Neurological injury is often associated with cardiac abnormalities, including electrophysiological issues. Cardioversion of acute atrial fibrillation (<48h' duration) without anticoagulation carries about a 0.7% risk of thromboembolism. There is limited data on managing acute atrial fibrillation specifically in the neuroscience intensive care unit (NSICU) setting. We sought to determine the safety of using intravenous (IV) amiodarone for restoring sinus rhythm in patients with presumed new onset atrial or ventricular tachycardia after neurological injury...

BACKGROUND: A previously under-recognized subset of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients with left ventricular (LV) apical aneurysms is being identified with increasing frequency. However, risks associated with this subgroup are unknown. OBJECTIVES: The authors aimed to clarify clinical course and prognosis of a large cohort of HCM patients with LV apical aneurysms over long-term follow-up. METHODS: The authors retrospectively analyzed 1,940 consecutive HCM patients at 2 centers, 93 of which (4...

Idiopathic epicardial ventricular tachycardias (VTs) account for 9% of idiopathic VTs. The recognition of this entity is important, as a minimally invasive ablation procedure performed exclusively through the coronary sinus branches may be considered, avoiding the potential risks associated with access to the left ventricular endocardium, the aortic root, and the pericardial space. The electrocardiographic features and therapeutic management of this rare form of tachycardia are discussed.

Anesthesiologists frequently see asymptomatic patients with diastolic dysfunction or heart failure for various surgeries. These patients typically show normal systolic function but abnormal diastolic parameters in their preoperative echocardiographic evaluations. The symptoms that are sometimes seen are similar to those of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Patients with diastolic dysfunction, and even with diastolic heart failure, have the potential to develop a hypertensive crisis or pulmonary congestion...

A 75-year-old man presented with dizziness and fatigue secondary to ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias. He underwent an elective ablation but continued to suffer from ventricular tachycardia with cardiovascular instability despite antiarrhythmic therapy with multiple agents. The patient continued to develop episodes of ventricular tachycardia and an episode of ventricular fibrillation. Electrical storm encompasses a situation of cardiac instability which may present as several episodes of ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation in a short period...

BACKGROUND: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a rare inherited cardiomyopathywith a high burden of ventricular arrhythmia, which is an important cause of suddencardiac death (SCD). Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is believed to be the most reliable management against SCD. HYPOTHESIS: Ventricular arrhythmia does not necessarily confer a poor prognosis in ARVC patients with an ICD. METHODS: A total of 39 ARVC patients (34 male) implanted with an ICD at our electrophysiologycenter and followed up continuously were included in this study...

Despite advances in the medical and surgical management of cardiovascular disease, greater than 350,000 patients experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the United States annually, with only a 12% neurologically favorable survival rate. Of these patients, 23% have an initial shockable rhythm of ventricular fibrillation/pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT), a marker of high probability of acute coronary ischemia (80%) as the precipitating factor. However, few patients (22%) will experience return of spontaneous circulation and sufficient hemodynamic stability to undergo cardiac catheterization and revascularization...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular and atrial arrhythmias commonly occur in heart failure patients and are a significant source of symptoms, morbidity and mortality. Some specific generators referred to as dual defibrillators, Dual CRT-Ds, have the ability to treat atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. TRADE-HF is a prospective two-arm randomized study aimed at assessing the benefits of complete automatic management of atrial arrhythmias in patients implanted with a dual CRT-D. METHODS: Primary objective of the TRADE-HF study was to document reduction of unplanned hospital admission for cardiac reasons or death for cardiovascular causes or progression to permanent AF, by comparing fully-automatic device driven therapy for atrial tachycardia or fibrillation (AT/AF) to an in-hospital approach for treatment of symptomatic AT/AF...

BACKGROUND: Adenosine is the first-line pharmacotherapy for termination of supraventricular tachycardia through its action on the atrioventricular node. However, pro-arrhythmic effects of adenosine are also recognised, most notably in the presence of pre-excited atrial fibrillation. In this case report, we describe the induction of ventricular fibrillation in a patient with no demonstrable accessory pathway, nor any other structural heart disease. This rare, idiosyncratic reaction has never previously been reported and is of relevance given the widespread and routine use of adenosine in clinical practice...

Radiofrequency catheter ablation is increasingly being used to treat patients who have ventricular tachycardia, and anesthesiologists frequently manage their perioperative care. This narrative review is intended to familiarize anesthesiologists with preprocedural, intraprocedural, and postprocedural implications of this ablation. Ventricular tachycardia typically arises from structural heart disease, most often from scar tissue after myocardial infarction. Many patients thus affected will benefit from radiofrequency catheter ablation in the electrophysiology laboratory to ablate the foci of arrhythmogenesis...

It is almost a quarter of century that a pioneering work of 2 researchers named Brugada brought the entire scientific community to understanding the molecular, clinical, and electrophysiological aspects of a distinctive syndrome. It affects mainly young adults with syncope and/or sudden cardiac death caused by polymorphic ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation in the absence of any sign of cardiac degeneration or alteration. Although the involvement of the epicardial layer of the right ventricular outflow tract, and the requirement of pharmacologic challenge for unveiling concealed forms, have been fully characterized, many areas of uncertainties remain to be elucidated, such as the unpredictable usefulness of programmed ventricular stimulation, the role of radiofrequency catheter ablation for reducing ST-segment elevation, and the value of risk stratification in patients diagnosed with upper displacement of right precordial leads...

An 81-year-old male with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis with ventricular tachycardia was referred for treatment. Balloon aortic valvuloplasty was performed under cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Though transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) was considered high risk for annulus rupture and aortic regurgitation due to annular calcification, TAVI was performed because of extremely high surgical risk. Moderate-to-severe aortic regurgitation (AR) remained and progression of acidosis could not be managed with continuous hemodiafiltration...

A 78-year-old man was admitted to the authors' hospital with a short history of shortness of breath and pyrexia. He had long-standing moderate mitral regurgitation and stable coronary artery disease. Blood cultures grew Abiotrophia defectiva coccobaccili. Transesophageal echocardiography confirmed the diagnosis of mitral valve endocarditis that necessitated treatment with intravenous benzylpenicillin and gentamicin for six weeks. At nine days after admission the patient developed several episodes of self-limiting monomorphic ventricular tachycardia, without ischemic cardiac pain, associated with hemodynamic compromise requiring treatment with intravenous amiodarone and inotropic support in the Intensive Care Unit...

Ventricular arrhythmias are common after left ventricular assist device implantation. Malposition of the inflow cannula is one of the few etiologies with a mechanically correctable defect. We present a case of intractable ventricular tachycardia that resolved after surgical repositioning of a HeartMate II inflow cannula. The diagnosis and management of this case demonstrate the utility of imaging studies for detecting inflow cannula malposition and the efficacy of inflow cannula repositioning for treatment.
