ABSTRACT
Stokes�Adams seizure associated with complete heart block that is intractable to medical therapy can best be treated by the implantation of a permanent pacemaker. It has been demonstrated that the preliminary insertion of an intracardiac dipolar catheter electrode is an invaluable adjunct to the technical regimen. The intracardiac dipole is safe and simple to insert. It permits the immediate complete control of any existing critical clinical situation. After insertion and pacing, patients can he ambulated. During the period of time that then elapses Therefore definitive surgery is performed congestive failure and azotemia are relieved, and the patient brought to optimum condition for operation. The subsequent anesthesia and thoracotomy necessary for the implantation of the permanent unit are rendered relatively safe.

However, direct tests of this hypothesis are lacking. Methods: We examined whether hypertension mediated the...
