OBJECTIVES To analyze the incidence and causes of ICD therapies in children and young adults and verify their impact on the quality of life (QoL). METHODS From March/1977 to February/2006, 29 patients (15.7+/-5.4 years old) were submitted to ICD implants. Aborted cardiac arrest (41.5%), sustained ventricular tachycardia (27.6%) and primary prophylaxis of(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated congenital atrioventricular block (CAVB) is a rare condition with multiple clinical outcomes. Ventricular remodeling can occur in approximately 10% of the patients after pacemaker (PM) implantation. OBJECTIVES To assess the functional capacity of children and young adults with isolated CAVB and chronic pacing of the right ventricle(More)
BACKGROUND The ability to apply standard and interoperable solutions for implementing and managing medical registries as well as aggregate, reproduce, and access data sets from legacy formats and platforms to advanced standard formats and operating systems are crucial for both clinical healthcare and biomedical research settings. PURPOSE Our study(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an efficient treatment for patients with heart failure (HF), severe ventricular dysfunction and intraventricular block. Conventional pacemakers (CPM) implanted in the right ventricular apical area cause alterations in the normal sequence of cardiac activation similar to those induced by LBBB (left(More)
Objective: To report the surgical results obtained with the surgical correction of fistulae of coronary arteries in the pulmonary artery branch. Method: From 1995 to 1999, three female patients with diagnoses of isolated fistulae of coronary arteries confirmed by cinecoronariography underwent surgery. Results: No other associated heart diseases were(More)
BACKGROUND Although several studies have demonstrated deleterious consequences of chronic right ventricular (RV) pacing on ventricular function and synchronicity, its effects on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and functional exercise capacity remain uncertain. We aimed to evaluate the effect of RV pacing on HRQoL and functional capacity of children(More)
Background: Complications after surgical procedures in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) are an emerging problem due to an increasing number of such procedures and aging of the population, which consequently increases the frequency of comorbidities. Objective: To identify the rates of postoperative complications, mortality, and(More)
