The Dynamics of the Heart in Complete A-V Block
An Angiocardiographic Study
The conduction disturbances in atrioventricular block are well known from numerous electrocardiographic studies, but the effect on the heart work, especially on the individual chambers, could not be recorded before the introduction of visualization of the heart chambers by angiocardiography. Rapid biplane angiocardiography with simultaneous electrocardiographic yields information on cardiac dynamics not available by procedures with a purely static anatomic perception.
