Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The ability to record electrograms directly from the atria and to pace the atria and/or ventricles provides an effective, rapid, easy, and remarkably safe way to treat most disorders of rhythm and conduction in patients during and following open heart surgery. This article reviews various applications of those techniques.
