Summary of "Electrophysiological study with prophylactic pacing and survival in adults with myotonic dystrophy and conduction system disease."

Up to one-third of patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 die suddenly. Thus far, no intervention has effectively prevented sudden death.

Optical stimulation enables paced electrophysiological studies in embryonic hearts.

Cardiac electrophysiology plays a critical role in the development and function of the heart. Studies of early embryonic electrical activity have lacked a viable point stimulation technique to pace in...

Electrophysiological Changes Preceding the Onset of Atrial Fibrillation after Coronary Bypass Grafting Surgery.

The incidence of Post-CABG atrial fibrillation (AF) lies between 25% and 40%. It worsens morbidity and raises post-operative costs. Detection of incoming AF soon enough for prophylactic intervention w...

Pre-symptomatic electrophysiological tests predict clinical onset and survival in SOD1(G93A) ALS mice.

Introduction: We assessed the predictive value of electrophysiological tests as a marker of clinical disease onset and survival in superoxide-dismutase 1 (SOD1)(G93A) mice. Methods: We evaluated the a...

Effects of Prophylactic and Therapeutic Paracetamol Treatment during Vaccination on Hepatitis B Antibody Levels in Adults: Two Open-Label, Randomized Controlled Trials.

Worldwide, paracetamol is administered as a remedy for complaints that occur after vaccination. Recently published results indicate that paracetamol inhibits the vaccination response in infants when g...

Association between prophylactic implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and survival in patients with left ventricular ejection fraction between 30% and 35%.

Clinical trials of prophylactic implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) have included a minority of patients with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) between 30% and 35%. Because a larg...

Routine Mini-Invasive Electrophysiology Study for Patients Feeling Tachycardia, With a Negative Holter ECG

Patients complaining of tachycardia but with a negative Holter ECG, are for a limited time period offered a simplified electrophysiological(EP) examination. By a full electrophysiological ...

Multisite Pacing With a Quadripolar Lead

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of multisite left ventricular (LV) biventricular (BiV) pacing on LV hemodynamics in CRT patients. It is hypothesized that the effect of...

IDE Study for the Approval of CLS and CRT Pacing Therapies for the Treatment of AF With Ablate and Pace

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of biventricular pacing over conventional right ventricular pacing in patients with persistent or permanent, sympto...

Brain Electrophysiological Patterns in Obesity

There is growing evidence of behavioural and neurobiological overlaps between obesity and drug abuse. Reduction of the amplitude of P300, a component of event-related potentials (ERP) elic...

Biventricular Alternative Pacing

Aim of present study is to examine the short and long-term results of pacing from right ventricular apex and to compare them with those of biventricular pacing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Statistical models used in survival analysis that assert that the effect of the study factors on the hazard rate in the study population is multiplicative and does not change over time.

The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.

Moving oneself through space while confused or otherwise cognitively impaired. Patterns include akathisia, exhibiting neuroleptic-induced pacing and restlessness; exit seekers who are often newly admitted institution residents who try to open locked exit doors; self-stimulators who perform other activities such as turning doorknobs, in addition to continuous pacing; and modelers who shadow other pacers.

The psychiatric, sociological and psychological study and treatment of the developing child with emphasis on preventive or prophylactic measures focused on the familial, educational and socio-environmental milieu of the child.

The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
