The article presents a case study of a 27-year-old male with Gitelman's syndrome who manifested an outlflow tract ventricular tachycardia (OTVT). After multiple emergency room (ER) consultations with symptoms of light headedness, palpations, and near syncope, the patient was presented for...
- Isolated Junctional Tachycardia in a Child After Noncardiac Surgery: An Uncommon Clinical Presentation. Sriram, Chenni; White, Roger; Madhavan, Malini; Cannon, Bryan // Pediatric Cardiology;Dec2011, Vol. 32 Issue 8, p1234
Isolated junctional tachycardia is rare in children but has been reported after cardiac surgery. To date, it has not been reported after noncardiac surgery. This report describes the case of a 3-year-old boy with no cardiac history who experienced transient junctional tachycardia after a right...
- Amiodarone for post-operative junctional ectopic tachycardia. Plumpton, Kevin; Justo, Robert; Haas, Nikolaus // Cardiology in the Young;Feb2005, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p13
Background: Post-operative junctional ectopic tachycardia is a transient, but potentially life threatening, rapid automatic tachyarrhythmia that requires urgent and adequate treatment. In our study, we review retrospectively the use and efficacy of amiodarone for this arrhythmia over an 8-year...

Supraventricular tachycardia caused by AV nodal dual conduction is usually re-entry tachycardia. We report a case of a 40-year-old man with incessant supraventricular tachycardia caused by simultaneous conduction via slow and fast AV nodal pathway. The patient was successfully treated with...
- Clinical importance of transesophageal electrophysiologic study in the management of supraventricular tachycardia in children. Erdoğan, İlkay; Özer, Sema; Karagöz, Tevfik; Şahin, Murat; Çeliker, Alpay // Turkish Journal of Pediatrics;Nov/Dec2009, Vol. 51 Issue 6, p578
Transesophageal electrophysiologic study (TEEPS) is a semi-invasive method widely used for evaluation of symptoms related to arrhythmia. In this study, we aimed to determine the accuracy of TEEPS in the diagnosis and differentiation of mechanisms of supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs) by...
