OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to assess long-term global left ventricular (LV) function in patients paced from the right ventricular (RV) apex at a young age. BACKGROUND Ventricular contraction asynchrony with short-term RV apical pacing has been associated with reduced LV pump function and relaxation. The long-term effect of RV apical pacing on global LV function in the young remains unknown. METHODS Twenty-four patients with normal segmental anatomy paced from the RV apex (follow… CONTINUE READING
