Greetings pacemaker friends,
I have had a dual lead Medtronic pacemaker for 8 years(brachardia, low heart rate, fainting). It has worked well. Over the past ten years my ejection fraction has been going down, now at 40%. My cardiologist and pacemaker doctor have reviewed my results(echocardiogram) and have suggested that I have a biventricular pacemaker to help with heart failure and possible increase my ejection fraction. They have scheduled me for a St. Judes bilventricular pacemaker and one new lead(will now be 3 lead).
Anyone have experience with these or have went from a dual to biventricular?
