Abstract

The case of a 83-year-old patient undergoing DDD pacemaker implantation for sick sinus syndrome with postimplant detection of advanced interatrial conduction block is described. At nominal AV interval programming values (175 ms), absence of P wave following an atrial spike was observed, and the presence of an interatrial conduction disturbance was demonstrated by a Doppler transmitral flow pattern analysis and transesophageal ECG recording. AV interval lengthening up to 300 ms resulted in proper timing of atrial and ventricular contractions. Awaiting for conclusive data about biatrial pacing, interatrial conduction blocks can be managed in some cases by proper programming of conventional DDD systems.
