His-Bundle Pacing Pioneers Share Lessons for Increased Success in a Complex Procedure
BIOTRONIK has today announced a virtual live event series, for implanting cardiologists, kicking off next week. The series will explore the clinical applications of the newest suite of Conduction System Pacing (CSP) tools, released by the company.
The event will be led and chaired by His-bundle pacing pioneers: Dr. Pugazhendhi Vijayaraman, Dr. Francesco Zanon and Prof. Jan Steffel. It is centered on real-life cases and how the different catheter designs can impact procedure outcomes given different patient anatomies.
Despite being regarded the most physiological approach to bradycardia pacing, His-bundle pacing procedures, and their inherent complexities, present increased challenges for implanting physicians. This event is aimed at sharing knowledge from experts who have played an integral role in shaping the discipline into the evolving field it is today.

“It is no secret that His-bundle pacing procedures carry a long and complex learning curve. There has been an increased need for industry to partner with physicians to address current limitations and deliver a solution that was purpose-built and adaptable to how different physicians tackle the complex procedure,” said Dr. Pugazhendhi Vijayaraman from Geisinger Heart Institute, United States.
Dr. Francesco Zanon from Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital, Italy said that the Selectra 3D range of CSP catheters are ideal for supporting procedure success: “I have been performing CSP procedures for years and it became increasingly evident that the shape and sturdiness of catheters, along with more curve choices, play a central role in tackling diverse patient anatomies.”
Participants are encouraged to save the date for the second webinar in the series which will focus on stylet-driven pacing leads in conduction system pacing procedures. It will be held on June 23, further details to follow.
