The author summarizes the cases of atrioventricular block with the syndromes of Morgagni-Adams-Stokes treated in the civil hospitals of Genoa. He discusses the methods of stimulation which are used, and underlines the advantages and disadvantages of internal electric stimulation by means of a bipolar catheter, administered transvenously, of the installation of pacemakers with transmission with radiofrequency, and of the installation of interior pacemakers with wires.

In patients with AV block and conduction system disease, alternatives to right ventricular apical pacing are therefore needed

    Several observations and maneuvers in the electrophysiology (EP) laboratory are employed to identify whether retrograde ventriculoatrial conduction is via the atrioventricular (AV) node or an accessory pathway. Parahisian pacing is a unique maneuver where there is no change in the position of...

    Background: Dual-chamber (atrioventricular) and single-chamber (ventricular) pacing are alternative treatment approaches for sinus-node dysfunction that causes clinically significant bradycardia. However, it is unknown which type of pacing results in the better outcome. Methods: We randomly...
