A 65-year-old man was evaluated for chronic chest pain that had been present for 8 years after placement of a dual-chamber implantable cardioverter-defibrillator to treat inducible ventricular tachycardia. Previous coronary angiography had revealed nonobstructive coronary artery disease and a left ventricular ejection fraction of 0.45 to 0.50, consistent with mild idiopathic nonischemic cardiomyopathy. Evaluation with chest radiography and transthoracic echocardiography showed the implantable…

Histological and anatomical variations of septomarginal trabecula in bovine hearts

There are significant macro‐ and microscopic differences between the bovine septomarginal trabecula concerning their diameter and constituent tissue, and that can lead to possible changes in cardiac physiology.

Morphological Study of the Heart of the Indonesian Short-Nosed Fruit Bat (Cynopterus titthaecheilus)

It was concluded that the heart structure of C. titthaecheilus was very important in supporting their ability to fly.

In 1958, a medical student working in the surgical research laboratory of the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, under the direction of A. Senning who designed the first implantable pacemaker together with R. Elmqvist of ElemaSchonander AB, operated on a 43-year-old man with Stokes-Adams attacks via a left-sided thoractomy.

Morphology of Moderator Bands (Septomarginal Trabecula) in Porcine Heart Ventricles

It is assumed that moderator bands in the right and left ventricles play different primary functional roles, due to different amounts of conductive cells and muscle fibres in the bands.

You have to remember what things were like in those days. When a permanent myocardial pacemaker failed suddenly it was always a disaster because Stokes-Adams seizures would recur. Whichever one of us

On nerves and nerve endings in the conducting system of the moderator band (septomarginal trabecula).

The purpose of the present study is to map the course of the autonomic nerves in and around a part of the conducting system and further to investigate the morphological relation between the nerves and the Purkinje fibres.

There is much glycogen throughout the conduction system, especially in the atrioventricular bundle and Purkinje fibers, which is rich in sarcoplasma and glycogen and poor in myofibrils when compared with ordinary cardiac muscle fibers.
