Clinical Trial Investigator Name: 
Parikshit S. Sharma, MD, MPH
Clinical Trial Protocol Description: 

The goal of this study is to compare the safety, feasibility, accuracy and effectiveness of using electro-anatomic mapping (EAM) for permanent HIS Bundle Pacing (PHBP) procedures to PHBP cases performed without EAM using normal fluoroscopy-guided implant. Eligible patients will be randomly assigned to either EAM or fluoroscopically guided PHBP procedure. Patients will follow up for 3 months following the implant procedure. Approximately 20 participants from Rush University Medical Center will be enrolled into the study. Rush is the only site conducting this study.
