National experience with long-term use of the wearable cardioverter defibrillator in patients with cardiomyopathy.

Madhab Lamichhane, Joseph C Gardiner, Nicole R Bianco, Steven J Szymkiewicz, Ranjan K Thakur,

<h4>Purpose</h4>The wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is generally used for short periods of sudden cardiac death (SCD) risk; circumstances may occasionally result in prolonged use (over 1 year). The aim of this study was to determine the benefits and risks of prolonged use in patients with systolic heart failure (HF).<h4>Methods</h4>ZOLL's post-market US ... Read more >>

Use of the Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator in High-Risk Populations.

Madhab Lamichhane, Abdul Safadi, Phani Surapaneni, Negar Salehi, Ranjan K Thakur,

The United States Food and Drug Administration has approved the wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) for use in patients who are at high risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and who do not yet have an established indication for an implantation cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or have contraindications for device implantation for ...

The Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator in Nonischemic Cardiomyopathy: A US National Database Analysis.

Negar Salehi, Mojdeh Nasiri, Nicole R Bianco, Madalina Opreanu, Vini Singh, Vaibhav Satija, Aravdeep S Jhand, Lilit Karapetyan, Abdul Rahman Safadi, Phani Surapaneni, Ranjan K Thakur,

<h4>Background</h4>The wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is often used in patients at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) who are not yet candidates for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Newly diagnosed cardiomyopathy may be reversible, and a WCD may protect patients during the initial period of risk. We evaluate the benefit ... Read more >>

Device-Detected Atrial Fibrillation-Perils and Pitfalls: An Update.

Phani Surapaneni, Abdul Safadi, Tahmeed Contractor, Mehul B Patel, Ranjan K Thakur,

Stroke and thromboembolism are catastrophic complications of atrial fibrillation (AF). Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) with an atrial lead can reliably detect atrial high-rate events (AHRE). However, this correlation may be imperfect because of oversensing and undersensing of atrial signals and spurious arrhythmias. The critical duration, frequency, or overall burden ... Read more >>

Containing the Cost of Heart Failure Management: A Focus on Reducing Readmissions.

Dwarakraj Soundarraj, Vini Singh, Vaibhav Satija, Ranjan K Thakur,

Heart failure (HF) consumes a large proportion of the total national health care budget. Incidence and prevalence of HF are increasing and may give rise to an unsustainable increase in health care spending. Hospitalizations account for the vast majority of HF-related expenses, and 20% to 25% of patients discharged with ... Read more >>

Wearable cardioverter-defibrillator as a bridge to cardiac transplantation: A national database analysis.

Madalina Opreanu, Chingping Wan, Vini Singh, Negar Salehi, Jaffri Ahmad, Steven J Szymkiewicz, Ranjan K Thakur,

<h4>Background</h4>Life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) and sudden cardiac death (SCD) are common in patients awaiting heart transplantation (HT), and the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is often used for primary prevention in this setting. Use of ICDs in these patients is not without risks and is sometimes contraindicated. The wearable cardioverter-defibrillator (WCD) may ... Read more >>

Neurointerventional Therapies for Stroke in Atrial Fibrillation: Illustrated Cases.

Amit B Sharma, Enoch B Lule, Anmar Razak, Syed I Hussain, Shalini Sharma, Peerawut Deeprasertkul, Ranjan K Thakur,

Approximately 800,000 strokes occur in the United States every year, resulting in 200,000 deaths. Strokes may be ischemic (80%) or hemorrhagic (20%). Strokes caused by atrial fibrillation (AF) are thromboembolic, and AF is the leading cause of ischemic stroke. Rapid distinction between these forms of strokes is critical because approaches ...

Assessment of adequate safety margin using single coupling interval-upper limit of vulnerability test.

Mehul B Patel, Khyati Pandya, Ranjan K Thakur,

<h4>Purpose</h4>Upper limit of vulnerability (ULV) testing using T-wave scanning shocks at multiple coupling intervals correlates well with defibrillation threshold (DFT), but remains underutilized in clinical practice. We measured DFT and ULV at a single coupling interval (SCI), with the aim to identify adequate safety margin at a coupling interval that ... Read more >>

Peerawut Deeprasertkul, Ranjan K Thakur,

Sinus arrest rarely occurs during acute myocardial infarction involving the right coronary artery (RCA) and sinus node (SN) artery. We report a rare case of sinus arrest caused by SN artery occlusion following RCA stenting. A 56-year-old woman with a significant history of RCA stenosis with prior bare metal stenting, ...

Implantable defibrillators improve survival in end-stage renal disease: results from a multi-center registry.

Swapnil Hiremath, Sujeeth R Punnam, Somjot S Brar, Sandeep K Goyal, Joseph C Gardiner, Ashok J Shah, Ranjan K Thakur,

<h4>Background</h4>Small retrospective analyses suggest that end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients do not obtain as much of a survival benefit from an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) as non-ESRD patients do. We aimed to assess the survival effect of an ICD in ESRD patients with left ventricular dysfunction.<h4>Methods</h4>Data from two registries identified ESRD ... Read more >>
