Abstract

Clinical usefullness of implantable loop recorder in diagnosis of unexplained syncope - case report: A case of a 67-year-old female with reccurent syncope is presented. In spite of extensive investigation, the cause of syncope remained unknown. The patient received insertable loop recorder (ILR). One month after implantation the patient suffered two syncopal episodes. ECG recorded by ILR showed asystolic pause of 8 seconds at the time of conversion of atrial fibrillation to sinus rhythm.
