Actual pacemaker longevity: the benefit of stimulation by automatic capture verification.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We evaluated the impact of an algorithm for automatic right ventricular (RV) stimulation compared to fixed-output pacing (FOP) stimulation on actual pacemaker longevity over a 9-year follow-up. METHODS Prospective observation of 300 patients implanted with VDDR/DDDR pacemakers in 1999-2000 up to October 31, 2008. Sixty-one patients were paced… (More)
