The effect of right ventricular apical and non-apical pacing on the short- and long-term changes in left ventricular ejection fraction: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized-controlled trials

Hussain, Mohammad Akhtar; Furuya-Kanamori, Luis; Kaye, Gerald; Clark, Justin; Doi, Suhail A. R.


BACKGROUND The right ventricular apex (RVA) is the traditional lead site for chronic pacing but in some patients may cause impaired left ventricular (LV) systolic function over time. Comparisons with non-apical (RVNA) pacing sites have generated inconsistent results and recent meta-analyses have demonstrated unclear benefit due to heterogeneity across studies. METHODS AND RESULTS A systematic search for randomized controlled trials that compared LVEF outcomes between RVNA and RVA pacing was...[Show more]
