Engineering methods for monitoring the proper localization of muscle and cardial electrodes during cardiomyoplasty operation

  • I. A. Dubrovskii
  • A. N. Ryzhikh


Methods are elaborated for monitoring the localisation of muscle and cardiac electrodes during cardiomyoplasty operation. The necessary operation testing system is devised. The paper presents the results of the monitoring of 42 cardiomyoplasty operations with implantation of Stiminak-805 and EKS-445 electrostimulators.

Key Words
