Purpose of reviewIt has been nearly 2 decades since His bundle pacing (HBP) was described and with very first randomized pilot study published, reviewing its impact on clinical practice is inevitable.Recent findingsInclusion of HBP in the guidelines, along with long-term outcomes, outcomes comparing selective and non selective HBP and investigator initiated randomized pilot comparing with cardiac resynchronization therapy, HBP has established itself as a feasible pacing alternative.SummaryHBP is an addition to the current armada of resynchronization techniques. HBP is an emerging area of interest, and is particularly relevant in patients, who require chronic ventricular pacing, but the long-term outcomes of this approach in large patient populations with low ejection fraction are still lacking. With several ongoing studies, in the near future we will have good-quality evidence to support native conduction system pacing as a viable alternative to improve meaningful outcomes.
