AIMS About 15% of patients with the hypersensitive carotid sinus syndrome (CSS) have no clinical improvement after permanent pacemaker implantation. We aimed to assess the outcome of patients with CSS treated with pacemaker and to determine predictors of symptoms' recurrence. METHODS AND RESULTS A retrospective analysis of 138 patients in whom pacemaker was implanted for CSS was carried out from February 1990 to October 2008. Data were collected from clinical records. Mean age was 69 ± 10.7… CONTINUE READING
