BACKGROUND Pacing the right ventricle is established practice, but there remains controversy as to the optimal site to preserve hemodynamic function. AIMS To evaluate clinical and hemodynamic differences between apical and septal pacing in pacemaker-dependent patients. METHODS Patients receiving their first pacemaker for advanced atrioventricular block, with the atria in sinus rhythm, were randomized to receive apical (Group A) or septal (Group S) ventricular leads. After implant, with the… CONTINUE READING
