Percutaneous Implantation of an Entirely Intracardiac Leadless Pacemaker.
BACKGROUND Cardiac pacemakers are limited by device-related complications, notably infection and problems related to pacemaker leads. We studied a miniaturized, fully self-contained leadlessExpand

Clinical predictors of adverse patient outcomes in an experience of more than 5000 chronic endovascular pacemaker and defibrillator lead extractions.
BACKGROUND It is difficult to predict adverse patient outcomes associated with transvenous lead extraction (TLE) procedures. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to examine the safety andExpand

Right and Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Tachycardias: Evidence for a Common Electrophysiologic Mechanism
Introduction:“Idiopathic” ventricular arrhythmias most often arise from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), although arrhythmias from the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) are alsoExpand

Incidence and predictors of right ventricular pacing-induced cardiomyopathy in patients with complete atrioventricular block and preserved left ventricular systolic function.
BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) pacing may worsen left ventricular cardiomyopathy in patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and advanced atrioventricular block. OBJECTIVEExpand

Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation in Heart Failure Patients: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.
BACKGROUND Rhythm control with antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs) is not superior to rate control in patients with heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF), but AF ablation may be more successful atExpand
