Three types of idiopathic VT arising in or close to the outflow tract of the right ventricle see text. Also the presence of AV conduction disturbances during sinus rhythm make it very unlikely that a broad QRS tachycardia in that patient has a supraventricular origin and, as already shown in fig 11, a QRS width during tachycardia more narrow that during sinus rhythm points to a VT. It may occur in AV junctional tachycardia with BBB after cardiac surgery or during digitalis intoxication.

This is a tachycardia not arising on the endocardial surface of the right ventricular outflow tract but epicardially in between the root of the aorta and the posterior part of the outflow tract of the right ventricle.

More importantly, the presence of an ICD implies that the patient is known to have an increased risk of ventricular tachyarrhythmias and suggests strongly but does not prove that the patient’s WCT is VT.

In the discussions that follow, patients are categorized as follows: As shown by the accompanying tracing, during sinus rhythm anterior wall myocardial infarction is present in the left panel and inferior wall myocardial infarction in the right one. The following findings are helpful in establishing the presence of AV dissociation.

QRS relativamente estrecho 0. Figure 12 gives an example of QR complexes during VT in patients with an anterior panel A and an old inferior myocardial infarction panel B.

It is of interest that a QRS width of more than 0. Lo primero la estabilidad del paciente TCA. Puede existir y no ser obvia en ECG. Some key aspects on the subject are also mentioned. In the presence of AV dissociation, one may also observe fusion beats which may result from the fusion of a P wave conducted to the ventricles. Positive taquicafdia means that in the horizontal plane ventricular activation starts left posteriorly. To use this website, you must agree to our Privacy Policyincluding cookie policy.


Services on Demand Article. Fusion beats and capture beats are more commonly seen when the tachycardia rate is slower. IM anteroseptal Miocardiopatia dilatada idiop. History of heart disease — The presence of structural heart disease, especially coronary heart disease and a carcioversion MI, strongly suggests VT as an etiology [4,7].

Symptoms — Symptoms are not useful in determining the diagnosis, but they are important as elecrica indicator of the severity of hemodynamic compromise.

That area is difficult to reach by retrograde left ventricular catheterisation and when catheter ablation is considered an atrial transseptal catheterisation should be favoured.

The rationale for these criteria is eminently reasonable. Ablation of supraventricular tachycardia resistant to medical treatment and electrical cardioversion in a pregnant woman. Findings consistent with hemodynamic instability requiring urgent cardioversion include hypotension, angina,altered level of consciousness, and heart failure.

The QRS complexes have an LBBB pattern, but because ventricular depolarization may not be occurring over the normal AV node His-Purkinje pathway, definitive statements about underlying intraventricular conduction delay cannot be made.

Age — A WCT in a patient over the age of 35 years is likely to be VT positive predictive value 85 percent in one series [11]. In this setting, emergent synchronized cardioversion is the treatment of choice regardless of the mechanism of the arrhythmia. In this paper, Vereckei et al. When in doubt, do not give verapamil or adenosine; procainamide should be used instead. If the axis is inferiorly directed, lead V6 often shows an R: When the onset of the arrhythmia is available for analysis, a period of irregularity “warm-up phenomenon”suggests VT.

Ventricular bigeminy is present, likely originating from the same focus as the tachycardia. It is also important to establish whether a cardiac arrhythmia has occurred in the past and, if so, whether the patient is aware of the etiology.

Because the mean frontal plane QRS axis of the tachycardia complexes is inferiorly directed, the focus of origin is at or near the base of the ventricle, with ventricular depolarization proceeding from base to apex.

The origin of this QRS rhythm cannot be known with certainty, and may be supraventricular with intraventricular aberration, junctional, or ventricular. In panel B the frontal QRS axis is further leftward a so called north-west axis. Now the frontal QRS axis is inferiorly directed.


An inferior axis is present when the VT has an origin in the basal area of the ventricle. Hence, this VT has a favourable long term prognosis when compared supraventriculae VT in structural heart disease.

As shown in fig 11, a very wide Supraventriculr is present during sinus rhythm because of sequential activation of first the right and then the left ventricle. Catheter ablation fig 8 12 offers curative therapy and should be considered early in the management of symptomatic patients. See “Overview of advanced cardiovascular life support in adults” and see “Overview of basic cardiovascular life support in adults”.

AV dissociation may be present but not obvious on the ECG.

TV Eje izquierdo frontal V6 Marriott6 described that in RBBB shaped tachycardia, presence of a qR or R complex in lead V1 strongly argued for a ventricular origin of the tachycardia, while a three phasic RSR pattern suggested a supraventricular origin.

An atrial rate that is faster than the ventricular rate is seen with some SVTs, such as atrial flutter or an atrial tachycardia with 2: When any of criteria 1 to 3 was present, VT was diagnosed; when absent, the next criterion was analyzed.

Of course other factors also play a role in the QRS width during VT, such as scar tissue after myocardial infarctionventricular hypertrophy, and muscular disarray as in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Eur Heart J ; In some cases of VT, the ventricular impulses conduct backwards through the AV node cardiovsrsion capture the atrium referred to as retrograde conductionpreventing AV dissociation [21]. Muesca en descenso inicial del QRS neg. Stable — This refers to a patient showing no evidence of hemodynamic compromise despite a sustained rapid heart rate. Misdiagnosis of VT as SVT based upon hemodynamic stability is a common error that can lead to inappropriate and potentially dangerous therapy.

In the setting of AMI, the latter is supraventricjlar likely. Negative concordancy is diagnostic for a VT arising in the apical area of the heart fig
