Documenting the descent - remote monitoring and adult-onset Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia associated with ventricular fibrillation and bradycardia

Cardiol Young. 2021 Aug;31(8):1330-1332. doi: 10.1017/S1047951121002377. Epub 2021 Jun 21.


This image highlights a 38-year-old female with ventricular fibrillation and spontaneous return to sinus rhythm found on an implantable loop recorder inserted for recurrent syncope. Ultimately, she was diagnosed with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, a rare inherited arrhythmia disorder.

Keywords: Arrhythmia; electrophysiology; extended cardiac monitoring; inherited arrhythmia.
