This study evaluates the effect of external diaphragmatic pacemaker on the patients with chronic cor pulmonale. Half of participants will receive external diaphragmatic pacemaker, while the other half will receive routine therapy.
Investigate the effect of external diaphragmatic pacemaker on chronic cor pulmonale, the indicators include: respiratory muscle force, diaphragmatic degree of excursion and thickness, pulmonary artery pressure, respiratory distress, feeling of fatigue and quality of life, pulmonary function,NT-proBNP,PaO2 and PaCO2.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Aim: To compare patient satisfaction with intramuscular placement of a pacemaker pocket to subcutaneous placement. Patients will be randomized (approximately half i each group) to receive...
The benefits of regular physical activity are well-established. Furthermore, our group has previously shown that in a population of patients with implanted pacemakers, those who exercise m...
Randomised crossover study comparing the sensitivity and specificity of 5 External loop recorders in detecting pacemaker detected Atrial fibrillation burden.
Acute respiratory failure (ARF) is characterised by a discrepancy between load imposed on respiratory muscles and their capacity. Recently, diaphragmatic ultrasonography has been introduce...
Extubation is a crucial step when patients are being weaned from mechanical ventilator support. Indeed, the patient has to face an increasing burden imposed to the ventilation system. The ...
Pacemakers are currently identified as a contraindication for the use of magnetic growth rods (MGRs). This arises from concern that magnetic fields generated by the MGR external remote controller (ERC...
Trans-diaphragmatic intercostal hernia is a rare entity. Patient with multiple medical comorbidities, including obstructive sleep apnoea, presents with shortness of breath, leg oedema and a bulging sw...
Traumatic diaphragmatic rupture remains a diagnostic challenge for both radiologists and surgeons. In recent years, multidetector CT has markedly improved the diagnosis of diaphragmatic injury in poly...
Diaphragmatic myoclonus is a rare disorder of repetitive diaphragmatic contractions, acknowledged to be a spectrum that includes psychogenic features. Electromyography has been the diagnostic tool mos...
Traumatic diaphragmatic hernias (TDHs) are sometimes difficult to identify at an early stage and can consequently result in diagnostic delays with life-threatening outcomes. It is the aim of this case...
A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).
The type of DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA caused by TRAUMA or injury, usually to the ABDOMEN.
A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.
A bone fixation technique using an external fixator (FIXATORS, EXTERNAL) for lengthening limbs, correcting pseudarthroses and other deformities, and assisting the healing of otherwise hopeless traumatic or pathological fractures and infections, such as chronic osteomyelitis. The method was devised by the Russian orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov (1921-1992). (From Bull Hosp Jt Dis 1992 Summer;52(1):1)
The outer part of the hearing system of the body. It includes the shell-like EAR AURICLE which collects sound, and the EXTERNAL EAR CANAL, the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE, and the EXTERNAL EAR CARTILAGES.
