AIMS The choice of resynchronization therapy between with (CRT-D) and without (CRT-P) a defibrillator remains a contentious issue. Cause-of-death analysis among CRT-P, compared with CRT-D, patients could help evaluate the extent to which CRT-P patients would have additionally benefited from a defibrillator in a daily clinical practice. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
The patient population benefitting from cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) is increasing. This study introduces a device annotation method that supports the consistent description of the functional attributes of cardiac devices and evaluates how this method can detect device changes from a CIED registry. We designed the Cardiac Device Ontology,(More)
SUMMARY Sudden death and syncope remain frequently unexplained despite numerous investigations. Here, we report the case of a pacemaker-implanted patient who presented during video-polysomnography recording a complete atrioventricular block simultaneously with an electrical seizure. Remarkably, the patient was completely asymptomatic. He had a history of(More)
Le concept de réhabilitation précoce après chirurgie consiste à proposer aux patients tous les moyens qui permettent de contrecarrer ou de limiter les effets délétères de la chirurgie. Ce concept est adapté à une procédure chirurgicale (par exemple, chirurgie colorectale) et se décline sous la forme d'un programme ou d'un chemin clinique qui couvre les(More)
BACKGROUND To analyze the in-hospital complication rate in women suffering from non-ST elevation myocardial infarction treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) compared to men. METHODS The files of 479 consecutive patients (133 women and 346 men) suffering from a Non STEMI (Non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) between the January(More)
In a series of 12 patients, the right atrial effective and functional refractory periods (ERP and FRP) were determined at 3 different sites and at 3 different intensities (threshold intensity and double and triple the threshold intensity). The mean of the range of the ERP in the same atrium was 43.4 ms and that of the FRP was 53.5 ms. These ranges appear to(More)
