FDA Nod to Medtronic MR-Conditional CRT-Defibrillators

The U.S. FDA has cleared the first and only MR-conditional cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds) for the treatment of heart failure: Medtronic's Amplia and Compia MRI™ Quad CRT-D SureScan® systems. This approval expands Medtronic’s portfolio to include a complete line of MR-conditional cardiac devices, including MR-conditional pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), insertable cardiac monitors (ICMs) and now CRT-Ds.

Authors: Samejima Y, Iuchi A, Kanai T, Noda Y, Nasu S, Tanaka A, Morishita N, Suzuki H, Okamoto N, Harada H, Ezumi A, Ueda K, Kawahara K, Hirashima T Abstract Cardiac side effects associated with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are an uncommon but serious complication with a relatively high mortality. We experienced a case of cardiomyopathy induced by nivolumab. Echocardiography showed diffuse hypo-kinesis of the left ventricular cardiac wall and a significant decrease in the ejection fraction, like dilated cardiomyopathy. The myocardial biopsy showed non-inflammatory change; cardiac function gradually improved...

Objectives: The study sought to identify the role of Annexin A1 as a congestion marker in acute heart failure, and to identify its putative role in predicting clinical outcomes.Background: Annexin A1 (AnxA1) is a protein that inhibits inflammation following ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury in cardiorenal tissues. Since acute heart failure (AHF) is a state of tissue hypoperfusion, we hypothesized that plasma AnxA1 levels are altered in AHF.Methods: In The Renal Optimization Strategies Evaluation (ROSE) trial, patients hospitalized for AHF with kidney injury were randomized to receive dopamine, nesiritide, or placebo for 72...

Abstract Caregivers of individuals with heart failure are at high risk for diminished quality of life because of the energy involved in providing necessary care. Caring for someone with chronic heart failure can affect caregivers' physical, psychological, and social health, collectively referred to as the burden of care, and may also affect family functioning. The current cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the relationship between caregiver burden and family functioning in caregivers of older adults with heart failure in southeastern Iran using the Zarit Burden Inventory and the Family Assessment Device ba...

AbstractChronic RV pacing may lead to pacing induced cardiomyopathy in some patients and results in a higher risk of development of LV systolic dysfunction, heart failure, mitral regurgitation and atrial fibrillation. His bundle pacing emerged as the most physiologic form of ventricular pacing. However, wide adoption of this technique in routine clinical practice is limited by higher capture thresholds at implant sometimes, lower R wave amplitudes, atrial over sensing and increased risk for late rise in pacing thresholds (resulting in the need for lead revisions). Some recent studies have focused on left bundle branch area...
