The aim of this multi-center research study is to evaluate the performance (primary purpose) and safety of a new algorithm aimed at controlling ventricular rate (VR) during rapidly conducted atrial fibrillation (AF) by delivering AV node stimulation (AVNS) from the atrial lead placed at a septal position, and designed with the purpose of reducing inappropriate shocks. Additional purposes include the assessment of a possible application of AVNS aimed at allowing prolonged control of VR during AF and reducing AF symptoms, and evaluation of implantation data on selective placement of the atrial lead in postero-septal right atrium. About 37 patients will be followed for half a year.

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...
It is still unclear if Lymph Node Yield (LNY) and Lymph Node Ratio (LNR) may have a prognostic role in patients affected by carcinoma of the head and neck. Only retrospective studies are a...
The aim of this study is intending to provide the optimal procedures of lymph node sorting for pathological examination after curative surgery for gastric cancer, which can discriminate th...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relevance of sentinel node in endometrial cancer. Sentinel node is thought to reflect the status of lymph node. Only 10 to 20% of women with...
The present study aims at investigating the feasibility, the detection rate and the negative predictive value of sentinel node in predicting the presence or absence of lymph node metastasi...
Oats, in addition to cholesterol-lowering properties, contain unique antioxidants called avenanthramides (Avns), which inhibit both inflammatory cytokines and adhesion molecules in endothelial cells i...
In addition to axillary lymph node (ALN), internal mammary lymph node (IMLN) is also the first-echelon drainage nodes reached by metastasising cancer cells from breast cancer, which can provide import...
This study aims to explore the accuracy, specificity and laws of axillary lymph node metastasis predicted by sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) by comparing axillary lymph node status via SLNB and axil...
Several controversies are still ongoing about sentinel node biopsy in melanoma. It is basically a staging procedure for melanoma > 0.75 mm in thickness or for thinner melanoma in the presence of ulcer...
A variety of different lymph node (LN) staging systems have been developed to describe the lymph node status accurately. We aim to compare the prognostic accuracy of American Joint Committee on Cancer...
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
Those procedures designed to widen the zone of attached gingiva and deepen the vestibular depth which will facilitate the clearance of the area for natural food passage, and provide access for toothbrushing and interdental stimulation.
Regularly spaced gaps in the myelin sheaths of peripheral axons. Ranvier's nodes allow saltatory conduction, that is, jumping of impulses from node to node, which is faster and more energetically favorable than continuous conduction.
