AIMS Automatic daily transmission of data from implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) enables the remote monitoring of device status and leads function. We report on a 2-year experience with remote monitoring in 40 recipients of high-voltage ICD leads, prone to fracture and under advisory since October 2007. METHODS AND RESULTS The ICDs were(More)
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) is a multiple access technique that is starting to be examined as an alternative to Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) for cellular mobile systems. Until recently, OFDMA had received little attention for multicellular applications and as a consequence of this, few results are available on the impact of(More)
AIMS The ECOST trial examined prospectively the long-term safety and effectiveness of home monitoring (HM) of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD). METHODS AND RESULTS The trial's primary objective was to randomly compare the proportions of patients experiencing ≥ 1 major adverse event (MAE), including deaths from all causes, and cardiovascular,(More)
AIMS The choice of resynchronization therapy between with (CRT-D) and without (CRT-P) a defibrillator remains a contentious issue. Cause-of-death analysis among CRT-P, compared with CRT-D, patients could help evaluate the extent to which CRT-P patients would have additionally benefited from a defibrillator in a daily clinical practice. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
AIMS The Effectiveness and Cost of ICD follow-up Schedule with Telecardiology (ECOST) trial evaluated prospectively the economic impact of long-term remote monitoring (RM) of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). METHODS AND RESULTS The analysis included 310 patients randomly assigned to RM (active group) vs. ambulatory follow-ups (control(More)
