Part of the Kirschnersche allgemeine und spezielle Operationslehre book series (OPERATIONSLEHRE, volume 6 / 2)


Im letzten Jahrzehnt hat die Chirurgie der tachykar-den Rhythmusstörungen eine beachtliche Entwicklung erfahren und kann heute als etablierte Methode in der Behandlung bestimmter tachykarder Herzrhythmusstörungen angeboten werden. Dies sind die lebensbedrohlichen Tachykardien bei Wolff-Parkinson-White-Syndrom und die sog. fokalen atrialen Tachykardien, sowie die therapierefraktären anhaltenden ventrikulären Tachykardien bei ischämischen und nichtischämischen Herzerkrankungen.
