Study investigating the guiding catheter Selectra 3D
The guiding catheter 'Selectra 3D' is a catheter that is intended to support the implantation of a pacemaker lead in untypical positions in the heart like in the His- bundle area.
This study is designed as post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) study to identify and evaluate residual risks associated with the use of the guiding catheter Selectra 3D that remained unrevealed even after risk analysis, risk mitigation and successful conformity assessment. Moreover, the study aims at providing additional PMCF data, as required by regulatory authorities. Furthermore, the performance and efficacy of the Selectra 3D shall be assessed. The results will be used for updating the clinical evaluation.

Aim: To compare patient satisfaction with intramuscular placement of a pacemaker pocket to subcutaneous placement. Patients will be randomized (approximately half i each group) to receive...
The purpose of this study is to assess the incidence (at 90-days) of ventricular pacing in patients undergoing permanent pacemaker placement after TAVR. As well as incidence (at 90-days) ...
Prospective, non-randomized, single-arm, international multicenter, clinical safety and effectiveness of a leadless pacemaker system in patients who are indicated for a VVIR pacemaker.
This study evaluates the signal quality of capacitive ECG (cECG) on pacemaker patients and whether paced rhythms of the pacemaker can be distinguished from the normal beats using cECG sign...
This study is prospective randomized study which was performed in multicenter (General Hospital) in Korea. Inclusion criteria is patients who developed atrial fibrillation/flutter/tachycar...
Use of a universal diagnostic catheter may decrease procedural time and catheter-exchange related spasm when compared with a dual-catheter strategy. The aim of this study was to identify preprocedural...
Minimal data exists on the Advisor™ HD Grid (HDG) catheter and the Precision™ electroanatomic mapping system (EAM) for ventricular arrhythmia (VA) procedures. Using the HDG catheter the EAM uses t...
Temporary transvenous cardiac pacing is a life-saving procedure in an emergency. Transvenous cardiac pacing catheterization guided by intracavitary electrocardiogram (IC-ECG), instead of fluoroscope, ...
We describe an unusual cause of intermittent rapid ventricular paced rhythm in a patient implanted with a dual chamber pacemaker due to sinus node dysfunction after heart transplantation. During impla...
The year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark publication on the bedside clinical use of a flow-directed catheter. The catheter, now known as the Swan-Ganz catheter, truly revolutionized pr...
A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
