Book Summary

  • From senior electrophysiologist and world-class educator George
    Klein, a fully illustrated guide with over 100 intracardiac tracings and
    figures that allow the physician to approach electrophysiologic
    problems effectively and systematically.
  • The book is especially
    focused on electrophysiological maneuvers and provides a clear and
    understandable guide to their proper selection and interpretation using
    abundant clinical examples.
  • Defines the integral role for "traditional" electrogram (EGM) analysis in order to understand the mechanism of a tachycardia.

goes without saying that a correct arrhythmia diagnosis is a
prerequisite to catheter ablation regardless of the presence of
sophisticated mapping and imaging technologies. Electrophysiological
maneuvers are fundamental to this process, and proper selection and
interpretation of maneuvers constitute a core skill of the
electrophysiologist. In this volume, we make the case that most
maneuvers are fundamentally similar in principle and can be understood
by appreciating a few basic physiological and anatomical principles. The
art lies not in a comprehensive knowledge by rote of every maneuver or
its application, but rather a systematic approach using common
principles. We illustrate this by showing abundant examples and
emphasizing the "game plan," including checklists that can be applied to
virtually any maneuver.

�George J. Klein

In my
opinion, this book should be on the shelf of every electrophysiologist
trainee as well as every clinical cardiac electrophysiologist. It is a
classic, like its editor. Dr. Klein deserves high praise for organizing
his and his colleagues� clinical experiences and thought processes into a
concise, practical text that should be part of all training programs in
