  • In order to reduce pacing current threshold in transesophageal stimulation, a novel multi- channel transesophageal pacemaker and multichannel esophageal lead has been developed. Three different approaches to reduce pacing current thres hold were clinically studied. Precise positioning of the pacing dipole allowed reduction of pacing current threshold on average by 20% over the standard bipolar transesophageal method in approximately 50% of patients. Use of a chest electrode lowered pacing… CONTINUE READING
