Abstract

The history of electrical therapy for the heart can be said to have begun with the implantation of the first permanent pacemaker in Stockholm, Sweden in 1958. This paper outlines the important events in a very rapidly growing and successful therapeutic endeavour up to the present time and, in so doing, sets the scene for the series of papers that follow in this commemorative issue of the Journal.
