  • BACKGROUND This prospective study was to examine the impact of right ventricular apical (RVA) pacing on atrial remodeling and function. METHODS AND RESULTS 103 patients (age 70 ± 11 years; 53 men) with preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (LVEF>45%) who received RVA pacing had Doppler echocardiography performed at baseline and after one year follow up. At one year follow up, left atrial (LA) volumes (pre-atrial contraction volume and the minimal volume) and their indexes were… CONTINUE READING
