Spanish Pacemaker Registry. 14th Official Report of the Spanish Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiac Pacing (2016)

Conclusions Total use of pacemaker generators in Spain has increased by 1.6% compared with 2015. Most implanted leads have active fixation and less than 20% have magnetic resonance imaging protection. Age and sex directly influenced pacing mode selection, which could be improved in around 32% of patients.

Conclusions: X-ALD should be included in the differential diagnosis of adult leukoencephalopathies with predominant involvement of infratentorial structures, that is, the cerebellum and brainstem. From a classification perspective, our patient (of white origin), like others (all of Asian origin), should be considered as suffering from a variant of adrenomyeloneuropathy rather than from spinocerebellar X-ALD. Actually, the term “spinocerebellar” or similar ones, such as “cerebello-brainstem dominant form,” should be limited to those exceptional cases, in which both the clinical and neuroimaging fin...

Gotlib, Brian KnutsonAbstractAlthough behavioral sensitivity to reward predicts the onset and course of mania in bipolar disorder, the evidence for neural abnormalities in reward processing in bipolar disorder is mixed. To probe neural responsiveness to anticipated and received rewards in the context of bipolar disorder, we scanned individuals with remitted bipolar I disorder (n=24) and well-matched controls (n=24; matched for age and gender) using Functional Magnetic Resonance...

Conclusions: Our results indicate a potential mismatch between cerebral blood supply and oxygen metabolism in BD, suggesting inefficiency in energy homeostasis in the brain. Mapping CMRO2 would provide the spatial resolution to investigate regional alterations in metabolism, particularly in the brain regions where CBF is increased.

ConclusionsSmall but detectable very low ‐voltage areas during mapping in sinus rhythm characterize the arrhythmogenic substrate of idiopathic RVOT VAs and may guide successful catheter ablation.

This study investigated whether high ‐density endocardial bipolar voltage mapping of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) during sinus rhythm may guide catheter ablation of idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias (VAs).Methods and ResultsForty ‐four patients (18 males, mean age 38.1±13.8) with idiopathic RVOT VAs and negative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging underwent a stepwise mapping approach for the identification of the site of origin (SOO). High‐density electronatomical mapping (1096.6±322.3 points) was performed during sinu s rhythm and identified at least two low bipolar voltage areas

Abstract OBJECTIVE: We prospectively validated stereo-electroencephalography (EEG) electrical stimulation mapping (ESM) of language against a reference standard of meta-analytic functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) framework (Neurosynth). METHODS: Language ESM was performed using 50 Hz, biphasic, bipolar, stimulation at 1-8 mA, with a picture naming task. Electrode contacts (ECs) were scored as ESM+ if ESM interfered with speech/language function. For each patient, presurgical MRI was transformed to a standard space and coregistered with computed tomographic (CT) scan to obtain EC locations. After...

AbstractMany cardiac catheter interventions require accurate discrimination between healthy and infarcted myocardia. The gold standard for infarct imaging is late gadolinium –enhanced MRI (LGE-MRI), but during cardiac procedures electroanatomical or electromechanical mapping (EAM or EMM, respectively) is usually employed. We aimed to improve the ability of EMM to identify myocardial infarction by combining multiple EMM parameters in a statistical model. From a porcine infarction model, 3D electromechanical maps were 3D registered to LGE-MRI. A multivariable mixed-effects logistic regression model was fitted to predic...
