The electrocardiogram may be useful in evaluating patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy and in particular may help to determine the site of left ventricular pacing and whether a patient is likely to respond to cardiac resynchronization therapy. Other electrocardiographic features of a wide variety of pacing algorithms are discussed. Knowledge of these specific pacing algorithms may avoid unnecessary evaluation for pacing system malfunction. Many of these algorithms are carefully described in the manufacturers' manuals. © 2014 Elsevier Inc. Source

Compared with medical therapy, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with higher bleeding rates and more vascular complications. Although the rate of complications is decreasing, female sex continues to be an independent risk factor. Radial access for PCI is as effective as femoral access but is associated with significantly fewer bleeding and vascular complications. Although women are at higher risk for bleeding and vascular complications than their male counterparts, the use of radial access has decreased the complications to a level in the which the difference becomes minimal. More quality improvement studies are needed to identify strategies for reducing complications in this high-risk population. © 2012 Elsevier Inc. Source
