BACKGROUND Symptomatic prolonged sinus pauses on termination of atrial fibrillation (AF) are an indication for pacemaker implantation. We evaluated sinus node function and clinical outcome in patients with prolonged sinus pauses on termination of arrhythmia who underwent ablation of paroxysmal AF. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty patients with paroxysmal AF and prolonged sinus pauses (> or =3 seconds) on termination of AF underwent ablation between May 1995 and November 2002. Patients with sinus… CONTINUE READING
