Abstract

Slow ventricular tachycardia (VT), which is below the detection rate of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator may cause haemodynamical instability, when pharmacological agents or antitachycardia pacing are unsuccessful, electrical cardioversion is necessary. We present another method of termination of slow VT by ICD, in which transcutaneous pacing mimics faster VT and triggers ICD discharge.
