Patients with severe cardiomyopathy often have chronotropic incompetence, which is predominantly managed by activating rate-adaptive pacing in patients implanted with an implantable cardioverter-defib...
To identify independent electrocardiogram (ECG) predictors of long-term clinical outcome based on standardized analysis of the surface ECG in a large multicentre cohort of patients with sarcomeric hyp...
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a devastating possible outcome of all cardiomyopathies. The risk of SCD is increased in patients with structural heart disease and continues to increase as ventricular dy...
BACKGROUND Response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is variable among patients. Extensive scar tissue burden has been characterized as a negative predictor of significant response. Whereas ...
DDD pacing improves symptoms and relieves LV outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction in most patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Notably, when pacing is temporarily discontinued, th...
The purpose of this study is to collect a saliva sample from patients with a pacemaker to study genes involved in cardiomyopathy, a condition where the heart muscle is abnormal.
Chronic right ventricular pacing has a deleterious effect on left ventricular (LV) function, namely pacing-induced cardiomyopathy (PICM). Pacing site, pacing burden, pre-implant LV dysfunc...
The main aim of this study is to assess the acute effects of a pacemaker on reducing abnormally high intracavity pressures in the hearts of patients with mid-cavity obstructive hypertrophi...
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is an inherited condition characterized by thickening (hypertrophy) of the heart muscle. Many patients who have this condition have a reduced ability to exercis...
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.
A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
An autosomal dominant inherited form of HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY. It results from any of more than 50 mutations involving genes encoding contractile proteins such as VENTRICULAR MYOSINS; cardiac TROPONIN T; ALPHA-TROPOMYOSIN.
Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
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).
