People who have a dangerously fast heart beat, or whose heart is at risk of stopping beating, may be in need of an electronic device called an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). An ICD is implanted surgically just under the skin in the upper chest area and it sends a strong electrical impulse, or shock, to the heart to return it to a normal rhythm. If the heart is beating too slowly or at an abnormal rhythm, an ICD can also pace the heart to return the heart to its...
The purpose of this registry is to collect information on the health status of patients receiving Marquis/Maximo VR Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators (ICDs), how the devices are being programmed and how this correlates to clinical patient outcome.
Hypothesis 1 (H1): Epicardial biventricular pacing is a safe and feasible method of pacing in young patients. Over the last two years, physicians at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have been implanting epicardial BiV pacing systems in children determined to have ventricular dyssynchrony caused by numerous cardiac diagnoses. The decision to use these pacing systems was based on the knowledge gained by adult studies. Since the use of these pacing systems in the pediatric ...

The purpose of this retrospective study is to identify all neonates (newborns < 30 days of age) from January 1, 2002 through June 20, 2006 at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta who have suffered neurological complications following cardiac surgery. This retrospective study is important to identify the incidence, care and follow-up of neurological complications at this institution
The Medtronic InSync III Marquis Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillator (CRT-D)-System (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator with biventricular stimulation for cardiac resynchronization) is equipped with the "Conducted-Atrial Fibrillation (AF)-Response-Algorithm (CAFR)". This algorithm is designed to maximize biventricular stimulation and thus the amount of cardiac resynchronization when atrial fibrillation occurs. The goal of the study is the evaluation of the effec...
In this study, patient blood samples from NMA transplants will be provided by Pittsburgh, and samples from myeloablative transplants will be provided by Atlanta (comparative controls). Samples would be obtained pre- and post-BMT from the recipient at a total of 7 timepoints, and from the donor at one timepoint.
Heart failure is a very common cause of hospital admission and there are half a million new cases diagnosed each year in the United States. While some important progress has been made over the last two decades for the treatment of heart failure, there still remains a critical need for further advances in our understanding of this disease in order to significantly improve patient outcomes. Large numbers of heart failure patients need to be studied over time to allow scientists...
The goal of this proposal is to investigate whether a standard rTMS protocol for depression, including multiple sessions applied to left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) results in reduction of depressive symptoms for adult patients with ASD and MDD (Aim 1). The secondary goal is to investigate and whether there is any beneficial reduction in the core symptoms of autism (Aim 2).
In this study, the investigators wish to use images obtained from standard of care cardiac MRI's performed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and transfer the images to a different computer in order to analyze them with a new computer. The investigators are hoping to better their understanding and management of complex congenital heart disease.
Mighty Men is a 6-month faith-based weight-loss intervention for obese African American men 35-74 years old being conducted in Atlanta, GA.
The primary purpose of this observational study is to compare what drugs work best in sedating children (> 3 months to < 36 months) who need an MRI. This type of research may help clinicians (healthcare providers) learn more about how dexmedetomidine works compared to propofol. The investigators are planning to have 60 children complete the study at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. Half (30) of the patients will be randomized to receive dexmedetomidine and the...
Congenital heart disease affects 1 in 100 newborn babies each year and more than 2,000,000 Americans have a congenital heart defect. One common defect treated at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston is single ventricle heart. Due to these overwhelming numbers, the use of diagnostic imaging technology to assess these defects and heart function is an important step in the evolving care of this patient group.
This study is being done to look at the relationship between brain structure and brain function in patients with epilepsy or focal brain lesions (abnormal areas) that require surgery. This study will look at an imaging technique called magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for looking at the brain. Specifically, the study will look at functional MRI, which is an imaging technique that can map brain function by taking pictures of the brain as it performs different tasks such as rea...
Management of Hyperglycemia in the ER: A Randomized Clinical Trial of a Subcutaneous Insulin Aspart Protocol Coupled With Rapid Initiation of Basal Bolus Insulin Prior to Hospital Admission Versus Usual Care
In the Emergency Department (ED), diabetes is commonly encountered as a secondary diagnosis and many patients with uncontrolled diabetes are admitted to the hospital after initial evaluation in the ED. Currently there are no guidelines in the US for the management of hyperglycemia in patients with diabetes during the duration of evaluation and treatment in the ED. It is known that high blood glucose levels in hospitalized patients with diabetes are associated with increased ris...
