CRAVT: a prospective, randomized study comparing transvenous cryothermal and radiofrequency ablation in atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia.
BACKGROUND Transvenous catheter ablation of atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) with radiofrequency (RF) is effective and safe, but carries a 1-3% incidence of early and potentiallyExpand

Implant and Midterm Outcomes of the Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator Registry: The EFFORTLESS Study.
BACKGROUND The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) was developed to defibrillate ventricular arrhythmias, avoiding drawbacks of transvenous leads. The global EFFORTLESS S-ICDExpand

The learning curve associated with the introduction of the subcutaneous implantable defibrillator
Abstract Aims The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) was introduced to overcome complications related to transvenous leads. Adoption of the S-ICD requires implanters to learnExpand

Magnetic navigation in AV nodal re-entrant tachycardia study: early results of ablation with one- and three-magnet catheters.
AIMS Steering soft, flexible catheters using an external magnetic field could have advantages for heart catheterization, especially for therapy of tachyarrhythmias. Our aims were to assess theExpand

Twiddler's syndrome detected by home monitoring device.
Lead fracture due to twiddler's syndrome, was detected in a 68-year-old patient 1 month after implantation of an ICD by means of the incorporated home monitoring system. The patient was admitted andExpand

Gender differences in psychological distress and quality of life in patients with an ICD 1-year postimplant.
BACKGROUND Gender differences in patient-reported outcomes in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) have been researched, but findings are inconclusive and mostly based onExpand

Incidence and predictors of phantom shocks in implantable cardioverter defibrillator recipients
BackgroundImplantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are designed to deliver shocks or antitachycardia pacing (ATP) in the event of ventricular arrhythmias. During follow-up, some ICD recipientsExpand

Psychological indices as predictors for phantom shocks in implantable cardioverter defibrillator recipients.
BACKGROUND A phantom shock-the sensation of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) discharge in the absence of an actual discharge-is a phenomenon that can occur in ICD patients. Little isExpand
