Early versus late Catheter Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation and Risk of Permanent Pacema...
Journal of the American Heart Association; Umer Butt M, Okumus N et. al.

May 11th, 2022 - Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with anatomical and electrical remodeling. Some patients with AF have concomitant sick sinus syndrome (SSS) and may need permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation. Association between catheter ablatio...

Heart failure in mice induces a dysfunction of the sinus node associated with reduced C...
The Journal of General Physiology; Xue JB, Val-Blasco A et. al.

Apr 23rd, 2022 - Dysfunction of the sinoatrial node (SAN), the natural heart pacemaker, is common in heart failure (HF) patients. SAN spontaneous activity relies on various ion currents in the plasma membrane (voltage clock), but intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) relea...

Sinus Node Dysfunction With a Nice Twist.
Circulation Hochstadt A, Rosso R et. al.

Permanent pacemaker implantation after valve and arrhythmia surgery in patients with pr...
Heart Rhythm; Kowalewski M, Pasierski M et. al.

Apr 17th, 2022 - Among patients referred for cardiac surgery, atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common comorbidity and a risk factor for postoperative arrhythmias (eg, sinus node dysfunction, atrioventricular heart block), including those requiring permanent pacemaker...

Early and Late Outcomes of the Warden and Modified Warden Procedure.
The Annals of Thoracic Surgery; Griffeth EM, Dearani JA et. al.

Mar 31st, 2022 - Operative repair of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) remains challenging due to risks of sinus node dysfunction, baffle obstruction, and superior vena cava (SVC) obstruction. Seventy-five (24%) of 318 consecutive patients with...

Pectoral Nerve Blocks (PECs) for Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Device Placement

Mar 17th, 2022 - Cardiovascular implantable electrical device (CIED) is a generalized term for pacemakers, implantable cardiac devices (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices. CRT is a modality of cardiac pacing that provides simultaneous pacing...

Clinical Benefits of the Closed Loop Stimulation in Sinus Node Disease

Feb 18th, 2022 - 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...

Cardioneuroablation Versus Pacemaker Implantation for the Treatment of Symptomatic Sinus Node Dysfunction

Jan 11th, 2022 - Sinus node dysfunction (SND), also known as sick sinus syndrome, comprises a wide spectrum of sinoatrial dysfunctions, ranging from sinus bradycardia, sinoatrial block, and sinus arrest to bradycardia tachycardia syndrome. An additional manifestat...

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

Oct 1st, 2021 - 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...

Registry to Improve the Adoption of Consensus Treatment Guidelines (IMPROVE Brady)

Sep 17th, 2021 - The study is expected to provide evidence to support claim(s) that: Education and process improvement initiatives can improve the diagnosis of and appropriate therapy application for sinus node dysfunction (SND) The quality improvement methods stu...

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...

Bradycardia guideline sets new bar for shared decision-making in pacemaker placement
Andrew D. Bowser, MDedge News

Nov 6th, 2018 - A new clinical practice guideline on the management of bradycardia and cardiac conduction system disorders in adults emphasizes the importance of patient-centered care and “shared decision-making” between patient and clinician, particularly with r.

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...
