Symptoms are primarily due to the elevated heart rate, associated heart disease, and the presence of left ventricular dysfunction [4,6,7]. It arises on or near to the septum near the left posterior fascicle. These notches elfctrica be P waves, or part of the QRS complexes themselves. Misdiagnosis of VT as SVT based upon hemodynamic stability is a common error that can lead to inappropriate and potentially dangerous therapy. The QRS complexes have an LBBB pattern, but because ventricular depolarization may not be occurring over the normal AV node His-Purkinje pathway, definitive statements about underlying intraventricular conduction delay cannot be made.

Note the baseline QT prolongation, with abrupt lengthening of the QT interval after the pause, followed by the onset of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, which suddenly terminates.

Some patients with a WCT have few epectrica no symptoms palpitations, lightheadedness, diaphoresiswhile others have severe manifestations including chest pain or angina, syncope, shock, seizures, and cardiac arrest [6]. If P waves are not evident on the surface ECG, direct recordings of atrial activity eg, with an esophageal lead or an intracardiac catheter can reveal AV dissociation [22].


Idiopathic outflow tract tachycardias are usually well tolerated, probably because of the preserved ventricular function. See “Pharmacologic interventions” below and see “Uncertain diagnosis” below [3,4]. In this paper, Vereckei et al. In fact, there is an important rule in LBBB shaped VT with left axis deviation that cardiac disease should be suspected and that idiopathic right ventricular VT is extremely unlikely.

Left panel VT; right panel supdaventricular patient during sinus rhythm.

They are often amenable to cure by radiofrequency ablation. Such patients should have continuous monitoring and frequent reevaluations due to the potential for rapid deterioration.

Patients who become unresponsive or pulseless are considered to have a cardiac arrest and are treated according to standard resuscitation algorithms. The resulting QRS complex has a morphology intermediate between that of a sinus beat and a purely ventricular complex show ECG 9.

It is important to recognise this pattern because this site of origin of the VT cannot be treated with catheter ablation in contrast to the tachycardias depicted in panel A and B C, Eje QRS: Fusion beats and capture beats are more commonly seen when the tachycardia rate is slower.

In the discussions that follow, patients are categorized as follows: However, VT must be considered in younger patients, particularly those with a family history of ventricular arrhythmias or premature sudden cardiac death. It may occur in AV junctional tachycardia with BBB after cardiac surgery or during digitalis intoxication. In the right panel eletrica activation starts in the left posterior area, resulting in positive concordancy of all precordial leads. In panel B the frontal QRS axis is further leftward a so called north-west axis.


The origin of this QRS rhythm cannot be known with certainty, and may be supraventricular with intraventricular aberration, junctional, or ventricular. More marked irregularity of RR intervals occurs in polymorphic VT and in atrial fibrillation AF with aberrant conduction.


As shown by the accompanying tracing, during sinus rhythm anterior wall myocardial infarction is present in the left panel and inferior wall myocardial infarction in the right one. It is also important to establish whether a cardiac arrhythmia has occurred in the past and, if so, whether the patient is aware of the etiology.

The case is presented of a pregnant patient with supraventricular re-entry tachycardia with no carduoversion to different pharmacological measures and to several attempts of electro-cardioversion that required an electrophysiological work-up and resulting ablation.

On the left sinus rhythm is present with a very wide QRS because of anterolateral myocardial infarction and pronounced delay in left ventricular activation.

Many of these tachycardias are benign, and occur in the absence of structural heart disease. Desencadenadas con esfuerzo Bien toleradas.

The prognosis is generally good, but suprraventricular patients may be highly symptomatic.
