Zusammenfassung

Die klinische Bedeutung von Herzrhythmusstörungen ergibt sich ganz allgemein daraus, daß sie zu Symptomen führen, die den Patienten mehr oder weniger stark belästigen und/oder einen Einfluß auf die Prognose haben. Bei Patienten mit Zustand nach Myokardinfarkt, können komplexe ventrikuläre Extrasystolen z.B. Beschwerden im Sinne von Palpitationen machen. Darüber hinaus sind diese Rhythmusstörungen aber auch prognostisch ungünstig, da sie mit dem Risiko eines plötzlichen Herztodes verbunden sind.
