Prognostic impact of left ventricular ejection fraction in patients with electrical storm

Ventricular tachyarrhythmias are severe and potentially life-threatening heart rhythm disorders. Electrical storm (ES) is defined as ≥ 3 distinct episodes of sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) or fibrillation (VF) requiring implantable …

Regional differences in patient characteristics and outcomes during uninterrupted anticoagulation with dabigatran versus warfarin in catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation: the RE-CIRCUIT study

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most commonly sustained arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice. During the past decades, catheter ablation has evolved into an effective interventional treatment for AF [ 1 – 4 ]. However, the ablation procedure …


A randomized trial evaluating the accuracy of AF detection by four external ambulatory ECG monitors compared to permanent pacemaker AF detection

Detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) provides an indication for anticoagulation preventing catastrophic thromboembolic events [ 1 , 2 ]. Inaccurate detection of AF could put patients at risk from serious bleeding events if anticoagulation is …


Midrange ejection fraction as a risk factor for deterioration of cardiofunction after permanent pacemaker implantation

Cardiovascular implantable electronic devices have become an important treatment for arrhythmia and heart failure. They can alleviate patients’ symptoms and even improve prognosis. However, 10.3% of patients implanted with common dual chamber …


Long-term mode and timing of premature ventricular complex recurrence following successful catheter ablation

Frequent premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are common and may occur in 1–4% of the general population [ 1 ]. An elevated PVC burden may cause significant palpitations and lead to left ventricular dysfunction or enlargement [ 1 – 5 ]. Prior …

Über diese Zeitschrift

The Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology is an international publication devoted to fostering research in and development of interventional techniques and therapies for the management of cardiac arrhythmias. It is designed primarily to present original research studies and scholarly scientific reviews of basic and applied science and clinical research in this field. The Journal will adopt a multidisciplinary approach to link physical, experimental, and clinical sciences as applied to the development of and practice in interventional electrophysiology. The Journal will examine techniques ranging from molecular, chemical and pharmacologic therapies to device and ablation technology. Accordingly, original research in clinical, epidemiologic and basic science arenas will be considered for publication. Applied engineering or physical science studies pertaining to interventional electrophysiology will be encouraged. The Journal is committed to providing comprehensive and detailed treatment of major interventional therapies and innovative techniques in a structured and clinically relevant manner. It is directed at clinical practitioners and investigators in the rapidly growing field of interventional electrophysiology. The editorial staff and board reflect this bias and include noted international experts in this area with a wealth of expertise in basic and clinical investigation. Peer review of all submissions, conflict of interest guidelines and periodic editorial board review of all Journal policies have been established.
