Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of pectus excavatum associated with ventricular tachycardia provoked by exercise in a 19-year-old man. Although this chest deformity has been associated with supraventricular dysrhythmias, documented ventricular tachycardia has only been reported once. Our patient's ventricular dysrhythmia was treated by surgical correction of his pectus excavatum only, and at 3 years follow-up he has had no recurrence of his ventricular tachycardia.
