Abstract

A case of an infant, following surgical repair for double outlet right ventricle, who developed low cardiac output syndrome and complete heart block that required insertion of a pacemaker is presented. The infant underwent optimization of his ventricular function to determine whether pacing the right ventricle or left ventricle or both would improve cardiac function. Using standard two-dimensional echocardiography and Doppler imaging, tissue synchronization imaging, and two-dimensional speckle-tracking strain analysis, improvement in cardiac output and function was demonstrated. The present case highlights the usefulness of newer echocardiographic techniques in pacemaker optimization in the acute postoperative setting. ©2010 Pulsus Group Inc. All rights reserved.
