Atrioventricular Block: Impaired impulse conduction from HEART ATRIA to HEART VENTRICLES. AV block can mean delayed or completely blocked impulse conduction.Heart Block: Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.Pacemaker, Artificial: A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).Bradycardia: Cardiac arrhythmias that are characterized by excessively slow HEART RATE, usually below 50 beats per minute in human adults. They can be classified broadly into SINOATRIAL NODE dysfunction and ATRIOVENTRICULAR BLOCK.Electrocardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.Bundle of His: Small band of specialized CARDIAC MUSCLE fibers that originates in the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE and extends into the membranous part of the interventricular septum. The bundle of His, consisting of the left and the right bundle branches, conducts the electrical impulses to the HEART VENTRICLES in generation of MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION.Cardiac Pacing, Artificial: Regulation of the rate of contraction of the heart muscles by an artificial pacemaker.Atrioventricular Node: A small nodular mass of specialized muscle fibers located in the interatrial septum near the opening of the coronary sinus. It gives rise to the atrioventricular bundle of the conduction system of the heart.Heart Conduction System: An impulse-conducting system composed of modified cardiac muscle, having the power of spontaneous rhythmicity and conduction more highly developed than the rest of the heart.Bundle-Branch Block: A form of heart block in which the electrical stimulation of HEART VENTRICLES is interrupted at either one of the branches of BUNDLE OF HIS thus preventing the simultaneous depolarization of the two ventricles.Magnetocardiography: The measurement of magnetic fields generated by electric currents from the heart. The measurement of these fields provides information which is complementary to that provided by ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY.Sick Sinus Syndrome: A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.Torsades de Pointes: A malignant form of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia that is characterized by HEART RATE between 200 and 250 beats per minute, and QRS complexes with changing amplitude and twisting of the points. The term also describes the syndrome of tachycardia with prolonged ventricular repolarization, long QT intervals exceeding 500 milliseconds or BRADYCARDIA. Torsades de pointes may be self-limited or may progress to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.Adams-Stokes Syndrome: A condition of fainting spells caused by heart block, often an atrioventricular block, that leads to BRADYCARDIA and drop in CARDIAC OUTPUT. When the cardiac output becomes too low, the patient faints (SYNCOPE). In some cases, the syncope attacks are transient and in others cases repetitive and persistent.Rhododendron: A plant genus of the family ERICACEAE.Syncope: A transient loss of consciousness and postural tone caused by diminished blood flow to the brain (i.e., BRAIN ISCHEMIA). Presyncope refers to the sensation of lightheadedness and loss of strength that precedes a syncopal event or accompanies an incomplete syncope. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp367-9)Tachycardia, Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry: Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.Disopyramide: A class I anti-arrhythmic agent (one that interferes directly with the depolarization of the cardiac membrane and thus serves as a membrane-stabilizing agent) with a depressant action on the heart similar to that of guanidine. It also possesses some anticholinergic and local anesthetic properties.Arrhythmias, Cardiac: Any disturbances of the normal rhythmic beating of the heart or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. Cardiac arrhythmias can be classified by the abnormalities in HEART RATE, disorders of electrical impulse generation, or impulse conduction.Catheter Ablation: Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.Fetal Diseases: Pathophysiological conditions of the FETUS in the UTERUS. Some fetal diseases may be treated with FETAL THERAPIES.Hydrops Fetalis: Abnormal accumulation of serous fluid in two or more fetal compartments, such as SKIN; PLEURA; PERICARDIUM; PLACENTA; PERITONEUM; AMNIOTIC FLUID. General fetal EDEMA may be of non-immunologic origin, or of immunologic origin as in the case of ERYTHROBLASTOSIS FETALIS.Electrophysiologic Techniques, Cardiac: Methods to induce and measure electrical activities at specific sites in the heart to diagnose and treat problems with the heart's electrical system.Anti-Arrhythmia Agents: Agents used for the treatment or prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. They may affect the polarization-repolarization phase of the action potential, its excitability or refractoriness, or impulse conduction or membrane responsiveness within cardiac fibers. Anti-arrhythmia agents are often classed into four main groups according to their mechanism of action: sodium channel blockade, beta-adrenergic blockade, repolarization prolongation, or calcium channel blockade.Electrocardiography, Ambulatory: Method in which prolonged electrocardiographic recordings are made on a portable tape recorder (Holter-type system) or solid-state device ("real-time" system), while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It is useful in the diagnosis and management of intermittent cardiac arrhythmias and transient myocardial ischemia.Nerium: A plant genus of the family APOCYNACEAE. It is a very poisonous plant that contains cardioactive agents.Fetal Therapies: Prenatal interventions to correct fetal anomalies or treat FETAL DISEASES in utero. Fetal therapies include several major areas, such as open surgery; FETOSCOPY; pharmacological therapy; INTRAUTERINE TRANSFUSION; STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION; and GENETIC THERAPY.Cardiomyopathy, Restrictive: A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.Arrhythmia, Sinus: Irregular HEART RATE caused by abnormal function of the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by a greater than 10% change between the maximum and the minimum sinus cycle length or 120 milliseconds.Heart Rate: The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.Inferior Wall Myocardial Infarction: MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.Vectorcardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the heart on a plane of the body surface delineated as a vector function of time.Long QT Syndrome: A condition that is characterized by episodes of fainting (SYNCOPE) and varying degree of ventricular arrhythmia as indicated by the prolonged QT interval. The inherited forms are caused by mutation of genes encoding cardiac ion channel proteins. The two major forms are ROMANO-WARD SYNDROME and JERVELL-LANGE NIELSEN SYNDROME.Heart Rate, Fetal: The heart rate of the FETUS. The normal range at term is between 120 and 160 beats per minute.Tachycardia, Supraventricular: A generic expression for any tachycardia that originates above the BUNDLE OF HIS.Myocarditis: Inflammatory processes of the muscular walls of the heart (MYOCARDIUM) which result in injury to the cardiac muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Manifestations range from subclinical to sudden death (DEATH, SUDDEN). Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies.Nerve Block: Interruption of NEURAL CONDUCTION in peripheral nerves or nerve trunks by the injection of a local anesthetic agent (e.g., LIDOCAINE; PHENOL; BOTULINUM TOXINS) to manage or treat pain.Sinoatrial Block: Disturbance in the atrial activation that is caused by transient failure of impulse conduction from the SINOATRIAL NODE to the HEART ATRIA. It is characterized by a delayed in heartbeat and pauses between P waves in an ELECTROCARDIOGRAM.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Electrocoagulation: Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.Dogs: The domestic dog, Canis familiaris, comprising about 400 breeds, of the carnivore family CANIDAE. They are worldwide in distribution and live in association with people. (Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, p1065)Heart Septal Defects, Ventricular: Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two lower chambers of the heart. Classification of ventricular septal defects is based on location of the communication, such as perimembranous, inlet, outlet (infundibular), central muscular, marginal muscular, or apical muscular defect.Endocardial Fibroelastosis: A condition characterized by the thickening of ENDOCARDIUM due to proliferation of fibrous and elastic tissue, usually in the left ventricle leading to impaired cardiac function (CARDIOMYOPATHY, RESTRICTIVE). It is most commonly seen in young children and rarely in adults. It is often associated with congenital heart anomalies (HEART DEFECTS CONGENITAL;) INFECTION; or gene mutation. Defects in the tafazzin protein, encoded by TAZ gene, result in a form of autosomal dominant familial endocardial fibroelastosis.Honey: A sweet viscous liquid food, produced in the honey sacs of various bees from nectar collected from flowers. The nectar is ripened into honey by inversion of its sucrose sugar into fructose and glucose. It is somewhat acidic and has mild antiseptic properties, being sometimes used in the treatment of burns and lacerations.Atrial Fibrillation: Abnormal cardiac rhythm that is characterized by rapid, uncoordinated firing of electrical impulses in the upper chambers of the heart (HEART ATRIA). In such case, blood cannot be effectively pumped into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES). It is caused by abnormal impulse generation.Septal Occluder Device: A CATHETER-delivered implant used for closing abnormal holes in the cardiovascular system, especially HEART SEPTAL DEFECTS; or passageways intentionally made during cardiovascular surgical procedures.Echocardiography: Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.Prenatal Diagnosis: Determination of the nature of a pathological condition or disease in the postimplantation EMBRYO; FETUS; or pregnant female before birth.Follow-Up Studies: Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.Antibodies, Antinuclear: Autoantibodies directed against various nuclear antigens including DNA, RNA, histones, acidic nuclear proteins, or complexes of these molecular elements. Antinuclear antibodies are found in systemic autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren's syndrome, scleroderma, polymyositis, and mixed connective tissue disease.Cardiomyopathy, Hypertrophic: A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).Atrial Flutter: Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).Cardiac Catheterization: Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.Heart Ventricles: The lower right and left chambers of the heart. The right ventricle pumps venous BLOOD into the LUNGS and the left ventricle pumps oxygenated blood into the systemic arterial circulation.Purkinje Fibers: Modified cardiac muscle fibers composing the terminal portion of the heart conduction system.Sinoatrial Node: The small mass of modified cardiac muscle fibers located at the junction of the superior vena cava (VENA CAVA, SUPERIOR) and right atrium. Contraction impulses probably start in this node, spread over the atrium (HEART ATRIUM) and are then transmitted by the atrioventricular bundle (BUNDLE OF HIS) to the ventricle (HEART VENTRICLE).Heart Atria: The chambers of the heart, to which the BLOOD returns from the circulation.Tachycardia, Ventricular: An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).Heart Septum: This structure includes the thin muscular atrial septum between the two HEART ATRIA, and the thick muscular ventricular septum between the two HEART VENTRICLES.Tachycardia: Abnormally rapid heartbeat, usually with a HEART RATE above 100 beats per minute for adults. Tachycardia accompanied by disturbance in the cardiac depolarization (cardiac arrhythmia) is called tachyarrhythmia.Cardiomyopathies: A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).Sotalol: An adrenergic beta-antagonist that is used in the treatment of life-threatening arrhythmias.NAV1.5 Voltage-Gated Sodium Channel: A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.Radionuclide Ventriculography: Imaging of a ventricle of the heart after the injection of a radioactive contrast medium. The technique is less invasive than cardiac catheterization and is used to assess ventricular function.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome: A form of ventricular pre-excitation characterized by a short PR interval and a long QRS interval with a delta wave. In this syndrome, atrial impulses are abnormally conducted to the HEART VENTRICLES via an ACCESSORY CONDUCTING PATHWAY that is located between the wall of the right or left atria and the ventricles, also known as a BUNDLE OF KENT. The inherited form can be caused by mutation of PRKAG2 gene encoding a gamma-2 regulatory subunit of AMP-activated protein kinase.Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.Cardiomyopathy, Dilated: A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease that is characterized by ventricular dilation, VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION, and HEART FAILURE. Risk factors include SMOKING; ALCOHOL DRINKING; HYPERTENSION; INFECTION; PREGNANCY; and mutations in the LMNA gene encoding LAMIN TYPE A, a NUCLEAR LAMINA protein.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Heart Defects, Congenital: Developmental abnormalities involving structures of the heart. These defects are present at birth but may be discovered later in life.Heart Valve Prosthesis Implantation: Surgical insertion of synthetic material to repair injured or diseased heart valves.Sarcoidosis: An idiopathic systemic inflammatory granulomatous disorder comprised of epithelioid and multinucleated giant cells with little necrosis. It usually invades the lungs with fibrosis and may also involve lymph nodes, skin, liver, spleen, eyes, phalangeal bones, and parotid glands.Death, Sudden: The abrupt cessation of all vital bodily functions, manifested by the permanent loss of total cerebral, respiratory, and cardiovascular functions.Prospective Studies: Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.Adenosine: A nucleoside that is composed of ADENINE and D-RIBOSE. Adenosine or adenosine derivatives play many important biological roles in addition to being components of DNA and RNA. Adenosine itself is a neurotransmitter.Tilt-Table Test: A standard and widely accepted diagnostic test used to identify patients who have a vasodepressive and/or cardioinhibitory response as a cause of syncope.

Fetal ECG: a novel predictor of atrioventricular block in anti-Ro positive pregnancies. (1/265)

OBJECTIVE: Approximately 2.8% of pregnancies are Ro/La antibody positive. 3-15% of fetuses develop complete heart block (CHB). First-degree atrioventricular heart block (1 degrees AVB) is reported in a third of Ro/La fetuses but as most have a normal postnatal ECG this may reflect inadequacies of Doppler measurement techniques. METHODS: Comparison was made between mechanical (mPR) and electrical (ePR) intervals obtained prospectively using Doppler and non-invasive fetal ECG (fECG) in 52 consecutive Ro/La pregnancies in 46 women carrying 54 fetuses in an observational study at a fetal medicine unit. 121 mPR and 37 ePR intervals were recorded in 49 Ro/La fetuses. Five were referred with CHB and excluded. ePR was measured successfully in 35/37 (94%) and mPR was measured in all cases. 1 degrees AVB was defined as PR >95% CI. Logistic regression predicted abnormal final fetal rhythm from first mPR or ePR. RESULTS: The ePR model gave 66.7% sensitivity (6 of 8 final abnormal fetal rhythm cases were predicted correctly in fetuses >20 weeks) and 96.2% specificity. mPR gave 44.4% sensitivity (4 of 9 cases) and 88.5% specificity. Z scores for ePR (zPR) were calculated from 199 normal fetuses. The area under the receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve was 0.88 (95% CI, 0.754 to 1.007). A cut-off of 1.65 gave a sensitivity of 87.5% and specificity of 95% for those with prolonged and normal ePR intervals, respectively. CONCLUSION: zPR is better than mPR at differentiating between normal and prolonged PR intervals, suggesting that fECG is the diagnostic tool of choice to investigate the natural history and therapy of conduction abnormalities in Ro/La pregnancies.  (+info)

Tachycardia after pacemaker implantation in a patient with complete atrioventricular block. (2/265)

The atrioventricular (AV) node allows ante- and retrograde conduction between atria and ventricles. It is commonly assumed that these AV nodal conduction properties go hand in hand. However, ante- and retrograde AV conduction can be completely independent from each other in individual patients. We report about a patient with permanent AV block III degrees requiring implantation of a pacemaker. As soon as a dual-chamber device was connected to the implanted leads, a tachycardia started at the maximum tracking rate, which was subsequently reprogrammed from 120 to 170 bpm. Non-invasive electrophysiologic testing showed that this patient demonstrated 1:1 ventriculoatrial (VA) conduction up to 170 bpm leading to endless loop tachycardia (ELT) while the antegrade AV block III degrees persisted. This case impressively illustrates that one has to take into account that patients with antegrade AV block III degrees may still have a high VA conduction capacity leading to ELT. Dual-chamber devices therefore have to be programmed accordingly, activating dedicated reactions after ventricular premature beats and automatic ELT detection and termination algorithms.  (+info)

Randomized comparison of bipolar vs unipolar plus bipolar recordings during atrioventricular junction ablation: importance and efficacy of unipolar recording. (3/265)

BACKGROUND: No prior studies have clarified the utility and efficacy of unipolar recording for identifying successful sites for atrioventricular junction (AVJ) ablation. METHODS AND RESULTS: Thirty-six patients underwent radiofrequency (RF) AVJ ablation for drug-resistant atrial fibrillation (AF) or AF/flutter. AVJ ablation was performed with either bipolar (Bi-group; n=18) or unipolar plus bipolar recording (Uni-group; n=18). In the Uni-group, the primary parameter used to select ablation sites was a QS or rS morphology of the His bundle unipolar recording. There was no significant difference between the 2 groups for the bipolar electrogram characteristics at the successful ablation site. However, in the Uni-group, the procedure time and fluoroscopy duration were shorter (both p<0.05), and the total number of RF energy applications less (p<0.05) than in the Bi-group. In the Uni-group, unipolar His bundle recordings could be assessed in 26 (76%) of 34 RF energy applications: Complete atrioventricular block was obtained at 15 (83%) of 18 sites with QS morphology and in 3 (37%) of 8 sites with rS morphology on the unipolar His bundle recording. CONCLUSIONS: AVJ ablation can be achieved more efficiently and with fewer RF energy applications when guided by unipolar recordings than by bipolar recordings alone.  (+info)

Safety of and tolerance to adenosine infusion for myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography in a Japanese population. (4/265)

BACKGROUND: Adenosine has been available for use in myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in Japan since 2005. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety of and tolerance to thallium-201 myocardial perfusion SPECT with intravenous adenosine infusion in Japanese patients with suspected coronary artery disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Two hundred and six consecutive patients who underwent an adenosine infusion (120 mug . kg(-1) . min(-1)) SPECT at Sumitomo Besshi Hospital (Niihama, Japan) were investigated. The effects of adenosine infusion were monitored for each patient. A coronary angiography was performed in 81 patients. Adenosine infusion significantly decreased blood pressure and increased heart rate. Adverse reactions were observed in 161 patients (78.2%). Most reactions were transient, disappearing soon after the termination of adenosine infusion. No serious adverse reactions, such as acute myocardial infarction or death, occurred. Adenosine infusion was terminated in 3 patients (1.5%) because of near syncope or sustained 2:1 atrioventricular block. Electrocardiographic changes occurred in 15 patients (7.3%). Self-assessed scoring after SPECT showed that the patients were very tolerant (74.6% of 177 patients) of adenosine infusion myocardial SPECT. The sensitivity and specificity were 75.0% and 69.7%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Adenosine infusion myocardial SPECT is safe and well tolerated in the Japanese population, despite the frequent occurrence of minor adverse reactions.  (+info)

Sinus node function in children with congenital complete atrioventricular block. (5/265)

AIMS: Children with congenital complete atrioventricular block (CCAVB) often need pacemaker therapy. In these children, it may be preferable to use single-lead VDD pacing, but for VDD pacing a normal sinus node function is required. Our aim was to study sinus node function in children with CCAVB. METHODS AND RESULTS: We longitudinally evaluated sinus rate in 36 children with CCAVB and normal anatomy of the heart. The rate of sinus rhythm on a 12-lead ECG, in Holter recordings, and exercise tests were evaluated at regular intervals. Age at the first visit of the children was 2.5+/-3.3 years (mean+/-SD). Follow-up was 10.6+/-7.3 years. The rate of sinus rhythm on a 12-lead ECG was at every age within the normal values for age (e.g. 0-1 year: 153+/-24 bpm, and 17-18 years: 76+/-4 bpm). Lowest and highest sinus rates in the Holter recordings were normal. During exercise, mean sinus rate in the total group of children increased from 92+/-8 at rest to 171+/-9 bpm at maximal exercise. CONCLUSION: We conclude that sinus node function is normal in children with CCAVB. Because of the normal increase in sinus rate during exercise, a single-lead VDD pacemaker can be safely implanted in these children.  (+info)

Acute and chronic effects of cardiac resynchronization in patients developing heart failure with long-term pacemaker therapy for acquired complete atrioventricular block. (6/265)

AIMS: We assessed the effects of cardiac re-synchronization therapy (CRT) in patients who developed otherwise unexplained heart failure (HF) during right ventricular apical (RVA)-pacing for acquired complete atrioventricular block (CAVB). METHODS AND RESULTS: Eighteen consecutive CAVB patients with HF during RVA-pacing were assessed with haemodynamic studies immediately and 12 months after CRT-upgrade. Ten patients had idiopathic CAVB and 13 showed normal left ventricular (LV) function at RVA-pacemaker implantation. HF developed after 81 +/- 10 months. RVA-pacing duration correlated (r = 0.49, P < 0.05) with LV ejection fraction (LVEF) deterioration. Biventricular- (BiV) and LV-pacing acutely improved the systolic function comparably, but only BiV improved diastolic function. One-year post-CRT-initiation, New York Heart Association classification improved 35 +/- 3% (P < 0.05) and the number of hospitalizations decreased 85 +/- 3% (P < 0.0001). CRT decreased LV end-diastolic diameter (LVEDd) 7 +/- 2% (P < 0.01) and increased LVEF by 23 +/- 7% (P < 0.01). The CRT-induced reduction in LVEDd tended to be greater in patients with RVA-pacing for < 5 years vs. > 5 years (7.7 +/- 2.5 vs. 3.6 +/- 1.0 mm, P = 0.08). CONCLUSION: CRT-upgrade improves the cardiac function and symptoms in CAVB patients with HF progression related to RVA-pacing. Because adverse LV-remodelling may be partly irreversible, consideration should be given to BiV- and LV-pacing upgrade as soon as possible after the indications appear, and prospective studies of the optimal timing of CRT-upgrade may be useful.  (+info)

Transient atrioventricular block shortly after uneventful cryoablation of atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardias: report of two cases. (7/265)

We report two patients with atrioventricular (AV) nodal re-entrant tachycardias who developed transient AV block immediately after uneventful cryoablation of the slow pathway was completed. No tachycardia recurrences were observed after an asymptomatic follow-up of 12 months and 10 months, respectively. This is the first report of this unexpected, transient phenomenon. The exact mechanism(s) remain(s) unclear.  (+info)

A randomized trial comparing two different approaches of pacemaker selection. (8/265)

AIMS: DDD-pacemakers are favoured in patients with sick-sinus-syndrome or AV-block. However, AAI-pacemakers for sick-sinus-syndrome or VDD-pacemakers for AV-block may provide similar benefit with lower costs. The aim is to show that a tailored approach (TA) with arrhythmia-specific pacemaker selection was equal to a standard approach (SA) regarding quality of life (QoL) at lower costs. METHODS AND RESULTS: The study was prospective and randomized with QoL as primary endpoint. Secondary endpoints were a combined endpoint of all-cause mortality, worsening heart failure or angina, atrial fibrillation (AF), stroke, these endpoints individually and costs. Of 198 patients (age 77 +/- 10 years, 43% female, ejection fraction 54 +/- 12%, follow-up 38 +/- 15 months), 94 were randomized to SA and 104 to TA. Thirty-two patients (34%) died in the SA group vs. 25 (24%) in the TA (P= ns). QoL showed no differences in all dimensions. The combined secondary endpoint was reached more frequently with SA (51%) compared to TA (37%, P = 0.045). There was no difference regarding all single secondary endpoints. Hardware costs were reduced by 15% (P < 0.0001). CONCLUSION: In long-term follow-up, a TA is equal to SA regarding the primary endpoint QoL and secondary endpoints as AF and mortality. Depending on the healthcare system, it may significantly reduce costs.  (+info)

New conduction defects develop in as many as one-third of patients undergoing surgical replacement of the aortic valve, with LBBB being the most common abnormality (18-20). After TAVI, new conduction defects have been described in an even significantly higher number of patients, with new LBBB being the predominant new conduction defect (7-11,21-24). The anatomic neighborhood of the aortic valve to the atrioventricular bundle; degeneration of the conduction system; trauma by guidewires, catheters, and pre-implantation balloon valvuloplasty; and direct constant pressure of the implanted valve on the left bundle branch at the base of the interleaflet triangle between the right and noncoronary triangle are the potential causes (25). The frequency of new LBBB has been reported to be higher after implantation of the CoreValve prosthesis as compared with the Edwards SAPIEN prosthesis (24). This has been explained by the larger size of the CoreValve prosthesis and, in particular, the greater depth of ...

The article by Coumbe et al1 in this journal is most welcome. It throws more light on a vexed difference between North American and European pacemaker practice, where the two regions guidelines for pacemaker implantation differ profoundly.2-4 Mobitz type 1 atrioventricular block (AVB) in North America is classified as a Class 3 indication in the most recent guidelines for permanent pacing2 unless the block is demonstrated on electrophysiological study to be below the his bundle. In practice, however, electrophysiological assessments are rarely performed. Furthermore, a very recent focused update of the North American guidelines does not change the above recommendation.3 By contrast, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines4 published closely related in time to the full North American version2 recommends pacing as a Class 2A indication.. The discrepancy between current North American and European recommendations is based, first, on the correct observation of the benign nature of ...

Patients with DR-AVB were similar to those with AV block occurring in the absence of drugs in terms of clinical characteristics (age, gender, and symptoms during AV block). Patients with DR-AVB more commonly had hypertension (probably reflecting the original indication for these medications) and less commonly had organic heart disease (Table 2). Moreover, both patient groups had similar electrocardiographic characteristics, including the degree of AV block as well as the sinus rate, the ventricular escape rate, and QRS width during AV block. Only a minority of patients in both groups had electrocardiographic pattern suggesting AV block at the level of the AV node (16% vs. 8% for patients with and without medications, p = NS), whereas most patients in both groups had infranodal block (Table 2).. Upon hospitalization with AV block, the culprit medication was discontinued in 79 (86%) of the 92 patients with DR-AVB. Drug discontinuation was followed by spontaneous resolution of AV block within 48 h ...

Valine is needed for muscle metabolism, repair and growth of tissue maintaining the nitrogen balance in the body. Studies show this branch chain amino acid may be useful in restoring muscle mass in people with liver disease, injuries or who have undergone surgery.Isoleucine helps promote muscle recovery after exercise and assist in blood sugar levels and energy levels. It is also involved in blood clot formation. The end products in the digestion (hydrolyzation) of protein are tri-peptides, di-peptides, and free form amino acids. Free form amino acids and high-degree hydrolysates with a good supply of the eight essentials are excellent choices to fill this need. There are many suppliers of amino acid supplements that cut costs by producing products that are very little more than egg, milk, whey, or soy protein compressed into a pill and sold as an amino acid product. A quality amino acid product will either be a complete free form product or a free form/hydrolysate mix that identifies a quality ...

A case of permanent junctional reciprocating tachycardia in a 36-year-old woman successfully treated with closed-chest interruption of the His bundle is reported. Tachycardia had lasted for 14 years and showed a retrograde P wave (P) and RP longer than PR interval. The tachycardia used an anomalous pathway with a long conduction time in the retrograde direction. The atrial end of the anomalous pathway was located near the coronary sinus orifice. His ablation was accomplished by delivering a direct-current shock from a cardioversion unit to the nodal-His zone by means of a conventional electrode catheter percutaneously introduced via the femoral vein. Two shocks were necessary to obtain the desired results. After the procedure, complete atrioventricular block below the His bundle was induced, while antegrade conduction was assured through the anomalous pathway that showed decremental properties. During 7 months of follow-up, stable sinus rhythm with a long PR interval has been observed; the ...

Aim: To investigate the interacting effects of age and sex on electrocardiographic (ECG) features of Scn5a +/- mice modelling Brugada syndrome. Methods: Recordings were performed on anaesthetized wild-type (WT) and Scn5a +/- mice and differences attributable to these risk factors statistically stratified. Results: Scn5a +/- exerted sex-dependent effects upon sino-atrial function that only became apparent with age. RR intervals were greater in old male than in old female Scn5a +/- . Atrio-ventricular (AV) conduction was slower in young female mice, whether WT and Scn5a +/- , than the corresponding young male WT and Scn5a +/- . However, PR intervals lengthened with age in male but not in female Scn5a +/- giving the greatest PR intervals in old male Scn5a +/- compared with either old male WT or young male Scn5a +/- mice. In contrast, PR intervals were similar in old female Scn5a +/- and in old female WT. QTc was prolonged in Scn5a +/- compared with WT, and female Scn5a +/- compared with female WT. Age
A pacing system for providing optimal hemodynamic cardiac function for parameters such as contractility (peak left ventricle pressure change during systole or LV+dp/dt), or stroke volume (aortic pulse pressure) using system for calculating atrio-ventricular delays for optimal timing of a ventricular pacing pulse. The system providing an option for near optimal pacing of multiple hemodynamic parameters. The system deriving the proper timing using electrical or mechanical events having a predictable relationship with an optimal ventricular pacing timing signal.
Introduction: Long-term right ventricular apical (RVA) pacing has been shown to cause adverse left ventricular (LV) remodeling and clinical outcomes. We investigated the predictors of LV remodeling after long-term RV pacing.. Methods: One hundred and two patients (54M, mean age 73.5±13.0, 50 RV septal and 52 RVA pacing) undergoing pacemaker implantation for atrio-ventricular block from January 2003 to June 2008 were studied. LV remodeling was assessed by echocardiography performed at least 18 months after implantation. Clinical outcomes including all-cause mortality, heart failure, ischaemic stroke and atrial fibrillation were analyzed. Electrical dyssynchrony (Edys) was measured by QRS duration during pacing. Mechanical dyssynchrony (Mdys) was measured by standard deviation of time to peak systolic velocities of 12 LV segments from echocardiography during pacing.. Results: There was no difference in all clinical outcomes between RV septal and RVA pacing groups (Mean follow-up ...
Definisi Hambatan Atrioventrikuler (Atrioventricular block) adalah kelainan pada sistem koduksi jantung dimana depolarisasi atrium gagal untuk mencapai ventrikel atau depoilarisasi atrial yang terkonduksikan dengan terlambat. Hambatan Atrioventrikuler (Blok AV) kerap menjadi penyebab bradikardia meskipun lebih jarang dibandingkan dengan kelainan fungsi nodus SA yang juga menyebabkan gejala bradikardia. 2.2. Klasifikasi Berdasarkan derajat hambatan, gangguan ini dibagi menjadi blok AV derajat 1, blok AV derajat 2, dan blok AV derajat 3 ( total ). Blok AV Derajat 1 terjadi bila semua impuls dari atrium dapat dihantarkan ke ventrikel dengan waktu hantaran yang lebih lama ( pada EKG interval PR, 0,20 detik ). Kelainannya biasanya pada tingkat nodus AV dan jarang pada sistem His-Purkinje. Karena semua impuls dari atrium dapat dihantarkan ke ventrikel maka biasanya tidak menimbulkan gejala. Blok AV Derajat 2 terjadi pada keadaan dimana tidak semua impuls dari atrium dapat dihantarkan melalui nodus AV ...

We described a patient with familial non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and complete atrioventricular block. A 27-year-old male was admitted to our institution with syncope. Electrocardiography demonstrated complete atrioventricular block. Two-dimensional echocardiography revealed non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A temporary transvenous ventricular pacemaker was inserted urgently, and subsequently replaced by a permanent dual-chamber pacemaker. Meanwhile, non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was diagnosed in the mother, the aunt and one of the brothers of the patient in the screening of the family, but atrioventricular conduction block was not detected in them. In the electrophysiological study of the mother, inducible ventricular tachycardia was detected. The reason for diversity of the arrhythmias in the members of the same family with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may be explained by penetrance. The phenotype of the familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is influenced ...

This study was conducted to investigate the prognostic value of heart block among patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) treated with drug-eluting stents. A total of 13,862 patients with AMI, registered in the nation-wide AMI database from January 2005 to June 2013, were analyzed. Second- (Mobitz type I or II) and third-degree atrioventricular block were considered as heart block in this study. Thirty-day major adverse cardiac events (MACE) including all causes of death, recurrent myocardial infarction, and revascularization were evaluated. Percutaneous coronary intervention with implantation of drug-eluting stent was performed in 89.8% of the patients. Heart block occurred in 378 patients (2.7%). Thirty-day MACE occurred in 1,144 patients (8.2%). Patients with heart block showed worse clinical parameters at initial admission, and the presence of heart block was associated with 30-day MACE in univariate analyses. However, the prognostic impact of heart block was not significant after ...
This is an example of a normal finding on intracardiac electrophysiologic (EP) study. The surface electrocardiogram (ECG) is represented in different colors, with its corresponding intervals (ie, PR, QT) on top. A catheter with several electrodes is placed inside the heart, close to the superior vena cava-right atrial junction. This catheter records the sinoatrial node (SN) activity and is depicted here as the high-right atrial (HRA) deflection. Beneath the HRA intracardiac electrogram is the His-bundle intracardiac electrogram, which is recorded by the electrodes of a second catheter placed across the posterior aspect of the tricuspid valve. The His-bundle electrogram provides the most information about atrioventricular (AV) conduction. Three main deflections are present, with 2 intervals: (1) the A deflection corresponds to the activation of the low-right atrium, (2) the H deflection corresponds to the activation of the His-bundle before its branching into the Purkinje system, and (3) the V ...
PowerLyra additionally proposes a new hybrid graph cut algorithm that embraces the best of both worlds in edge-cut and vertex-cut, which adopts edge-cut for low-degree vertices and vertex-cut for high-degree vertices. Theoretical analysis shows that the expected replication factor of random hybrid-cut is always better than both random vertex-cut and edge-cut. For skewed power-law graph, empirical validation shows that random hybrid-cut also decreases the replication factor of current default heuristic vertex-cut (Grid) from 5.76X to 3.59X and from 18.54X to 6.76X for constant 2.2 and 1.8 of synthetic graph respectively. We also develop a new distributed greedy heuristic hybrid-cut algorithm, namely Ginger, inspired by Fennel (a greedy streaming edge-cut algorithm for a single machine). Compared to Gird vertex-cut, Ginger can reduce the replication factor by up to 2.92X (from 2.03X) and 3.11X (from 1.26X) for synthetic and real-world graphs accordingly. ...

Paroxysmal atrioventricular (AY) block was induced by exercise in an otherwise healthy young man. The only abnormalities demonstrated at comprehensive cardiac evaluation were: 1) angiographic systolic narrowing of the left anterior descending coronary artery, and 2) reversible radionuclide hypoperfusion of the septum during exercise. It is postulated that ischemia of the conduction system due to systolic milking of the left anterior descending coronary artery was responsible for the paroxysmal AY block in this patient. ...
The Patient This ECG was obtained from a 28-year-old woman who was found in her home, unresponsive. She was hypotensive at 99/35. No one was available to provide information about past medical history or the onset of this event.. Before you read my comments, pause to look at the ECG and see what YOU think. We would welcome comments below from all our members!. The ECG This ECG is quite challenging, as it illustrates the helpfulness of ECG changes in patient diagnosis, and also points out how important clinical correlation is when the ECG suggests multiple different problems. Forgive me in advance, but there is a lot to say about this ECG.. The heart rate is 148 bpm, and the rhythm is regular, although not perfectly. P waves are not seen, even though the ECG machine gives a P wave axis and PR interval measurement. The rate is fast enough to bury the P waves in the preceding T waves, especially if there is first-degree AV block. Differential dx: sinus tachycardia, PSVT, atrial flutter. The very ...

Figure 6: Inferoseptal thinning (left panel) and LGE (right panel) of the left ventricular myocardium (arrows). Perspective:. LGE is correlated with inducible ventricular tachycardia and sudden death in many myocardial diseases, such as ischemic, hypertrophic, dilated, or arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy as well as in chronic Chagas heart disease (Mavrogeni 2013). The presence and the extent of LGE is also associated with recurrent tachyarrhythmia and even sudden cardiac arrest (Neilan 2015). New onset left bundle branch block has been described in patients with myocarditis (Mavrogeni 2014).. We report a case of acute lymphocytic myocarditis with a pattern of LGE correlating with conduction disturbances such as total AV Block, and with ventricular arrhythmia. This case illustrates the occurrence of right bundle branch block, left anterior hemi-block, and even transient complete atrioventricular block in myocardial inflammation and its visibility by CMR.. This case proves that CMR ...
Myocarditis has an estimated incidence of 10 in 100 000 and is the most common acquired cause of cardiac failure requiring heart transplant in children.[1,2] Viruses form the main aetiological basis, with Coxsackie B virus being responsible for the majority of viral myocarditis cases.[2] The clinical presentation of myocarditis varies from mild fever, flu-like symptoms and malaise to complete cardiovascular collapse, being acute fulminant myocarditis (AFM).[3] AFM is characterised by sudden onset of severe and extensive haemodynamic compromise.[4] Complete atrioventricular heart block (CAVB) is a rare complication of myocarditis and contributes to further haemodynamic compromise.[5] Although more dramatic in its presentation, if it is managed aggressively with mechanical circulatory support, affected patients may have full recovery and less risk of developing dilated cardiomyopathy.[4] In a limited-resource setting where mechanical cardiac support is not available, immediate recognition, ...

Heart block, or atrioventricular (AV) block, is either complete or incomplete. The term third-degree AV block, or complete heart block, is applied when there is no relationship between the atrial and ventricular beats and the atrial rate is faster than the ventricular. Incomplete AV block is divided into first-degree, second-degree, and advanced AV block. By definition, first-degree AV block occurs when the PR interval is 0.20 seconds and each atrial beat is followed by a ventricular complex. Second-degree AV block results in intermittent failure of atrial impulses to be conducted to the ventricles and is divided into two basic types: Type I or Wenckebach (also called Mobitz I) shows progressive lengthening of the PR interval from beat to beat until an atrial complex is blocked. Because of these periodic pauses, âœgrouped beatingâ occurs and, when present, aids in the diagnosis of Mobitz I block. It may be seen transiently in acute inferior wall myocardial infarction. Type II AV block ...

Twelve hours later, she experienced a second episode of syncope and the ECG revealed atrioventricular block with pauses ,3seconds; she underwent placement of a temporary pacemaker (TP) after cannulation of right subclavian vein and insertion of a lead that appeared to pace right ventricle. An X-ray showed the TP lead following the outer curvature of the heart to the apex (Figure A). An intracardiac ECG recorded complexes compatible with right ventricular epicardial pacing (Figure B). Intracardiac ECG is a recording of the patients electrical activity that uses TP leads (proximal V1 and distal V2). Thus, the patients own rhythm must be conserved and he or she must not be completely dependent on the pacemaker. Negative QRS deflection indicates an endocardial site; positive-negative ...

That is what is happening in this tracing as diagrammed in Figure 2. R3 is conducted from P4. The next P-wave (P5) is blocked because this patient cannot conduct at that R-P interval. The next P-wave (P6) was going to be conducted. How do I know that? This patients AV junction can conduct at 1.4 s as demonstrated by R3. R3-P6 interval is certainly longer than that assuring that P6 would have conducted to the ventricles if it werent for the junctional escape beat (R4); thus, the diagnosis of 2:1 AV block is securely established. This repeats again and again. If, later, a P-wave occurs with a conductible R-P interval which is shorter than AV junctional escape interval (1.6 s in this patient), that P-wave would conduct to the ventricles as P4 did. These junctional escape beats occur close to sinus P-waves during each others refractory period and AV dissociation (not necessarily AV block) results with those beats. ...

Things have changed through the years. Clinical skills in this area have deteriorated, in part because AVB complicating AMI is much less common in todays reperfusion era than it once was. The question of what to do with AVB after AMI seldom comes up anymore. Before the reperfusion era it was routine. The guiding principle back then was that, at least in acute anterior MI, when the block was subjunctional, that is true type II block, permanent pacing was indicated no matter how transient the block. (Caveat: the atypical situation of block arising in the common bundle of His is a nuanced topic, beyond the scope of this post ...

The PC Guide , Procedure Guide , Physical Installation Procedures ]. System Case Preparation Procedure. This procedure covers preparing the system case for the installation of a new system. You will want to perform this procedure when you are assembling a new PC, performing a major upgrade such as a full system upgrade, or moving a system to a new case. The focus of this procedure is on preparing a new system case, but the steps generally apply to an older case being reused as well. There will just be less assembly in the event of an older case (but you will need to clean the inside of the case most likely).. This procedure is geared more towards tower cases, since that is all that I use. Tower cases are superior to desktop cases for those doing their own PC assembly.. Procedure Overview: ...

Transient complete heart block - What is complete heart block? Heart block. Third-degree atrioventricular block or complete heart block, is a disorder of the cardiac conduction system where there is no conduction through the atrioventricular node. Therefore, complete dissociation of the atrial and ventricular activity exists. It results from various pathologic states causing infiltration, fibrosis, or loss of connection in portions of the healthy conduction system.
Figure 6: Inferoseptal thinning (left panel) of the left ventricular myocardium and LGE (right panel) in the inferior, inferoseptal, and anteroseptal segments (arrows). Perspective:. LGE is correlated with inducible ventricular tachycardia and sudden death in many myocardial diseases, such as ischemic, hypertrophic, dilated, or arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy as well as in chronic Chagas heart disease [2]. The presence and the extent of LGE is also associated with recurrent tachyarrhythmia and even sudden cardiac arrest [3]. New onset left bundle branch block has been described in patients with myocarditis [4].. We report a case of acute lymphocytic myocarditis with a pattern of LGE correlating with conduction disturbances such as total AV Block, and with ventricular arrhythmia. This case illustrates the ability of CMR to demonstrate the acute changes occurring during myocarditis and by using LGE to show the substrate of electrophysiological disturbances caused by myocardial ...
There are a lot of ways to do a facelift. The facelift is a very elaborate cosmetic enhancement procedure that needs a high-degree of artistry and an established amount of surgical expertise. Your facelift will almost definitely be performed on an outpatient basis, be sure you have somebody to drive you home. A liquid facelift can be done in as quickly as thirty minutes or take over 2 hours based on the number and kinds of injectables necessary to accomplish your anti-aging targets. There are several options available, but it is one of the most common. A typical facelift is most suitable for folks who are trying to get a more dramatic rejuvenation of the face or any time their principal objective is to reduce and tighten redundant neck skin. More people are opting to have a truly non-surgical facelift, since there are fewer risks involved.. A facelift is a well-known cosmetic surgery meant to reverse signs of facial aging. Though a mini facelift cannot stop the aging process, it may take years ...

COSTA, Roberto et al. Permanent cardiac pacing in children with postoperative bradycardia: long-term follow-up. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2005, vol.20, n.4, pp.392-397. ISSN 0102-7638. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-76382005000400007.. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term outcomes of children submitted to permanent cardiac pacing due to postoperative bradycardia and to identify risk factors for mortality. METHODS: From 1980 to 2004, 120 children were submitted to permanent pacemaker (PM) implantation. Interval between the defect correction and PM implantation was 1.2 ± 2.8 years, on average (median = 21 days). Atrioventricular blocks were present in 94.2% of patients. Transvenous leads (78.3%) and ventricular pacemaker systems (79.2%) were used in most of the cases. Risk factors were studied using the Cox proportional model. The Kaplan-Meier method and the Log-Rank test were used to analyze survival. RESULTS: After a mean of 5.7 ± 5.9 years (maximum = 22.5 years) of follow-up, 97 ...
The condition is most prevalent in males under 40 years of age and a team of researchers led by Queens University cardiologist Adrian Baranchuk has now advanced a revolutionary approach that could lead to a different method to treat these patients.. Lyme carditis specifically attacks the electrical system of the heart, leading to a rapid progression to atrioventricular block (AV) which is a complete shutting down of the heart activity. Typically the condition is treated with the installation of a permanent pacemaker but Dr. Baranchuks research indicates this isnt always necessary. In all five of his test cases, the patients heart returned to normal after the use of antibiotics, and only some of them, have required a temporary pacemaker for few days.. "Lyme disease is transmitted by infected ticks, primarily black-legged ticks, and Kingston is in the middle of one of the endemic regions in Canada," says Dr. Baranchuk. "The disease become reportable in 2009 and since then, case numbers have ...

Seventy four patients completed the three stages of cognitive assessment; 43 were male, mean age was 76 years (range 55-88 years), 36 patients were paced for sinus node disease, 38 patients for atrioventricular block, 41 patients were paced in DDD(R) or AAI(R) modes, and the remaining 33 patients in VVI(R). There were no significant differences in the demographic characteristics, co-morbidities (17% of VVI(R) v 27% of atrial paced had had atrial fibrillation and 34% of VVI(R) v 30% of atrial based were hypertensive), or use of medications between the groups in different pacing modes. Over the study period patients in the VVI(R) group had 59% ± 40% paced ventricular beats compared with 62% ± 30% in the atrial based group, p = 0.8.. CAMCOG scores at two years were predominantly dictated by the score at one month. Pacing mode had no significant effect on total CAMCOG scores although there was a trend towards a detrimental effect of VVI(R) pacing on the visual memory score (uncorrected p = 0.02, ...
Adams-Stokes Syndrome: A condition of fainting spells caused by heart block, often an atrioventricular block, that leads to BRADYCARDIA and drop in CARDIAC OUTPUT. When the cardiac output becomes too low, the patient faints (SYNCOPE). In some cases, the syncope attacks are transient and in others cases repetitive and persistent.
In view of the differences of opinion about the condition of the adult valves, it is interesting to note here the presence or absence of muscle in the later stages of their development now being considered. There is, in some sections of the lateral cusps at diflerent ages, a small amount of Ventricular muscle just arching over their attached borders to reach the uppermost portion of the cusp on its ventricular aspect. This seems to occur quite capriciously. In my 85 mm. foetus it is present in both lateral cusps, in my 210 mm. specimen it is absent in both, but it does occur in the anterior cusp of the tricuspid valve, while at full term it is present in the right lateral cusp but is absent in the left one. With regard to the presence of auricular muscle in the cusps, again in this series of foetal hearts its appearance is quite irregular. I have found it just overlapping the base of the cusp, according to the definition of the latter I have enunciated already, in the following instances: at 85 ...

Kereiakes said the lack of clinical guidelines and standardization of monitoring for AV block is what led them to work directly with their electrophysiology colleagues. And while interventionalists at his institution are now typically following EP advice and using temporary pacemakers, they will occasionally opt to override it, Kereiakes said, in certain, low-risk patients. In a patient with no conduction defects, narrow QRS intervals before and after the procedure, and no complications during the procedure, Kereiakes said they remove the temporary pacing wire no later than the next day. In such low-risk patients, however, Schloss said he is in agreement with Kereiakes. "Were all for removing the temporary pacers the next morning in the appropriately selected patients," he told TCTMD.. As part of the proposed protocol, the EPs recommend all patients with a QRS , 120 ms before or after the procedure, as well any patients with transient or persistent AV block, keep the temporary pacer in place at ...

A fatal case of Lyme carditis occurring in a Suffolk farmworker is reported. Post-mortem examination of the heart showed pericarditis, focal myocarditis and prominent endocardial and interstitial fibrosis. The additional finding of endodermal heterotopia (mesothelioma) of the atrioventricular node raises the possibility that this could also be related to Lyme infection and account for the relatively frequent occurrence of atrioventricular block in this condition. Lyme disease should always be considered in a case of atrioventricular block, particularly in a young patient from a rural area. The heart block tends to improve and therefore only temporary pacing may be required.
The Patient This ECG was obtained from a 28-year-old woman who was found in her home, unresponsive. She was hypotensive at 99/35. No one was available to provide information about past medical history or the onset of this event.. Before you read my comments, pause to look at the ECG and see what YOU think. We would welcome comments below from all our members!. The ECG This ECG is quite challenging, as it illustrates the helpfulness of ECG changes in patient diagnosis, and also points out how important clinical correlation is when the ECG suggests multiple different problems. Forgive me in advance, but there is a lot to say about this ECG.. The heart rate is 148 bpm, and the rhythm is regular, although not perfectly. P waves are not seen, even though the ECG machine gives a P wave axis and PR interval measurement. The rate is fast enough to bury the P waves in the preceding T waves, especially if there is first-degree AV block. Differential dx: sinus tachycardia, PSVT, atrial flutter. The very ...
Karel Frederik Wenckebach (March 24, 1864 - November 11, 1940) was a Dutch anatomist who was a native of the Hague. He studied medicine in Utrecht, and in 1901 become a professor of medicine at the University of Groningen. Later he was a professor at the Universities of Strasbourg (1911-14) and Vienna (1914-29). Wenckebach (pronounced ven-kĕ-bak) is primarily remembered for his work in cardiology. In 1899 he provided a description of irregular pulses due to partial blockage of atrioventricular conduction, creating a progressive lengthening of conduction time in cardiac tissue. The condition was referred to as a "second degree AV block" and later named the "Wenckebach phenomenon" and reclassified as Mobitz type I block in Mobitzs 1924 paper. A similar phenomenon can also occur in the Sinoatrial node where it gives rise to Type I second degree SA block, and this is also known as a Wenckebach block; the two have distinct features on an ECG however. Wenckebach is credited for describing the ...
Lyme disease is a tickborne illness that could cause, weeks to months later, complications involving the joints, central nervous system, and cardiovascular system. We report a case of cardiac manifestation with transitory higher degree atrioventricular block and dysfunction of the left ventricle. Complete resolution without signs of myocardial scar is demonstrated by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
1. What rhythm is demonstrated on this EKG?. 2. How would you manage this patient?. ANSWER:. The rhythm is 3rd degree AV block (AKA complete AV block).. The patient is stable. Atropine can be attempted but is unlikely to be successful. Pacing pads should be placed on the chest. A cause of the heart block should be sought.. The EKG demonstrates a bradycardic rhythm at a rate of approximately 30. P waves are present but there are dropped P waves. The RR intervals are regular and the PR intervals are irregular. This is consistent with 3rd degree AV block.. Differentiating 2nd degree from 3rd degree AV block can sometimes be difficult. The following algorithm is useful. ...
Unlike second-generation TAVI systems on the market today, the Trinity aortic valve is designed to be positioned precisely or even repositioned, even after full implantation, in a safe and simple manner," says principal investigator Christian Hengstenberg, a cardiologist at the German Heart Center, Munich, Germany, with no financial interest or arrangement or affiliation with Transcatheter Technologies. "In our study, Trinitys novel sealing cuff continues to provide outstanding follow-up results without paravalvular leak, an all-too-frequent complication of TAVI. Equally important, the Trinity aortic valve is designed to reduce the risk of atrio-ventricular block significantly through supra-annular positioning of the Trinity valve.". ...
Heart block is an abnormal heart rhythm where the heart beats too slowly (bradycardia). In this condition, the electrical signals that tell the heart to contract are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles). For this reason, it is also called atrioventricular block (AV block).
FRIDAY, May 24, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Keeping blood pressure and blood sugar levels under control might prevent a common heart rhythm disorder called "heart block." Thats the finding from a new study analyzing data on more than 6,000 people, aged 30 and older, in Finland. In the study, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) researchers found that 58 of those people developed heart block over an average follow-up of 25 years.. Heart block, or atrioventricular block, occurs when electrical signals between the hearts four chambers are disrupted. Often felt as a skipped beat, it can lead to the need for a pacemaker.. Every 10 millimeter increase in systolic blood pressure resulted in a 22% greater risk of heart block, and every millimeter increase in fasting blood sugar (glucose) resulted in a 19% greater risk, the findings showed.. The researchers estimated that 47% of the 58 heart block cases could have been prevented with ideal blood pressure and 11% with normal fasting ...

Evidence-based recommendations on dual-chamber pacemakers for symptomatic bradycardia due to sick sinus syndrome without atrioventricular block
SCN5A_HUMAN] Defects in SCN5A are a cause of progressive familial heart block type 1A (PFHB1A) [MIM:113900]; also known as Lenegre-Lev disease or progressive cardiac conduction defect (PCCD). PFHB1A is an autosomal dominant cardiac bundle branch disorder that may progress to complete heart block. PFHB1A is characterized by progressive alteration of cardiac conduction through the His-Purkinje system with right or left bundle branch block and widening of QRS complexes, leading to complete atrioventricular block and causing syncope and sudden death.[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] Defects in SCN5A are the cause of long QT syndrome type 3 (LQT3) [MIM:603830]. Long QT syndromes are heart disorders characterized by a prolonged QT interval on the ECG and polymorphic ventricular arrhythmias. They cause syncope and sudden death in response to exercise or emotional stress. LQT3 inheritance is an autosomal dominant.[7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [:][15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] ...
Selective renal vein renin studies were performed in seven male patients with severe hypertension and atherosclerotic occlusion of a main renal artery. In five patients, peripheral plasma renin activity was increased, and there was evidence for hypersecretion of renin from the affected kidney and suppression of renin release from the opposite kidney. In one patient, who had occlusion of one renal artery and a high-degree stenosis of the contralateral renal artery, the two kidneys appeared to contribute equally to the high circulating plasma renin activity. Removal of the atrophic, ischemic kidney from these patients, plus bypass of the contralateral renal artery in one patient, resulted in cure or improvement of their hypertension. In one patient, despite hypersecretion of renin from the atrophic kidney, surgery was not recommended because his systemic blood plasma renin activity was not elevated. Histologic examination of the excised kidneys revealed moderate glomerular scarring and tubular ...

The Fox genes encode a group of transcription factors that contain a forkhead domain, which forms a structure known as a winged helix. These transcription factors play a crucial role in several key biological processes, including development. High-degree identity in the canonical forkhead domain has been used to divide Fox proteins into 23 families (FoxA to FoxS). We surveyed the genome of three spiralians, the oyster Crassostrea gigas, the limpet Lottia gigantea, and the annelid Capitella teleta. We identified 25 C. gigas fox genes, 21 L. gigantea fox genes, and 25 C. teleta fox genes. The C. gigas fox and L. gigantea fox genes represented 19 of the 23 families, whereas FoxI, Q1, R, and S were missing. The majority of the Fox families were observed within the C. teleta fox genes, with the exception of FoxR and S. In addition, the foxAB-like gene, foxY-like gene, and foxH gene were also present in the three genomes. The conserved FoxC-FoxL1 cluster, observed in mammals, was also found in C. ...

  • Patients with advanced AV block (usually type II second-degree, third-degree, or infranodal AV block ) of irreversible cause should undergo permanent pacemaker placement. (tripdatabase.com)
  • To illustrate this phenomenon we describe a case of 2 : 1 AV block associated with unstable angina, in which revascularization resulted in immediate and durable restoration of 1 : 1 AV conduction, thereby obviating the need for permanent pacemaker implantation. (hindawi.com)
  • Due to the limited understanding of AV block reversibility following revascularization in non-acute MI presentations, it remains difficult to reliably predict which patients presenting with high-grade AV block in the absence of MI may have the potential to avoid permanent pacemaker implantation via coronary revascularization. (hindawi.com)
  • Common causes of reversible AV block were excluded, and the patient was admitted in anticipation of permanent pacemaker implantation. (hindawi.com)
  • Diagnostic electrophysiologic testing can help determine the level of the block and the potential need for a permanent pacemaker. (medscape.com)
  • There are three types: First-degree atrioventricular block - The heart's electrical signals move between the upper and lower chambers of the heart.PR interval greater than 0.20sec. (wikipedia.org)
  • This results in a shortening of the R-R interval as the earlier P-waves reach an increasingly refractory AV node, which is what ultimately results in the non-conducted / blocked QRS complex. (wikipedia.org)
  • Shortening of the PR interval occurs after the blocked sinus impulse, provided that the P wave is conducted to the ventricle. (medscape.com)
  • Postblock PR-interval shortening remains the cornerstone of the diagnosis of Mobitz I block, regardless of whether the periodicity has typical or atypical features. (medscape.com)
  • In Mobitz II block (see the images below), consecutively conducted beats with the same PR interval are followed by a blocked sinus P wave. (medscape.com)
  • A PR interval in the first beat occurs after the block, with the same PR interval as the previous beats. (medscape.com)
  • In addition, diagnosing Mobitz II block in the presence of a shortened post-block PR interval is impossible. (medscape.com)
  • If the PR interval is more than 300 milliseconds, it is considered "marked" first-degree AV block and the P waves may be buried in the preceding T wave. (statpearls.com)
  • In severe cases or emergencies, atropine administration or isoproterenol infusion would allow for temporary relief if bradycardia is the cause for the blockage, but if His-Purkinje system is the result of the AV block then pharmacologic therapy is not recommended. (wikipedia.org)
  • When a P wave is present and not followed by a QRS wave (and heart contraction), there is an atrioventricular block, and a very slow pulse (bradycardia). (medlineplus.gov)
  • Several physiologic effects of adenosine may be seen during infusion, including atrioventricular (AV) block, hypotension, sinus tachycardia (as a reflex mechanism), and sinus bradycardia. (springer.com)
  • Third-degree atrioventricular block - No association between P waves and QRS complexes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Third-degree atrioventricular block is the most severe of the types of heart ventricle blockages. (wikipedia.org)
  • High degree atrioventricular blocks are documented in 23. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • We report a rare case of a severe tetanus disease complicated by a heart failure with a third degree atrioventricular block resulting in a cardiac arrest and asystole. (thefreedictionary.com)

  • The following Tildiem Atrioventricular Block First Degree side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers. (patientsville.com)
  • This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Atrioventricular Block First Degree, can occur, and what you can do about them. (patientsville.com)
  • This Atrioventricular Block First Degree side effect was reported by a health professional from FRANCE. (patientsville.com)
  • AV block can be described by degree (based on ECG appearance) or by anatomical level of block. (bmj.com)
  • There are multiple causes of first-degree AV block, including simply being a normal variant. (statpearls.com)
  • Because type I Mobitz block occurs in regular cycles, there is always a fixed ratio between the number of P waves and the number of QRS complexes per cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • While there is no specific definition of how many shares constitute a block, most people using the term refer to holding or trading more than 10,000 shares and/or shares worth more than $200,000. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Based on the P waves and QRS complexes that can be evaluated from these readings, that relationship will be the standardized test if an AV block is present or not. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is usually a fixed number of non-conducted P waves for every successfully conducted QRS complex, and this ratio is often specified in describing Mobitz II blocks. (wikipedia.org)
  • 179 Type II Mobitz block also usually occurs with a fixed P:QRS ratio, with a set number of P waves for every successfully elicited QRS. (wikipedia.org)
  • Higher numbers of P waves for every QRS indicate more severe block. (wikipedia.org)
  • Atrioventricular (AV) conduction is evaluated by assessing the relationship between the P waves and QRS complexes. (statpearls.com)
  • Reversibility of high grade atrioventricular block with revasculization in coronary artery disease without infarction: A literature Review. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The reversibility of high-grade AV block in non-MI coronary artery disease (CAD), however, is rarely described in the literature. (hindawi.com)
  • Herein we perform a literature review to assess what is known about the reversibility of high-grade AV block after right coronary artery revascularization in CAD patients who present without an acute MI. (hindawi.com)
  • Potential reversibility of high-grade AV block in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients without an acute MI, in contrast, is a relatively unexplored concept. (hindawi.com)
  • The signature cardiac lesion is atrioventricular block [congenital heart block (CHB)], but in 15% to 20% of cases there is an associated, frequently fatal, cardiomyopathy. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Although the terms infranodal block or infrahisian block are often applied to this disorder, they refer to the anatomic location of the block, whereas Mobitz II refers to an electrocardiographic pattern. (wikipedia.org)
  • 179 This ratio is also frequently specified in referring to "3:1", "4:1", "5:1", or higher Mobitz type II block. (wikipedia.org)
  • Often, a long rhythm strip allowing visualization of the blocked beat and the flanking conducted beats is critical. (medscape.com)
  • A pause encompassing the blocked P wave is equal to exactly twice the sinus cycle length. (medscape.com)
  • However, hypotension and sinus tachycardia may be seen in the absence of AV block. (springer.com)
  • The presence of some physiologic effect (e.g., sinus tachycardia or hypotension) versus AV block was recorded as was PV reconnection. (springer.com)
  • Furthermore, the presence of a physiologic effect (e.g., sinus tachycardia or hypotension) in the absence of AV block may reflect an insufficient dose. (springer.com)
  • Herein, we present a literature review prompted by a case of unexpected postrevascularization reversal of symptomatic AV block. (hindawi.com)
