The implantable cardioverter defibrillator is the treatment of choice for patients with ventricular tachycardia, especially in the setting of structural heart disease, but inappropriate therapy continues to be a problem. In this report we describe a short case series of patients who presented with T wave oversensing. We propose a classification in 2(More)
After atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter (AFL) is the most important and most common atrial tachyarrhythmia. Atrial flutter describes an electrocardiographic model of atrial tachycardia >or=240/min, with a uniform and regular continuous wave-form. There is classically a 2:1 conduction across the atrioventricular (AV) node; as a result, the ventricular rate(More)
INTRODUCTION Sensing and detection can be performed in true bipolar or integrated bipolar configuration by implantable defibrillators. New Medtronic generators (Medtronic Inc., Minneapolis, MN, USA) can be configured so that the sensing function of the device can be either true bipolar or integrated bipolar. We compared the sinus rhythm R-wave amplitude and(More)
BACKGROUND The strength duration curve for endocardial stimulation has been extensively studied. Little information is available on the left ventricular epicardial strength duration curve. In view of the large number of patients treated with resynchronization therapy, left ventricular epicardial stimulation parameters have practical importance. METHODS(More)
Introduction: In this report we describe our experience using non-contact mapping for radiofrequency ablation in patients with inappropriate sinus tachycardia. Methods and Results: Two female patients with persistent complaints of palpitations and documented inappropriate sinus tachycardia with failed medical management underwent radiofrequency ablation(More)
INTRODUCTION The strength duration curve has been studied for right ventricular endocardial stimulation. There are differences between left ventricular epicardial and right ventricular endocardial stimulation due to different electrophysiologic properties and different electrode-tissue interface. The strength duration curve for epicardial left ventricular(More)
We hypothesized that in patients with left ventricular dysfunction undergoing implant of a biventricular ICD, the local dominant frequency during early induced ventricular fibrillation would be higher at an epicardial left ventricular position compared to an endocardial right ventricular position. Patients undergoing implant of a biventricular ICD were(More)
