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.

Abstract Purpose: Activity pacing is a strategy used by physiotherapists treating people with chronic pain. Questions as to the usefulness of activity pacing with people with chronic pain have been ra...
The optimal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) to select patients early post myocardial infarction (MI) for risk stratification for prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in the era of primar...
Background: The aim of this study was to determine long-term survival of DDD pacing and identify the main reasons for its loss. Methods: The study group consisted of 496 patients in whom DDD pacing sy...
Managed Ventricular Pacing compared to conventional dual-chamber pacing for elective replacement in chronically paced patients: results of the Prefer for Elective Replacement MVP (PreFER MVP) randomized study.
Several studies have shown that unnecessary right ventricular pacing has detrimental effects.
Preclinical therapies that restore survival motor neuron (SMN) protein levels can dramatically extend survival in spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) mouse models. Biomarkers are needed to effectively trans...
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.
