Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) are common arrhythmias in the clinical setting. PVCs in the structurally normal heart are usually benign, but in the presence of structural heart disease (SHD), they may indicate increased risk of sudden death. High PVC burden may induce cardiomyopathy and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction or worsen underlying cardiomyopathy. Sometimes PVCs may be a marker of underlying pathophysiologic process such as myocarditis. Identification of PVC burden is important,...

An 83 year old lady was highly symptomatic from paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (AF) despite numerous antiarrhythmic and rate-limiting medications. Given her preserved left ventricular function, a pace and ablate strategy was pursued. Ablation of the AV node proved challenging requiring 2 procedures with apparently stable AV block and regular escape at 40bpm after the first sitting. Persistent Right Bundle Branch Block (RBBB) was created prior to AV node block at the first sitting. Two irrigated-...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an established alternative for patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis when there are significant concerns regarding the risk of surgical aortic valve replacement [(1)][1]. These patients tend to be older with more comorbidities, and up to 20

Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) prevent sudden cardiac death. However, in patients with terminal illnesses, these devices may disrupt the dying process. This study was undertaken to review our current strategies surrounding device deactivation. A retrospective chart review was performed at Kingston Health Sciences Centre of patients with an ICD who died from 2015 to 2018. Data collected included patient demographics, clinical details surrounding device implantation, patient co-mor...

Idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias may arise from anywhere in the heart, and the majority of them can be effectively treated with catheter ablation. The 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is the initial mapping tool to predict the most likely site of origin and is valuable to choose the appropriate ablation strategy. Crucial to ECG interpretation is understanding the attitudinal orientation of the heart within the chest and the relationship between the different cardiac structures. In this review, ...
