FAILURE OF CARDIAC CONDUCTION STUDIES TO DETECT THE SICK SINUS SYNDROME
- The Provocative Test and Their Diagnostic Value in Sinus Node Failure. Yan He-Chang // Angiology;Aug1984, Vol. 35 Issue 8, p480
Exercise and pharmacologic tests were used for evaluation of the sinus node and S-A function. In all 10 normal persons, the heart rate raised above 90/min without development of cardiac arrhythmia. Among 13 patients with sinus node failure, only 1 had the heart rate raised to 90/min after...
- Implications of 2:1 atrioventricular block during typical atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia. Kazuhiro Suyama; Hideo Okamura; Takashi Noda; Kazuhiro Satomi; Wataru Shimizu; Takashi Kurita; Naohiko Aihara; Shiro Kamakura // Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology;Aug2007, Vol. 19 Issue 2, p109
Abstract ObjectiveÂ Â The effects of 2:1 AV block (AVB) on AV nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) remain to be elucidated. This study was performed to localize the site of 2:1 AVB and elucidate the effects of 2:1 AVB on typical AVNRT. MethodsÂ Â The His bundle (HB) electrograms during...
- Bradycardias and atrioventricular conduction block. Da Costa, David; Brady, William J; Edhouse, June // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);3/2/2002, Vol. 324 Issue 7336, p535
Presents information about bradycardia, a heart rate of greater than 60 beats a minute, which may be a normal phenomenon or result from a cardiac or non-cardiac disorder. Sinus bradycardia; Sick sinus syndrome; Atrioventricular conduction block; Bundle branch block and fascicular block.
- "Sick Sinus Syndrome in Dermatomyositis" -- A Case Report. Badui, Elias // Angiology;Nov1987, Vol. 38 Issue 11, p868
A forty-five-year-old woman with a history of dermatomyositis for the past fifteen years developed sick sinus syndrome during an exacerbation of her illness. This association has not been previously described in the literature, as far as the author can determine.
- Pr!valence and clinical implications of fibrillation episodes detected by pacemaker in patients with sick sinus syndrome. Tse, H. F.; Lou, C. P. // Heart;Mar2005, Vol. 91 Issue 3, p362
The article presents a study where clinical trials have demonstrated that physiologic pacing mode reduces the risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) compared to single chamber ventricular pacing in patients with sick sinus syndrome (SSS). Previous studies have shown that patients with a prior history...

- Supraventricular tachycardia from a left bundle branch block- An unusual presentation of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Wong, Abdul Rahim; Razak, Nabil Abdur; Al-Hadlaq, Saad Mohammad.; Ghulam Rasool, Aida Hanum; Al-Jarallah, Abdullah // Current Pediatric Research;Oct2009, Vol. 13 Issue 1/2, p1
Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) is an electrocardiographic diagnosis based on a short PR interval with the presence of a delta wave, but it can mimic a variety of electrocardiographic conditions. We present a 6 year old Saudi female whose WPW was easily mistaken as a left bundle branch...
- tachybrady syndrome. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2137
A definition of the term "tachybrady syndrome" is presented. It refers to sick sinus syndrome.
- Congenital sick sinus syndrome caused by recessive mutations in the cardiac sodium channel gene (SCN5A). Benson, D. Woodrow; Wang, Dao W.; Dyment, Macaira; Knilans, Timothy K.; Fish, Frank A.; Strieper, Margaret J.; Rhodes, Thomas H.; George Jr., Alfred L.; George, Alfred L Jr // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Oct2003, Vol. 112 Issue 7, p1019
Sick sinus syndrome (SSS) describes an arrhythmia phenotype attributed to sinus node dysfunction and diagnosed by electrocardiographic demonstration of sinus bradycardia or sinus arrest. Although frequently associated with underlying heart disease and seen most often in the elderly, SSS may...
