Implanting a biventricular pacemaker
The implantation of a biventricular pacemaker is similar to that of a standard pacemaker, but with a few twists. One of the wires must stimulate a particular spot on the outside of the left ventricle. Getting it there can sometimes be a challenge. If you need a biventricular pacemaker, try to find a doctor who has implanted many of them, and who is part of a team that offers complete cardiovascular care.
