Sample text

Similarly, second-degree and even third-degree AV block after inferior wall myocardial infarction is usually reversible and rarely requires permanent pacing. In contrast, conduction defects after an anterior wall myocardial infarction usually warrant permanent pacemaker insertion, although mortality remains extremely high because of pump failure (Fig. 18). The indications for permanent pacing following acute myocardial infarction are: Class I 1. Persistent second-degree AV block in the His-Purkinje system with bundle branch block or third-degree AV block within or below the His-Purkinje system after acute myocardial infarction.

Permanent Pacemaker Mode Selection The selection of a permanent pacing mode for any given patient is largely based on the desire to maintain AV synchrony. Intuitively, the preservation of AV synchrony may seem desirable in all patients. However, the added cost and complexity of dual-chamber systems and the contradictory data concerning the benefits of AV sequential pacing for some patient groups are all a basis for the ongoing evaluation of the true advantages to dual-chamber pacing. It is generally accepted that AV synchrony may benefit patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction, diastolic dysfunction, or heart failure by preserving the atrial 31 CARDIAC PACING AND ICDS contribution to ventricular filling.
