  author={Rona Reibis and Hans Joachim Bondke and Gert Baumann}
The development of biatrial pacing has led to an improvement of tachyarrhythmia prevention. It is reported that pacing providing an atrial contribution (AAI/DDD mode) and rate normalization in sick sinus syndrome, particularly the bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome, has an antiarrhythmic effect on atrial fibrillation [4-7]. These investigations favored studies on biatrial pacing. In 1972, Dayem and co-workers [1] described the connection between interatrial conduction disorders and atrial… CONTINUE READING
