I was just sat in my living room thinking about pacemakers and I had a thought. Scar tissue caused by myocardial infarction (heart attack) and scar tissue caused by cardiomyopathies can cause electrical impulses that cause potential dangerous arrhythmia. Does anyone know if this is the same as the scar tissue caused by pacemaker leads in the heart?
If this is the case perhaps this could be a cause of some of my NSVT, or other pacemaker patients arrhythmia issues. I believe there could be a different type of scar tissue between these two scenarios, or I could be into something,
I hope someone has any ideas,
