Accelerated idioventricular rhythm: history and chronology of the main discoveries.

Riera AR, Barros RB, de Sousa FD, Baranchuk A - Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J (2010)

Bottom Line: Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm (AIVR) is a ventricular rhythm consisting of three or more consecutive monomorphic beats, with gradual onset and gradual termination.It can rarely manifest in patients with completely normal hearts or with structural heart disease.This manuscript aims to review the history of the main discoveries that lead to the identification and comprehension of this fascinating arrhythmia.

ABSTRACT
Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm (AIVR) is a ventricular rhythm consisting of three or more consecutive monomorphic beats, with gradual onset and gradual termination. It can rarely manifest in patients with completely normal hearts or with structural heart disease. It is usually seen during acute myocardial infarction reperfusion. This manuscript aims to review the history of the main discoveries that lead to the identification and comprehension of this fascinating arrhythmia.

This ECG belongs to a 23 year-old male patient, Caucasian, asymptomatic.  No cardiovascular history. He practiced physical activities regularly. He has been treated with azitromicine for an upper airway infection. Both panels show sinus rhythm alternating with AIVR at approximately 60 bpm. Note fusion beats (F).

Figure 1: This ECG belongs to a 23 year-old male patient, Caucasian, asymptomatic. No cardiovascular history. He practiced physical activities regularly. He has been treated with azitromicine for an upper airway infection. Both panels show sinus rhythm alternating with AIVR at approximately 60 bpm. Note fusion beats (F).

Mentions: A typical example of AIVR in the setting of normal structural heart can be seen in Figure 1. In Figure 2, a case of AIVR in the context of a reperfused acute inferior MI can be seen.
