Background null A subset of patients experience psychological distress following insertion of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) and ICD support groups are recommended, however access to these groups is limited. This study aimed: to gauge a better understanding of patients' key ICD-related concerns; to determine patient interest in a support group and topics deemed helpful to address in a support group; and to examine factors which affect patient inclination to attend. null Methods ...

This study examined mechanisms by which social cognitive theory (SCT) interventions influence health outcomes and the importance of involving partners in recovery following the patients' receipt of an initial implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). We compared direct and indirect intervention effects on patient health outcomes with data from a randomized clinical trial involving two telephone-based interventions delivered during the first 3 months post-ICD implant by experienced trained nu...

AIMS Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) deliver therapy for life-threatening arrhythmias. Evidence suggests that ICD candidates have misconceptions regarding ICD therapy and unmet information needs. We undertook a pilot feasibility trial comparing a nurse-led educational intervention plus standard care, vs. standard pre-ICD implantation care. Secondary aims included examination of anxiety, quality of life, and shock anxiety. METHODS AND RESULTS Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator ...

Background: Genetic heart diseases often affect young people, can be clinically heterogeneous and pose an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a lifesaving therapy. Impacts on prospective and long-term psychological and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) after ICD implant in patients with genetic heart diseases are unknown. We investigate the psychological functioning and HR-QoL over time in patients with genetic heart diseases wh...

PURPOSE Although implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) could prevent the sudden death of ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with ischemic heart disease, it could not effectively prevent the recurrence of ventricular tachycardia. Several studies have suggested that catheter ablation may effectively decrease the incidence of ICD events, but relevant dates from randomized controlled trials were limited. METHODS A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials were ...

Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is a multidisciplinary intervention including patient assessment and medical actions to promote stabilization, management of cardiovascular risk factors, vocational support, psychosocial management, physical activity counselling, and prescription of exercise training. Millions of people with cardiac implantable electronic devices live in Europe and their numbers are progressively increasing, therefore, large subsets of patients admitted in CR facilities have a cardiac...

BACKGROUND Bilateral cardiac sympathetic denervation (BCSD) is a surgical treatment for refractory ventricular arrhythmias. Although the procedure has shown efficacy at reducing cardiac arrhythmias, its impact on mental health is unknown. In the current study we examined associations between the BCSD procedure and mental health. METHODS 10 ventricular arrhythmia patients undergoing BCSD completed assessments of anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress symptoms at pre- and post-BCSD time poi...
