Managed Ventricular Pacing
Second opinion from you super informed people.
I have MVP active and have a combination of 2:1 heart block, Wenkebach (longer and longer AV gaps leading to a loss of a Ventricular beat) and a PR interval as long as 400ms.
Medtronic state the following:
MVP does not wait until the next A-event to detect loss of AV conduction (it learns the patient’s conduction to best adapt to it, similar to Search AV+). If the V-sense is late, relative to recent AV conducted events, MVP will pace the atrium and then pace the ventricle with a PAV of 80 ms. The atrial pace provides AV synchrony to be maintained and prevents retrograde conducted events. This MVP enhancement reduces the V-V length following AV block or PVCs.
I am surprisingly V pacing 86% of the time.
Would you say that it is likely that my combination of heart block issues/features means MVP is not really working for me. MVP is specifically designed to reduce ventricular pacing but it is clearly not working or does it take many months for it to settle in?
Anyone else have MVP active and have success with it in the long run?
