Right atrial isolation: a new surgical treatment for supraventricular tachycardia. II. Hemodynamic effects.

Abstract

Surgical isolation of the body of the right atrium presents a unique hemodynamic situation in which the synchronous right atrial contraction (kick) is lost but the synchronous left atrial contraction is preserved. The hemodynamic effects of this procedure were evaluated by pacing at selected atrial sites postoperatively to simulate (1) sinus rhythm with a… (More)
