    Purpose: The EVOCAV trial aimed to quantify the paradoxal atrioventricular (AV) conduction time lengthening in sinus node (SD) patients (pts) paced in AAIR-based pacing mode. Methods: SD pts, implanted with dual-chamber pacemaker programmed in AAIR-based pacing mode, were randomized in two arms...
