Steroid elution improves the stimulation threshold in an active-fixation atrial permanent pacing lead.
It is believed indeed that both are factors that synergistically determine the stimulation threshold that induces neuronal damage [57].
Background: Atrial AutoCapture™ (ACap™) was a new technological development that confirmed atrial capture by analyzing evoked response (ER) with a new method – paced depolarization integral ER detection – and optimized energy output to changes in the stimulation threshold. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical performance of ACap™ function.
This paradoxical situation is explained by the fact that axons have a lower stimulation threshold than the cell body (40).
The close relationship between TRPA1, TRPV4, and the existence of mechanical hyperalgesia in rats with KOA has been verified, yet whether TRPA1 and TRPV4 levels change according to rat mechanical stimulation threshold levels remained unclear.
We have also shown that striatal neuron firing activity was significantly enhanced in PD rats, and the cortical stimulation threshold to evoke striatal neuron responses and latency were significantly lower than in control rats, which further confirmed that corticostriatal glutamatergic activity was significantly enhanced in PD rats.
A good stimulation threshold of 0.4 volts and a sensitivity of 12 millivolts were obtained intraoperatively and were maintained over a minimum period of 6 months after implantation.
This establishes a stimulation threshold for the adverse effects.
He noted that, while ECT and TMS stimulate neurons in the brain to fire, tDCS changes the stimulation threshold without directly causing the neurons to discharge.

In a recent retrospective study of 2,450 consecutive lumbar pedicle screw placements in 418 patients, tEMG was found to have a specificity of 99.9% and sensitivity of 43.4% when a stimulation threshold of 5.0 mA was used.
