2,619 Possible Causes for Leads, Pacemaker

Did you mean: lead i, Pacemaker

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    We describe the case of a 71-year-old woman who developed progressive cognitive impairment following insertion of a permanent pacemaker for sinoatrial arrests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our report highlights the need to consider A. urinae as a causative agent of urinary tract infections because if not identified and properly treated it may lead to endocarditis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to the outside) or the ureters (the tubes leading from the kidneys to the bladder.)[parkview.com]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Interstitial cells of Cajal are known as the pacemaker cells of the gut and help digest food and move it through the gut.[theconversation.com] Work absenteeism is substantial, leading to considerable socio-economic impact.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The use of multiplex PCR panels in routine diagnostics likely leads to improved case management and higher case numbers in surveillance systems.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tricuspid Valve Stenosis

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome

    First case was diagnosed as sick sinus syndrome at 8 weeks of gestation having Mobitz type I heart block (Wenckebach block), and needed temporary pacemaker during caesarean[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This anomaly resulted in difficulty in implanting a traditional hook-on atrial lead.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A 49-year-old woman experienced syncope 10 months after DDD pacemaker implantation for sick sinus syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumopericardium

    Abstract Cardiac perforation is an infrequent but potentially life-threatening complication of pacemaker implantation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 75-year-old man presented with a spontaneous right pneumothorax and pneumopericardium following right atrial pacemaker lead perforation, which is a rare complication, with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A permanent pacemaker implantation was recommended.[academic.oup.com]

  • Brucella Melitensis

    Abstract We report a case that, to the best of our knowledge, is the only published instance of infection of a pacemaker and its leads by Brucella melitensis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The etiology of the disease is unknown but viral, bacterial, protozoal and neoplastic as well as physicochemical agents may stimulate a particular immune response leading[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Brucellosis may lead to complications that affect different organ systems, including the liver and spleen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dextrocardia

    The literature regarding implantation of pacemaker in dextrocardia is scarce.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dextrocaria can be detected in a 12-lead ECG. An alerting sign is a P and QRS inversion in lead 1.[medicmadness.com] The leads were connected to a double-chamber pacemaker.[academic.oup.com]

  • Scar Tissue

    This was treated successfully by local radiotherapy after extraction of the pacemaker and implantation of a new pacemaker on the opposite side.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In certain circumstances, the granulation leads to contraction of the scar and to poor structural organisation of the components of regenerating muscle and scar tissue.[leadingedgephysio.com] It is commonly advised to avoid scar tissue while placing the LV lead. However, whether individual patients benefit from this strategy remains unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Because of their role in pacemaker function, defective HCN channels are natural candidates for contributing to epileptogenesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a patient with WS and idiopathic generalized epilepsy who had been wrongly diagnosed with focal epilepsy, which leads to the prescription of carbamazepine with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] study is to identify evidence of hyperexcitability in precisely measured visual evoked responses and to understand the nature of changes in excitation and inhibition that lead[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
