Primary Results From the Understanding Outcomes With the S-ICD in Primary Prevention Patients With Low Ejection Fraction (UNTOUCHED) Trial.

Michael R Gold, Pier D Lambiase, Mikhael F El-Chami, Reinoud E Knops, Johan D Aasbo, Maria Grazia Bongiorni, Andrea M Russo, Jean-Claude Deharo, Martin C Burke, Jay Dinerman, Craig S Barr, Naushad Shaik, Nathan Carter, Thomas Stoltz, Kenneth M Stein, Amy J Brisben, Lucas V A Boersma, ,

<h4>Background</h4>The subcutaneous (S) implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is safe and effective for sudden cardiac death prevention. However, patients in previous S-ICD studies had fewer comorbidities, had less left ventricular dysfunction, and received more inappropriate shocks (IAS) than in typical transvenous ICD trials. The UNTOUCHED trial (Understanding Outcomes With the S-ICD in ... Read more >>

Differential effective refractory period as a useful marker of multiple accessory pathways.

Robert H Helm, Santosh C Varkey, Ankur A Karnik,

Accessory pathway (AP) ablation failure may be related to multiple pathways which go unrecognized at the time of electrophysiology study. We present a patient who had two adjacent APs based on different preexcitation patterns as well as effective refractory periods (ERPs) which have not been previously described. Apart from leading ...

Brugada Syndrome Induced by an Interscalene Block: A Case Report.

Sally A Corey, Santosh Varkey, Douglas R Phillips, Gregory L Gay,

<h4>Case</h4>A 57-year-old woman with no noteworthy medical or surgical history underwent an interscalene block with bupivacaine in preparation for an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Following administration of the bupivacaine, the patient sustained a ventricular fibrillation arrest. After successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, she was diagnosed with Brugada syndrome. An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator was ... Read more >>

Cocaine-induced coronary thrombosis: what is the optimal treatment strategy.

Arthur Rusovici, Santosh Varkey, Qaisra Saeed, Marc Klapholz, Bunyad Haider, Edo Kaluski,

Arterial thrombosis and especially coronary thrombosis are known complications of cocaine abuse. We report three cases of severe life-threatening coronary arterial thrombosis manifesting as acute coronary syndromes. Thrombosis occurred predominantly in the proximal coronary tree with spontaneous distal embolization. The thrombotic occlusions were frequently not superimposed on flow-limiting atherosclerotic lesions. ... Read more >>

Imaging of inflamed and vulnerable plaque in coronary arteries with 18F-FDG PET/CT in patients with suppression of myocardial uptake using a low-carbohydrate, high-fat preparation.

Joanna Wykrzykowska, Sanaz Lehman, Gethin Williams, J Anthony Parker, Matthew R Palmer, Santosh Varkey, Gerald Kolodny, Roger Laham,

<h4>Unlabelled</h4>PET/CT imaging with (18)F-FDG has been used to detect inflammation in carotid and aortic plaque; its use in detecting coronary plaque has been limited by avid (18)F-FDG uptake by the myocardium. We investigated whether (18)F-FDG PET/CT could be used to image inflammation in coronary arteries as a potential noninvasive method ... Read more >>
