INTRODUCTION: In Switzerland, the first implantation of a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) took place in November 2012. Up until the end of 2016, a total of 111 S-ICDs have been implanted. The aim of this study was to summarise the experience of a tertiary centre in Switzerland and to discuss the results in the context of international registries. METHODS: All patients in whom an S-ICD was implanted between November 2012 and the end of December 2016 at the University Heart Centre Zurich were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: Hemolytic reactions (HRs) are rare serious adverse events after immune globulin (IG) use. Our large claims-based study evaluated occurrence of same-day hemolysis after administration of different IG products and potential risk factors, during the 2008 to 2014 study period. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study using a large commercial administrative database. The study included individuals exposed to IG products as identified by procedure codes...

Aims: Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) shocks are associated with a subsequent increased risk of death, and an elevation of cardiac enzymes has been measured after defibrillation testing (DFT). In an experimental swine study, subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) shocks caused less myocardial damage than traditional ICD shocks. The aim of our study was to investigate the association between S-ICD shock and acute cardiac damage in humans, as evaluated by means of sensitive and highly specific circulating biomarkers...

In the past years, cardiovascular mortality has decreased but despite these cardiovascular diseases are responsible for millions of deaths every year in the world and approximately 25% of which are sudden cardiac death (SCD). Implantable defibrillators (ICD) is proven therapy used in primary and secondary SCD prevention. Currently majority of devices use transvenous leads inserted predominantly into the right heart for both pacing and defibrillation. On the other hand, ICD may cause complica-tions, including inappropriate shocks, device-related infection and lead failure...

BACKGROUND: Up to 40% of patients with transvenous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) experience lead-associated complications and may suffer from high complication rates when lead extraction is indicated. Subcutaneous ICD may represent a feasible alternative; however, the efficacy of the subcutaneous ICD in the detection and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias in patients with hereditary arrhythmia syndromes has not been fully evaluated. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients with primary hereditary arrhythmia syndromes who fulfilled indication for defibrillator placement were eligible for enrollment...

Recent studies have shown that subcutaneous or subfascial pacemaker- and ICD implantation with continued oral anticoagulation therapy is associated with lower risk for bleeding complications, when compared to heparin bridging strategies. However, ICD generators are often implanted submuscularly. We therefore compared the bleeding risk with continued phenprocoumon therapy vs. heparin bridging in patients receiving submuscular ICD implantation. Between 01/2013 and 12/2013, 104 patients with need for oral anticoagulation received submuscular ICD or CRT-D implantation in our institution...

BACKGROUND: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (S-ICD) are an innovative and less invasive alternative to transvenous ICD (TV-ICD) in selected patients. We aimed to investigate the underlying diseases and the specific indications for implanting S-ICD in clinical practice, as well as the prevalence of shock delivery and complications. METHODS AND RESULTS: From December 2012, data of 236 patients (30,5% female; age 48,6±16,8years) were gathered from 12 centres in Austria...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) frequently undergo various surgical procedures and in the past perioperative management involved only placing magnet over the device. New programming features, development of implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD), cardiac resynchronization therapy, and increasing complexity of the operating room equipment have led to new sources of electromagnetic interference (EMI). A comprehensive understanding of the CIED is necessary to provide a timely and optimal care to the patients...

In recent years, there has been a significant evolution in the field of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). Pacemakers can now be leadless, implantable cardioverter defibrillators can be entirely subcutaneous and implantable loop recorders have become miniaturized. Driven by technological advances and an ageing population implant numbers have also steadily increased. These highly prevalent systems are all radio-opaque and are frequently observed on chest radiographs, yet the devices are neither well recognized nor understood...

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...

Congenital left ventricular diverticulum (CLVD) is a rare congenital anomaly and may be associated with fatal adverse events. A previously healthy 20-year-old man collapsed as a result of sudden ventricular fibrillation (VF). Despite intractable VF, he had return of spontaneous circulation with cardiopulmonary resuscitation and subsequent introduction of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). After ECMO was discontinued, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging revealed CLVD at the posterolateral wall of the left ventricle...

BACKGROUND: The eligibility of patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS) for implantation of a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) is not well known. This study aimed to clarify the eligibility of BrS patients for S-ICD using electrocardiography (ECG) at rest and during exercise testing. We also analyzed factors associated with ineligibility for S-ICD from standard 12-lead ECG at rest. METHODS: We enrolled 110 consecutive BrS patients who visited Okayama university hospital from December 2015 to December 2016...

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) was developed to defibrillate ventricular arrhythmias, avoiding drawbacks of transvenous leads. The global EFFORTLESS S-ICD (Evaluation oF FactORs ImpacTing CLinical Outcome and Cost EffectiveneSS of the S-ICD) registry is collecting outcomes in 985 patients during a 5-year follow-up. OBJECTIVES: The primary goal of the EFFORTLESS registry is to determine the safety of the S-ICD by evaluating complications and inappropriate shock rate...

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is recognized as a viable alternative to the transvenous ICD. The safety and efficacy of this device has been demonstrated in Western countries, but studies with S-ICD implantation in Japanese patients have not been reported. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twelve patients received an S-ICD implant in our institute between February and September 2016. All S-ICDs were successfully implanted without complications...

BACKGROUND: Tufted angiomas (TAs) are uncommon benign vascular tumors mostly located cutaneously or subcutaneously in the skin of the neck and upper trunk, which appear during childhood and grow slowly. TAs are a variant of lobular capillary hemangiomas. This is the first study to provide an overview of the current literature in combination with the authors' own clinical experience on this rare entity in the head and neck area with non-dermatological localization. METHODS: A selective Medline and Google Scholar database search was performed...
