The site of atrial pacing influences atrial activation patterns. It is believed that disparities in atrial activation and repolarization are contributors to the development and recurrence of atrial arrhythmias. We hypothesized that pacing from Bachmann's Bundle would improve clinical outcomes in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation compared to right atrial appendage pacing. Pacing from Bachmann's Bundle results in a significant reduction in P wave duration and improvement in biatrial… CONTINUE READING
