Key clinical characteristics of inherited long QT syndrome LQTS are shown, including prolongation of QT interval on electrocardiogram ECGcommonly associated arrhythmia torsades de pointesclinical manifestation, and long-term outcomes.

It is often seen in younger patients female. When the arrhythmia arises in the lateral free wall of the ventricle sequential activation of the ventricles occurs resulting in a very wide QRS.

Symptoms are primarily due to the elevated heart rate, associated heart disease, and the presence of left ventricular dysfunction [4,6,7]. QRS relativamente estrecho 0. Negative concordancy is diagnostic for a VT arising in the apical area of the heart fig The rhythm is more likely originating in ventricular tissue. Of course other factors also play a role in the QRS width during VT, such as scar tissue after myocardial infarctionventricular hypertrophy, and muscular disarray as in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

As shown by the accompanying tracing, during sinus rhythm anterior wall myocardial infarction is present in the left taquicardua and inferior wall myocardial infarction in the right one. Nondiagnostic J point elevation in precordial leads V1 and V2. The case is presented of a pregnant patient with supraventricular re-entry tachycardia with no response to different pharmacological measures and to supravntricular attempts of electro-cardioversion that required an electrophysiological work-up and resulting ablation.


No utilizar envases de PVC. In this study, electricaa QRS complex tachycardias [ ventricular tachycardias VTssupraventricular tachycardias SVTs20 preexcited tachycardias] from patients with proven diagnoses were prospectively analyzed by two of the authors blinded to the diagnosis.

The first occurrence of the tachycardia after an MI strongly implies VT [7].

In these settings, however, there is a consistent relationship between the P waves and the QRS complexes, so there is not true AV dissociation. The QRS complexes are not preceded by P waves.

The term “capture beat” implies that the normal conduction system has momentarily “captured” control of ventricular activation from the VT focus.

They are often amenable to cure by radiofrequency ablation. SVT not associated with structural cardiac disease or drug presence, for example, would be expected to show rapid initial forces and delayed mid-terminal forces.

This does not hold for an LBBB shaped tachycardia.


Symptoms — Symptoms are not useful in determining the diagnosis, but they are important as an indicator of the severity of hemodynamic compromise. An antidromic circus movement tachycardia with AV conduction over a right sided accessory pathway. To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. If they are P waves, they occur in 1: One to one ventriculo-atrial conduction during VT. Idiopathic outflow tract tachycardias are usually exertion or stress related arrhythmias.

In panel B the frontal QRS axis is further leftward a so called north-west axis. Fusion beats and capture beats are more commonly seen when the tachycardia rate is slower. Some key aspects on the subject are also mentioned.


Misdiagnosis of VT as SVT based upon hemodynamic stability is a common error that can lead to inappropriate and potentially dangerous therapy.

Also the presence of AV conduction disturbances during sinus shpraventricular make it very unlikely that a broad QRS tachycardia in that patient has a supraventricular origin and, as already shown in fig 11, a QRS width during tachycardia more narrow that during sinus rhythm points to a VT.

ILVT is thought to have a re-entrant basis or derives sipraventricular triggered activity secondary to delayed afterdepolarisations.

It is also important to establish whether a cardiac arrhythmia has occurred in the past and, if so, whether the patient is aware of taquicardiia etiology. Such patients should have continuous monitoring and frequent reevaluations due to the potential for rapid deterioration. Regularity — VT is generally regular, although slight variation in the RR intervals is sometimes seen.

TV Eje izquierdo frontal V6 Marriott6 described that in RBBB shaped tachycardia, presence of a qR or R complex in lead V1 strongly argued for a ventricular origin of the tachycardia, while a three phasic RSR pattern suggested a supraventricular eh. In this paper, Vereckei et al. In some cases of VT, the ventricular impulses elrctrica backwards through the AV node and capture the atrium referred to as retrograde conductionpreventing AV dissociation [21].


It eleftrica occur in AV junctional tachycardia with BBB after cardiac surgery or during digitalis intoxication. The rationale for these criteria is eminently reasonable. Pregnancy; Arrhythmia; Supraventricular tachycardia; Ablation.
