Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Suppression of Ventricular Tachycardia With Dronedarone. Introduction: Dronedarone is a multichannel blocker with similar electrophysiological properties to amiodarone. Dronedarone has not been studied in humans as an agent to suppress ventricular arrhythmias. Methods: This case report describes the dramatic antiarrhythmic effects of dronedarone in a patient with nonischemic cardiomyopathy and recurrent ventricular tachycardia, which was resistant to multiple antiarrhythmic agents and endocardial catheter ablation. Results: Dronedarone was effective in completely suppressing ventricular tachycardia. Conclusion: Further research is needed to establish a potential larger role for dronedarone in controlling ventricular arrhythmias in humans.
