Permanent pacemaker implantation is one of the most common arrhythmological procedure. This procedure is usually accompanied by a minimum of 2-3 days hospitalization, with immobilization of patients (supine) for 16-24 hours. The optimal duration of patient´s immobilization is not determined. There is also no recommendation from individual manufacturers of pacemakers for the duration of immobilization after pacemaker implantation. The length of immobilization is based rather on the tradition established at the time of using electrodes with passive fixation. The aim of our prospective, randomized study (EMAPI) is to compare the safety of short-term (4-hours) immobilization with long-term (16-24 hours) immobilization after primary pacemaker implantation. Septal position will be used for right ventricular electrode.

We describe an unusual cause of intermittent rapid ventricular paced rhythm in a patient implanted with a dual chamber pacemaker due to sinus node dysfunction after heart transplantation. During impla...
Leadless pacemaker implantation rates are increasing worldwide. Until now leadless pacemaker dislocation and extraction has been rarely reported.
Damage to the cardiac conduction system requiring permanent pacemaker implantation is a complication of aortic valve replacement (AVR) that may importantly affect quality of life. We investigated prev...
A common complication of TAVR is development of conduction defects requiring pacemaker (PPM) implantation. These defects are not universally permanent.
Left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction leading to heart failure (HF) is known to occur after permanent pacemaker implantation (PPI) in a subset of patients. They are often treated by upgradation o...
Regulation of the rate of contraction of the heart muscles by an artificial pacemaker.
A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).
A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.
A cardiac arrhythmia that is caused by interaction of two independently initiated cardiac impulses of different rates from two separate foci. Generally one focus is the SINOATRIAL NODE, the normal pacemaker. The ectopic focus is usually in the HEART VENTRICLE but can be in the HEART ATRIUM or the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. Modulation of the parasystolic rhythm by the sinus rhythm depends on the completeness of entrance block surrounding the parasystolic focus.
