In a patient who had a biventricular bypass heterotopic cardiac homograft a double atrial-triggered standby pacemaker system was Implanted to allow sequential atrial pacing of both hearts. The system design permitted either the recipient or the donor heart to dictate the rate of its fellow, depending on which heart had the faster spontaneous sinus rate at any time. Alternative methods for achieving sequential pacing are discussed.
