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

Excessive right ventricular apex pacing has significant adverse effects on the cardiac function and hence, it is necessary to clinically optimize pacing parameters and advocate suitable physiological...
Scapular kinematics in healthy adults is well described in the literature but little is known on typical children. This study aimed to compare the three-dimensional (3-D) scapular kinematics and scapu...
Previous studies demonstrated burst pacing and intravenous infusion of acetylcholine (ACh) induced sustained atrial tachycardia when rabbits were immunized to produce β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR)-a...
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of external pacing with periodic auditory stimuli on the control of periodic movement. [Subjects and Methods] Eighteen healthy subj...
The general clinical profile of European pacemaker recipients who require predominant ventricular pacing (VP) is scarcely known. We examined the demographic and clinical characteristics of the 1808 pa...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
