Experience with implantable cardioverter-defibrillator therapy in grown-ups with congenital heart disease


Tomaske, M; Bauersfeld, U (2008). Experience with implantable cardioverter-defibrillator therapy in grown-ups with congenital heart disease. Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE, 31(Suppl ):S35-S37.

Abstract

Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) are increasingly implanted for primary or secondary prevention of sudden death in young patients with congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, or channelopathies. Although major advances in ICD technology and implant techniques have facilitated ICD therapy in young patients, complications such as lead failures, inappropriate shocks, system infections, and negative psychosocial impacts are of concern. The various underlying cardiovascular disease states and a lack of standardized ICD protocols for young patients often necessitate individualized implant techniques, ICD programming, and follow-up. Young ICD patients need a thorough follow-up to ensure adequate therapy, and psychosocial problems have to be addressed.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
