A prerequisite is that atrial signals are stable under different conditions. METHODS AND RESULTS A Matlab routine was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the incidence of sinus node disease after pacemaker implantation for exclusive atrioventricular (AV) block. DESIGN 441 patients were followed after VDD (n = 219) or DDD pacemaker (n = 222) implantation for AV block over a mean period of 37 months. Sinus node disease and atrial arrhythmias had been excluded by Holter monitoring and(More)
