To investigate whether the preservation of atrioventricular (AV) synchronization matters for quality-of-life during pacemaker treatment we assessed 17 consecutive patients with high degree AV block and preserved sinus node function in a double-blind, long-term crossover study. A questionnaire with regard to cardiovascular symptoms, sleep disturbances… CONTINUE READING
