INTRODUCTION: The incidence of pacemaker-mediated tachycardia (PMT) varies as a function of patient characteristics, device programming and algorithm specificities. We investigated the efficacy of the Boston Scientific algorithm by reviewing PMT episodes in a large device population. METHODS: In this multicenter study, we included 328 patients implanted with a Boston Scientific device: 157 non-dependent patients with RYTHMIQ™ activated (RYTHMIQ group), 76 patients with permanent AV-conduction disorder (AV-block group) and 95 Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy patients (CRT group)...

BACKGROUND: In Boston Scientific dual-chamber devices, the RYTHMIQ algorithm aims to minimize right ventricular pacing. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the performance of this algorithm determining (1) the appropriateness of the switch from the AAI(R) mode with backup VVI pacing to the DDD(R) mode in case of suspected loss of atrioventricular (AV) conduction and (2) the rate of recorded pacemaker-mediated tachycardia (PMT) when AV hysteresis searches for restored AV conduction...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
