Cardiac pacing, 1960-1985: a quarter century of medical and industrial innovation.

One important aspect of the broader transformation of cardiovascular medicine: the development of pacemaker technology to treat bradyarrhythmias is discussed, particularly in the sources of innovation in pacing, a field known for rapid shifts in hardware and techniques.

Cardiac pacing: from biological to electronic ... to biological?

The history of the disease process being treated, approaches now in progress, and the demands that must be met if biological therapies are to be successful are reviewed.

Today's implantable pacemaker owes its existence to the invention and refinement of external pacing devices that began in the 1920s, as well as to several coincidental developments in such diverse fields as cardiovascular surgery, electrical engineering, polymer chemistry, and public policy.

The Effects Of Right Ventricular Apical Pacing On Left Ventricular Function. Stimulation Of The Right Ventricular Apex: Should It Still Be The Gold Standard?

The aim of this review article is to discuss the effect of right ventricular apical pacing on cardiac function including cellular and hemodynamic changes and the role of alternative pacing sites in the light of cardiac function.

Basic science for the clinical electrophysiologist

The basic mechanisms of arrhythmia are reviewed as are the mechanisms of atrial fibrillation, which are an excellent refresher for practicing cardiac electrophysiologists as well as a helpful resource for residents and fellows.

A recent pig model of heart block suggests that the injection of a vector carrying TBX18 induces physiologically relevant pacemaker activity for 11 days.

Auswirkung von Schrittmachersonden mit aktiver und passiver Fixierung auf die Freisetzung von high-sensitive Troponin T

Bisher gibt es keine belastbaren Daten daruber, ob Schrittmachersonden, die zur Fixierung im Myokard einen Schraubmechanismus (aktive Fixierung) verwenden, oder Sonden, bei denen die Fixierung durch
