Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Five patients with acute myocardial infarction had ventricular fibrillation as a complication of indicated temporary pacing. All five patients had evidence of right ventricular infarction (three patients with postmortem confirmation). The presence of right ventricular infarction seems to be a contributing mechanism involved in the induction of ventricular fibrillation during temporary pacing for bradyarrhythmia complicating acute myocardial infarction.
