Right Bundle-Branch Block
A Vectorcardiographic and Electrocardiographic Study of Ventricular Septal Defect Following Open-Heart Surgery

Study of patients after open-heart surgery was helpful in this problem because postoperative changes in electrocardiograms and vectorcardiograms were clearly due to traumatic disturbance of the right bundle branch and not to right ventricular hypertrophy.
