We describe an transvenous implatation technique of a left ventricular stimulation lead for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) into a lateral target vein, which was impossible to reach antegradly by conventional methods due to extremly unfavourable coronary venous anatomy. The implantation...
Use of pacing in sick sinus syndrome and recent developments in pacemaker therapy for intermittent atrial fibrillation raise the question whether external electrical cardioversion should be used for termination of atrial fibrillation. This paper analyzes three cases of pacemaker and/or electrode...
The position of the pacemaker system (right or left sided, pectoral or abdominal), the lead configuration (unipolar or bipolar), the programmed sensing threshold, and the sensitivity against interference signals are decisive parameters with respect to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Three of...
Today, all pacemakers possess a variety of programming possibilities so that the idea of choosing the most effective combination of voltage and pulse duration can be realized. It is surprising how little this problem is treated in literature. It is known as long ago as 1907 that a pulse duration...
We present the case of a 24-year old female with recurrent fainting attacks. Surface ECG revealed QT prolongation. There were no arrhythmias during several months of monitoring using a wearable external defibrillator (WCD®). Eight months after implantation of an ICD, the patient experienced...
