Abstract

The Symbios 7008 pacemaker is capable of treating both bradycardias and tachycardias. In this report, we summarize operation of the pacemaker and the initial experience in 21 patients who have received implants. All patients have supraventricular tachyarrhythmias that have been terminated successfully with automatic atrial burst pacing (19 patients) or AV sequential pacing. More than half of the patients also have bradyarrhythmias requiring pacing and thus benefit from both functions of the device. Experience to date has been favorable.
