Atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATAs) occur in a significant proportion of Brugada syndrome (BrS) patients and are often an important cause of inappropriate shocks. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the incidence of ATAs and ATA-induced inappropriate shocks in early repolarization syndrome (ERS) patients as compared to BrS patients.We analyzed data from 20 consecutive patients who were diagnosed with ERS and compared them with patients diagnosed with BrS (n = 31). Clinical and ICD interrogation data were collected and analyzed for all events with ICD shocks...

STUDY DESIGN: Comparison between national administrative databases and a prospective multicenter physician managed database. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to assess the applicability of National Administrative Databases (NADs) in Adult Spinal Deformity (ASD). Our hypothesis is that NADs do not include comparable patients as in a physician-managed database (PMD) for surgical outcomes in adult spinal deformity. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: NADs such as National Inpatient Sample (NIS) and National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) provide large numbers of publications owing to ease of data access and lack of IRB approval requirement...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the possible electromagnetic interferences (EMI) in the single-engine fixed-wing aircraft environment with implantable cardio-defibrillators (ICDs). Our hypothesis is that EMI in the cockpit of a single-engine fixed-wing aircraft does not result in erroneous detection of arrhythmias and the subsequent delivery of an inappropriate device therapy. METHODS: ICD devices of four different manufacturers, incorporated in a thorax phantom, were transported in a Piper Dakota Aircraft with ICAO type designator P28B during several flights...

The Injury Severity Score (ISS) is a measure of injury severity widely used for research and quality assurance in trauma. Calculation of ISS requires chart abstraction, so it is often unavailable for patients cared for in nontrauma centers. Whether ISS can be accurately calculated from International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes remains unclear. Our objective was to compare ISS derived from ICD-9 codes with those coded by trauma registrars. This was a retrospective study of patients entered into 9 U...

The National Cardiovascular Data Registries (NCDR) of the American College of Cardiology consists of ten national programs designed to measure quality of care for high impact cardiovascular conditions and procedures. The NCDR provides feedback with benchmarking of a broad range of quality metrics to participants; supports quality improvement interventions at the local and national level; and serves as the basis for cardiovascular health services and epidemiology research that informs contemporary clinical care...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States. National quality programs such as the National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR®) permit assessments of the quality of care and outcomes for broad populations of patients with CVD. This report provides data from 2014 from four NCDR® hospital quality programs: 1) CathPCI® for coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (667,424 procedures performed in 1,612 hospitals) ICD™ for implantable cardioverter defibrillators (158,649 procedures performed in 1,715 hospitals); 3) ACTION®-GWTG™ for acute coronary syndromes (182,903 patients admitted to 907 hospitals); and 4) IMPACT® for cardiac catheterization and intervention for pediatric and adult congenital heart disease (20,169 procedures in 76 hospitals)...

AIM: To predict arrhythmia susceptibility in myocardial infarction (MI) patients with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)  >35% using a personalized virtual heart simulation approach. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of four contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) datasets of patient hearts with MI and average LVEF of 44.0 ± 2.6% were used in this study. Because of the preserved LVEF, the patients were not indicated for implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) insertion...

OBJECTIVE: Current evidence for the association between use of lithium and risk of dementia is mixed. The objective of this study was to assess the risk of Alzheimer's disease associated with use of lithium. METHODS: A population-based, nested case-control study was conducted using data from the National Health Insurance Research Database in 2002 covering 24.5 million beneficiaries of the Taiwan National Health Insurance Program from January 1, 1997, to December 31, 2009...

BACKGROUND: Programming implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) with a high-rate therapy strategy has proven to be effective in reducing shocks, and is associated with a reduced mortality. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the impact of a very-high-rate cutoff programming strategy on outcomes in patients with a primary indication for an ICD due to reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. METHODS: Using data from the French multicenter DAI-PP registry, this cohort-controlled study compared outcomes in 500 patients programmed with a very-high-rate cutoff (VH-RATE group: monitor zone 170-219 beats per minute, VF zone ≥220 beats per minute with 13±4 detection intervals) with 1,500 matched control patients programmed with 1 or 2 therapy zone...

BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) must establish a balance between delivering appropriate shocks for ventricular tachyarrhythmias and withholding inappropriate shocks for lead-related oversensing ("noise"). To improve the specificity of ICD therapy, manufacturers have developed proprietary algorithms that detect lead noise. The SecureSense(TM) RV Lead Noise discrimination (St. Jude Medical, St. Paul, MN, USA) algorithm is designed to differentiate oversensing due to lead failure from ventricular tachyarrhythmias and withhold therapies in the presence of sustained lead-related oversensing...

BACKGROUND: There is significant variability in the perioperative management of patients with cardiac implanted electronic devices (CIEDs) undergoing procedures requiring electrosurgery. METHODS: We performed a multicenter registry from February 2014 to August 2015 at three suburban Chicago hospitals. Patients with transvenous CIEDs undergoing procedures requiring electrosurgery were assigned to one of three groups: (1) Reprogram, (2) Magnet, or (3) No Change...

AIMS: The UNTOUCHED study will assess the safety and efficacy of the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) in the most common cohort of patients receiving ICDs. The primary goal is to evaluate the inappropriate shock (IAS) free rate in primary prevention patients with a reduced ejection fraction and compare with a historical control of transvenous ICD patients with similar programming. METHODS AND RESULTS: The UNTOUCHED Study is a global, multi-center, prospective, non-randomized study of patients undergoing denovo S-ICD implantation for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death with a left ventricular ejection fraction ≤ 35%...

Optimal programming of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) is essential to appropriately treat ventricular tachyarrhythmias and to avoid unnecessary and inappropriate shocks. There have been a series of large clinical trials evaluating tailored programming of ICDs. We reviewed the clinical trials evaluating ICD therapies and detection, as well as the consensus statement on ICD programming. In so doing, we found that prolonged ICD detection times, higher rate cutoffs, and antitachycardia pacing programming decreases inappropriate and painful therapies in a primary prevention population...

BACKGROUND: Antiarrhythmic therapy is commonly used for suppression of arrhythmias in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) in conjunction with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and catheter ablation. The efficacy of combination flecainide and sotalol/metoprolol therapy for patients refractory to single agents and/or catheter ablation has not been well established. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to describe our experience with the addition of flecainide in combination with sotalol/metoprolol for treatment of arrhythmias in patients with ARVC...

INTRODUCTION: Lifestyle change programs implemented within healthcare systems could reach many Americans, but their impact on cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains unclear. The MOVE! program is the largest lifestyle change program implemented in a healthcare setting in the U.S. This study aimed to determine whether MOVE! participation was associated with reduced CVD incidence. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study, analyzed in 2013-2015, used national Veterans Health Administration databases to identify MOVE! participants and eligible non-participants for comparison (2005-2012)...
