BACKGROUND Management of antiplatelet therapy at the time of device implantation remains controversial. This study aimed to assess the risk of bleeding complications in patients receiving clopidogrel at the time of cardiac device surgery. METHODS We performed a retrospective case-control study. Between 2004 and 2010, 101 consecutive patients receiving(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about predictors of antitachycardia pacing (ATP) failure in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) recipients. Distance between the stimulation site and the ventricular tachycardia (VT) site of origin may critically affect ATP effectiveness. We hypothesized that ATP may be less effective in ICD patients who had basal VT than(More)
UNLABELLED The chronic management of post-acute aortic dissection (AD) of the descending aorta (Type B) is based on optimal control of blood pressure (BP), with a target BP < 135/80 mmHg. The aim of our study was to determine and verify effective blood pressure control with an objective measurement method and to identify predicting factors. METHODS We(More)
