BACKGROUND: The early and correct diagnosis of cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) infections is critical given that early aggressive treatment with complete removal of the system along with antimicrobial therapy dramatically improves outcomes. Pocket infection manifested by local signs of inflammation is the most common form of CIED infections. Conditions mimicking pocket infection have been described in the literature. These include various types of malignancy and rarely allergic reactions/contact dermatitis to pacemaker compounds...

Surface electrocardiograms, both resting 12-lead electrocardiographs and ambulatory electrocardiograph monitoring, play an essential role in establishing indications for cardiac implantable electronic devices (pacemakers, cardiac implantable defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization therapies), and in the evaluation of patients already implanted. Current devices have prolonged memory capabilities (defined as Holter functions) and remote monitoring functions, to evaluate the electrical properties and the automatic detection of arrhythmias...

The question of the possibility of MRI scanning in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) appeared simultaneously with the introduction of MRI in clinical practice. A lot of in-vitro, in-vivo and clinical researches were performed to estimate wat going on with CIED in strong magnetic field and is it possible to perform some unified protocol of safe MRI-scanning for these patients. Recommendations were provided, but not for the wide practice. MRI remained strongly contraindicated for CIED patient...

BACKGROUND: Given the prohibitive cost of pacemakers and defibrillators for medically underserved patients in low-income countries, these devices are sometimes recovered from funeral homes for charitable re-implantation. Many devices are implanted near the end of the patients' lives, meaning that recovered devices from funeral homes have the potential for significant remaining longevity. METHODS: After sending letters asking funeral directors in the Philadelphia area to donate explanted pacemakers and defibrillators, 78 devices were recovered...

BACKGROUND: Bioprosthetic (BP) valves have been increasingly used for aortic valve replacement over the last decade. Due to their limited durability, patients presenting with failed BP valves are rising. Valve in Valve - Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (ViV-TAVI) emerged as an alternative to the gold standard redo-Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (redo-SAVR). However, the utility of ViV-TAVI is poorly understood. METHODS: A systematic electronic search of the scientific literature was done in PubMed, EMBASE, SCOPUS, Google Scholar, and ClinicalTrials...

Transcatheter valve-in-valve implantation (ViV-TAVI) has evolved as an alternative to redo surgical valve replacement (redo-SAVR) for high-risk patients with aortic bioprosthetic valve (BPV) dysfunction. The differences in procedural success and outcomes in a large number of patients who underwent ViV-TAVI compared with redo-SAVR for aortic BPV dysfunction are not known. We conducted a meta-analysis of the previously reported studies to determine outcomes after ViV-TAVI and redo-SAVR. PubMed, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar databases were searched for studies that reported comparative outcomes of patients who underwent either ViV-TAVI or redo-SAVR...

Symptomatic bradycardia due to gastric distension is a rarely reported entity in the field of medicine. The mechanism of gastrointestinal distention that contributes to bradycardia is complex. A 75-year-old female with recurrent episodes of dizziness in the setting of gastric distension was found to have severe sinus bradycardia which resolved upon resolution of gastric distension. No structural or functional abnormality of heart was found. The patient was treated with permanent pacemaker implantation due to recurrent episodes of dizziness in the setting of sinus bradycardia...

The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD®, Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA, previously Cameron Health, San Clemente, CA, USA) represents an important milestone in ICD therapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Since the introduction of the S‑ICD in 2010, the device has undergone further development. Based on the unique feature of an entirely extracardiac implantation, the S‑ICD is able to reduce the common perioperative and long-term complications of the usual endovascular implanted ICD systems...
