abstract

  • A 56-year-old man came to the Pacemaker Clinic for his regular pacemaker control. He had experienced a syncopal episode in the previous week. He had a previous diagnosis of non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Due to a previous syncope and documented 2:1 infrahisian block, a dual-chamber permanent pacemaker had been implanted a few years before. The device was interrogated, showing several ventricular high rate episodes. A careful analysis of the stored intracardiac electrograms showed ventricular tachycardia (VT) with 2:1 ventriculoatrial conduction. The following presentation discusses the alternative diagnosis and clinical management in an unusual diagnosis of VT in the presence of non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
