Abstract

In an attempt to prevent recurrent reentrant supraventricular tachycardia, an experimentally designed new pacemaker has been developed. The pacemaker, when connected to both atrial and ventricular electrodes, is capable of sensing either an atrial or ventricular signal and, in turn, triggers simultaneous atrioventricular (A-V) stimulation. Efficacy of this pacemaker was tested in four patients with recurrent paroxysmal A-V nodal reentrant tachycardia during electrpphysiologic studies. After connection of the electrodes to the new pacemaker, all atrial or ventricular premature stimuli elicited simultaneous A-V stimulation with resultant impulse collision in the A-V junction. Consequently, the reentrant tachycardia zone was completely abolished in all patients. This study has thus demonstrated the clinical feasibility of simultaneous A-V pacing to abolish the supraventricular tachycardia zone in man.
