Efficacy and safety of new-generation atrial antitachycardia pacing for atrial tachyarrhythmias in patients implanted with cardiac resynchronization therapy devices.

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]

In conclusion, elderly patients simultaneously presenting problems of cardiac function and arrhythmia are an important challenge for geriatric medicine, and request important efforts to improve their functional profile and prognosis. PMID: 31162487 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractBackgroundSacubitril/valsartan reduced the occurrence of sudden cardiac death in the PARADIGM-HF trial. However, limited information is available about the mechanism.MethodsHeart failure (HF)-patients receiving sacubitril/valsartan for a class-I indication equipped with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) with remote tele-monitoring were retrospectively analyzed. Device-registered arrhythmic-events were determined [ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation (VT/VF), appropriate therapy, non-sustained VT (NsVT;>  4beats and

ConclusionsThis survey showed that RM service was usually set up with a primary nursing model including on average 2 responsible physicians and 1 nurse and mainly offered to ICD/CRT patients. Technical, AF and ventricular arrhythmia alerts triggered prompt reactions, while heart failure related indexes were generally less applied.This article is protected by copyright.

Purpose of review Atrial fibrillation and heart failure are commonly encountered in current clinical practice. This review aims to revisit the complex interaction of these two common situations and the best treatment whenever both occurs, especially focusing on heart failure patients undergoing cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Recent findings It has been recently confirmed that in patients undergoing cardiac resynchronization therapy, 100% biventricular pacing percentage should be pursued. Large observational studies confirmed that atrioventricular junction ablation is very often the only way to gain 100% bive...

In conclusion, the complex clinical condition in frail patients presenting with arrhythmias warrants an integrated multidisciplinary approach both for the management of rhythm disturbances and for the decision on using CIEDs.

QT interval prolongation is an important marker for the development of cardiac arrhythmias (CA). Optimal methods to estimate QT/QTc intervals in patients with ventricular pacing (VP) and its correlation with CA have not been widely investigated. We aimed to validate the currently available formulas for QT determination during VP and to compare their abilities in predicting the occurrence of CA [atrial fibrillation (AF) and malignant ventricular arrhythmias (VA) in patients with advanced heart failure (HF) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)].

Conclusions CRT induces LA anatomic, electrical, and structural reverse remodeling that could be assessed by conventional 2D echocardiography and 2D (ɛ) strain imaging. LA dimension and volumes were independent predictors of response to CRT and can help in selection of candidates for it.
