Abstract

Arrhythmia management in young patients plays a small but important role within the broader discipline of cardiac electrophysiology (EP). By virtue of its sharp focus on developmental cardiology, congenital heart defects, and hereditary channelopathies, pediatric EP has contributed in significant ways to improved understanding of rhythm disorders in patients of all ages. Scientific progress in the field was recently reviewed at the 2012 meeting of the Heart Rhythm Society, where historical details of pioneering investigations in pediatric EP were highlighted. In this article, we hope to summarize those details and acknowledge the roles of individuals and organizations that were instrumental in developing the subspecialty.
