Total AV block- Looking at Medtronic Micra AV,
I'm a 36yr old father of 3, and I've known about my total AV block (as diagnosed at least) since I was 18. My resting hr has steadily been dropping from the high 40's in my late teens to the high 30's now. My maximal hr is about 130, and I can maintain steady exercise in a relatively normal fashion.
I've put off a pm due to the length of time I am likely to need one. I'm still asymptomatic (at least for any dramatic symptoms like passing out, I may be suffering symptoms I am unaware of). Increasingly, I am concerned about what happens WHEN I become symptomatic and I pass out, since I could be behind then wheel, etc. As a result, I'm getting the pm this summer.
My doc has suggested the recently approved Medtronic AV for me.
Does anybody have any input/experience that may be worth considering? Thank you very much for anything you can add.
