Biventricular Pacing has been shown an improvement of symptoms in patients with heart failure.

A temporary pacing is necessary in patients after cardiac procedures. In patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a single right ventricular pacing can decrease the cardiac output and blood pressure.

The investigators propose that biventricular pacing in these patients and conditions results in an improvement of symptoms instead of single right pacing.

Condition Intervention

Procedure: additional temporary pacewire
