The Prognostic Value of J ‐wave Pattern for Recurrence of Ventricular Tachycardia after Catheter Ablation in Patients with Myocardial Infarction
AbstractBackgroundJ ‐waves and fragmented‐QRS (fQRS) on surface ECGs have been associated with the occurrence of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Whether these non‐invasive parameters can also predict ventricular tachycardia (VT) recurrence after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is unknown. Of interest, patie nts with a wide QRS‐complex have been excluded from clinical studies on J‐waves, although a J‐wave like pattern has been described for wide QRS.MethodsWe retrospectively included 168 patients (67 ±10years; 146 men) who underwent RFCA of post‐infarct VT. J‐wave pattern were defined as J‐poi...

Dual ‐chamber pacing using a hybrid transvenous and leadless pacing approach
AbstractAn elderly gentleman with a dual ‐chamber pacemaker presented to our institution with symptoms of symptomatic bradycardia and high‐grade atrioventricular (AV) block. Device interrogation revealed failure to capture in the right ventricle (RV) lead with bipolar pacing, high RV pacing threshold with unipolar pacing, and high impe dance suggesting lead fracture. The atrial lead function was normal. Given his advanced age, gait instability, and dementia, the decision was made to proceed with Micra AV pacemaker implantation, while programming his dual‐chamber pacemaker to AAIR mode, thus maintaining AV synchrony b...

Sinus rhythm heart rate increase after atrial fibrillation ablation is associated with lower risk of arrhythmia recurrence
AbstractBackgroundPulmonary vein isolation (PVI) with autonomic modulation may be more successful than PVI alone for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation and may be signaled by changes in sinus rhythm heart rate post ablation. We sought to determine if a change in sinus rhythm heart rate predicted AF recurrence post PVI.MethodsPatients who underwent AF ablation from 2000 –2011 were included if sinus rhythm was noted on ECG within 90 days pre and 7 days post ablation. Basic ECG interval and heart rate changes were analyzed and outcomes determined.Results1152 patients were identified (74.3% male, mean age 57 ±11 ye...

Optimized single ‐point left ventricular pacing leads to improved resynchronization compared with multipoint pacing
AbstractBackgroundMultipoint pacing (MPP) in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) activates the left ventricle from two locations, thereby shortening the QRS duration and enabling better resynchronization; however, compared with conventional CRT, MPP reduces battery longevity. On the other hand, electrocardiogram ‐based optimization using the fusion‐optimized intervals (FOI) method achieves more significant reverse remodeling than nominal CRT programming. Our study aimed to determine whether MPP could attain better resynchronization than single‐point pacing (SPP) optimized by FOI.MethodsThis prospective study incl...

High ‐power short‐duration ablation of atrial fibrillation: A contemporary review
AbstractCatheter ablation using radiofrequency (RF) energy has been widely used to treat patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The optimal levels of power and duration to increase the success rate while minimizing complications have not been fully established. Different centers continue to use various power protocols for catheter ablation of AF. Herein, we present a comprehensive review of the impact of power output on efficacy and safety of RF ablation for AF. High ‐power short‐duration (HPSD) ablation can be performed safely with similar procedural efficacy as low‐power long‐duration ablation strategy. HPSD abl...

Pulmonary hypertensive crisis: A potential reason for right ventricle and pacemaker lead failure
We present the case of a girl with Seckel syndrome and congenital complete heart block. She had a single chamber permanent pacemaker in the right ventricle. When she referred us with a pulmonary hypertensive crisis (PHC), it was seen that the device was not pacing even in maximum threshold and pulse width values. After new epicardial lead implantation into the left ventricular apex, capture could be established again. For the cases presenting with capture failure, after eliminating lead ‐related problems and biochemical abnormalities, PHC should be kept in mind as a reason.
