Introduction: Elderly patients with ASD often present with chronic atrial fibrillation and large left to right shunt. This study reports the experience of left atrial appendage (LAA) and atrial septal defect (ASD) closure in patients with significant ASD and chronic atrial fibrillation. Methods / Results: We report six consecutive elderly patients with chronic atrial fibrillation and significant ASD who underwent LAA and fenestrated ASD closure from 1 January 2014 until 31 December 2019. All per...

Abstract Background Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are underutilized in Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Improve SCA is the largest prospective study to evaluate the benefit of ICD therapy in under-represented geographies. This analysis reports the primary objective of the study. Objectives To determine whether primary prevention (PP) patients with specific risk factors (1.5PP: syncope, NSVT, PVCs>10/h, LVEF Methods A total of 3,889 patients were incl...

BACKGROUND: Despite available evidence that implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) reduce all-cause mortality among patients at risk for sudden cardiac death, utilization of ICDs is low especially in developing countries. OBJECTIVE: To summarize reasons for ICD or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator implant refusal by patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest (Improve SCA) in developing countries. METHODS: Primary prevention (PP) and secondary prevention (SP) patients from c...

BACKGROUND: Steroid-eluting (SE) electrodes suppress local inflammation and lower pacing capture thresholds (PCT); however, their effectiveness on quadripolar left ventricular (LV) leads in the cardiac vein is not fully studied. We evaluated the effectiveness of SE on all four LV pacing electrodes in human subjects enrolled in the Medtronic Attain® Performa™ quadripolar LV lead study. METHODS: A total of 1,097 subjects were included in this evaluation. At each follow-up visit (1, 3, 6, and 12 mo...
