Finally, we are starting a destination therapy study* at a time when many non-transplant eligible patients with biventricular
failure have been dying on medical therapy or languishing with right ventricular failure on LVAD support.
His ECG after coronary intervention showed normal biventricular
paced rhythm with a relative decrease in the T-wave amplitude (Figure 3).
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
Clinical experience with biventricular
and/or LV-based pacing dates from the initial case report by Cazeau et al (12).
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 SynCardia Total Artificial Heart is the only approved device that eliminates the source of end-stage biventricular
heart failure in which the native heart's two ventricles can no longer pump enough blood for the patient to survive.
Epicardial activation of leftventricularwall prolongs QT interval and transmural dispersion of repolarization: implications for biventricular
The results of the PAVE [Left Ventricular-Based Cardiac Stimulation Post AV Nodal Ablation Evaluation] study suggest that biventricular
pacing should be the preferred mode of therapy in patients undergoing AV nodal ablation for control of chronic atrial fibrillation," PAVE principal investigator Dr.
Implantation of the Total Artificial Heart is similar to a heart transplant in that it replaces both heart ventricles, eliminating biventricular
They suffered from end-stage biventricular
(both sides) heart failure in which the ventricles in their diseased hearts could no longer pump enough blood for them to survive.
