There is increasing evidence that single site atrial pacing is beneficial for atrial fibrillation (AF) prevention in sick sinus syndrome. Multisite atrial pacing methods such as dual site right atrial pacing and biatrial synchronous pacing are currently under active evaluation for AF and atrial flutter prevention in patients with or without bradyarrhythmias. Clinical studies have demonstrated that multisite atrial pacing has an incremental benefit as compared with single site right and left… CONTINUE READING
