Pacing in a patient with Ebstein's anomaly

Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE
C AndersenP Justesen


We report a case of Ebstein's anomaly in which ventricular pacing was achieved by positioning a pacing lead in the enlarged right atrium. By placing the electrode in the atrialization of the right ventricle, an aggravation of tricuspid regurgitation that may result from catheter displacement of the valve leaflets is avoided.

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
