Practical approach makes new ESC cardiac pacing and resynchronization guidelines accessible to all
Date:6/24/2013

Athens-- The 2013 ESC Guidelines on Cardiac Pacing and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy developed in collaboration with the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), have created a new classification system for bradyarrhythmias according to mechanisms rather than aetiology. The guidelines, presented at the EHRA EUROPACE meeting 23-26 June in Athens, Greece, and published simultaneously in the European Heart Journal and Europace, have been redesigned to offer a more accessible format for users.

The 2013 guidelines, revised for the first time since 2007, were developed with input from 70 clinicians, including an expert Task Force of 18 cardiologists specializing in cardiac pacing and resynchronization, a further 26 experts in the field who reviewed the document, with the entire process overseen by the ESC Committee for Practice Guidelines (CPG).

The first part of the guidelines explores indications for pacing in patients who have cardiac arrhythmias. The second part looks at indications for cardiac resynchronization therapy in heart failure. The third part includes indications for pacing in specific conditions, such as acute MI, pacing after cardiac surgery, TAVI and heart transplantation, and pacing in children and individuals with congenital heart diseases. Finally, the guidelines explore management considerations such as re implantation after device explanation for infection, magnet
