Right ventricular (RV) pacing-induced cardiomyopathy (PICM) is typically defined as left ventricular systolic dysfunction resulting from electrical and mechanical dyssynchrony caused by RV pacing. RV PICM is common, occurring in 10-20% of individuals exposed to frequent RV pacing. Multiple risk factors for PICM have been identified, including male sex, wider native and paced QRS durations, and higher RV pacing percentage, but the ability to predict which individuals will develop PICM remains modest. Biventricular and conduction system pacing, which better preserve electrical and mechanical synchrony, typically prevent the development of PICM and reverse left ventricular systolic dysfunction after PICM has occurred.
