The Use of Coronary Sinus Pacing
Permanent atrial pacing from the coronary sinus has been used since 1958 (1–5) and has been shown to provide better cardiovascular function. (6’9). This is a report of our experience with this method of 66 consecutive patients. A special lead was used with a flexible tip extending beyond the distal electrode to prevent dislodgement from the coronary sinus during inspiration (Fig. 1 ).
