Abstract

Advanced atrio-ventricular (AV) block during acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is considered a complicating dysrhythmia as the well as mechanism responsible for occurrence of life-threatening hemodynamic changes. Often, simple VVI pacing can result insufficient in improving the decreased cardiac output. VDD pacing, which preserves atrial contribution, should represent the most effective electrical approach; therefore, it requires intracavitary placement of 2 catheters. In 10 pts (6M, 4F, mean age of 63.8 +/- 6.6 years) with advanced AV block due to AMI (4 inferior, 6 anterior) and without sinus node dysfunction, we performed stable VDD stimulation (mean 16.6 +/- 20.6 hours) using only one catheter positioned in the right ventricle while the atrial impulse, filtered (50-70 Hz) and amplified through a special device, was derived from the esophagus. Such technique is rapid and reliable, avoiding problems associated with atrial sensing and catheterization.
