Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This report describes two patients who exhibited far-field oversensing of the P wave by the ventricular channel of a DDD biventricular pacemaker implanted for the treatment of congestive heart failure. Oversensing probably occurred secondary to slight displacement of the left ventricular lead in the coronary venous system. Long-term reliable pacing was restored by decreasing the sensitivity of the ventricular channel.
