Zusammenfassung

Der elektrische Sturm („electrical storm“, ES) ist in der Regel als Auftreten von ≥ 3 anhaltenden ventrikulären Arrhythmieepisoden innerhalb von 24 h definiert. Die Katheterablation stellt eine vielversprechende Möglichkeit zur Rhythmusstabilisierung und möglicherweise zur Prognoseverbesserung dar. Die vorhandenen Studien suggerieren eine wesentliche Rolle einer frühzeitigen Katheterablation bei Patienten mit elektrischem Sturm.

Abstract

Electrical storm is an increasingly recognized clinical entity. It is generally defined as the occurrence of ≥ 3 episodes of potentially life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias during a time span of 24 h. Apart from pharmacological treatment options, catheter ablation remains a relatively novel, promising addition to the armamentarium of the cardiologist. Here, we will review the study data on ablation of patients with electrical storm.
