- IMAGES IN CARDIOLOGY: Ablation of haemodynamically unstable right ventricular outflow tract ventricular tachycardia guided by non-contact mapping. Fung, J. W. H.; Chan, H. C. K.; Sanderson, J. E. // Heart;Jan2002, Vol. 87 Issue 1, p15
A 60 year old man presented with recurrent near syncope preceded by fast palpitation for six months. Investigations showed normal left and right ventricles. Programmed electrical stimulation (PES) was able to induce clinical arrhythmia of cycle length 250 ms with left bundle branch block pattern...

Furushima, Hiroshi; Chinushi, Masaomi; Iijima, Kenichi; Izumi, Daisuke; Hosaka, Yukio; Aizawa, Yoshifusa // Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology;Mar2012, Vol. 33 Issue 2, p135
Objective: To assess the electrophysiological characteristics of the breakout site of ventricular activation using electroanatomical voltage mapping (EVM) and its relation to the optimal ablation site in idiopathic ventricular tachyarrhythmias originating from the outflow tract of the (RVOT)...
- CE Test. // Critical Care Nurse;Oct2006, Vol. 26 Issue 5, p22
A quiz concerning the mapping of ventricular tachycardia is presented.
- Ventricular Tachycardia of Thirty--five Days Duration. Trever, Robert W. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Nov63 Part 1, Vol. 59 Issue 5, p732
Discusses the case of a 59-year-old patient which can provide information relative to aspects of the problem of ventricular tachycardia of 35 days duration. Symptoms; Electrocardiography results; Results of treatment by external electric countershock.
- Bupivacaine/propofol. // Reactions Weekly;Aug2014, Vol. 1512 Issue 1, p13
The article presents a case study of a 67 year old man, who had admitted for a right hemicolectomy, has developed post-operative ventricular tachycardia during treatment with bupivacaine and propofol.
- VENTRICULAR FIBRILLO-FLUTTER ("TORSADE DE POINTE"): AN ESTABLISHED ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHIC AND CLINICAL ENTITY. Ranquin, R.; Parizel, G. // Angiology;Feb1977, Vol. 28 Issue 2, p115
Presents several case reports of ventricular fibro-flutter. Association with long QT time; Electrocardiographic criteria for the problem; Etiologic factors; Synonymous terms used to describe the condition.
- Palpitations and arrhythmias: Benign or threatening? Grauer, Ken; Ruskin, Jeremy N. // Patient Care for the Nurse Practitioner;Feb2004, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p6
The article provides guidelines in differentiating patients who are unusually sensitive to the sensations of sinus rhythm from those who have a dangerous arrhythmia. Patients often report symptoms such as chest pain or tightness, dyspnea, dizziness, or, most commonly, chest palpitations, that...
- Adenosine. // Reactions Weekly;6/20/2009, Issue 1257, p6
The article describes the case of a 44-year-old woman who developed sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia after receiving adenosine for palpitations. The patient received an intravascular (IV) bolus dose of adenosine due to sudden onset palpitations, which caused polymorphic ventricular...
- DiagnÃ³stico de las taquiarritmias en el paciente pediÃ¡trico. Rivera-Rodríguez, Leonardo // Archivos de CardiologÃa de MÃ©xico;2009 Supplement 2, Vol. 79 Issue 5, p31
Arrythmias in the pediatric patient usually are considered rare; nonetheless, their number is increasing. The paroxistic supraventricular tachycardia is the most frequent symptomatic arrhythmia. The diagnosis is based on electrocardiographic register. There are few diagnostic tools including the...
