Abstract AIMS: Electrical stimulation [coupled pacing (CP)] applied near the end of the T-wave is able to create a retrograde activation of the atrioventricular (AV) node in turn to prevent rapid ventricular conduction during atrial fibrillation (AF). The impact of this pacing modality associated with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been evaluated in the present experimental study. METHODS AND RESULTS: After inducing AF by rapid pacing in six dogs, we applied the following pacing modalities: rapid right ventricular (RV) pacing, rapid CRT, CRT with an additional RV paced beat (C

Abstract PURPOSE: Recent studies have demonstrated that ventricular rate control is a viable treatment strategy for patients in atrial fibrillation (AF). The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not the benefits of coupled pacing (ie, a proposed rate control therapy) could be used during persistent AF. DESCRIPTION: Six mongrel dogs were chronically implanted with endocardial atrial and ventricular pacemaker leads and two standard dual-chamber pacemakers. With the use of two custom "Y"-lead adapters, the pacemakers were used to induce AF and to apply coupled pacing. Left ventri
