About this book


Developments in the electrical treatment of arrhythmias have been so fast over the last few years that access to available, state-of-the-art knowledge has become a major challenge. The proceedings of scientific meetings are therefore most helpful in this regard.
This volume provides highlights of many of the recent and most important technological advances and concepts in cardiac electrotherapy, written by the most prominent figures in the field, for the internists, clinical cardiologists and cardiologists who are practising in arrhythmias and antiarrhythmic therapy.
The book is divided into five parts, each focusing on an exciting group of topics. Part One is a highlight of some of the hit points in arrhythmology. Part Two is a quick reference to the current concepts in non-invasive electrocardiology. Part Three, cardiac pacing, is enhanced by the introductory chapter of S. Furman, which gives the state-of-the-art in electrical cardiac stimulation for 1995. This part also reviews the technical advances, new perspectives in the indications of cardiac pacing, as well as the management of complications. Radiofrequency ablation as a challenging antiarrhythmic therapeutic strategy is thoroughly reviewed and the hottest topics are highlighted in Part Four. Part Five is dedicated to implantable cardioverter-defibrillators with several exciting topics, including driving with implantable devices.
