INTRODUCTION: Hypospadias surgery has progressed steadily over recent years. There remains considerable variation in the operative management of boys with hypospadias in the UK, and it is therefore difficult to identify acceptable standards with regards to reoperation rates. OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency of reoperations and complications from all centres performing hypospadias surgery in England and to identify variables that influence outcome. METHODS: All children undergoing NHS hypospadias surgery in England between 1999 and 2009 were identified using the Hospital Episode Statistics database...

A patient with Brugada Syndrome implanted with subcutaneous cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) had oversensing episodes treated with S-ICD shocks. Comparable artefacts weren't evocable with S-ICD pocket manipulation. The fluoroscopy excluded S-ICD macroscopic damage. The device extraction revealed undamaged pulse generator and connector, but the lead was inappropriately tunnelled under the sixth rib. Then the S-ICD malfunction was due to lead microscopic damage caused by lead rubbing the rib surface. This article is protected by copyright...

BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are effective in terminating lethal arrhythmias, but little is known about the degree of healthcare utilization (HCU) after ICD therapies. OBJECTIVE: Utilizing data from the Managed Ventricular Pacing (MVP) trial, we sought to identify the incidence and types of HCU in ICD recipients after receiving ICD therapy (shocks or anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP)). METHODS: We analyzed HCU events (ventricular tachyarrhythmia (VTA)-related, heart failure (HF)-related, ICD implant procedure-related, ICD system-related, or other) and their association with ICD therapies (shocked ventricular tachycardia (VT) episode, ATP terminated VT episode, inappropriately shocked episode)...

Background: ASSERT demonstrated that subclinical atrial fibrillation (SCAF) is common in pacemaker patients without prior AF and is associated with increased risk of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism. SCAF episodes vary in duration and little is known about the incidence of different durations of SCAF, or their prognosis. Methods and results: ASSERT followed 2580 patients receiving a pacemaker or ICD, aged >65 years with hypertension, without prior AF. The effect of SCAF duration on subsequent risk of ischemic stroke or embolism was evaluated with time-dependent covariate Cox models...

BACKGROUND: The implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is the standard therapy to prevent sudden cardiac death in patients with coronary artery disease and unstable ventricular tachyarrhythmias. The prospective multinational SMS (Substrate Modification Study) was designed to assess whether prophylactic ablation of the arrhythmogenic substrate reduces or prevents the recurrence of ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation in such patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: Of 111 patients included in an intention-to-treat analysis, 54 were randomly assigned catheter ablation plus ICD implantation (ablation group: 68±8 years; 47 men), whereas 57 were assigned ICD implantation without catheter ablation (ICD-only group: 66±8 years; 46 men)...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is defined as "a non-traumatic, unexpected, fatal event occurring within one hour of the onset of symptoms in an apparently healthy subject", and it causes a fifth of all deaths worldwide. It often occurs in individuals not previously known with cardiac disease, which makes prevention challenging. The mechanism underlying SCD is thought to be a trigger (e.g. ischemia) acting upon a substrate (e.g. scar), causing a lethal arrhythmia. Primary prevention refers to patients at high risk of SCD and secondary prevention to those who have had an aborted episode of SCD...

BACKGROUND: Several national guidelines recommend continuous use of antipsychotic medication after a psychotic episode in order to minimize the risk of relapse. However some studies have identified a subgroup of patients who obtain remission of psychotic symptoms while not being on antipsychotic medication for a period of time. This study investigated the long-term outcome and characteristics of patients in remission of psychotic symptoms with no use of antipsychotic medication at the 10-year follow-up...

Regulatory authorities require that the safety and efficacy of a new high-risk medical device be proven in a Clinical Trial (CT), in which the effects of the device on a group of patients are compared to the effects of the current standard of care. Phase III trials can run for several years, cost millions of dollars, and expose patients to an unproven device. In this paper, we demonstrate how to use a large group of synthetic patients based on computer modeling to improve the planning of a CT so as to increase the chances of a successful trial for implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs)...
