A prolonged PR interval is known to be associated with increased mortality and a higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AF). We tested the hypothesis that cardiac resynchronization therapy (CR...
Permanent His bundle pacing (p-HBP) can correct intraventricular conduction disorders and could be an alternative to traditional cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) via the coronary sinus. We desc...
Heart failure may induce atrial dyssynchrony. We aim to investigate whether preimplantation left atrial (LA) dyssynchrony could predict newly detected atrial high-rate episodes (AHRE) after receiving ...
While improvement in quality of life (QoL) has been widely reported in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) patients, its predictive value is not well-understood. We aimed to assess the predictive ...
MultiPoint Pacing (MPP) may improve clinical outcomes in patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-D), but its impact on battery longevity in a real-world population has not ...
In cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), biventricular pacing is performed by pacing the right ventricle (RV) and epicardium of the left ventricular (LV) postero-lateral wall. A signifi...
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...
The SYNSEQ study intends to assess the positive left ventricular dP/dt max achieved by multipoint LV pacing (either simultaneously or sequentially) in comparison to the response achieved b...
Our aims are to compare Direct His Bundle Pacing (DHBP) with biventricular pacing (BiV) in terms of electrical resynchronization using electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI) and also in terms...
Same patients with dilated myocardiopathies with large areas of fibrosis has not been as successful after Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, for Heart Failure patients in functional class ...
The restoration of the sequential order of contraction and relaxation of the HEART ATRIA and HEART VENTRICLES by atrio-biventricular pacing.
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.
A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
A group of cardiac arrhythmias in which the cardiac contractions are not initiated at the SINOATRIAL NODE. They include both atrial and ventricular premature beats, and are also known as extra or ectopic heartbeats. Their frequency is increased in heart diseases.
