INTRODUCTION Recent acute studies demonstrated that atrioventricular (AV) node vagal stimulation during atrial fibrillation (AF) decreases the mean ventricular rate, thus improving hemodynamics. METHODS AND RESULTS We report a case of a woman with acute heart failure (HF), chronic AF with untreatable ventricular rapid response, in severe hypotensive state due to a cardiogenic shock. The patient underwent left ventricular (LV) pacemaker implantation and received 50 Hz AV node stimulation… CONTINUE READING
