BACKGROUND: In heart failure (HF) patients, left ventricular mechanical dispersion (LVMD) reflects heterogeneous mechanical activation of the left ventricle. In HF patients, LVMD can be reduced after CRT. Whether lesser LVMD is associated with improved outcome is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To relate LVMD to long-term prognosis in a large cohort of HF patients after 6 months of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). METHODS: Clinical, echocardiographic and ventricular arrhythmia (VA) data were analyzed from an ongoing registry of HF recipients of CRT...

In the past years we have been observing the dynamic development of electrotherapy, as evidenced by the steadily rising number of implanted pacemakers (PM), as well as devices used in the treatment of dangerous arrhythmia and heart failure, such as implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT-P/D). This is a consequence of the ageing of the populations of the majority of developed countries and also the gradually widening indications for the use of such devices. Along with the observed rise in the number of new implantations, the number of complications of electrotherapy is rising as well...

We assessed the feasibility and safety of using local anaesthesia with conscious sedation as an alternative to general anaesthesia during complex and noncomplex cardiac implantable device procedures. We enrolled 279 consecutive patients who underwent cardiac device implantation/replacement at our tertiary/quaternary cardiac specialist hospital during a 17-month study period. Continuous combined intravenous conscious sedation with propofol and midazolam plus fentanyl and local anaesthesia were used for all procedures...

A 65-year-old lady and a 69-year-old gentleman, both with a background history of adult-onset asthma, presented with clinical features of heart failure (HF). High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T and eosinophils were significantly raised, along with poor left ventricular (LV) systolic function on cardiac imaging. Endocardial and skin biopsy (in cases 1 and 2, respectively) showed eosinophilic infiltration. This in combination with the clinical features confirmed the diagnosis of eosinophilic myocarditis (EM) secondary to eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis in case 1...

PURPOSE: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is an established treatment for symptomatic patients with heart failure, a prolonged QRS duration, and impaired left ventricular (LV) function; however, non-response rates remain high. Recently proposed computer-assisted interventional platforms for CRT provide new routes to improving outcomes. Interventional systems must process information in an accurate, fast and highly automated way that is easy for the interventional cardiologists to use...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is limited by a substantial proportion of non-responders. Left ventricular endocardial pacing (LVEP) may offer enhanced possibility to deliver CRT in patients with a failed attempt at implantation and to improve clinical status of CRT non-responders. METHODS: The ALternate Site Cardiac ResYNChronisation (ALSYNC) study was a prospective, multi-centre cohort study that included 118 CRT patients with a successfully implanted endocardial left ventricular (LV) lead, including 90 failed coronary sinus (CS) implants and 28 prior non-responders who had worsened or unchanged heart failure status after at least 6 months of optimal conventional CRT therapy...

OBJECTIVE: In patients indicated for cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT), the choice between a CRT-pacemaker (CRT-P) versus defibrillator (CRT-D) remains controversial and indications in this setting have not been well delineated. Apart from inappropriate therapies, which are inherent to the presence of a defibrillator, whether adding defibrillator to CRT in the primary prevention setting impacts risk of other acute and late device-related complications has not been well studied and may bear relevance for device selection...

INTRODUCTION: Although strict selection criteria are used to select patients for cardiac resynchronisation therapy, up to 30% of patients do not have a positive clinical response. PATIENTS: A total of 102 consecutive patients who had biventricular pacemaker/defibrillator (CRT-P or CRT-D) implanted were enrolled in this prospective observational study. RESULTS: During the average follow-up period of 24.3 months 5 patients died and 17 (16.7%) patients were hospitalised with the symptoms of heart failure; 75 (73...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) reduces morbidity and mortality in appropriately selected patients with heart failure and is strongly recommended for such patients by guidelines. A European Society of Cardiology (ESC) CRT survey conducted in 2008-2009 showed considerable variation in guideline adherence and large individual, national and regional differences in patient selection, implantation practice and follow-up. Accordingly, two ESC associations, the European Heart Rhythm Association and the Heart Failure Association, designed a second prospective survey to describe contemporary clinical practice regarding CRT...

Persistence of the left superior vena cava occurs in about 0.3-0.7% of the general population. It is of particular importance in patients who need cardiac resynchronisation therapy. We present a unique case in which a snare system and tunnelling tool were used to place the left ventricular lead in a patient with persistence of the left superior vena cava.

A fifth of patients with heart failure suffer from conduction disorders. A prolonged QRS duration on the electrocardiogram is an indicator of cardiac dyssynchrony. Several studies have shown the efficacy of cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) in patients with a wide QRS duration: CRT is associated with reduced morbidity and mortality. An overview of the methods of implantation of CRT devices, the results of this electrical treatment and its limits.

Abnormal cardiac motion can indicate different forms of disease, which can manifest at different spatial scales in the myocardium. Many studies have sought to characterise particular motion abnormalities associated with specific diseases, and to utilise motion information to improve diagnoses. However, the importance of spatial scale in the analysis of cardiac deformation has not been extensively investigated. We build on recent work on the analysis of myocardial strains at different spatial scales using a cardiac motion atlas to find the optimal scales for estimating different cardiac biomarkers...
