Cardiovascular revascularization medicine : including molecular interventions
This report reviews the management of a case of Giant Cell Myocarditis (GCM) that presented with cardiogenic shock. This case highlights the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to the care of these patients including the use of a mechanical circulatory support (MCS) device. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier Inc.

Die Telemedizin ist in einigen Regionen Deutschlands bereits fester Bestandteil des Rettungsdienstes. Dieser Fallbericht handelt von einem Telenotarzteinsatz, bei dem die initiale Telekonsultation durch eine an der Einsatzstelle befindliche Notärztin erfolgte. Der Patient hatte eine lebensbedrohliche ventrikuläre Tachykardie mit zunehmender Kreisla...
Current Cardiovascular Risk Reports
Purpose of ReviewVentricular tachycardia (VT) is a significant cause of cardiac sudden death (SCD) in various cardiomyopathy diseases. The following review will focus on the role of cardiac imaging in risk assessment for VT induction and novel technique and evidence regarding VT therapy including VT ablation and implantable cardiac defibrillator (I...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) due to recurrent ventricular tachycardia is an important clinical sequela in patients with structural heart disease. As a result, ventricular tachycardia (VT) has emerged as a major clinical and public health problem. The mechanism of VT is predominantly mediated by re-entry in the presence of arrhythmogenic substrate (sc...
Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review
Empirical approaches to targeting the ventricular tachycardia (VT) substrate include mapping of late potentials, local abnormal electrogram, pace-mapping and homogenisation of the abnormal signals. These approaches do not try to differentiate between the passive or active role of local signals as the critical components of the VT circuit. By not co...

Background Catheter ablation for ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) has significantly evolved over the past decade. However, different ablation strategies showed inconsistency in acute and long-term outcomes. Methods We searched the databases of Medline, Embase and Cochrane Library t...

Contemporary data from prospective multicentre registries on catheter ablation in pediatric patients are sparse. Aim of the European Pediatric Catheter Ablation Registry EUROPA was to contribute data to fill this gap of knowledge. From July 2012 to June 2017, data on catheter ablation in pediatric patients (≤18 years of age) including a 1-year foll...
In Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial - Reduce Inappropriate Therapy (MADIT-RIT), high-rate cutoff (arm B) and delayed therapy (arm C) reduced the risk of inappropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) interventions when compared with conventional programming (arm A); however, appropriate but unnecessary therapies we...

A 57-year-old male suffering from cardiogenic syncope was found to have preexcited QRS on surface ECG at admission. A dual-chamber ICD was implanted after discovering intermittent high degree A-V block and ventricular tachycardia during hospitalization. An EP study was performed 2 days later. Fasciculoventricular accessory pathway was diagnosed bas...
