OBJECTIVES: This study's aim is to determine the efficacy of adrenaline in substituting Isoprenaline for inducing ischemic ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with an old myocardial infarction, who are already being prescribed Amiodarone.METHODS: Between January 2002 and December 2016 in the Rehabilitation Hospital in Cluj-Napoca there was conducted an electrophysiological study, which had the purpose to induce VT in 106 patients. Following the inclusion and exclusion criterias, 2 groups were formed: a study group of 12 patients and a control group of 22.RESULTS: During electrophysiological studies, when Adrenalin was administered i.v, there was a successful induction of VT in 6 patients (50%). Despite the fact that there was adrenalin administered, the other 6 patients did not respond, thus the VT induction could not be maintained.CONCLUSIONS: Following the electrophysiological study it was proved that adrenalin is efficient in inducing ischemic VT, in patients following treatment with Amiodarone. This method of VT induction is useful for patients in need of an activation map or to verify the efficacy of the ablation, and can be used when Isoprenaline is not available.
The exact mechanism of a cardiac arrhythmia becomes fundamentally important when treatment can be directed specifically toward that mechanism. Advances in body surface electrograms and mapping techniques have allowed the causes of ventricular tachyarrhythmias to be pinpointed, thus suggesting viable targets for ablation therapy.
This book draws on the established European guidelines from the ESC that address the key issues in sudden cardiac death, such as identifying individuals at risk prior to an episode of a ventricular tachyarrhythmia or a sudden cardiac arrest, and responding in a timely fashion to the person suffering the event out-of-the-hospital. It presents an update on what is known about sudden cardiac arrest, from basic experimental studies to clinical trials, and serves as a complement to the ESC Core Syllabus on this subject.Topics include epidemiology, genetics, arrhythmogenic mechanisms, risk stratification, autonomic nervous system and phenotypes. Disease states and special populations are also covered, as well as drug, device and ablation treatments, and cost effectiveness. All chapters are co-authored by experts from both Europe and the US.The ESC Education SeriesThis book is part of the ESC Education Series. The series is designed to provide medical professionals with the latest information about the understanding, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases. Where available, management recommendations are based on the established European Guidelines, which encompass the best techniques to use with each cardiac disease. Throughout the series, the leading international opinion leaders have been chosen to edit and contribute to the books. The information is presented in a succinct and accessible format with a clinical focus.
Describes best practices in Ventricular Tachycardia and Fibrillation Ablation based on a consensus of the world's leading experts, based on the annual 'Venice Arrythmias' meeting Catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation has become a widespread, yet controversial, treatment modality in electrophysiology laboratories Presents a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of all the most important and debated aspects of atrial fibrillation ablation Covers all key topics, from pre- and intra-procedural management to best techniques and outcomes for patients with and without structural HD to Indications for VT/VF ablation and hybrid therapy to future tools and treatment options
This book is a comprehensive and practical updated review about the various aspects of cardiac arrhythmias. It covers a variety of aspects of both atrial and nonatrial arrhythmias, including genetics, clinical aspects, ECG manifestations, and practical approaches to complex cardiac arrhythmia management - office, hospital, intensive care unit, electrophysiology laboratory, and operating room. This book also presents comprehensive ECG reviews of cardiac arrhythmias like atrial flutter, Brugada pattern, Breijo ECG pattern, and PVCs. Practical aspects of preventing and managing arrhythmias - central venous catheter-induced, atrial flutter, and drug-induced cardiac arrhythmias - are described. Experts have demonstrated the approach for mapping and ablation of complex arrhythmias like atrial flutter, idiopathic ventricular tachycardia, and Brugada syndrome.
