36/Elimination of major vascular access complications (VAC) using ultrasound-guided vascular access and vessel closure protocols during Invasive EP procedures (IEPP)
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(Suppl. 1):abstr36
Introduction: Vascular access complications (VAC) are common complications associated with invasive electrophysiology procedures (IEPP) and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Reducing the risk of VAC is of considerable interest to Electrophysiologists. We studied the impact of vascular access and vessel closure protocols utilizing ultrasound-guided vascular access (UG) on the incidence of IEPP associated […]
43/Cardiac tamponade as a complication of transseptal puncture: associations and operatordependent variables during left atrial ablation at Barts Heart Centre
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(Suppl. 1):abstr43
Introduction: Cardiac tamponade is a high morbidity complication of transseptal puncture (TSP). We examined the incidence and predictors of TSP-related cardiac tamponade (TRCT) for all patients undergoing left atrial ablation at our centre from 2016-2020. Methods: Patient and procedural variables were extracted retrospectively. Cases of cardiac tamponade were scrutinised to adjudicate TSP culpability. Adjusted multivariate […]
28/Predictors of pacemaker dependency in patients receiving devices following cardiac surgery
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(Suppl. 1):abstr28
Introduction: Permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation is a well-recognised short-term complication after cardiac surgery; however, in some cases, conduction system function may recover, leaving the patient with an unnecessary device and its associated morbidity. Aims: In order to aid in decision-making process for PPM implantation post cardiac surgery, we sought to determine predictors of pacemaker dependency. […]
