Estimation of the origin of ventricular outflow tract arrhythmia using synthesized right-sided chest leads.
Synthesized right-sided chest lead electrocardiography may be useful for estimating the origin of ventricular outflow tract arrhythmia. Expand
Impact of atrial high-rate episodes on the risk of future stroke.
Embolic stroke events are common in Japanese patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices and an enlarged left atrium are the risk factors of embolic stroke in this population. Expand
Identification of Left Atrial Ganglionated Plexi by Dense Epicardial Mapping as Ablation Targets for the Treatment of Concomitant Atrial Fibrillation
The purpose of this study was to identify the location of the left atrial GPs based on dense epicardial mapping during a maze procedure in patients with concomitant AF. Expand
Prospective survey of implantable defibrillator shock anxiety in Japanese patients: Results from the DEF‐Chiba study
Patient‐reported outcomes of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), such as those with shock anxiety, have emerged as important endpoints that are related to quality of life (QOL), but theyExpand
Is ganglionated plexus ablation effective for treating atrial fibrillation?
Ganglionated plexus ablation with Cox maze IV did not reduce the incidence of recurrent atrial fibrillation in comparison to Maze alone. Expand
Defibrillator shocks and their effect on objective and subjective patient outcomes: Results of the PainFree SST clinical trial.
ICD shocks have a long-lasting adverse effect on both objective, device-measured physical activity and subjective patient-reported outcomes of quality of life and shock anxiety. Expand
Usefulness of the wearable cardioverter defibrillator in patients in the early post‐myocardial infarction phase with high risk of sudden cardiac death: A single‐center European experience
The effectiveness of the wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) therapy in early post‐myocardial infarction (MI) patients remains uncertain.
New horizon for infection prevention technology and implantable device
Among the patients who require ICD removal and subsequent antibiotics secondary to infection, the wearable cardioverter defibrillator represents an alternative approach to inpatient monitoring for the prevention of sudden cardiac death. Expand
Safety and efficacy of direct oral anticoagulants over warfarin in Japanese patients with acute venous thromboembolism: A meta-analysis.
DOACs offer clinical benefit over conventional therapy in Japanese patients with acute VTE, showing a significant difference in their bleeding profile. Expand
Rapid mapping and differentiation in ventricular outflow tract arrhythmia using non-contact mapping
The isopotential area of VOTAs originating from the RVOT, as compared to the other sites, spread more elliptically and slowly, which can provide useful information and efficient strategy for VOTA ablation. Expand
