However, general trends could be observed: the lower the interventricular conduction delay, the lower the optimal AV delay. With respect to VV delay setting, a general rule cannot be determined.
Achieving an optimized AV delay adjusts the contraction sequence between the left atrium and the left ventricle to optimize left ventricular filling without truncating atrial contribution.
When ventricular (VVI) pacing was instituted in a patient with complete heart block, a gradient reduction of 56% was noted (AV delay was 0 ms) (17).
For example in patient with AAI/R PMK previously implanted for sick sinus syndrome we can observe AV delays when the atrial rate is increased by rate responsive function.
