A one-stage technique for creating complete heart block and implanting a permanent cardiac pacemaker in the dog is described. The animal test model has been used in the development of a rechargeable pacemaker system over a five-year period. In vivo testing led to the identification and solution of several problems in the laboratory prior to clinical use of the system.
