BACKGROUND Wearable cardioverter defibrillators (WCDs) provide protection from sudden cardiac death. The efficacy of a WCD detection algorithm has not been reported outside of clinical trial. METHODS The efficacy of the algorithm was reviewed through a retrospective analysis of appropriate shocks, inappropriate shocks, and arrhythmia detections during a(More)
Noggin, an extracellular bone morphogenic protein (BMP) antagonist, blocks BMP signaling and decreases osteoblastogenesis. The purpose of this study was to identify novel sequence variations in the human noggin gene and to perform association analyses of these variations with phenotypes related to osteoporosis. Novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)(More)
In the present study, we have retrospectively analyzed the corrected QT (QTc) interval before spontaneous episodes of sudden cardiac arrest in patients with a wearable cardioverter defibrillator. Corrected QT interval was measured for all normal beats from 32 recordings of baseline rhythm and compared to normal rhythm before a paired spontaneous cardiac(More)
