Sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains a major cause of mortality within developed nations despite aggressive efforts to reduce its societal burden. Despite extensive clinical and genetic inve...
The study's main purpose is to evaluate the safety and performance of the LeadExx LC System and its ability to safely extract leads. The study will enroll 10 patients scheduled for CIED l...
To evaluate the use of an occlusion balloon (Bridge™ Occlusion Balloon, Spectranetics) within the Superior Vena Cava in lead extraction patients.
The literature shows that approximately 40% of individuals who receive a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device for symptomatic congestive heart failure (CHF) do not have a clinica...
A single-center registry to prospectively evaluate the safety of non-cardiac/non-thoracic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with implanted cardiac devices (pacemakers and implan...
Cephalic vein cutdown (CVC) and subclavian puncture (SP) are widely used techniques for lead insertion of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). Whether one technique is superior to the other...
Phrenic nerve palsy (PNP) after mechanical transvenous lead extraction (TLE) was recently described for the first time. We aimed to analyse our TLE database for the presence of PNP.
In the last two decades, the increased number of implants of cardiac implantable electronic devices has been accompanied by an increase in complications, especially infection. Current recommendations ...
Lead dislodgement (LD) is a well-recognized complication during implantation of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED). An intra-procedural protocol, referred as reduction of lead dislodgement ...
The study of the electrical activity and characteristics of the HEART; MYOCARDIUM; and CARDIOMYOCYTES.
A state of elevated cardiac output due to conditions of either increased hemodynamic demand or reduced cardiac oxygen output. These conditions may include ANEMIA; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; THYROTOXICOSIS; PREGNANCY; EXERCISE; FEVER; and ANOXIA. In time, compensatory changes of the heart can lead to pathological form of high cardiac output and eventual HEART FAILURE.
Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.
Autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by cardiac and cutaneous MYXOMAS; LENTIGINOSIS (spotty pigmentation of the skin), and endocrinopathy and its associated endocrine tumors. The cardiac myxomas may lead to SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH and other complications in Carney complex patients. The gene coding for the PRKAR1A protein is one of the causative genetic loci (type 1). A second locus is at chromosome 2p16 (type 2).
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.
