Disease Sick Sinus Syndrome

Name Sick Sinus Syndrome
Synonyms Dysfunction, Sinus Node | Dysfunctions, Sinus Node | Sick Sinus Node Syndrome | Sinus Node Disease | Sinus Node Diseases | Sinus Node Dysfunction | Syndrome, Sick Sinus
Definition A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.
