Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 61-year-old woman with Leriche's syndrome and ischemic cardiomyopathy (left ventricular ejection fraction 24% after inferior myocardial infarction) and a single-chamber implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) presented to the hospital with palpitations. The electrocardiogram (Fig.1, left panel) revealed a relatively narrow QRS complex tachycardia (NCT, QRS width 104ms), slightly irregular at 154 beats per minute without visible P waves. Intermittently, more narrow QRS complexes were observed after shorter intervals (evident in beat 3). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
