ABSTRACT
A 19-year-old female who presented with a history of trauma to the abdomen and palpitations, was found to have a supraventricular tachycardia. All pharmacologic interventions, and DC cardioversion were ineffective in terminating the arrhythmia. Manipulation of a pacing wire within the right atrium induced extrasystoles which abruptly abolished the arrhythmia.
