OBJECTIVE Despite the progress that has been reached in emergency medical systems and resuscitation, sudden cardiac death (SCD) continues to be the major cause of the death, and remains a significant public health problem. In this publication we are reporting our Latin American experience in the secondary prevention of SCD, by means of an ongoing registry(More)
BACKGROUND Two types of myocardia can be observed through the endocardial spectral mapping (SM) in sinus rhythm: the compact type with a smooth spectrum and the fibrillar type with a segmented spectrum (atrial fibrillation nests). During the atrial fibrillation (AF), the compact type has an organized activation and low frequency (passive), whereas the(More)
INTRODUCTION Although rare, the atrioesophageal fistula is one of the most feared complications in radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation due to the high risk of mortality. OBJECTIVE This is a prospective controlled study, performed during regular radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, to test whether esophageal(More)
INTRODUCTION The cardiovascular system (CVS) is heavily influenced by the autonomic nervous system. Additionally, there is a functional alteration during the various stages of sleep. In nonrapid eye movement (NREM), a state of cardiovascular relaxation occurs during stages three and four. A large amount of rapid ocular movements is concentrated in rapid eye(More)
BACKGROUND The conventional right ventricle (RV) endocardial pacing leads QRS widening and desynchronization myocardial compromising ventricular function. With the need for stimulation less deleterious, RV septal pacing has been used more. Eventually have been reported higher thresholds and smaller R waves in the septal stimulation. OBJECTIVE To compare(More)
