Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Work consisting of a critical or explanatory note written to discuss, support, or dispute an article or other presentation previously published. It may take the form of an article, letter, editorial, etc. It appears in publications under a variety of names: comment, commentary, editorial comment, viewpoint, etc.
Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Devices
Types of artificial pacemakers with implantable leads to be placed at multiple intracardial sites. They are used to treat various cardiac conduction disturbances which interfere with the timing of contraction of the ventricles. They may or may not include defibrillating electrodes (IMPLANTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS) as well.
Retraction Of Publication
Work consisting of a statement issued by one or more authors of an article or a book, withdrawing or disavowing acknowledgment of their participation in performing research or writing the results of their study. In indexing, the retraction is sent to the editor of the publication in which the article appeared and is published under the rubric "retraction" or in the form of a letter. This publication type designates the author's statement of retraction: it should be differentiated from RETRACTED PUBLICATION which labels the retracted publication.
Corrected And Republished Article
Work that is the republication of an article to correct, amplify, or restore text and data of the originally published article.
Work consisting of written or printed communication between individuals or between persons and representatives of corporate bodies. The correspondence may be personal or professional. In medical and other scientific publications the letter is usually from one or more authors to the editor of the journal or book publishing the item being commented upon or discussed. LETTER is often accompanied by COMMENT.
Predictors of Super-Response to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy and Associated Improvement in Clinical Outcome: The MADIT-CRT (Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial With Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) Study.
The authors investigated predictors of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) super-response to cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRT-D) and whether super-response translated in...
Background- We hypothesized that combined assessment of factors that are associated with favorable reverse remodeling after cardiac resynchronization-defibrillator therapy (CRT-D) can be used to predi...
Cardiac resynchronization therapy reduces mortality and morbidity in heart failure patients with wide QRS and severe impairment of left ventricular systolic function, who are symptomatic despite optim...
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to define the extent and nature of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device usage outside consensus guidelines using national data. BACKGROUND: Recent li...
The purpose of this study is to gather information on how doctors program particular settings on cardiac resynchronization therapy implantable cardiac defibrillators (CRT-Ds), to analyze h...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that biventricular pacing (BiV) and left univentricular (left ventricular [LV] only) pacing are safe and effective for cardiac resynchronization...
Empirical implantation of the left ventricular lead is the prevailing practice in cardiac resynchronization therapy device implantation. The response rate to the therapy has been uniforml...
The Medtronic InSync III Marquis Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillator (CRT-D)-System (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator with biventricular stimulation for cardiac resynchro...
The purpose of this study was to determine if cardiac resynchronization therapy when combined with defibrillation is safe and effective in the treatment of symptomatic heart failure.
