The incidence of sudden cardiac death, predominantly caused by ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, is high in patients with congestive heart failure. Implantable cardiac defibrillato...
Significant differences have been described between women and men regarding presentation, mechanism, and treatment outcome of certain arrhythmias. Previous studies of ventricular tachycardia (VT) abla...
A 55 year old male presented with recurrent implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) shocks due to polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PMVT). He had undergone prior catheter ablation for VT three...
Nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT), defined as ≥3 consecutive ventricular beats at ≥120 beats/min lasting
When performing epicardial ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT) caution must be taken not to damage the coronary arteries. We report a case in which a new, non-fluoroscopic technique for incorpora...
This is a prospective, non-randomized study to determine the feasibility of using a new technique called Dynamic Substrate Mapping (DSM) to help guide the treatment of ischemic ventricular...
The BERLIN VT study is designed to evaluate the impact of prophylactic ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation on all-cause mortality and unplanned hospital admission for congestive heart fa...
The objective of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the CyberHeart System in patients with refractory ventricular tachycardia (VT). The ablation will be...
To demonstrate that scar-based ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation using the FlexAbility™ ablation catheter system results in a superior clinical outcome compared to routine drug thera...
The primary objective is to provide additional corroborative safety and efficacy data for the Navistar ThermoCool catheter for the treatment of subjects with ischemic Ventricular Tachycard...
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
A malignant form of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia that is characterized by HEART RATE between 200 and 250 beats per minute, and QRS complexes with changing amplitude and twisting of the points. The term also describes the syndrome of tachycardia with prolonged ventricular repolarization, long QT intervals exceeding 500 milliseconds or BRADYCARDIA. Torsades de pointes may be self-limited or may progress to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.
Cardiac electrical stimulators that apply brief high-voltage electroshocks to the HEART. These stimulators are used to restore normal rhythm and contractile function in hearts of patients who are experiencing VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION or ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) that is not accompanied by a palpable PULSE. Some defibrillators may also be used to correct certain noncritical dysrhythmias (called synchronized defibrillation or CARDIOVERSION), using relatively low-level discharges synchronized to the patient's ECG waveform. (UMDNS, 2003)
A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an extremely rapid, hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (150-300 beats/min) with a large oscillating sine-wave appearance. If untreated, ventricular flutter typically progresses to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.
