Atrial pacing in Fontan patients: The effect of transvenous lead on clot burden.
Heart Rhythm; Assaad IE, Pastor T et. al.

Jun 29th, 2021 - Transvenous permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation is an available option for Fontan patients with sinus node dysfunction. However, the thrombogenic potential of leads within the Fontan baffle is unknown. The purpose of this study was to compare t...

Lacosamide-induced sinus node dysfunction followed by severe agranulocytosis.
BMC Neurology; Shibata M, Hoshino R et. al.

Jun 10th, 2021 - Lacosamide (LCM) is the antiepileptic drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2008 that facilitates slow activation of the voltage-gated sodium channels. Neutropenia and cardiac events including sinus node dysfunction (SND) and a...

Ablation of Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia

Apr 22nd, 2020 - Inappropriate sinus tachycardia syndrome describes a condition in which a patient's heart rate is intermittently (or persistently) higher than expected for the physiological circumstances, with ECG appearance indistinguishable from normal sinus rh...

Clinical Benefits of the Closed Loop Stimulation in Sinus Node Disease

Jan 18th, 2020 - The benefits of rate-responsiveness on top of dual-chamber pacing still need to be definitively assessed in Sinus Node Dysfunction (SND). Although many rate responsive (RR) sensors have been developed, no large clinical trials evaluated their bene...

Specialized Pacing for Patients With Congenital Heart Disease

Apr 23rd, 2019 - Sinus node dysfunction is highly prevalent among patients with congenital heart disease, manifesting as resting bradycardia or chronotropic incompetence. As children and adults with congenital heart disease are now expected to have increasing life...

AV Delay Optimization vs. Intrinsic Conduction in Pacemaker Patients With Long PR Intervals

May 1st, 2018 - Cardiac pacing is the only effective treatment for symptomatic sinus node dysfunction. Most patients with preserved left ventricular function receive dual chamber pacemakers; however, right ventricular pacing can have detrimental effects on left v...

Mode Selection Trial in Sinus Node Dysfunction (MOST)

Feb 23rd, 2016 - BACKGROUND: Permanent pacing is estimated to cost one billion dollars annually in health care costs in the United States. Initially, pacing was primarily confined to ventricular pacing with limited sensing, programming and pacing capacity. Tremend...

Some Post-TAVR Arrhythmias Likely Present Pre-TAVR but Go Undetected

Jul 20th, 2020 - In a prospective study of 106 patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for severe aortic stenosis, 48.1% were found to have preexisting arrhythmias on prolonged ECG monitoring. With 1 week of continuous monitoring, new atr...

A 67-Year-Old Man With Palpitations and Syncope

Feb 19th, 2019 - Advancing age is associated with an increase in the collagen content of the sinus node.[10] Age is also associated with an increase in the sinoatrial conduction time, another manifestation of sinus node dysfunction. Of note, patients with age-rela...

Bradycardia and Cardiac Conduction Delay: Clinical Practice Guidelines (2018)

Dec 5th, 2018 - The guidelines on the evaluation and management of bradycardia and cardiac conduction delay were released in November 2018 by the ACC, AHA, and HRS.[1,2] Sinus node dysfunction is most often related to age-dependent progressive fibrosis of the sin...

New ACC/AHA/HRS Guidance on Bradycardia, Conduction Disorders

Nov 6th, 2018 - The American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American Heart Association (AHA), and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) have released a clinical practice guideline for the evaluation and treatment of patients with bradycardia and cardiac conduction dis...

Age, Syncope Predict Need for Pacemaker

Jun 3rd, 2013 - Action Points This observational study was designed to identify the predictive factors for pacemaker implantation in a population of patients receiving an implantable loop recorder for unexplained syncope with negative cardiac and neurologic worku...
