JAMA. 1977;237(21):2320-2321. doi:10.1001/jama.1977.03270480060022

In two cases of hyperactive carotid sinus with syncope, both patients had a history of syncopal attacks. Carotid sinus massage produced asystole lasting for four seconds with recurrent symptoms. Permanent demand pacemakers were implanted in both patients, causing a relief of symptoms.
