Heart Rhythm Society—40th anniversary: A history of success

      Half a century ago, under the innovative direction of Dirk Durrer in Amsterdam and Philippe Coumel in Paris, the field of invasive cardiac electrophysiology was born. Approximately 10 years later, in 1980, the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE), the progenitor of the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), was founded. This year HRS, which has served as the leading global home to cardiac electrophysiology professionals, celebrates its 40th anniversary. Readers are referred to an earlier publication, created at the time of our 25th anniversary by Dr Seymour Furman, one of our founders and the first historian of HRS, in which the key elements of the first quarter century of HRS were detailed.
