This small monograph assembles a nearly complete bibliography dealing with sinoatrial (S-A) block. It discusses the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the S-A node and experimental studies on the production of S-A block. It reviews clinical material from various authors and discusses the etiology, symptomatology, and therapy of this condition. The electrocardiographic diagnosis and the differential diagnosis are discussed in detail.
I deplore that one of the investigators who has studied in great detail the blood supply to the S-A node (Géraudel) was not quoted. In spite of this minor omission, the book should have value for students of this condition, and the authors should be commended for presenting in a single book such disparate material.
