Abstract

Brugada syndrome is a well-known form of idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (VF). Few data suggest that this arrhythmia may be triggered by ventricular premature beats (VPBs), and an association with other arrhythmia such as monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) or supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) has been reported. In a highly symptomatic 18-year-old-male patient with this syndrome, frequent episodes of VF, fast polymorphic VT, and fast monomorphic sustained regular tachycardia were observed. The tachycardia episodes were classified as VT or VF and as a consequence received appropriate therapies with the implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Precipitating VPBs that were stored in the ICD memory and on the electrocardiogram (ECG) exhibited the same morphology as frequent isolated VPBs. During the electrophysiological study, right and left atrial tachycardia (AT) with one-to-one atrioventricular conduction were also induced and successfully ablated. VF was ablated using the same noncontact mapping (NCM) system triggering VPBs from right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT).
