If your heart is not beating efficiently and you meet the eligibility criteria, you may be eligible for a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) heart device. A cardiac resynchronization therapy device is designed to treat heart failure.. A CRT device sends small, undetectable electrical impulses to both lower chambers of the heart to help them beat together in a more synchronized pattern. This improves the hearts ability to pump blood and oxygen to the body. The heart device itself is actually a tiny computer, plus a battery, contained in a small titanium metal case that is about the size of a pocket watch. It weighs about 3 ounces.. In addition to the heart device, insulated wires called leads are implanted for two purposes: to carry information signals from your heart to the heart device, and to carry electrical impulses to your heart. The third part of your implantable device system is a programmer, an external computer located in your doctors office or clinic that is used to program the ...

The purpose of this study is to determine whether using an echocardiogram (a painless test where ultrasound is used to see your heart) while using mild electrical stimulation from your own CRT-D device to stimulate the ventricles (the lower chambers of the heart) to squeeze one slightly earlier than the other will show a sustained increase your hearts productivity (Cardiac Output (CO)), following implantation of a Cardiac Resynchronization Device (CRT-D). We believe that squeezing some parts of the heart earlier than others may make the heart a stronger pump ...
A daily routine of 60 minutes of high-intensity stretching at the patients end range of motion is required to permanently improve motion. Many patients with severe motion loss that are treated with physical therapy alone need additional surgeries due to the simple fact that it is not feasible for a Physical Therapist to stretch a patient 60 minutes each and every day of the week. Home mechanical therapy devices provide patients with the opportunity to be treated on a daily basis in the comfort of their own home. In order to recreate the high-intensity stretch provided by a Physical Therapist, a home mechanical therpay device must be able to apply forces that mimic those provided by a Physical Therapist. A recent study demonstrated that home mechanical therapy devices can be categorized as being either high- or low-intensity devices, and that only the ERMI device was able to apply forces to the joint that mimic those of a Physical Therapisy*.. By recreating physical therapist in the patients ...

© 2016 American College of Cardiology Foundation. Published by Elsevier. Objectives The goal of this study was to assess the contemporary and historical success rates of transvenous left ventricular (LV) lead placement for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), their change over time, and the reasons for failure. Background In selected patients, CRT improves morbidity and mortality, but the placement of the LV lead can be technically challenging. Methods A literature search was used to identify all studies reporting success rates of LV lead placement for CRT via the coronary sinus (CS) route. A total of 164 studies were identified, and a meta-analysis was performed. Results The studies included 29,503 patients: 74% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 72% to 76%) were male; their mean age was 66 years (95% CI: 65 to 67); their mean New York Heart Association functional class was 2.8 (95% CI: 2.7 to 2.9); the mean LV ejection fraction was 26% (95% CI: 25% to 28%); and the mean QRS duration was 155 ms (95%

Considerable proportion of patients does not respond to the cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). This study investigated clinical relevance of left ventricular electrode local electrogram delay from the beginning of QRS (QLV). We hypothesized that longer QLV indicating more optimal lead placement in the late activated regions is associated with the higher probability of positive CRT response. We conducted a retrospective, single-centre analysis of 161 consecutive patients with heart failure and LBBB or nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay (IVCD) treated with CRT. We routinely intend to implant the LV lead in a region with long QLV. Clinical response to CRT, left ventricular (LV) reverse remodelling (i.e. decrease in LV end-systolic diameter - LVESD ≥10%) and reduction in plasma level of NT-proBNP |30% at 12-month post-implant were the study endpoints. We analyzed association between pre-implant variables and the study endpoints. Clinical CRT response rate reached 58%, 84% and 92% in the

The global cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) market is expected to reach USD 9.2 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing prevalence of cardiac disorders and rising incidences of heart failure are expected to boost the CRT market growth over the forecast period.. According to statistics published by the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation in 2016, about 6.0 million people within the U.S. region suffer from cardiac disorders, of which 0.8 million are affected by atrioventricular block leading to cardiac failure. Such a huge number leads to an increased cost of about USD 20.0-56.0 billion annually. CRT devices are being predominantly used to prevent the surgical cost and readmission rate in hospitals, thereby propelling its growth.. In addition, the on-going research to develop smaller, wireless/leadless and long-lasting CRT devices is expected to be a vital impact rendering driver. For instance, in September 2016, EBR Systems Inc., announced that it ...
Objective Ethnic and racial disparities in cardiac care may partially result from over-provision of care among white patients. We hypothesized that whites were more likely than blacks and Hispanics to receive cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRT-D) devices outside of ACC/AHA/HRS guidelines.. Methods We analyzed 01/2005- 04/2007 data from the ACC-National Cardiovascular Data Registry for implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). We identified white, black and Hispanic patients who received CRT-D. We then fit a multivariable hierarchical logistic regression model with full ACC/AHA/HRS guideline concordance (QRS duration ,=0.12 ms, LVEF ,,26,35%, and class III or IV CHF) as a binary outcome. Independent variables included race/ethnicity, age, gender, cardiomyopathy etiology, duration of CHF, LVEF, blood pressure, QRS duration/morphology, prior coronary revascularization, atrial fibrillation, cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, renal failure, and pulmonary ...
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) helps the heart beat with healthy rhythm. CRT includes implanting an electronic device (pacemaker) under the skin to coordinate the timing of the contraction of the hearts lower chambers (ventricles), and improve the hearts pumping function.
Introduction: Although ICDs are used inconsistently among eligible patients, it is unknown if similar variation exists in the use of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices.. Methods: Within the National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) ICD Registry, we identified 72,115 patients with a class I or IIa indication for CRT according to 2008 guidelines who underwent ICD or CRTD implantation at 1521 hospitals between April 1, 2010 and June 30, 2014. A hierarchical model including hospital specific random-effects was used to identify patient, provider, and hospital factors associated with CRTD use. We then determined risk-standardized rates of CRTD use across hospitals for the overall population and by strength of guideline indication. We applied 2012 CRT guidelines in secondary analyses.. Results: A total of 62,900 (87.2%) eligible patients by 2008 guidelines received CRTD, with 60,730 (84.2%) having a class I indication and 11,385 (15.8%) a class IIa indication for CRTD. Patient factors ...

We expected to see a difference, but we were struck by the magnitude of these results, said Daniel B. Kramer, M.D., M.P.H., lead author of the study and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.. Patients functional status clearly predicts survival. Our hope would be to use activity as a factor in not just predicting outcomes but also to guide strategies that may improve outcomes. But that is much further down the line. Researchers studied the ALTITUDE registry, a nationwide database that involved 98,437 patients enrolled in a remote monitoring program. About 57 percent of the patients had received a new or replacement ICD and 43 percent had received cardiac resynchronization therapy cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT-D) devices in 2008-12. CRT-D therapy combines an ICD with cardiac resynchronization therapy. Patients were followed for a median 2.2 years.. What is intriguing about our results is that looking at just one piece of information ...

An assembly and method for effecting the condition of a mitral valve annulus of a heart includes a guide wire configured to be fed into the coronary sinus of the heart, and a mitral valve annulus therapy device configured to be slidingly received on the guide wire and advanced into the coronary sinus of the heart on the guide wire. A guide tube may further be employed for guiding the device into the coronary sinus. An introducer which may be employed for pushing the device into or pulling device out of the heart has a mechanism for releasably locking to the device. This enables substitution of the device if needed. Also, the crossover point of the circumflex artery and coronary sinus may be determined and avoided when the device is deployed.
