Conducting System Assessed by his Bundle Electrograms from the Permanent Atrial Electrode at Implantation
His bundle electrograms were recorded from conventional J-shaped atrial electrodes in twelve consecutive patients, at pacemaker implantation for sinus node disorder. Five patients with impairment of atrioventricular conduction, received atrioventricular (DVI) pacemakers. His bundle recording by this method is simple and reliable, avoids the discomfort of the conventional technique, and represents a new application for the well established atrial “J” electrode.
