Curtis: Study Shows Dual Chamber Pacing Leads to Better Outcomes

Updated May 19, 2016

Research by Anne B. Curtis, MD, Charles and Mary Bauer Professor and chair of the Department of Medicine, and colleagues found improved clinical outcomes and quality of life from biventricular pacing in cardiac resynchronization therapy.

“For patients with atrioventricular block and systolic dysfunction, biventricular pacing not only reduces the risk of mortality/morbidity, but also leads to better clinical outcomes, including improved quality of life and heart failure status, compared with RV pacing,” they wrote.
