While Implanting A Pace Maker Surgeon Punctured My Coronary Sinus What Can Be Consequences From This
Coronary sinus: Not certain of the term as the coronary sinus is the major vein draining the heart. Maybe the term is low atrial rhythm which us not dangerous at all and is a description given when P wave morphology in some leads are inverted. ...Read more
In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...Read more

Oral maxillo-facial surgeon says I cannot ever have an implant for a certain missing molar (no walls). He could do a sinus lift. Is this worthwhile?
I have been told by an oral surgeon that I will need a sinus lift for (implant) an upper molar extracted a year ago. Will there be a lot of discomfort?
With a pacemaker implant and an AV Node ablation, why would you want to pace the atria but not the ventricles?
Been told by surgeon that shoulder cannot get fixed and will lose function of arm due to pacemaker moving and where its placed at moment. What do I do?
I have sinus bradycardia. Dr is recommending pacemaker are there any other alternatives that can be consider?
Only if symptomatic: This depends on the health of the heart, exclusion of any other problems, and presence of symptoms. Healthy, conditioned athletes may have sinus bradycardia while sleeping, sometimes as low as a hr in the 30s! but one key distinction is that the hr increases with exercise. If you have no symptoms, have a normal hr response to exercise, and heart function is nml -- pacer is probably unnecessary. ...Read more
What to do if I have a pacemaker for tachy brady (sick sinus syndrome) What to do if I have had wierd episodes of chest pain headaches,?

Equally lightheaded when I have bradycardia (when sitting or laying down) as when normal sinus rhythm, could I still benefit from a pacemaker?
It depends on the: Nature and severity of your bradycardia. Your description sounds more consistent with hypotension or vertigo. You do not want to have an implanted device at age 30 unless it is absolutely necessary and critical for your life. Even in the best of centers you will be committing to multiple operations and potentially life threatening complications over the remainder of your life expectancy. ...Read more
Hereditary causes of sinus bradycardia? Mine is the most severe requiring a pacemaker, but mother and uncle (not fit) also have bradycardia. Any link?
Yes, could be.:
Asymptomatic sinus bradycardia is often a sign of good physical conditioning.
However, it can be pathologic, symptomatic, and potentially life-threatening.
Unexplained sinus bradycardia is associated with a mutation in the gene (HCN) that encodes the pacemaker channel, the channel responsible for sinus-node activity.
They may need genetic testing. ...Read more
I have an inguinal hernia, I also have a medtronic heart pacemaker for an irregular heart beat. My surgeon said I can't have it removed, is that right?
Just because: You have a pacemaker does not mean you cannot have hernia surgery. But I would need much more information on your heart function, ischemia or not & medications. Your cardiologist can review your heart status & risks for surgery & convey that information to your surgeon to better assess your surgical & anesthesia risks for hernia surgery. ...Read more
My cardiac MRI showed persistent left sided superior vena cava drains into a dilated coronary sinus w/ mild dilation of the main pulmonary artery?
Mostly a normal:
Variant. Every fetus has one, but in most it involutes before birth.
0.3% of the general population has one. It is the most common variation of the thoracic venous system. Left svc draining into coronary sinus is expected 90% of the time.
Discuss with your doctor the significance in your case of the mild dilation of the pulmonary artery. ...Read more

Pacemaker: The coronary arteries are blood vessels and do not have a pacemaker. They react as do all other arteries but not to a pacemaking structure like the sinus node for the heart. ...Read more
If a person has a gallstone will it cause gradual drop in his weigh. Was found out before pacemaker implant. Thank you..
No: No. Gallstones that do not cause pain, nasuea, or vomiting should not cause weight loss. Gallstone that do not cause symptoms generally do not require treatment. ...Read more

My mother in law hd to implant a pacemaker before two months. Is there any chance for the pacemaker to dislocate?
Lead dislocation: Pacemakers generators generally don't move once implanted. The leads however can sometimes move at their contact/attachment to the endocardium. Generally if the leads have been stable for 2-3 weeks, they aren't going to move in the future unless there's some form of traction in the generator pocket such as caused by people 'twiddling' with the generator. ...Read more
No: The main indication of implanting a pacemaker is symptomatic bradyarrhythmia. ...Read more

A pacemaker is a device which sends electrical signals to the heart triggering heartbeats when needed. There are many ways to implant and configure a pacemaker; it may beat the top chambers (atria), lower chambers (ventricles) or both. Some systems stimulate both the left and right ventricles together. Pacemakers generally treat abnormally slow heart rhythms and certain ...Read more
