Long-term Performance of Novel Communicating Antitachycardia-Enabled Leadless Pacemaker and Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator System: a Comprehensive Preclinical Study.

Karel Tn Breeman, Bryan Swackhamer, Amy J Brisben, Anne-Floor Be Quast, Nathan Carter, Allan Shuros, Brian Soltis, Brendan E Koop, Martin C Burke, Arthur Am Wilde, Fleur Vy Tjong, Reinoud E Knops,

<h4>Background</h4>Subcutaneous ICDs (S-ICDs) and leadless pacemakers (LPs) are intended to diminish transvenous lead-related complications. However, S-ICDs do not deliver antibradycardia or antitachycardia pacing (ATP) and currently, there is no commercially available coordinated leadless option for patients with defibrillator and (expected) pacing needs.<h4>Objective</h4>We evaluated the performance, safety, and potential replacement strategies ...

Preclinical Safety and Electrical Performance of Novel Atrial Leadless Pacemaker with Dual-Helix Fixation.

Mayer Rashtian, Rajesh Banker, Petr Neuzil, Karel Breeman, Peter Nee, Nima Badie, Keith Victorine, David Ligon, Marian Rippy, Zayd Eldadah, Rahul Doshi, Daniel J Cantillon, Reinoud Knops,

<h4>Background</h4>Complications associated with transvenous pacemakers, specifically those involving the lead or subcutaneous pocket, may be avoided with leadless pacemakers (LPs). The safety and efficacy of single-chamber right ventricular (RV) LPs have been demonstrated, but their right atrium (RA) use poses new design constraints.<h4>Objectives</h4>Evaluate the implant success, electrical performance, and safety ...

Regional Heterogeneity in Determinants of Atrial Matrix Remodeling and Association with Atrial Fibrillation Vulnerability Post-Myocardial Infarction.

Mitchel R Stacy, Ben A Lin, Stephanie L Thorn, David C Lobb, Mark W Maxfield, Craig Novack, Kia N Zellars, Lisa Freeburg, Joseph G Akar, Albert J Sinusas, Francis G Spinale,

<h4>Background</h4>Left ventricular (LV) remodeling following a myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with new onset atrial fibrillation (AF). LV remodeling post-MI is characterized by regional changes in matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and tissue inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs), causing extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling.<h4>Objective</h4>This study tested the hypothesis that a shift in regional atrial ...

Electrophysiological characteristics of septal perforation during left bundle branch pacing.

Shunmuga Sundaram Ponnusamy, William Basil, Pugazhendhi Vijayaraman,

<h4>Background</h4>Left bundle branch pacing(LBBP) provides low and stable threshold by direct capture of left bundle fibers on the left ventricular sub-endocardium. As the procedure involves the deployment of the pacing lead deep inside the septum, septal-perforation is a potential complication OBJECTIVES: The aim of our study was to analyze the ...

How to Use Bipolar and Unipolar Electrograms for Selecting Successful Ablation Sites of Ventricular Premature Contractions.

Koji Higuchi, Hagai D Yavin, Jakub Sroubek, Arwa Younis, Israel Zilberman, Elad Anter,

<h4>Background</h4>Local activation time is often determined the maximal negative derivative of the extracellular unipolar potential (-dV/dT<sub>max</sub>). While this is accurate in a two-dimensional uniform tissue, propagation through nonuniform or tri-dimensional structures have shown discordance between -dV/dT<sub>max</sub> and local activation time.<h4>Objective</h4>Examine the relationship between bipolar and unipolar electrograms for selecting successful ...

Subcutaneous Versus Transvenous Implantable Defibrillator in Patients with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

Lior Jankelson, Leonid Garber, Mark Sherrid, Daniele Massera, Paul Jones, Chirag Barbhaiya, Douglas Holmes, Robert Knotts, Scott Bernstein, Michael Spinelli, David Park, Anthony Aizer, Larry Chinitz,

<h4>Background</h4>Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most prevalent inherited cardiomyopathy. Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is important for prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients at high risk. In recent years the subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) has emerged as a viable alternative to the transvenous ICD (TV-ICD). The S-ICD does not require ... Read more >>
