The use of non-thoracotomy endocardial implantable defibrillation with pacing capabilities has increased substantially over the past 2 years. This report demonstrates that the pacing threshold increases in some patients after endocardial defibrillation, and substantiates the practice of using maximal pacing output after endocardial defibrillation.
