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)
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)
