PMID:  11915994     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of severe mitral regurgitation with refractory heart failure, after atrioventricular junction ablation and pacemaker implant, was solved with left ventricular pacing. Mitral regurgitation was related to a change in segmental left ventricular motion during right ventricular pacing.
