OBJECTIVE Effects of pacing-induced tachycardia on left ventricular function have been studied extensively. However, little attention has been focused on aortic elastic properties during heart rate increments. The aim was to determine the effects of right ventricular pacing on the aortic elastic properties. METHODS We studied 14 normal subjects (baseline… CONTINUE READING
