  • It is established that, for patients with atrioventricuiar block and intact sinus node function, optimal "physiological" pacing is provided by the VDD (atrial-triggered ventricular-inhibited ventricular pacing) mode. The main limiting factor to the use of this mode has been the complexity of the implantation procedure associated with the additional atrial lead. For many years attempts have been made to develop a single lead system with atrial and ventricular electrodes providing reliable VDD… CONTINUE READING
