Ventricular pacing in the presence of tricuspid valve disease.

PMID:  11915977     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pacemaker implantation following tricuspid valve surgery remains challenging, but recent developments in lead technology have significantly improved the options for ventricular pacing. In the presence of significant tricuspid regurgitation, steroid-eluting active-fixation leads should be used routinely, and in patients with a tricuspid prosthesis, the use of a dedicated cardiac venous pacing system is likely to be the best option.
