BACKGROUND Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) reduce mortality in both primary and secondary prevention, but are associated with substantial short- and long-term morbidity. A totally subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) system has been developed. We report the initial clinical experience of the first 31 patients implanted at our hospital. METHODS All(More)
AIMS Studies have shown that remote magnetic navigation is safe and effective for ablation of atrial arrhythmias, although optimal outcomes often require frequent manual manipulation of a circular mapping catheter. The Vdrive robotic system ('Vdrive') was designed for remote navigation of circular mapping catheters to enable a fully remote procedure. This(More)
Contact force (CF) is one of the major determinants for sufficient lesion formation. CF-guided procedures are associated with enhanced lesion formation and procedural success. We report our initial experience in epicardial ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation with a force-sensing catheter using a new approach with an angioplasty balloon. Two patients with(More)
Dear Editor, The most reported complications of veno-venous extracorporal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are bleeding and infections [1]. Recently, a double lumen cannula was introduced, making introduction of two separated cannulas unnecessary. This single cannula is inserted via the right internal jugular vein and positioned with the tip resting in the(More)
