Intramyocardial electrograms for non-invasive rejection monitoring: initial experience with an infection-specific parameter.

Abstract

Non-invasive rejection monitoring based on the analysis of paced intramyocardial electrograms enables repeated or even daily graft surveillance. The rejection-sensitive parameter is calculated from the maximum slope of the descending part of the t wave. Biopsy-proven rejection grade 2 or higher (ISHLT classification) can safely be detected. Nevertheless… (More)
