Cardiac arrhythmias and failure following lung resection in patients treated and untreated with digitalis prophylaxis have been evaluated. In 82 patients without digitalis (1st group) 11% tachyarrhythmias and 5.7% cardiac failures were noted. In 100 patients treated with digitalis (2nd group) 7% arrhythmias and no cardiac failures were registered. Among cardiac complications only one death in the first group was observed. The mean period of incidence of arrhythmias appears dilated in the digitalis group (3rd vs. 5th postoperative day) and this could be attributed to the early suspension of the drug.
