Periprocedural considerations during implantation of ICD in a patient with Dextrocardia.

Aliyev F, Turkoglu C, Uzunhasan I, Celiker C - Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J (2010)

Bottom Line: In this case report we present a patient with dextrocardia, who undergone implantation of dual chamber implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD).Here we aimed to underline several specific considerations which must be noted when one considers to implant an ICD in a patient with dextrocardia.

Figure 1: Episode of sustained ventricular tachycardia with haemodynamic instability. Precordial leads are placed on the right side of chest. Righ sided extremity electrodes are placed on the left and left electrodes are placed on the right side.

Mentions: A 63 years old male with previously established diagnosis of dextrocardia, was admitted to our hospital with frequent syncopal episodes. He had documented episodes of sustained ventricular tachycardia (Figure 1) and normal coronary arteries. During electrophysiologic study, HV interval was measured 110 msec and fast ventricular tachycardia, degenerating to ventricular fibrillation was easily induced. We decided to perform implantation of dual chamber implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) (Figure 2). Procedure was successfully completed. Patient received 4 successful ICD discharges for ventricular fibrillation during one year follow-up.
