Relationships Between Sinus Rhythm, Treatment, and Survival in the Atrial Fibrillation Follow-Up Investigation of Rhythm Management (AFFIRM) Study
Background—The AFFIRM Study showed that treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation and a high risk for stroke or death with a rhythm-control strategy offered no survival advantage over aExpand

A comparison of antiarrhythmic-drug therapy with implantable defibrillators in patients resuscitated from near-fatal ventricular arrhythmias.
BACKGROUND Patients who survive life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias are at risk for recurrent arrhythmias. They can be treated with either an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator orExpand

Analysis of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Therapy in the Antiarrhythmics Versus Implantable Defibrillators (AVID) Trial
Introduction: The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is commonly used to treat patients with documented sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF). ArrhythmiaExpand

Electrocardiographic diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in the presence of left bundle branch block.
The presence of left bundle branch block (LBBB) on 12-lead ECG may obscure the diagnosis of other ECG abnormalities including left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). We retrospectively reviewed ECGs ofExpand
