The purpose of this study was to determine if intraatrial electrograms (EGMs) are required to diagnose specific types of atrial tachyarrhythmias detected by pacemaker diagnostics. DDD pacemakers in 56 patients were programmed to store episodes of atrial tachyarrhythmias. Some episodes had a stored atrial EGM snapshot of the atrial tachyarrhythmia. The EGMs(More)
BACKGROUND Myocardial scarring resulting from cardiomyopathy with ischemic etiology may interfere with effective lead placement during implantation of multi-lead cardioverter-defibrillators for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT-D). Extensive scarring is known to be associated with poorer physiological and survival outcomes in patients who undergo(More)
