Full analysis of the incidence of sudden unexplained death shows it to be no more common when fixed rate pacemakers compete with inherent beats than in the absence of competition.
Deep vein thrombosis after thoracotomy.
In a prospective study of 183 patients undergoing lateral thoracotomy the 125 I fibrinogen uptake test and perioperative heparin prophylaxis for deep-vein thrombosis were investigated. There was an…
Prediction of battery depletion in implanted pacemakers
By the use of a measuring oscilloscope and the standard electrocardiogram limb leads the degree of battery depletion in an implanted pacemaker can be estimated. A formula based on readings obtained…

Surgical complications of implanting pacemakers
An analysis of the complications of implanting pacemakers at St George's Hospital between 1967 and 1973 highlights the difficulties of implanting foreign bodies. During this 7 years 1543 pacemakers…
LONG-TERM ENDOCARDIAL PACING FOR HEART-BLOCK.
THE MANAGEMENT OF HEART BLOCK
Syncope from cessation of the heartbeat is exceptional when the ECG between attacks shows no conduction defect, and continuous monitoring to determine the rhythm during an attack is usually impractical.
Aetiology of chronic heart block. A clinico-pathological correlation in 65 cases.
A retrospective survey was carried out in 65 consecutive patients with chronic heart block who had come to necropsy during the past 3 years in an effort to improve the clinical diagnosis of the underlying cause of heart block.
Experience with Implanted Pacemakers: Technical Considerations
Between April 1960 and September 1964, 79 patients were treated with implanted pacemakers and it has proved necessary to modify the apparatus as faults revealed themselves during clinical use.
