ASSURE Study - Arrhythmia Single Shock DFT Versus ULV: Risk Reduction Evaluation With ICD Implantations

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


The ASSURE Study will evaluate shock conversion performance when programming the first shock of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillation (ICD) is based on an implant test consisting of either 1) a single induction of ventricular fibrillation (VF) and subsequent demonstration conversion success at 14 J or 2) an upper limit of vulnerability (ULV) test at 14 J.

Implantable-cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) detect and terminate life-threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmia with electric shocks after they occur. This puts patients at risk if they are driving or...

Integrative analyses of myocardial lipidome and proteome implicate mitochondrial dysfunction in lethal ventricular tachyarrhythmia (LVTA) induced by acute myocardial ischemia (AMI).

Lethal ventricular tachyarrhythmia (LVTA) is the most prevalent electrophysiological event leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD). In this study, the myocardial lipidome and proteome were analysed in r...

Characteristics of Recurrent Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia after Catheter Ablation in Patients with Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy.

The reason for recurrence of ventricular arrhythmia (VA) after catheter ablation in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is not clear.

Treatment with mononuclear cell populations improves post-infarction cardiac function but does not reduce arrhythmia susceptibility.

Clinical and experimental data give evidence that transplantation of stem and progenitor cells in myocardial infarction could be beneficial, although the underlying mechanism has remained elusive. Ven...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormally rapid heartbeat, usually with a HEART RATE above 100 beats per minute for adults. Tachycardia accompanied by disturbance in the cardiac depolarization (cardiac arrhythmia) is called tachyarrhythmia.
