Pediatric Cardiology; Menon D, Aggarwal S et. al.

Sep 6th, 2022 - Appropriate non-invasive assessments (ECHO/ECG) of cardiac resynchronization pacing therapy (CRT) among younger patients (pts) with/without (w/wo) congenital heart disease (CHD) are not established. Ejection fraction (EF) and QRS can be unreliable...

Micra pacemaker in adult congenital heart disease patients: A case series.
https://doi.org/10.1111/jce.15664
Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology; Bassareo PP, Walsh KP

Aug 31st, 2022 - Implantation of transvenous endocardial or epicardial pacemakers presents specific challenges in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients. Micra leadless permanent pacemakers (Micra PPM) may overcome some of these difficulties. Fifteen ACHD ...
