We examined the frequency of side-branch occlusion of the sinus node (SN) artery and of the subsequent sinus arrest in 80 consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for proximal right coronary artery (RCA) lesions. Side-branch occlusion of the SN artery occurred during PCI in 14 (17.5%) patients. Sinus arrest with junctional escape rhythm developed in 4 (28.6%) of these 14 patients. Temporary ventricular pacing was performed for one patient. The junctional… CONTINUE READING
