    The article presents the case of a 8-year-old man with atypical chest pain. The patient had received a dual-chamber pacemaker four years before due to sick sinus syndrome. Electrocardiography of the patient showed a pattern of depolarization resembling that associated with right bundle-branch...

    Persistent left superior vena cava occurs in approximately 0.5% of the population. This may complicate pacemaker implantation by making lead insertion difficult and causing lead instability through the left cephalic vein and the subclavian vein approach. We used a wide loop technique in the...

    The article offers a study relating to life threatening complication of a migrating intra-peritoneal pacemaker generator. It states that typical complications relating to migrating intra-peritoneal pacemaker generator are exhaustion of the batteries, fracture of the leads, and dislocation of the...

    The transvenous system of permanent pacemaking is both simple and safe and is recommended, especially for older patients. The standby (demand) pacemaker functions in all types of symptomatic bradycardia, virtually eliminating the danger of competitive pacing, and is, therefore, recommended in...

    In this report, we describe our initial experience with a new rate-responsive TX pacemaker in 10 patients. This pacemaker system uses a conventional transvenous ventricular electrode, which senses the evoked QT interval after a ventricular paced beat, as an indicator of physiological metabolic...

    Background: A pacemaker (PM) and implantable cardioverter–defibrillator (ICD) survey was undertaken in Australia (Au) and New Zealand (NZ) for 2005. Results and Conclusions: Compared to the 2001 survey, significant increases in implantation numbers were recorded. For 2005, the total new...
