Abstract

Comparison of the effects of atrial, ventricular, and sequential atrioventricular pacing in a group of patients with rheumatic heart disease and in a group with pulmonary emphysema has demonstrated that the absence of synchronized atrioventricular activity rather than aberrant ventricular depolarization is primarily responsible for the hemodynamic difference between atrial and ventricular pacing.
