Septicemia in patients with an endocardial pacemaker.
The records of 1,235 consecutive patients treated with long-term pacing by the endocardial route between 1964 and 1977 were analyzed to determine the incidence, mechanism, course and treatment of… Expand
Aetiology of chronic heart block. A clinico-pathological correlation in 65 cases.
The cause of chronic heart block is often obscure on clinical grounds alone. Consequently there is considerable difficulty in deciding the prognosis of a patient with complete heart block even with… Expand
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… Expand

The survival rate in 649 patients with chronic atrioventricular block with pacing is compared with that in I13 unpacedpatients and with that in thepopulation ofEngland and Wales matchedfor age and… Expand
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… Expand
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… Expand
THE MANAGEMENT OF HEART BLOCK
In 1952, Zoll described a technique for artificial pacing of the heart. The method employed electrodes placed on the chest wall and electrical impulses of 2 msec. duration at 25-150 volts. Although… Expand

Experience with Implanted Pacemakers: Technical Considerations
Between April 1960 and September 1964, 79 patients were treated with implanted pacemakers. We record here the technical difficulties encountered and the steps taken to overcome them. In all cases the… Expand
