BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: A first publication of our group demonstrated that implantation of a loop recorder in 30 patients experiencing an unexplained syncope (Medtronic Reveal DX or XT) definitively determined that an arrhythmia was the cause of symptoms in 10 patients (32%). However, we lack the results of a survey evaluating the results of long term follow-up after a loop recorder implantation and the results in case of wider indications of implantation of loop recorders. METHODS AND RESULTS: A device (Medtronic Reveal DX or XT) was implanted in 97 patients between january 2009 and june 2014...

Myocarditis can lead to acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock, or sudden death and later, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) with chronic heart failure. We report the cases of two DCM induced by acute and past myocarditis in the same family and expressed by its two main complications within few weeks: an hemodynamic presentation as a fulminant myocarditis rapidly leading to cardiac tranplantation and a rythmologic presentation as an electrical storm leading to catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia. These cases ask the question of the family predisposition to viral myocarditis leading to DCM...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent supraventricular arrhythmias with an approximative prevalence of 1 % in the general population and above 6 % in the elderly. Management of a first AF episode is different depending on the clinical status of patients. Practice guidelines developed in collaboration with the European Heart Rhythm Association and the Heart Rhythm Society are available for the management of these patients. A four-step decisional scheme must be followed in the management of a first recent AF episode: need for a short- and long-term anticoagulation, define a rythmologic strategy (rhythm or rate control), select the weapon (drug, device or ablation) and reconsider the strategy if needed...

Interventional cardiology has dramatically developed since its introduction in 1977. Angioplasty represents the first choice for coronary reperfusion during acute myocardial infarction with thromboaspiration and stenting of the culprit lesion. In acute coronary syndroms and stable angina or silent ischemia despite optimal medical treatment, angioplasty is today an excellent option for coronary revascularization which includes a technologic offer adapted to various clinical and anatomical situations (specific guidewires, rotative atherectomy, distal protection devices and drug eluting stents that reduce the risk of coronary reintervention after initial angioplasty)...

Within less than a half-century, after the early rising of cardiac pacing, we witness a dramatical in crease of its indications. After the initial aim, which was to prevent transient ischaemic events, and sudden death due to bradycardia, some more physiological objectives have--progressively appeared, such as improvement of patient's quality of life, and optimization of the cardiac performance to fulfill the metabolic needs. The indications of cardiac pacing are nowadays extended to the fields of haemodynamics and rythmology...

The oesophageal route is a simple technique, which is easy to perform. It allows precise assessment of supraventricular arrhythmias without using the endocavitary route. There is a perfect correlation between the two methods for the study of sinus function and the Wenckebach point. This technique makes a considerable contribution to the diagnosis of junctional tachycardia and the evaluation of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. It can reduce approximately 65% of flutters and 50% of atrial tachyarrythmias. It can also be used to monitor antiarrhythmic treatment or in the assessment of radiofrequency resection, especially in nodal tachycardias and left atrioventricular accessory pathways...

In order to demonstrate a possible superiority of bicarbonate dialysis (HDB) over acetate dialysis (HDA) in conditions of standard dialysis (4 hours on a 1 m2 cuprophan dialyser) but with a bath rich in sodium (143 mEq/l) and control of ultrafiltration, we have compared 2 sequences of 3 runs of HDA and HDB with these conditions in 8 patients as regards their acido-basic and cardiologic parameters (continuous monitoring of ECG by Holter, regular measurement of blood pressure). Acid base balance study in AHD led to the distinction of 2 groups according to wether their plasma bicarbonate increased or decreased during the run...
