Implications of marked fatty infiltration around and in the atrophic atrioventricular node in elderly patients with permanent pacemaker implantation for symptomatic sick sinus syndrome.


The present study undertook an extensive analysis of the histopathological findings of the atrioventricular conduction system in 14 elderly patients treated with permanent pacemakers for sick sinus syndrome (SSS). Special attention was given to the lowest Wenckebach block points of atrioventricular conduction during rapid atrial pacing, and ventricular rate… (More)
