Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of a child with familial long QT syndrome (Jervell Lange-Nielsen) who had multiple electrical storms in the presence of b blocker and implantable cardioverter device (ICD) therapy. Discontinuation of ICD therapy and addition of oral amiodarone to b blockade therapy resulted in freedom from electrical storms.
