This study aims to investigate the impact of antitachycardia pacing ( ATP) on the myocardial tissue with respect to its potential micro damage measured by several myocardial markers, especially by high-sensitive TroponinT.

The MADIT S-ICD trial is designed to evaluate if subjects with a prior myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and a relatively preserved ejection fraction of 36-50% will have a survival ...
This is a prospective observational multi-center multi-national study of the characteristics and outcomes of patients receiving implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) in the Arab Gu...
Quality of life (QOL) and psychological well-being of patients with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) are significantly influenced by the experience of shock therapies. A clos...
The purpose of the Secura clinical study is to evaluate the overall system safety and clinical performance of the Secura DR Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)
The purpose of the Consulta clinical study is to evaluate the overall system safety and clinical performance of the Consulta Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator with Cardiac Resynchroni...
Clinical guidelines recommend cardioverter defibrillator implantation for patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction. Despite this, women and minorities have been less likely to receive...
The implantable cardioverter defibrillator provides effective treatment for the prevention of sudden cardiac arrest but significant risks associated with transvenous implantation persist. The subcutan...
The question of whether transvenous or epicardial implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) system is more beneficial in children and adolescents is controversially discussed. We sought to analyse ...
Avoiding propofol in patients with Brugada syndrome has been suggested because of the theoretical risk of provoking ventricular arrhythmias, although propofol may be selected for conscious sedation du...
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.
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.
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
Regulation of the rate of contraction of the heart muscles by an artificial pacemaker.
The restoration of the sequential order of contraction and relaxation of the HEART ATRIA and HEART VENTRICLES by atrio-biventricular pacing.
