Abstract

Inhibition and/or modulation of cardiac pacemaker function caused by electromagnetic interference (EMI) emitted by the electrosurgical unit (ESU) used during transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) have been described previously. These reports detail the particular problems involved with demand-type pacemakers. In this presentation, we describe a unique case of atrioventricular (A-V) sequential pacemaker interference by cystoscopic electrosurgery.
