Implantation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) leads to a diverse spectrum of changes on the twelve-lead surface electrocardiogram (ECG). We aimed to elucidate the changes of the surface ECG in patients after LVAD implantation potentially impacting ECG based screening tests of subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (S-ICD).

Few reports have described associations between a bleeding revision and outcomes following implantation of a continuous-flow left-ventricular assist device (LVAD).
Ten months after an ineffective percutaneous coronary stent placement, a 53-year-old patient was rehospitalized with NYHA functional class IV congestive heart failure, ischemic heart disease and left ...
Unsuccessful weaning from ventilator after major cardiovascular procedures has been shown to be associated with increased post-operative morbidity and mortality. Our study aimed to identify predictors...
Although acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication following cardiac surgery, less is known about the occurrence and consequences of moderate/severe AKI following left ventricular assist devi...
Right heart failure occurs in 9-44% of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implants of which less than 10% require a right ventricular assist device (RVAD) support either concurrently with the LVAD ...

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
A transient left ventricular apical dysfunction or ballooning accompanied by electrocardiographic (ECG) T wave inversions. This abnormality is associated with high levels of CATECHOLAMINES, either administered or endogenously secreted from tumor or during extreme stress.
Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.
Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.
A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
