Birmingham Biventricular Pacing in Patients With Heart Failure Unselected for Dyssynchrony

Patients who have heart failure and have electrical evidence of delay in the contraction of the left ventricle on an ECG tracing of the heart are eligible for biventricular pacing. Recent ...

Optimal Coronary Sinus Lead Implantation Using Intracardiac Impedography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Despite the dramatic effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) on survival and morbidity in people with congestive heart failure, 50-70% of eligible patients do not respond to this...

Attain Model 4196 Left Ventricular (LV) Lead

Heart failure is a progressive disease that decreases the pumping action of the heart. This may cause a backup of fluid in the heart and may result in heart beat changes. When there are ch...

Study of Electrical Bioimpedance in Heart Failure.

The purpose of this study is to determine how electrical impedance is modified in relation to extracellular space body fluid retention detected by an electrical bioimpedance method in pat...

Combining Myocardial Strain and Cardiac CT to Optimize Left Ventricular Lead Placement in CRT Treatment

For patients with advanced heart failure, Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) has been a major improvement. The treatment improves symptoms and prolongs life in selected patients with ...

Low frequency electrical muscle stimulation and endothelial function in advanced heart failure patients.

Obtain initial estimates of the change in brachial artery endothelial function and maximal oxygen uptake (VO ) with 8 weeks of low-frequency electrical muscle stimulation (LF-EMS) or sham in patients...

Reduced T wave alternans in heart failure responders to cardiac resynchronization therapy: Evidence of electrical remodeling.

T-wave alternans (TWA), a marker of electrical instability, can be modulated by cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The relationship between TWA and heart failure response to CRT has not been cle...

Analysis of electrical lead failures in patients referred for transvenous lead extraction procedures.

We evaluated the influences of selected factors on electrical lead failure (ELF) occurrence in patients referred for transvenous lead extraction (TLE) procedures.

Vitamin D measurement and effect on outcome in a cohort of patients with heart failure

The aims of this paper were to evaluate the levels of Vitamin D (VitD) in patients with heart failure (HF), compared to a control group, to assess the effects of VitD on HF outcome and to compare VitD...

Common Postoperative Heart Transplant Complications.

Heart failure or congestive heart failure remains a major public health concern on the global scale. End-stage heart failure is a severe disease where the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen and nut...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

Methods to induce and measure electrical activities at specific sites in the heart to diagnose and treat problems with the heart's electrical system.

Procedure which includes placement of catheter, recording of intracardiac and intravascular pressure, obtaining blood samples for chemical analysis, and cardiac output measurement, etc. Specific angiographic injection techniques are also involved.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
