ConclusionsOur study suggests that RV free wall pacing may be a significant risk factor for LV dysfunction. Pacemaker-induced LV dysfunction was improved via lead relocation to the RV apex or cardiac resynchronization therapy upgrade. Future studies with a bigger sample size and longer-term follow-up are required to confirm our results.

This study included 36 patients. At rest, AV intervals changed minimally with posture. With atrial pacing, AV interval immediately increased compared with sinus rhythm, with ARV slopes being 8.1 ±7.7, 8.8±13.4 and 6.8±6.5 milliseconds per beat per minute (ms/bpm) and ALV slopes being 8.2±7.7, 9.1±12.8, and 7.0±6.5 ms/bpm for supine, standing and sitting positions, respectively. As paced heart rate increased, ARV and ALV intervals increased more gradually with similar trends. Intervent ricular conduction times changed
ConclusionsSurvival after appropriate tachyarrhythmia therapies, particularly shocks, is attenuated in patients with GFR ≤30. This raises concern over potential lack of survival benefit conferred by CRT‐defibrillators versus CRT‐pacemakers in this population.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved
ABSTRACTBackgroundMultiPoint Pacing (MPP) may improve clinical outcomes in patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT ‐D), but its impact on battery longevity in a real‐world population has not been investigated in large trials.ObjectiveCompare projected battery longevity in CRT ‐D patients with and without MPP during long‐term follow‐up.MethodsThe Italian Registry On Multipoint Left Ventricular Pacing (IRON ‐MPP) is a prospective, multicenter registry of patients implanted with MPP‐capable CRT‐D devices. Projected battery longevity during follow‐up was compared for patients with ...
CONCLUSIONS: Reactive ATP successfully and safely reduced AF burden, and was associated with a lower incidence of HF hospitalization in patients implanted with CRT devices. PMID: 31672258 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study investigated the clinical effect of the aCRT algorithm, especially in mildly wide QRS (120≤QRS

Sridevi, Soumen Devidutta, Debabrata Bera, Calambur NarasimhanAbstractThere is a paucity of experience regarding His bundle pacing (HBP) at laboratories initially attempting the procedure, especially in the Indian scenario. Patient who underwent HBP were selected for pacing therapy or in lieu of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) at a single center. Among 22 patients attempted, 19 patients underwent successful implant, achieving selective HBP in 14 patients. ...
A 59-year-old woman with a history of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (ejection fraction of 30%) and obesity was admitted to internal medicine with palpitations. She had undergone uncomplicated cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRT-D) placement five days previously. At a skilled nursing facility, she experienced an intermittent pulsating feeling in her left chest several times per day. She described the feeling as the sensation of “somebody doing CPR from the inside.” She was referred to the emergency department for further evaluation.
