BACKGROUND: The Senning and Mustard operations for DTGA are associated with a heightened risk for supraventricular tachycardia. Catheter ablation has been shown to be acutely successful for achieving rhythm control in this population, but the mechanisms of recurrence are ill-defined. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that the type and degree of recurrence would vary by the surgical technique employed. METHODS: All consecutive catheter ablation procedures for DTGA after Mustard/Senning operation between 2004 and 2016 at a single center were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The risk of permanent pacemaker implantation (PPI) after cardiac valve replacement surgery is thought be highest in the post-operative period. Long-term risks are uncertain. OBJECTIVE: To determine rates and timing of PPI after valve replacement surgery. METHODS: We compared PPI rates patients undergoing aortic (AVR, n = 111,674), mitral (MVR, n = 18,402) valve replacement, AVR+MVR (n = 5,166) or AVR + MVR and tricuspid valve replacement (TVR, n = 114) or CABG without valve replacement (n=249,742)...

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (S-ICD) provides an alternative to the transvenous ICD (TV-ICD) for prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD), but has not been well studied in the most commonly treated TV-ICD patient population, namely primary prevention (PP) patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. OBJECTIVE: These analyses were designed to compare clinical outcomes for PP patients with and without a reduced ejection fraction (EF) and secondary prevention (SP) patients implanted with the S-ICD...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is a primary cardiomyopathy that can present with recurrent ventricular arrhythmias (VAs). Data on the benefit of catheter ablation (CA) of VAs in LVNC are lacking. OBJECTIVES: To describe the electrophysiologic features and outcomes of CA of VAs in LVNC. METHODS: The cohort consisted of 9 patients (age 42±15 years) with diagnosis of LVNC based upon established criteria and VA (VT in 3 and frequent PVCs in 6) despite treatment with a mean of 2±1 antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs)...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with several cardiovascular conditions. Some pacemakers feature specific algorithms detecting respiratory cycles and deriving indexes well correlated with identification of polysomnography-confirmed severe OSA. OBJECTIVE: To analyze respiratory disturbances measured by a validated algorithm in clinical practice, describe their variations over time and their association with atrial fibrillation. METHODS: Fifty-eight patients implanted with dual-chamber LivaNova Reply 200DR or Kora 100DR pacemakers measuring a Respiratory Disturbance Index (RDI) were included...

BACKGROUND: The pathophysiological mechanism of J wave in anterior leads (A-leads) and inferolateral leads (L-leads) remains unclear. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the onset mode and circadian distribution of ventricular tachyarrhythmia (VTA) episodes in patients with early repolarization syndrome (ERS) and Brugada syndrome (BrS). METHODS: The study enrolled 35 ERS patients and 52 type 1 BrS patients with spontaneous ventricular fibrillation who were divided into four groups: ERS(A+L) (n=15), ERS patients who had non-type 1 Brugada-pattern electrocardiogram (ECG) in any A-leads (2(nd) to 4(th) intercostal spaces) in control and/or after drug provocation tests; ERS(L) (n=20), ERS with J wave only in L-leads; BrS(A) (n=24), BrS without J wave in L-leads; and, BrS(A+L) (n=28), BrS with J wave in L-leads...

BACKGROUND: Electrical heterogeneity (EH) during cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) may vary with different left ventricular (LV) pacing sites. OBJECTIVE: The study aims to evaluate the relationship between such changes and acute hemodynamic response (AHR). METHODS: Two EH metrics, standard deviation of activation times (SDAT) and mean left thorax activation time (LTAT), were computed from isochronal maps based on 53-electrode body-surface mapping (BSM) during baseline AAI pacing and biventricular pacing (BiVp) from different pacing sites in coronary veins in 40 CRT-indicated patients...

BACKGROUND: The achievement of -40°C within 60 seconds has proven to independently predict durable PV isolation in the setting of second generation cryoballoon (CB-A; Medtronic; USA) ablation. OBJECTIVE: In the present study, we sought to evaluate a strategy based on the attainment of the specific parameter of -40°C within the first 60 seconds during cryoenergy applications in the setting of CB-A without the use of an inner lumen mapping catheter (ILMC) (Achieve; Medtronic, USA) for the visualisation of real time recordings (RTR)...

BACKGROUND: Electrical activation is important in CRT response. Standard ECG analysis may not accurately reflect the heterogeneity of electrical activation. OBJECTIVE: We compared changes in LV size and function following CRT to native electrical dyssynchrony and its change during pacing. METHODS: Body-surface isochronal maps utilizing 53 anterior and posterior electrodes, and 12-lead ECGs, were acquired following CRT in 66 consecutive patients...

BACKGROUND: The mapping of ventricular arrhythmias in humans using a mini-basket 64-electrode catheter paired with a novel automatIc mapping system (Rhythmia(TM)) has not been evaluated. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of mapping ventricular arrhythmias and clinical outcomes after ablation using this system. METHODS: Electroanatomic (EA) maps for ventricular arrhythmias were obtained during 20 consecutive procedures in 19 patients (ventricular tachycardia [VT] 12; ventricular ectopy [VE] 7)...

BACKGROUND: The Micra transcatheter pacemaker was designed to have similar functionality to conventional transvenous VVIR pacing systems. It provides rate adaptive pacing using a programmable 3-axis accelerometer designed to detect patient activity in the presence of cardiac motion. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the system's performance during treadmill tests to maximum exertion in a subset of patients within the Micra TPS Global Clinical Trial. METHODS: Patients underwent treadmill testing at 3 or 6-months post-implant with algorithm programming at physician discretion...
