Periprocedural cardiac troponin elevation: a potential indicator of enhanced ventricular threshold in permanent pacemaker recipients

Abstract

Background and aim: Permanent cardiac pacing is the most efficient treatment for patients with symptomatic bradycardia and high-degree atrioventricular (AV) block. For effective pacing, sensing and pacemaker battery longevity; ventricular pacing threshold (VPT) levels, lead impedance levels and Rwave amplitude levels must be desirable. We aimed to search… (More)
