Percutaneous Implantation of an Entirely Intracardiac Leadless Pacemaker.
- V. Reddy, D. Exner, +12 authors S. Dukkipati
- The New England journal of medicine
- 16 September 2015
BACKGROUND Cardiac pacemakers are limited by device-related complications, notably infection and problems related to pacemaker leads. We studied a miniaturized, fully self-contained leadless… Expand
Cardiac implantable electronic device infections: presentation, management, and patient outcomes.
BACKGROUND Indications for cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are increasing. Although CIED infections occur infrequently, the impact of this outcome is expected to be substantial. … Expand
Improved survival among ventricular assist device recipients with a concomitant implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
- Daniel J Cantillon, K. Tarakji, Dharam J. Kumbhani, N. Smedira, R. Starling, B. Wilkoff
- Heart rhythm
- 1 April 2010
BACKGROUND Ventricular tachyarrhythmia events (VTE) are common among refractory heart failure patients requiring ventricular assist device (VAD) support. It is unknown whether implantable… Expand
Smartwatch Algorithm for Automated Detection of Atrial Fibrillation.
- Joseph M. Bumgarner, C. T. Lambert, +6 authors K. Tarakji
- Journal of the American College of Cardiology
- 29 May 2018
BACKGROUND The Kardia Band (KB) is a novel technology that enables patients to record a rhythm strip using an Apple Watch (Apple, Cupertino, California). The band is paired with an app providing… Expand
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 and… Expand
Right and Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Tachycardias: Evidence for a Common Electrophysiologic Mechanism
- S. Iwai, Daniel J Cantillon, +8 authors B. Lerman
- Journal of cardiovascular electrophysiology
- 1 October 2006
Introduction:“Idiopathic” ventricular arrhythmias most often arise from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), although arrhythmias from the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) are also… Expand
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. OBJECTIVE… Expand
Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator Use in Patients With Left Ventricular Assist Devices: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the impact of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) on mortality in patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) by conducting a systematic review… Expand
Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation in Heart Failure Patients: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.
- Shadi Al Halabi, Mohammed Qintar, +16 authors M. Chung
- JACC. Clinical electrophysiology
- 1 June 2015
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 at… Expand
Evaluation and management of premature ventricular complexes
- Daniel J Cantillon
- Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine
- 1 June 2013
Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) are a common cause of palpitations. Related symptoms include difficulty breathing, chest pain, fatigue, and dizziness. PVCs are also commonly detected… Expand
