Abstract

Inappropriate implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapy is the commonest adverse event in patients with ICD. We present a case of sinus rhythm restoration after an inappropriate shock in a man with permanent atrial fibrillation and dilated cardiomyopathy. During follow-up, clinical improvement has been observed.
