An inferior axis is present when the VT has an origin in the basal area of the ventricle. A junctional tachycardia suprwventricular somewhat unusual in this age group, and, because the QRS complexes are not narrow and normal-appearing, intraventricular aberration would have to be present.

During tachycardia the QRS is more narrow.

ILVT is thought to have a re-entrant basis or derives from triggered activity secondary to delayed afterdepolarisations. The origin of this QRS rhythm cannot be known with certainty, and may be supraventricular with intraventricular aberration, junctional, or ventricular. Diagnostic coved ST-segment elevation in both leads following the administration of 1 g procainamide.

Alta probabilidad de TV Solo puede explicarse: Idiopathic outflow tract tachycardias are usually well tolerated, probably because of the preserved ventricular function. 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.

The origin of the QRS rhythm may be in the AV junction, with associated intraventricular aberration, or in fascicular or ventricular tissue.

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.


This type of re-entry may occur in patients with anteroseptal myocardial infarction, idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, myotonic dystrophy, after aortic valve surgery, and after severe frontal chest trauma. Cardiac arrhythmias are common complications during pregnancy, and it appears that the incidence of arrhythmias has been increasing in patients with cardiocersion without structural cardiac disease. In the last portion of the third panel, the ventricular cardiovwrsion terminates, and normal sinus rhythm spontaneously resumes.

It may occur in AV junctional tachycardia with BBB after cardiac surgery or during digitalis intoxication. In fact, there is an important rule in LBBB shaped VT with left axis deviation that cardiac disease should be suspected and that idiopathic right ventricular VT is extremely unlikely. When the arrhythmia arises in the lateral free wall of the ventricle sequential activation of the eledtrica occurs resulting in a very wide QRS.

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. 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: Never make the mistake of rejecting VT because the broad QRS tachycardia is haemodynamically well tolerated. In this setting, supravsntricular synchronized cardioversion is the treatment of choice regardless of the mechanism of the arrhythmia.

Cardiovesrion preexistente ancianos con fibrosis sist. These notches might be P waves, or part of the QRS complexes themselves.

However, the lack of response to medical treatment and electrical cardioversion is rare. On the left sinus rhythm is present with a very wide QRS because of anterolateral myocardial infarction and pronounced delay in left ventricular activation. In this paper, Vereckei et al.

Readers’ Responses

AV dissociation may be present but not obvious on the ECG. Electfica key aspects on the subject are also mentioned. 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. The least common idiopathic left VT is the one shown in panel C. The case is presented of a pregnant patient with supraventricular re-entry tachycardia with no response to different pharmacological measures cardiovversion to several attempts of electro-cardioversion that required an electrophysiological work-up and resulting ablation.


The most common type is shown in panel A.

See “Pharmacologic interventions” below and see “Uncertain diagnosis” below [3,4]. The first occurrence of the tachycardia after an MI strongly implies VT [7]. See “General principles of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator”.

Hence, this VT has a favourable long term prognosis elechrica compared with VT in structural heart disease. Now the frontal QRS axis is inferiorly directed.

Eje muy negativo QRS axis in the frontal plane The QRS axis is not only important for the differentiation of the broad QRS tachycardia supraventricluar also to identify its site of origin and aetiology. They cadioversion often amenable to cure by radiofrequency ablation.

More marked irregularity of RR intervals occurs in polymorphic VT and in atrial fibrillation AF with aberrant conduction. 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. This tachycardia arises more anteriorly close to the interventricular septum.

A supraventicular of myocardial ischemia or infarction cannot be made with certainty in the presence of a left intraventricular conduction delay. Pregnancy; Arrhythmia; Supraventricular tachycardia; Ablation. If they are P waves, they occur in 1:
