A 54-year-old man presented with total atrioventricular (AV) block 3 months after dynamic cardiomyoplasty was performed because of heart failure due to idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Though the cardiomyostimulator acted as a back-up pacemaker, a DDDR pacemaker was implanted to optimize hemodynamics. During testing no cross-sensing or cross-stimulation between the pacemaker and the cardiomyostimulator was demonstrable. The synchronization delay, however, had to be adjusted.
