The contributions of long-term cardiac resynchronization as a supplemental treatment of refractory congestive heart failure have recently been reported. Several completed studies support the validity of this new therapy, capable of improving quality of life as well as increasing exercise capacity. These gains hinge on a careful patient selection, on the(More)
INTRODUCTION Progressive cardiac conduction defect (PCCD) is a frequent disease attributed to degeneration and fibrosis of the His bundle. Over the past years, gene defects have been identified demonstrating that PCCD could be a genetic disease. The aim of this study was to show a familial aggregation for PCCD using a genetic epidemiological approach to(More)
In patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome the anterograde conduction properties of the accessory pathway determine the ventricular rate in case of atrial fibrillation (AF). Anterograde conduction in the accessory pathway was evaluated in 20 patients (mean age 31 years) by means of transoesophageal atrial pacing with increasing frequency (up to 460 per(More)
The purpose of this study was to find out whether non-invasive transoesophageal pacing could effectively replace right intra-atrial pacing for the indirect evaluation of sinus node and atrioventricular (AV) node function. In a population of 17 patients the corrected sinus node recovery time (CSRT), the atrio-sinu-atrial conduction time (ASACT) and(More)
