The Effect of Cardiac Resynchronization without a Defibrillator on Morbidity and Mortal...
https://doi.org/10.1002/ejhf.2524
European Journal of Heart Failure; Cleland JGF, Bristow MR et. al.

May 2nd, 2022 - Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) reduces morbidity and mortality for patients with heart failure, reduced left ventricular ejection fraction, QRS duration >130 ms and in sinus rhythm. To identify patient-characteristics that predict the eff...

Chest computer tomography is safe without additional interrogation or monitoring for mo...

Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology; Tsutsui K, Kato R et. al.

Mar 30th, 2022 - Whether diagnostic computed tomography (CT) scans to cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) is safe in recent models remains unknown. A two-centers observational study. Over 14 years, consecutive 2362 chest CT scans (1666 pacemakers [PMs], ...

Outcomes of leadless pacemaker implantation in patients with mechanical heart valves.
https://doi.org/10.1111/jce.15462
Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology; Loughlin G, Pachón M et. al.

Mar 25th, 2022 - Device infections constitute a major complication of transvenous pacemakers. Mechanical heart valves (MHV) increase the risk of infective endocarditis (IE) and pacemaker infection, requiring lifelong vitamin K-antagonists (VKA), which may affect p...

Cardiac allograft vasculopathy and donor age affecting permanent pacemaker implantation...

ESC Heart Failure; Roest S, Manintveld OC et. al.

Feb 18th, 2022 - The need for permanent pacemakers (PMs) after heart transplantation (HT) is increasing. The aim was to determine the influence of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV), donor age, and other risk factors on PM implantations early and late after HT a...

Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology : an ... Tachibana M, Banba K et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2022 - Options for shaping the delivery sheath of leadless pacemakers (LPs) based on the cardiac anatomy of patients are limited. We predicted the shape of the LP sheath during implantation using preoperative computed tomography (CT) and intraoperative f...

Class I Recall of Boston Scientific INGENIO Family of Pacemakers
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/956192

Aug 6th, 2021 - Boston Scientific has recalled the INGENIO family of pacemakers and cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers (CRT-Ps) because the devices may incorrectly transition to safety mode. Safety mode on the devices is intended to provide backup if th...

Evidence Builds for iPhone 12 Interference With Cardiac Devices
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/952780

Jun 9th, 2021 - Further evidence that powerful magnets in some Apple iPhones can interfere with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) comes from a small study that also suggests some devices are more susceptible than others. The iPhone 12 Pro Max with Ma...

Traditional Pacemaker Complications Down With Leadless Device
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/arrhythmias/73736

Jun 27th, 2018 - Patients who got the Nanostim leadless pacemaker instead of a transvenous one had fewer complications through up to 18 months of follow-up, researchers said. Those receiving the leadless cardiac pacemaker (LCP) generally had fewer complications th...

CMS to Cover Leadless Pacemakers ... But Only in Studies
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/arrhythmias/61440

Nov 14th, 2016 - The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services aims to cover leadless pacemakers, but only in the context of use in FDA-approved studies, according to a draft of the agency's national coverage determination for the devices. The document details the ...

Women Receive Far Fewer CIEDs Than Men but Have Higher Survival Rates After Implant
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/847145

Jun 29th, 2015 - MILAN, ITALY — Women are being short-changed when it comes to receiving cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), which is especially concerning because they actually have higher survival rates than men after implantation of certain device t...
