This book covers all the major aspects associated with pathophysiological development of cardiac arrhythmias (covering enhanced or suppressed automaticity, triggered activity, or re-entry), from basic concepts through disease association, limitations of current pharmacotherapy and implant therapies and on-going trials and analysis of new biomarkers based on current knowledge of cellular interaction and signalling. The book describes novel and state-of-the-art methods for differentiating between the major types of arrhythmia, structural abnormalities and current practice guidelines and determination of risk stratification associated with sudden cardiac death. A particular focus is on arrhythmias associated with atrial fibrillation and includes details of associations with cardiac disease, current detection, analysis and imaging and future perspectives.a... part of ICD placement guidelines, helping identification of suitable candidates among patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy ... Cycle length of the pacing train, which succeeds in terminating VT in the electrophysiology laboratory, can then be used to ... A number of specialized tools have been developed by several companies to automate template matching of the paced QRS to that of the target PVC.
