Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) is usually a benign arrhythmia with good prognosis that can be managed with antiarrhythmic agents and is often cured using ablation. There is, however, a malignant potential in a subset of patients with idiopathic VT as was the case for our patient whom we discuss in this case report. After a review of the medical literature, and to our knowledge, this is the first case of a successful idiopathic VT ablation in an adult while extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was being used.
