Congenital long QT syndrome (cLQTS) is an inherited cardiac ion channelopathy characterized by a long corrected-QT interval on the ECG, associated with a risk of syncope and sudden death as a result of arrhythmias. The archetypal arrhythmia associated with cLQTS is torsade de pointes which may degenerate into ventricular fibrillation. Children with Jervell and Lange-Neilsen syndrome have the combination of cLQTS and congenital sensorineural deafness and may present for cochlear implantation (CI). Sympathetic stimulation and administration of QT-prolonging medications may trigger arrhythmias in children with cLQTS and thus the perioperative period is a time of increased risk of adverse events, with deaths reported in the CI literature...

Background: Fluoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) commonly used in the treatment of depression. While most intoxications with SSRI's have favorable outcomes and do not require interventions other than strict observation of vital signs and heart rhythm, clinicians should be aware of the life-threatening complications that may occur. Case presentation: A 61-year-old woman presented to the emergency department after an intentional multiple drug overdose...

The Comprehensive in vitro Proarrhythmia Assay (CiPA) initiative is validating a new paradigm for assessing proarrhythmic potential of drugs that goes beyond hERG block and QT prolongation. Based on in vitro data of the drug's effects on multiple cardiac ion channel currents, CiPA's in silico model of the human cardiomyocyte will classify drugs as low, intermediate or high risk for torsade de pointes. Under CiPA, early phase 1 ECG data will be used to determine if there are unexpected ion channel effects in humans compared to the in vitro ion channel data...

BACKGROUND: Bradycardia-induced torsade de pointes (TdP) tachycardia in patients with spontaneous high-degree atrioventricular block (AVB) is common. The aim of this study was to analyze endocardial recordings during TdP in spontaneous high-degree AVB in humans to better understand the electrophysiological mechanisms underlying this phenomenon. METHODS: The study group consisted of 5 patients with typical episodes of TdP during spontaneous high-degree AVB. A standard (USCI) temporary bipolar endocardial catheter positioned at the apex of the right ventricle (RV) and bipolar chest leads from two precordial leads V1 and V4 were used to record the tracings during TdP...

A 10-month-old infant experienced cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation (VF). His electrocardiogram (ECG) at rest was within the normal range. Amiodarone was indispensable due to its refractoriness to defibrillation. After implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation, ICD shock was delivered. ICD recordings documented VF and ventricular tachycardia (VT) triggered by premature ventricular contractions with an extremely short coupling interval (240 ms), which were controlled by verapamil...

Background: A prolonged QT interval is associated with increased risk of Torsade de Pointes and cardiovascular death. The prevalence and clinical relevance of QT prolongation in acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD), with high risk for cardiac morbidity and mortality, is currently unclear. Methods: A dual cross-sectional study strategy was therefore designed. A retrospective study evaluated 140 patients with an AECOPD requiring hospitalization, half of which had prolonged QTc on the admission ECG...

Introduction: Sudden cardiac death (SCD) of young athletes during competition or training is a tragic event. The long QT syndrome (LQTS) is an arrythmogenic disorder characterized by prolonged ventricular repolarization leading to torsade de pointes evident at electrocardiogram (ECG). Implantable cardioverter defibrillator is an option to revert ventricular fibrillation to sinus rhythm, although the implantation may result in denial of sports participations to the athlete. The authors reviewed the current literature on LQTS in young athletes, to clarify the role of different screening technologies to prevent SCD...

Continuous electroencephalography (CEEG) is chiefly performed at The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) for identifying seizures, including its refined use within the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) as a differentiator between epileptic and psychogenic etiologies. CEEG also provides critical data that carry implications outside the bounds of both epilepsy and psychogenic events, such as the characterization of unorthodox clinical phenomena that are of physiological (though nonepileptic) origins. Although nonepileptic events (NEEs) are primarily linked with psychogenic phenomena (conversion disorder, malingering) that can mimic epileptic activity, they, like seizures, have diverse semiologies and etiologies...

Cardiotoxicity is among the top drug safety concerns, and is of specific interest in tuberculosis, where this is a known or potential adverse event of current and emerging treatment regimens. As there is a need for a tool, beyond the QT interval, to quantify cardiotoxicity early in drug development, an empirical decision tree based classifier was developed to predict the risk of Torsades de pointes (TdP). The cardiac risk algorithm was developed using pseudo-electrocardiogram (ECG) outputs derived from cardiac myocyte electromechanical model simulations of increasing concentrations of 96 reference compounds which represented a range of clinical TdP risk...

Atrioventricular (AV) block has been extensively studied. However, conduction inside the myocardium in patients with AV block has not been reported. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate the presence of intramyocardial block in patients with AV block. Five consecutive patients with spontaneous high-grade AV block and Torsades de pointes (TdP) were prospectively studied with standard United States Catheter Instruments (USCI) endocardial temporary catheter located at the right ventricle (RV) apex. The morphology of endocardial potentials observed in the basic QRS complexes as well as during episodes of TdP was studied...

BACKGROUND: The most common acquired cause of Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is drug induced QT interval prolongation. It is an electrophysiological entity, which is characterized by an extended duration of the ventricular repolarization. Reflected as a prolonged QT interval in a surface ECG, this syndrome increases the risk for polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (Torsade de Pointes) and sudden death. METHOD: Bibliographic databases as MEDLINE and EMBASE, reports and drug alerts from several regulatory agencies (FDA, EMEA, ANMAT) and drug safety guides (ICH S7B, ICH E14) were consulted to prepare this article...

BACKGROUND: In patients with the long QT syndrome (LQTS), a sudden increase in heart rate can cause T-wave alternans (TWA) with beat-to-beat alternating polarity of T wave. We hypothesized that LQTS patients at high risk for torsades de pointes (TdP) may exhibit momentary atrial or sinoatrial premature beat-induced T-wave inversion (APB-TWI). OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the association of APB-TWI with TdP history and with microvolt TWA. METHODS: Twenty-four-hour continuous 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) were recorded in 18 healthy subjects and 39 consecutive patients with LQTS types 1 (n = 21), 2 (n = 4), 3 (n = 4), and unidentified (n = 10)...

Since its initial description by Jervell and Lange-Nielsen in 1957, the congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) has been the most investigated cardiac ion channelopathy. Although congenital LQTS continues to remain the domain of cardiologists, cardiac electrophysiologists, and specialized centers, the by far more frequent acquired drug-induced LQTS is the domain of all physicians and other members of the health care team who are required to make therapeutic decisions. This report will review the electrophysiological mechanisms of LQTS and torsade de pointes, electrocardiographic characteristics of acquired LQTS, its clinical presentation, management, and future directions in the field...

BACKGROUND: Use of the QT interval corrected for heart rate (QTc) on the electrocardiogram (ECG) to predict torsades de pointes (TdP) risk from culprit drugs is neither sensitive nor specific. The ratio of the half-maximum inhibitory concentration of the hERG channel (hERG IC50) to the peak serum concentration of unbound drug (Cmax ) is used during drug development to screen out chemical entities likely to cause TdP. PURPOSE: To validate the use of the hERG IC50:Cmax ratio to predict TdP risk from a culprit drug by its correlation with TdP incidence...

BACKGROUND: Congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) can cause ventricular arrhythmic events with syncope and sudden death resulting from malignant torsades de pointes (TdP) followed by ventricular fibrillations (VFs). However, the syndrome is often overlooked prior to the development of arrhythmic events in patients with congenital heart diseases demonstrating right bundle branch block on electrocardiogram (ECG). We present a case of an adult patient with congenital heart disease who developed VFs postoperatively, potentially due to his mutation in a LQTS related gene, which was not identified on preoperative assessment due to incomplete evaluation of his family history...
