Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
