Introduction: T wave oversensing (TWOS) is a major drawback of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and data on predictors of TWOS in ICD is limited. We aimed to calculate a novel index of T wave safety margin (TWSM) and assess its potential for evaluating TWOS during the procedure of ICD implantation. Methods and Results: Thirty-two consecutive patients with ICD implantation were enrolled. During each procedure of ICD implantation, different ICD generators were connected to implanted sensing lead through active-fixation leads and bridging cables...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) represents a major cause of death among patients with heart failure. While scar-based, macro-reentrant ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF) is the primary etiology for SCD among patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy, a more diverse set of mechanisms and substrates are likely at play for the diverse group of patients characterized by non-ischemic, dilated cardiomyopathy (NICM). These causes may include scar-based re-entry, but also neurohormonal stimulation (sympathetic, parasympathetic, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone), inflammation, and non-arrhythmic processes occurring in the context of a genetic predisposition...

BACKGROUND: The estimated incidence of infected cardiac implantable electric devices (CIED) has recently increased to 1-2% in Japan. Extraction of long-term implanted devices is generally difficult. There are few reports about lead extraction in Japan. We describe our experience with and outcomes of lead extraction using excimer lasers, mechanical sheaths, and manual extraction. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the characteristics, types of devices, and indications for extraction in 29 patients with 67 leads who required CIED lead extraction at Shinshu University Hospital between April 2014 and October 2016...

BACKGROUND: A proportion of patients who receive cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) with defibrillator (CRT-D) live to receive a second generator. Controversy exists on whether an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) should be offered to patients who have normalized or near normalized left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) at the time of generator replacement (GR). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate incidence of appropriate ICD therapy after CRT-D GR. METHODS: This series involved 1,026 consecutive patients who underwent CRT-D implant between January 2002 and December 2012...

BACKGROUND: A chronic total occlusion (CTO) is common in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survivors with coronary artery disease. It is unclear whether a CTO contributes to ventricular arrhythmias in this population. OBJECTIVE: This study sought to evaluate the impact of unrevascularized CTO's on the occurrence of appropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy and all-cause mortality in OHCA survivors with coronary artery disease. METHODS: This was a retrospective study that included all consecutive OHCA survivors with coronary artery disease who received an ICD from 1999 until 2015...

Patients with childhood heart disease are living longer and entering adulthood, and may undergo implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation to reduce the risk of sudden death. We evaluated the characteristics of adult patients with congenital heart disease or left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy (LVNC) in the National Cardiovascular Disease Registry ICD Registry and determined ICD-related in-hospital complications. Patients with LVNC or transposition of the great arteries, tetralogy of Fallot, Ebstein's anomaly, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, or common ventricle were identified in the registry...

BACKGROUND: In clinical trials, manufacturer-specific, strategic programming of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), including faster detection rates, reduces unnecessary therapy but permits therapy for ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation (VF). Present consensus recommends a generic rate threshold between 185 and 200 beats per minute, which exceeds the rate tested in clinical trials for some manufacturers. In a case series, we sought to determine the relationship between programmed parameters and failure of modern ICDs to treat VF...

BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) recipients require close follow-up that can be difficult for patients who have to travel long distances for clinic follow-up. We aimed to compare clinical outcomes between ICD patients followed-up in a telemedicine video-conferencing clinic (TMVC) and a conventional in-person clinic (CIC). We hypothesized that outcomes of patients followed in the TMVC are noninferior to the CIC. METHODS AND RESULTS: This retrospective study compares time to first appropriate ICD therapy, time to first inappropriate ICD therapy, time to first shock, and overall survival in patients followed in TMVC compared with CIC between 2001 and 2016...

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) was established in 1999 to provide evidence-based guidance. The task of producing guidance by reviewing primary research data and using an advisory committee to develop evidence-based recommendations, is not straightforward. Guidance production is, however, less challenging than the task of putting evidence-based recommendations into practice.NICE is very sensitive to this challenge as, since 1999, over 1500 pieces of NICE guidance have been published...

Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy is an inherited heart muscle disorder, predisposing to sudden cardiac death, particularly in young patients and athletes. Pathological features include loss of myocytes and fibrofatty replacement of right ventricular myocardium; biventricular involvement is often observed. It is a cell-to-cell junction cardiomyopathy, typically caused by genetically determined abnormalities of cardiac desmosomes, which leads to detachment of myocytes and alteration of intracellular signal transduction...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder that is characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy unexplained by secondary causes and a nondilated left ventricle with preserved or increased ejection fraction. It is commonly asymmetrical with the most severe hypertrophy involving the basal interventricular septum. Left ventricular outflow tract obstruction is present at rest in about one third of the patients and can be provoked in another third. The histological features of HCM include myocyte hypertrophy and disarray, as well as interstitial fibrosis...

Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi) infection is endemic in Latin America and is becoming a worldwide health burden. It may lead to heterogeneous phenotypes. Early diagnosis of T. cruzi infection is crucial. Several biomarkers have been reported in Chagas heart disease (ChHD), but most are nonspecific for T. cruzi infection. Prognosis of ChHD patients is worse compared with other etiologies, with sudden cardiac death as an important mode of death. Most ChHD patients display diffuse myocarditis with fibrosis and hypertrophy...

Cardiac arrest is defined as the termination of cardiac activity associated with loss of consciousness, of spontaneous breathing, and of circulation. Sudden cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death (SCD) are terms often used interchangeably. Most patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest have shown coronary artery disease or symptoms during the hour before the event. Cardiac arrest is potentially reversible by cardiopulmonary resuscitation, defibrillation, cardioversion, cardiac pacing, or treatments targeted at the underlying disease (e...

Transvenous pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation procedures are usually performed under local anesthetic, and prilocaine is the most common agent to be used. The data regarding methemoglobinemia after cardiac device implantation are scarce. Thus, presently described is the case of a 47-year-old female patient with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia who underwent ICD implantation for secondary prophylaxis and developed cyanosis as a result of prilocaine-associated methemoglobinemia...
