The history of electric cardiac stimulation is long and
fascinating. The grow- ing clinical importance has been recognized
and renewed as Zoll in 1952 described a successful resusciation in
cardiac standstill by external stimula- tion. Meanwhile, patients
with disorders of cardiac rhythm have been treated all over the
world for about 15 years. Recently the technical refinements of
intracardiac stimulation in combination with a subtile analysis of
endocavi- tary electrocardiograms improv~d the understanding of
human intracardiac conduction. These new procedures include the
possibility to study the initia- tion and termination of
tachycardias. - The pertinent interest in these devel- opments and
the intention to learn more about the basic fundamentals of
excitability and conduction under both normal and pathological
circum- stances were reasons to organize an international symposium
on that topic. - The papers contained in this book were presented
at this meeting on diagnos- tic and therapeutical tools of cardiac
pacing, held at Munich on November 7 and 8, 1975, sponsored by the
first Medical Clinic of the University of Munich and generously
supported by Medtronic. Especially focused are the investigations
on sinus node function, disturbances of av-conduction and
electrophysiology of supraventricular and ventricular tachycardias.
The content of the book that is emerging from the symposium were
created by the authors. I wish to thank them for teaching us about
the recent advances in cardiac tissue stimulation by electricity.
Much credit is due Priv. Doz. Dr. B. Uideritz, who organized the
symposium and published these proceedings.
