OBJECTIVES Speckle-tracking strain analysis was used to assess the effects of permanent right ventricular (RV) pacing on the heterogeneity in timing of regional wall strain and left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony. BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown detrimental effects of RV pacing, possibly related to the induction of LV dyssynchrony. METHODS Fifty-eight patients treated with His bundle ablation and pacemaker implantation were studied. To assess the effect of RV pacing on time-to-peak… CONTINUE READING
