Compares clinical experience with the use of epicardial and transvenous pacemakers for the treatment of chronic heart block and Adams-Stokes attack. Complications that occurred with epicardial pacemakers; Results of follow-up studies on patients with transvenous pacemakers; Increasing preference of the permanent transvenous pacemaker for the treatment of chronic heart block and Adams-Stokes disease.

    The transvenous system of permanent pacemaking is both simple and safe and is recommended, especially for older patients. The standby (demand) pacemaker functions in all types of symptomatic bradycardia, virtually eliminating the danger of competitive pacing, and is, therefore, recommended in...

    Postmortem examination revealed a severe Ebstein's anomaly in a 66 year old woman with Stokes-Adams syndrome associated with complete heart block and fatal ventricular arrhythmias. Inability to pace the ventricle effectively was probably related to the bizarre deformity of the tricuspid valve...
