|Title:||Dual chamber versus single chamber ventricular pacemakers for sick sinus syndrome and atrioventricular block.|
|Citation:||COCHRANE DATABASE SYST REV, 2004 (2), pp. CD003710-CD003710|
|Abstract:||Dual chamber pacing or single chamber atrial pacing ('physiologic' pacing) is believed to have an advantage over single chamber ventricular pacing in that it resembles cardiac physiology more closely by maintaining atrioventricular (AV) synchrony and dominance of the sinus node, which in turn may reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality thus contributing to patient survival and quality of life. However, a significant proportion of pacemakers currently implanted are single chamber ventricular pacemakers.|
