Pacing and atrioventricular block.

Author information

  • 1Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Ohio.


Over the past year, many studies have reported progress in cardiac pacing. Better understanding of the cardiovascular and neuroendocrinologic physiology and sophisticated technologic advances have contributed to the development of new therapeutic approaches. In this review, we discuss the relevant literature on temporary pacing, physiologic mechanisms involved during pacing, the importance of atrioventricular synchrony and rate responsiveness, recent technologic advances, interactions between pacemakers and defibrillators, and reports on therapy. In the field of atrioventricular block, emphasis is on the characterization of new causes and clinical presentation in special populations.
