If successful, biventricular
conversion gives the patient a normal circulation and can prevent complications associated with single ventricle circulation including renal failure, arrhythmias, and the need for a heart transplant.
Implantation of coronary venous lead is technically the most difficult part of biventricular
This study affirmed our belief that biventricular
pacing was important in patients with complete heart block," says Bruce Wilkoff, MD, Director of Cardiac Pacing and Tachyarrhythmia Devices at Cleveland Clinic.
Originally used as a permanent replacement heart, the SynCardia TAH received FDA approval in 2004 as a bridge to transplant for transplant-eligible patients dying from end-stage biventricular
Many are also candidates for cardiac resynchronization therapy via biventricular
pacing, which entails a far less invasive implantation procedure.
patients who wait for heart transplants every year, the FDA said in a statement announcing the approval of the CardioWest temporary artificial heart in October, for "use as a bridge to transplantation in cardiac transplant-eligible candidates at risk for imminent death from biventricular
It is a cardioverting device and a biventricular
MCS devices include left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), biventricular
assist devices (BiVADs) and SynCardia's Total Artificial Heart.
The contract is for the supply, installation and commissioning of the chamber shielding technology anechoic biventricular
for research laboratory siltec, under the project: "the acquisition of research equipment for the protection laboratory for electromagnetic", case no.
It is the only approved device that eliminates the source of end-stage biventricular
According to ESC 2007 Guidelines for Cardiac Pacing (4), there is neither a clear consensus about biventricular
pacing nor the usage of implantable cardiac defibrillator for patients with overt myotonic heart disease.
Heart failure patients who have cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) may see greater functional and blood flow improvements of biventricular
pacing by adding a structured exercise program.
