Propofol dose and efficacy of defibrillation testing during implantation of subcutaneou...
Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology; Trolese L, Dall'Aglio PB et. al.

Nov 30th, 2022 - Defibrillation testing (DFT) is recommended during subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) implantation. Previous studies analyzing the potential interference of propofol with defibrillation threshold are inconsistent. The purp...

Automated Quantification of Abnormal QRS Peaks From High-Resolution ECGs Predicts Late ...
Journal of the American Heart Association; Suszko AM, Chakraborty P et. al.

Nov 30th, 2022 - Background Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are at risk of ventricular arrhythmia (VA) attributed to abnormal electrical activation arising from myocardial fibrosis and myocyte disarray. We sought to quantify intra-QRS peaks (QRSp) ...

Catheter Ablation for Ventricular Arrhythmias in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.
Cardiac Electrophysiology Clinics; Subramanian M, Atreya AR et. al.

Nov 18th, 2022 - Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are the mainstay of therapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death in high-risk patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Catheter ablation is a useful option for patients with recurrent, drug refract...

Experiences Implementing a Suite of Decision Aids for Implantable Cardioverter Defibril...
Circulation. Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes; Knoepke CE, Wallace BC et. al.

Nov 16th, 2022 - Shared decision making (SDM) is gaining importance in cardiology, including Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reimbursement policies requiring documented SDM for patients considering primary prevention implantable cardioverter defibri...

External cardioversion of atrial fibrillation and flutter in patients with cardiac impl...
Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE; Elgaard AF, Dinesen PT et. al.

Nov 6th, 2022 - Atrial fibrillation and flutter are often treated with external electrical cardioversion (ECV) in patients with potentially electrically sensitive cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIED). Long-term follow-up data on contemporary CIED ...

Risk Stratification of VT / VF After Myocardial Infarction Based on Cardiac MRI 2

Aug 3rd, 2022 - Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) are currently recommended (ESC guidelines 2015) for the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with a remote myocardial infarction (MI) and a low (≤35%) left ventricular ejection ...

Impact of PREVENTIVE Substrate Ablation of Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion on Implantable cardioVerTer-Defibrillator Interventions

Jul 26th, 2022 - Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) improve survival among patients with ischemic heart failure (HF) who have not previously had a sustained ventricular arrhythmia. However, ICD shocks that terminate ventricular tachycardia (VT) are ass...

A Multicenter Trial of a Shared DECision Support Intervention for Patients Offered Implantable Cardioverter-DEfibrillators

Jul 8th, 2022 - The investigators propose the DECIDE-ICD trial: a type II effectiveness implementation hybrid trial of the investigators ICD PtDAs. The Investigators will use a 6-site stepped-wedge design, with implementation guided by normalization process theor...

Stereotactic Arrhythmia Radioablation for Ventricular Tachycardia (StAR-VT)

Jun 3rd, 2022 - Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a potentially life-threatening arrhythmia characterized by electrical re-entry within patches of heterogeneous myocardial fibrosis leading to sustained consecutive ventricular beats at a rate > 100 per minute. VT is...

S-ICD French Cohort Study (HONEST)

May 12th, 2022 - Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators have been proven to be effective in the prevention of sudden cardiac death in high-risk patients. However, it is well acknowledged that such a strategy could be optimised, especially through new technologies...

Famine and CVD; Another TEER Device Approved; Medical Misinformation on YouTube?

Sep 20th, 2022 - Approximately 6 months after COVID vaccine-related myocarditis, follow-up MRI scans suggest some recovery in left ventricular ejection fraction and decline in late gadolinium enhancement. (JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging) Around the world, diet quali...

Advances in Diabetes and Heart Disease From ESC 2022
Pardeep Jhund, MD

Sep 19th, 2022 - Professor Pardeep Jhund, from the University of Glasgow, United Kingdom, discusses highlights in diabetes and heart disease presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2022. He begins with a Danish study of the causes of excess mortal.

Antibiotics Before Dentist; ICD/CRT-D Recall; More Transcatheter Firsts

Aug 23rd, 2022 - Observational data support antibiotics before invasive dental procedures for a reduction in infective endocarditis among high-risk individuals. (Journal of the American College of Cardiology) Risk of myocarditis after COVID-19 infection exceeded t...
