Suppression of electrical storm by biventricular pacing in a patient with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and ventricular tachycardia.

PMID:  12685146     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This study presents a patient with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy who had suffered from multiple ICD shocks. Amiodarone and a beta-blocker failed to suppress ventricular tachycardia. His ECG showed a very wide QRS complex with an intraventricular conduction delay, so biventricular (BV) pacing was attempted. The BV pacing successfully prevented the multiple ICD shocks accompanied with an improvement in left ventricular systolic function and physical activity.
