate of inappropriate shocks in patients with Brugada syndrome that had an ICD for primary and secondary prevention. We studied 51 patients, 86.5% of whom were males. Their mean age at diagnosis was 47 ± 11 years...

A 60-year-old woman was referred for radiofrequency catheter ablation of narrow QRS tachycardia that was terminated with intravenous adenosine. Twelve-lead ECG showed no baseline preexcitation. Echocardiogram was essentially normal. The electrophysiological study showed a normal AH interval of 114 ms and HV interval of 48 ms during sinus rhythm. Anterograde study demonstrated no dual AV nodal physiology. Atrial pacing protocols easily and reproducibly induced narrow QRS tachycardia (Fig. 1A & 1B). Premature atrial extra (PAE) stimuli were delivered during the tachycardia (Fig...

Management of rhythm related issues might be particularly challenging in patients with congenital heart disease due to complex anatomy and restricted vascular access. The leadless technology appears a suitable and attractive alternative for this population. We describe a patient with single ventricle physiology who successfully underwent implantation of a leadless pacemaker.

In patients with complete venous occlusion requiring venous access for cardiac device lead placement, venous revascularization is a viable option. A percutaneous approach to venous revascularization has gained popularity. This method reduces patient exposure to more invasive therapies. In this case series, we describe two cases of a total venous occlusion that were successfully revascularized using a "wire externalization" technique. This technique requires the use of antegrade and retrograde access.

BACKGROUND: Bileaflet mitral valve prolapse (biMVP) is associated with frequent ventricular ectopy (VE) and malignant ventricular arrhythmia. We examined the effect of mitral valve (MV) surgery on VE burden in biMVP patients. METHODS: We included 32 consecutive patients undergoing MV surgery for mitral regurgitation secondary to biMVP between 1993 and 2012 at Mayo Clinic who had available pre- and post-operative Holter monitoring data. Characteristics of patients with a significant reduction in postoperative VE (group A, defined as >10% reduction in VE burden compared to baseline) were compared with the rest of study patients (group B)...

BACKGROUND: Current guidelines for anticoagulation during left-sided procedures recommend the administration of unfractionated heparin (UFH) with an initial bolus of 50-100 U/kg, followed by continuous infusion to maintain an activated clotting time (ACT) ≥ 300 s. Our objective was to compare the effectiveness of this standard regimen (100 U/kg bolus) to a more aggressive approach (200 U/kg bolus). METHODS: We collected data on a series of consecutive patients undergoing left sided ablation procedures...

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...
