Tricuspid Regurgitation Study


About this study

The effect of cardiac pacing leads on tricuspid regurgitation is unclear. This study will determine whether using a smaller diameter leads and an alternate position in the ventricle, the proximal septum, will reduce tricuspid regurgitation than larger leads placed in the apex.
