Vasovagal syncope is characterized by vasodilatation and/or bradycardia and thereby a fall in arterial BP and global cerebral perfusion in response to a trigger. Although it is a benign condition, patients with frequent and traumatic episodes need treatment in order to improve quality of life. We describe the case of a 17-years-old boy suffering from cardioinhibitory syncope. At the end of a complete negative cardiac and neurological examination, a loop recorder was implanted. During the subsequent follow-up the ILR documented a 9-s pause...

Congenital heart disease patients are considered a unique group of patients regarding their high risk of conduction abnormalities , whether de novo or surgically induced , and the challenges in both implantation and management of device related complications. We present a case of a pacemaker-dependent patient with congenital heart disease who experienced complications of both previous epicardial and transvenous pacing which rendered her a non-suitable candidate of both routes.

Implantable cardiac pacemakers have seen remarkable progress in the last sixty years and remained as cornerstone therapy for symptomatic bradycardia. Despite this progress the current day traditional transvenous implanted pacemaker systems are limited by the need for a surgically created pocket for the generator, indwelling leads in the vascular system and lastly passage through the tricuspid valve. A majority of the implant and explant related complications are due to the surgical pocket and indwelling leads...

With the advent of "wireless" endocardial pacing, the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator, and leadless pacemakers comes an added layer of complexity to the perioperative management of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIED). Since no formal recommendations currently exist for these new CIED technologies, preoperative identification of these devices, understanding their functionality, and developing an individualized perioperative management plan are imperative for the anesthesiologist...

BACKGROUND: Leadless pacemaker can be considered as a technical revolution in cardiac pacing devices, with clear advantages over conventional pacemakers in overcoming all lead related complications. However, the management of these devices once they reach the end of life of the battery is still controversial. In the next years there will be an increase in the need to define a clear strategy in the management of leadless PM once they reach their EOL. Safe extraction of these devices will define in a great manner this strategy METHODS: We performed the extraction of three functioning Nanostim leadless pacemaker prophylactically in two females and one male patients part of the Nanostim battery depletion field action recommendation...

AIM: Leadless cardiac pacemaker has been developed to reduce complications related to cardiac pacing and is considered as an alternative to conventional pacemaker although safety and efficacy data in clinical practice are limited. The purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy profile of Micra Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) used in daily clinical activity with a focus on challenging cases for conventional pacing. METHODS: A total of 66 patients (46 men, 79...

Electrogenesis in the heart begins in the sinoatrial node and proceeds down the conduction system to originate the heartbeat. Conduction system disorders lead to slow heart rates that are insufficient to support the circulation, necessitating implantation of electronic pacemakers. The typical electronic pacemaker consists of a subcutaneous generator and battery module attached to one or more endocardial leads. New leadless pacemakers can be implanted directly into the right ventricular apex, providing single-chamber pacing without a subcutaneous generator...

Leadless cardiac pacemakers (LCP) have become available recently. Both its acute and long-term performance in a large population of patients remain to be tested. Subacute rise in pacing threshold has been reported as an uncommon complication. On the other hand, the retrieval technique for LCP with passive fixation mechanism has not been previously described in details. Herein we report a newly recognized complication of an acute rise in pacing threshold very soon after implantation of an LCP without radiographic dislodgement...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Pacing technology for many decades has been composed of a generator attached to leads that are usually transvenous. Recently, leadless pacemakers have been studied in clinical settings and now available for use in many countries. This includes the single-component Nanostim Leadless Cardiac Pacemaker and Micra Transcatheter Pacing System, as well as the multicomponent Wireless Stimulation Endocardial system. RECENT FINDINGS: Clinical studies in single-component leadless pacing technology has shown that they can be successfully implanted with minimal complications...

The clinically available leadless pacemakers for patients with a single-chamber pacing indication have shown to be safe and effective. However, the optimal end-of-life strategy of this novel technique is undefined. Suggested strategies comprise of (a) placing an additional leadless device adjacent to the leadless pacemaker, or (b) retrieving the non-functioning leadless pacemaker and subsequently implanting a new device. Although initial studies demonstrate promising results, early experience of acute and mid-term retrieval feasibility and safety remains mixed...

Traditional transvenous cardiac pacemakers have pitfalls due to lead- and device pocket-related complications. Leadless pacemakers were developed and introduced into clinical practice to overcome the shortcomings of traditional transvenous pacemakers. In this review, we provide a description of leadless pacemaker devices, and summarize existing data on device performance. We also describe associated complications during implantation procedure as well as during the follow-up period. Although current generation devices are limited to single-chamber pacing, future generation devices are expected to progress to multi-chamber multi-component pacing systems, and eventually to battery-less devices...

Ictal asystole due to sinus node suppression is a cause of sudden unexplained death in epilepsy. Here, for the first time, we describe a complete atrioventricular nodal block in a patient with non-compressive traumatic subdural hematoma, who developed ictal asystole as a delayed presentation. A leadless VVI pacemaker (ventricular paced, ventricular sensed, and pacing inhibited in response to a sensed beat) was implanted as a preventive measure against seizure-related heart block.

Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (S-ICDs) provide effective defibrillation, while also reducing the risk of long-term lead problems. However, S-ICDs do not offer bradycardia or antitachycardia pacing and therefore use has been limited. Combined implantation of an S-ICD with a leadless pacemaker (LP) has been proposed to overcome this limitation. Although a handful of combined S-ICD/LP implantations have been reported for Nanostim (St Jude Medical, St Paul, MN) as well as Micra LP (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) systems, none have documented delivery of appropriate shock therapies for spontaneous ventricular tachycardia...

REVIEW
Jordan S Leyton-Mange, Theofanie Mela
Cardiac resynchronization therapy has emerged as the gold standard for heart failure patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and electrical dyssynchrony from an intrinsic intraventricular conduction delay or right ventricular pacing. However, the limits imposed by the coronary sinus venous anatomy restrict the applicability of the technology for many potential recipients. Furthermore, conventional resynchronization, by virtue of utilizing a single site of epicardial origin for left ventricular activation, is non-physiological...
