  Purpose

Patients with pacemakers often have undiagnosed heart muscle weakness. When a pacemaker battery has run down, it is easily replaced by a short procedure. In those with heart muscle weakness, who use their pacemaker most of the time (rather than acting just as a back-up) the investigators want to find out if adding a further lead to their pacemaker system improves their heart's function, kidney function and exercise capacity.
