Optimizing CRT and New Advances

  • Description
  • Program
  • Faculty

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is more than merely biventricular pacing in patients with ventricular conduction delay and systolic heart failure.  With the introduction of new lead technology and pacing algorithms, prescribing CRT becomes more complex.  Ultimately, the goal is a patient-specific biventricular pacing regimen that optimizes response and clinical care. 

This series of CRT lectures is presented by international experts offering their opinions regarding controversial topics in CRT with the intent to provide a review of the literature as well as helpful guidance for specific challenging clinical scenarios.

CIED Learning Pathway - Heart Rhythm 2017

  • Description
  • Learning Objectives
  • Presentations / Faculty

The CIED Learning Pathway contains presentations from Heart Rhythm 2017, held on May 10 - 13 in Chicago, IL

Nonpharmacologic therapies for management of arrhythmias is expanding beyond merely pacemakers and defibrillators.  Advances in device technology now provide a host of features to assist with monitoring for disease, such as acute heart failure as well as occurrence of atrial arrhythmias even when asymptomatic.  These advances are especially impactful with remote monitoring, which provides prompt response to device-stored data. The future of implanted devices will likely be focused on monitoring physiologic parameters with the intent of early intervention to avert decompensation or adverse sequelae.

Real World Experience with the Subcutaneous ICD in the United States: The S-ICD Post-Market Approval Study

  • Description
  • Faculty
  • Support

The subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) was developed to reduce short and long term complications associated with transvenous ICD leads. Early studies in the US and Europe were enriched with younger patients with less left ventricular systolic dysfunction and fewer comorbidities than transvenous ICD subjects, making comparisons between systems difficult. Following FDA approval in 2012 a prospective registry of the S-ICD was undertaken, which is the largest study of this device to date. 

Pre-implantation patients were enrolled if they met criteria for ICD, passed at least one vector in ECG screening and had a life expectancy > 1 year. Implant technique, programming and conversion testing were performed using the standard of care of investigational centers. Results were analyzed with descriptive statistics, Kaplan Meier time to event analysis, and multivariate logistic regression.

Following FDA approval of the S-ICD, a prospective study was initiated.  The cohort and short term results will be presented.
