INTRODUCTION: Heart failure patients with a history of atrial fibrillation (AF) and ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF) are known to have worse outcomes. However, there are limited data on the temporal relationship between development of these arrhythmias and the risk of subsequent congestive heart failure (CHF) exacerbation and death. METHODS: The study cohort comprised 5511 patients implanted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) in landmark clinical trials (MADIT-II, MADIT-RISK, MADIT-CRT, MADIT-RIT, and RAID) who were in sinus rhythm at enrollment...

INTRODUCTION: Biventricular pacing (BiVp) improves outcomes in systolic heart failure patients with electrical dyssynchrony. BiVp is delivered from epicardial left ventricular (LV) and endocardial right ventricular (RV) electrodes. Acute electrical activation changes with different LV-RV stimulation offsets can help guide individually optimized BiVp programming. We sought to study the BiVp ventricular activation with different LV-RV offsets and compare with 12-lead ECG. METHODS: In five patients with BiVp (63 ± 17-year-old, 80% male, LV ejection fraction 27 ± 6%), we evaluated acute ventricular epicardial activation, varying LV-RV offsets in 20 ms increments from -40 to 80 ms, using electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI) to obtain absolute ventricular electrical uncoupling (VEUabs, absolute difference in average LV and average RV activation time) and total activation time (TAT)...

INTRODUCTION: Ventricular tachycardia storm or electrical storm (ES) is a common complication following left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. The factors contributing to ES and outcomes are less studied. The study aimed to determine the factors associated with ES and the probability of survival in patients undergoing LVAD in three tertiary centers over a span of 15 years. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study on all patients who underwent LVAD implantation at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Phoenix, and Jacksonville) from January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2020...

INTRODUCTION: Catheter ablation of ectopy originating from the vicinity of the His bundle can be challenging. METHODS AND RESULTS: We report a case of a 33-year-old man with narrow QRS ectopy with preferential conduction from a para-Hisian origin to the proximal left fascicles, which was successfully eliminated by radiofrequency ablation in the right coronary cusp, guided by ultrahigh-resolution mapping of the His bundle, bundle branch, and fascicular electrograms...

INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is often performed under general anaesthesia (GA) or deep sedation. Anaesthetic availability is limited in many centers, and deep sedation is prohibited in some countries without anaesthetic support. Very high-power short duration (vHPSD-90W/4 s) PVI using the Q-Dot catheter is generally well tolerated under mild conscious sedation (MCS) though an understanding of catheter stability and long-term effectiveness is lacking. We analyzed lesion metrics and 12-month freedom from atrial arrythmia with this approach...

INTRODUCTION: Left atrial (LA) low voltage areas (LVA) are a controversial target in atrial fibrillation ablation procedures. However, LVA and LA volume are good predictors of arrhythmia recurrence in ablation-naïve patients. Their predictive value in progressively diseased pre-ablated atria is uncertain. METHODS: Consecutive patients with recurrent atrial fibrillation (AF) or atrial tachycardia (AT), who were scheduled for repeat LA ablation, were enrolled in the prospective Bernau ablation registry between 2016 and 2020...

INTRODUCTION: Proactive esophageal cooling has been FDA cleared to reduce the likelihood of ablation-related esophageal injury resulting from radiofrequency (RF) cardiac ablation procedures. Data suggest that procedure times for RF pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) also decrease when proactive esophageal cooling is employed instead of luminal esophageal temperature (LET) monitoring. Reduced procedure times may allow increased electrophysiology (EP) lab throughput. We aimed to quantify the change in EP lab throughput of PVI cases after the introduction of proactive esophageal cooling...

INTRODUCTION: The presence of low-voltage zones (LVZs) in the left atrium (LA) is associated with the recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) following pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). However, there is variability and conflict in the data regarding predictors of LVZs as reported in previous studies. The objective of this study was to identify predictors for the presence of LVZs in a cohort of patients with persistent AF. METHODS: The study prospectively enrolled 439 patients with persistent AF who were scheduled for ablation...

INTRODUCTION: Recent studies have reported the efficacy of the cryoballoon (CB)-guided left atrial roof block line (LARB) creation in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). However, it can be technically challenging to attach the balloon to the left atrial (LA) roof due to its anatomical variations. We designed a new procedure called the "Raise-up Technique," which may facilitate the firm adhesion of the CB to the LA roof during freezing. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the Raise-up technique in LARB creation...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is common following open heart surgery, and is associated with significant morbidity. Medications used for ventricular rate control of POAF may not be effective in controlling rapid ventricular rates during the postoperative period because of increased sympathetic tone. The purpose of this study was to develop nonpharmacologic rate control of POAF by atrioventricular node (AVN) fat pad stimulation using clinically available temporary pacing wires in the canine sterile pericarditis model...

INTRODUCTION: Few studies have demonstrated a high degree of atrioventricular (AV) synchrony with a new leadless pacemaker called Micra AV. Our group previously reported a new and unique sensing method. We believe that this novel sensing method, "Simplified A3 method," might facilitate better AV synchrony than a conventional sensing method in almost all cases with Micra AV implantation. METHODS: We conducted a non-randomized retrospective study comparing the two pacing methods at two centers...
