BACKGROUND AND AIM: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is an effective and modern tool used to protect patients at risk of sudden cardiac death from potentially life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. The first S-ICD systems were implanted in Poland in 2014, but since that time the national experience with that therapy has been limited. Our analysis summarizes the single-center experience at the Department of Cardiology and Electrotherapy of the Medical University of Gdansk with the use of S-ICD from the year 2014 to 2017...

PURPOSE: Recent studies suggest that atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased cardiovascular risk and mortality including sudden cardiac death (SCD). According to the Cardiovascular Heath Study cohort, the incident rate of SCD was higher in the AF population (2.9 per 1000 per year) compared with non-AF controls (1.3 per 1000 per year). In this study, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the association between AF and SCD. METHODS: We comprehensively searched the databases of MEDLINE and EMBASE from inception to January 2017...

REVIEW
Richard G Trohman, Parikshit S Sharma
Inadvertent malpositioning of a cardiac implantable electronic device lead into the left ventricle is a rare complication of transvenous pacing and defibrillation. Rapid identification of lead position is critical during implantation and just after the procedure, with immediate correction required if malpositioning is detected. If lead misplacement is discovered late after implantation, the lead should be surgically removed or chronic anticoagulation with warfarin should be instituted.

Left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) are increasingly utilized in the management of patients with advanced heart failure. Many of these patients have or will be considered for cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) such as an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator or cardiac resynchronization therapy device. Frequent interplay is often encountered due to complexity of these devices and the underlying disease states. Proactive management strategies and an awareness of interactions may help reduce adverse events...

The demand for tricuspid valve (TV) surgery has increased continuously these last years. Recent registry data have confirmed that TV repair or replacement carry an increased risk of conduction disorders requiring permanent pacemaker implantation, specifically for patients having multivalve surgery. The implantation of an endocardial right ventricular lead in those patients may impair TV function, and some other approaches may be discussed to avoid traversing the valve. This contemporary review describes the different options currently available for patients requiring pacemaker or defibrillation leads implantation after TV surgery...

Background: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) system has been proven to be an effective therapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in selected patients. Although the Shockless IMPLant Evaluation (SIMPLE) trial has shown that defibrillation threshold (DFT) testing is not necessary for transvenous ICD (TV-ICD) systems, it is still recommended for S-ICD systems. We aimed to study the efficacy and safety of S-ICD implantation without DFT in our Heart Center with the comparison of S-ICD patients' outcome to those with a single chamber TV-ICD without DFT in the same period...

BACKGROUND: The definition of sudden death due to arrhythmia relies on the time interval between onset of symptoms and death. However, not all sudden deaths are due to arrhythmia. In patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) post-mortem device interrogation may help better distinguish the mode of death compared to a time-based definition alone. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to assess the proportion of "sudden" cardiac deaths in patients with an ICD that have confirmed arrhythmia...

BACKGROUND: A proportion of patients who undergo an initial lead extraction procedure will require a second, repeat extraction. Data regarding this clinical entity are scarce and neither the predisposing risk factors for, nor outcomes from these procedures have been described previously. We sought to determine the incidence, risk factors and outcomes of repeat lead extraction. METHODS: A database of extraction procedures from 2001-2015 was analyzed. Repeat extraction procedures were identified and the indication for extraction was dichotomized into infection and lead related problems...
