As there was also a hypotensive vasodepressor component to his events, pacemaker placement was reserved for failure of conservative management.
In addition, the severe decrease of heart rate and blood pressure caused by vasodepressor reflex was another question which needs immediate attention [33].
Stimulation of the right insula elicited sympathetic effects like tachycardia and hypertension, while stimulation of the left insula resulted in parasympathetic responses such as bradycardia and vasodepressor effects [28].
With surgical decompression or denervation, the cardioinhibitory and vasodepressor response to compression can be reversed [2, 3].
Fortunately, the syncopal episodes responded to permanent cardiac pacing, supporting the hypothesis that syncope was predominately the result of sinus arrest (cardioinhibitory response), as opposed to dysautonomia-associated hypotension (vasodepressor response), for which the role of cardiac pacing is poorly defined.
Hemodynamic classification was recorded as mixed neurocardiogenic response, vasodepressor, or cardioinhibitory.
Furthermore, EP1 deficient mice showed reduced vasodepressor response to exogenous [PGE.sub.2] administration; a more prolonged reduction in mean arterial pressure to [PGE.sub.2] infusion was displayed in EP3 null mice, although no difference in the magnitude of the depressor response was observed [28, 29].
The syncope may be due to a vasodepressor or cardio-inhibitory type of reflex--the former causing a loss of vasoconstriction and the latter resulting in significant bradycardia or asystole.
