Sample text

The acute hemodynamic effects of dual-chamber pacing may be quite dramatic, with a major reduction in left ventricular cavity obliteration and a concomitant decrease in left ventricular outflow tract gradient (Fig. 16). 21 The mechanism of the beneficial effects of pacing is incompletely understood and the population who would most reliably benefit has not been fully elucidated. 16. Tracings show reduction of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction after chronic dual-chamber pacing. Left panel: At baseline, the left ventricular systolic pressure and left ventricular outflow gradient were 180 mm Hg and 90 mm Hg, respectively.

The endocarditis generally involves the non-coronary cusp of the aortic 41 CARDIAC PACING AND ICDS valve. 56 Although these studies are retrospective, the patient with development of new AV block or BBB, especially in the setting of aortic valve endocarditis, should probably undergo temporary pacing while cardiac evaluation continues. Treatment of tumors of the head and/or neck or around the carotid sinus may in some circumstances give rise to high-grade AV block. Temporary pacing may be required during surgical treatment, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy.

BBB or fascicular block known to exist before acute myocardial infarction PACING DURING CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION During catheterization of the right side of the heart, manipulation of the catheter may induce a transient RBBB in up to 10% of patients. This block generally lasts for seconds or minutes but can occasionally last for hours or days. Trauma induced by right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy also may result in temporary, or rarely long-lasting, RBBB. This is a problem only in patients with preexisting LBBB, in whom complete heart block may result.
