HIS bundle pacing is an alternative to traditional cardiac pacing technique that involves placing the pacemaker lead directly on the bundle of His, a specialized conduction pathway in the heart's electrical system, to achieve synchronized heart rhythm. Traditional right ventricular pacing can lead to pacing-induced cardiomyopathy, a condition where the heart muscle weakens due to prolonged pacing. HIS bundle pacing can reduce the risk of this complication.
It is typically used to treat patients with heart block, a condition where the electrical signals from the atria are delayed or blocked before reaching the ventricles. It can also be used in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction, where traditional pacing techniques may not be effective.
His bundle pacing is a relatively new technique, that not many have the expertise to perform the procedure.
