New permanent endocardial atrial J lead: implantation techniques and clinical performance

Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE
J C MessengerN L Stephenson

Abstract

The potential benefits of pacing systems which restore A-V synchrony have long been recognized. However, availability of atrial leads which are easily implanted and which consistently perform well has been limited. A new version of the silicone rubber tined J leads is now available. Changes were made in the insulation material, conductor configuration, tine configuration, and a J memory coil was added. After over three years of use in 100 patients, we conclude that these leads are easier to implant than previous atrial leads, and that they demonstrate excellent clinical performance.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
