Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Thanks for the question.
I will be happy to help.
There is no indication for a pacemaker.
You don't have a 2nd or 3rd degree heart block.
Afib by itself is not an indication for a pace maker.
An option would be ablation of the a fib focus.
In some cases, the av node is ablated [when everything else doesn't work] and then a pacemaker is required.
