Dear Forum,
I have a question re. anti-tachycardia devices.   Can these pacemakers
be inserted on a trial basis, or permanently, without actually ablating the Sinus/AV Node?   How do they actually work?
Regards,
Kj

Dear kj,
Could you clarify your question a bit.  Are you referring to the use of AV node ablation and pacemaker for rate control for atrial fibrillation?
I hope you find this information useful.  Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only.  Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies.  Please feel free to write back with additional questions.
If you would like to make an appointment at the Cleveland Clinic Heart Center, please call 1-800-CCF-CARE or inquire online by using the Heart Center website at www.ccf.org/heartcenter.  The Heart Center website contains a directory of the cardiology staff that can be used to select the physician best suited to address your cardiac problem.
