Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Direct cardioversion used in the treatment of various cardiac arrhythmias is a highly effective and simple procedure with infrequent complications. An uncommon complication is the occurrence of pulmonary edema. This report describes a 68-year-old woman with normal coronary arteries who experienced pulmonary edema following cardioversion secondary to myocardial injury demonstrated by ECG changes and elevation of troponin T.
