OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was twofold: to assess whether biatrial pacing is superior to single-site pacing and capable of reducing the frequency of episodes of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF); and to compare pacing of the proximal coronary sinus (PCS) with the distal coronary sinus (DCS) and the effects of sequential or simultaneous biatrial pacing. BACKGROUND Interatrial conduction abnormalities have a role in the initiation of PAF. Biatrial pacing alters the site and timing… CONTINUE READING
