Ventricular dyssynchrony induced by ventricular pacing (VP) may predispose patients to congestive heart failure. The detrimental effects of VP are directly related to the cumulative percentage of VP (Cum%VP). Managed VP (MVP) is a novel pacing algorithm developed to minimize unnecessary VP by uncoupling atrial pacing from VP. This retrospective analysis assessed the feasibility of using MVP in pediatric patients and patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). A multicenter review evaluated… CONTINUE READING
