抄録

<b><i>Background:</i></b> After the East Japan Earthquake disaster there may have been a deterioration of patients with cardiovascular diseases. <b><i>Methods and Results:</i></b> We examined the data from 189 consecutive patients implanted with cardiovascular devices for the 6-month period before and after the Earthquake. In 170 patients with defibrillators, the number who experienced tachyarrhythmias increased significantly after the Earthquake (28±5 vs. 34±3 patients/month, P<0.05). In 74 patients with biventricular pacemakers, the number of heart failure hospitalizations significantly increased after the Earthquake (1.2±1.0 vs. 2.7±1.2 patients/month, P<0.05). <b><i>Conclusions:</i></b> The East Japan Earthquake disaster unfavorably affected patients implanted with defibrillators or biventricular pacemakers.
