Clinical experience with a novel subcutaneous implantable defibrillator system in a single center

Background Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) reduce mortality in both primary and secondary prevention, but are associated with substantial short- and long-term morbidity. A totally subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) system has been developed. We report the initial clinical experience of the first 31 patients implanted at our hospital. Methods All patients had an ICD indication ...

Electro-anatomical mapping of the left atrium before and after cryothermal balloon isolation of the pulmonary veins

Yves Van Belle Paul Knops Petter Janse Maximo Rivero-Ayerza Emile Jessurun Tamas Szili-Torok Luc Jordaens Introduction The 28 mm cryoballoon catheter is a device used for pulmonary vein isolation

Rationale and design of WEBCARE: A randomized, controlled, web-based behavioral intervention trial in cardioverter-defibrillator patients to reduce anxiety and device concerns and enhance quality of life

Background The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is generally well accepted, but 25-33% of patients experience clinical levels of anxiety, depression, and impaired quality of life (QoL) following implantation. Few trials in ICD patients have investigated whether behavioral intervention may mitigate the development of these adjustment problems. We present the rationale ...

Ablation lesions in Koch's triangle assessed by three-dimensional myocardial contrast echocardiography

Background Myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) allows visualization of radiofrequency (RF) ablation lesions in the left ventricle in an animal model. Aim: To test whether MCE allows visualization of RF and cryo ablation lesions in the human right atrium using three-dimensional echocardiography. Methods 18 patients underwent catheter ablation of a supraventricular tachycardia ...
