Clusters of ventricular tachycardias signify impaired survival in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and implantable cardioverter defibrillators.
OBJECTIVES This retrospective study was undertaken to provide data on occurrence, significance and therapy of ventricular tachyarrhythmia (VT) clusters (VTCs) in patients with dilated cardiomyopathyExpand
Syncope in patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator: incidence, prediction and implications for driving restrictions.
OBJECTIVES This retrospective study was undertaken to provide information on occurrence, risk prediction and prevention of syncope in patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). Expand
Is there a need for routine testing of ICD defibrillation capacity? Results from more than 1000 studies.
AIMS Benefits and complications of postoperative implantable cardioverter-defibrillator tests are controversial matters. This study sought to assess the necessity of defibrillation function testsExpand
Potential benefit from implantable cardioverter-defibrillator therapy in patients with and without heart failure.
BACKGROUND Whether patients with heart failure derive a benefit from therapy with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) has been questioned. The purpose of this study was to investigateExpand
Frequency analysis of the surface electrocardiogram for recognition of acute rejection after orthotopic cardiac transplantation in man.
Recognition of acute rejection after heart transplantation has been based mainly on invasive methods until now. In this study we analyzed two well-defined surface electrocardiographic recordings byExpand
[Inadequate therapies with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators--incidence, etiology, predictive factors and preventive strategies].
Patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) often suffer inappropriate ICD-therapies. The incidence, causes and risk factors of ICD-therapies for a rhythm other than ventricularExpand
[Acute thoracic aortic dissection with occlusion of the left coronary artery].
Aortic dissection is the most common fatal condition that involves the aorta. Occasionally, symptoms mimic acute myocardial infarction leading to thrombolytic treatment. Accurate diagnosis inExpand
[Detection of acute graft rejection with Fourier transformation of the surface ECG in long-term follow-up of heart transplantation].
Up to now, diagnosis of acute rejection after heart transplantation (HTx) has been based on endomyocardial biopsy (EMB), but there is the need for reliable noninvasive parameters. Spectral analysisExpand
