BACKGROUND Multisite LV stimulation therapy allows for stimulation of two different left ventricular pacing vectors within a single LV lead and may improve responsiveness to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). This study prospectively evaluated the safety and efficacy of the MultiPole Pacing (MPP) feature in CRT non-responder patients. METHODS AND RESULTS CRT non-responders with a standard CRT-D indication were eligible for enrollment into the MPP Sub-Study. Patient status, NYHA classificat...

INTRODUCTION: The novel two-lead CRT-DX system utilizes a floating atrial dipole on the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) lead, and when implanted with an LV lead, offers a two-lead cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) system with AV synchrony. This study compared complication rates and CRT response among subjects implanted with a two-lead CRT-DX system to those subjects implanted with a standard three-lead CRT-D system. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 240 subjects from the QP ExCE...

BACKGROUND: Central sleep apnea (CSA) is a breathing disorder caused by the intermittent absence of central respiratory drive. Transvenous phrenic nerve stimulation is a new therapeutic option, recently approved by the FDA , for the treatment of CSA. OBJECTIVE: To describe the technique used to implant the transvenous phrenic nerve stimulation system (the remedē System, Respicardia, Inc). METHODS: The remedē System is placed in the pectoral region, typically on the right side. A single stimulati...
