It is very important to diagnose correctly the etiology of thyrotoxicosis, because the course and treatment of thyrotoxicosis with low radioactive iodine uptake differ significantly from that of hyperthyroidism due to Graves' disease or toxic nodular goiter. Many causes of subacute thyroiditis have been identified producing a characteristic course of transient hyperthyroidism, followed by hypothyroidism, and usually recovery. Ectopic hyperthyroidism includes factitious thyroid hormone ingestion, struma ovarii, and, rarely, large deposits of functioning thyroid cancer metastases. Iodine-induced hyperthyroidism may be associated with low radioiodine uptakes. Amiodarone-associated hyperthyroidism may be the result of subacute thyroiditis or iodine-induced hyperthyroidism; assessment and treatment can be quite challenging.

cordarone reviews

One hundred and eighty-four diabetic patients were enrolled in the three trials. Overall, the study population averaged 66.9 +/- 7.3 years of age, 71.7% were male, 7.1% underwent valve surgery, 4.9% had prior AF, 17.9% had heart failure and 84.2% and 41.8% received postoperative beta-blockade and prophylactic amiodarone, respectively. Forty patients (21.7%) received a preoperative TZD and 144 (78.3%) did not. In total, 66 patients (35.9%) developed post-CTS AF. Upon multivariate logistic regression, the preoperative use of TZDs was found to be associated with a 20% non-statistically significant reduction in post-CTS AF (adjusted odds ratio; 0.80, 95% CI 0.32-1.99; p = 0.63).

Successful pharmacological cardioversion of atrial fibrillation causes the left atrium and left atrial appendage contractility impairment similar to that observed with other methods of the sinus rhythm restoration. Following the AF cardioversion the level of left atrial stunning is higher in the patients treated with propafenone than in subjects receiving amiodarone.

A 68-year-old male was admitted because of progressive dyspnea and tachyarrhythmia. Symptoms of thyrotoxicosis, including agitation, sleep disturbances, and palpitations, had developed 14 days earlier and the patient's condition had worsened despite initiation of antithyroid treatment.

cordarone 500 mg

Class III antiarrhythmic drugs, especially amiodarone (a broad-spectrum antiarrhythmic agent), have gained popularity for use in clinical practice in recent years. Other class III antiarrhythmic drugs include bretylium, dofetilide, ibutilide and sotalol. These agents are effective for the management of various types of cardiac arrhythmias both atrial and ventricular in origin. Class III antiarrhythmic drugs may interact with other drugs by two major processes: pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic interactions. The pharmacodynamic interaction occurs when the pharmacological effects of the object drug are stimulated or inhibited by the precipitant drug. Pharmacokinetic interactions can result from the interference of drug absorption, metabolism and/or elimination of the object drug by the precipitant drug. Among the class III antiarrhythmic drugs, amiodarone has been reported to be involved in a significant number of drug interactions. It is mainly metabolised by cytochrome P450 (CYP)3A4 and it is a potent inhibitor of CYP1A2, 2C9, 2D6 and 3A4. In addition, amiodarone may interact with other drugs (such as digoxin) via the inhibition of the P-glycoprotein membrane transporter system, a recently described pharmacokinetic mechanism of drug interactions. Bretylium is not metabolised; it is excreted unchanged in the urine. Therefore the interactions between bretylium and other drugs (including other antiarrhythmic drugs) is primarily through the pharmacodynamic mechanism. Dofetilide is metabolised by CYP3A4 and excreted by the renal cation transport system. Drugs that inhibit CYP3A4 (such as erythromycin) and/or the renal transport system (such as triamterene) may interact with dofetilide. It appears that the potential for pharmacokinetic interactions between ibutilide and other drugs is low. This is because ibutilide is not metabolised by CYP3A4 or CYP2D6. However, ibutilide may significantly interact with other drugs by a pharmacodynamic mechanism. Sotalol is primarily excreted unchanged in the urine. The potential for drug interactions due to hepatic enzyme induction or inhibition appears to be less likely. However, a number of drugs (such as digoxin) have been reported to interact with sotalol pharmacodynamically. If concurrent use of a class III antiarrhythmic agent and another drug cannot be avoided or no published studies for that particular drug interaction are available, caution should be exercised and close monitoring of the patient should be performed in order to avoid or minimise the risks associated with a possible adverse drug interaction.

Sudden death accounts for a significant proportion of all death in patients with heart failure. Of currently available therapy, amiodarone and the implantable defibrillator (ICD) appear to have the greatest potential to reduce sudden death in heart failure. In this paper, the currently available information on the relative role of amiodarone and implantable defibrillators (ICD) in heart failure is reviewed.

In the evaluation of patients with ventricular arrhythmias, those patients with asymptomatic ventricular arrhythmias, who usually comprise a low-risk population, have to be differentiated from patients with symptomatic ventricular arrhythmias (presyncopal symptoms, syncope, cardiac arrest). In general, patients with asymptomatic ventricular arrhythmias should not be treated with antiarrhythmic drugs; however, patients with recent myocardial infarction and asymptomatic ventricular arrhythmias, which may indicate an increased risk of sudden death, should undergo further risk stratification, since some of them might benefit from preventive antiarrhythmic therapy with a beta-blocking agent of amiodarone. In contrast to asymptomatic patients, patients with symptomatic ventricular arrhythmias are at high risk for sudden death, and, if functional status does not mandate against active therapy, these patients should undergo coronary angiography and electrophysiologic evaluation. Revascularization procedures and specific antiarrhythmic measures such as antiarrhythmic drug therapy, ablative therapy (surgical resection or transcatheter radiofrequency ablation of the arrhythmogenic focus) or the implantation of a cardioverterdefibrillator (ICD) are frequently needed in such patients. Consequently, in this high-risk population, early referral to a cardiac center with an electrophysiologic laboratory is recommended, whereas it should be strongly mandated against empirical antiarrhythmic drug therapy.

Blood lipid levels were measured in 23 patients with amiodarone associated hypothyroidism (most of them had ischemic heart disease). Abnormalities of lipid spectrum were found in 12 of these patients. All 12 patients were subjected to replacement therapy with l-thyroxine. Compensation of thyroid status was associated with average 12.6 and 12.3% lowering of total and low density lipoprotein cholesterol, respectively. However target levels of low density lipoprotein cholesterol were achieved only in 1 patient. There were no significant changes of high density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides.

Oral amiodarone is a potent antiarrhythmic agent with a slow onset of action. Its electrophysiologic properties following chronic administration are well known, but its acute electrophysiologic actions are poorly defined. The objectives of the present study were to correlate the electrophysiologic actions of intravenous amiodarone in humans with the acute and chronic effects of the drug relative to plasma and tissue concentrations of the drug. In humans (n = 10), 5 mg/kg intravenous amiodarone (serum concentration 6.50 +/- 3.34 micrograms/ml at 10 minutes; 2.13 +/- 0.71 micrograms/ml at 20 minutes, n = 7) increased the AH interval by 16.4% (p less than 0.005), the antegrade effective refractory period (ERP) of the atrioventricular (AV) node by 14.4% (p less than 0.025), and the functional refractory period (FRP) of the AV node by 15.5% (p less than 0.005). The ERP or FRP of the atrium of the right ventricle was not significantly changed; there was no effect on the HV interval or the QT and R-R intervals of the ECG. In rabbits (n = 11) given 10 mg/kg intravenous amiodarone (mean +/- SD serum concentration 0.49 +/- 0.17 micrograms/ml; mean myocardial concentration 7.0 +/- 1.9 micrograms/gm, n = 3), there were no significant effects on the ECG intervals. In isolated rabbit sinoatrial (SA) node, atria, and AV node (three preparations) superfused with 5 X 10(-6)M amiodarone (3.41 micrograms/ml), there was no effect on the action potential duration (APD) or other parameters of the transmembrane potential.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Estimates generated using NONMEM indicated that the clearance of AMD was influenced by BMI, age and daily dosage of AMD. The final pharmacokinetic model was CL (L/h) = 0*16 * TBW * 0.53(AGE >or= 65 ) * 0*78(BMI >or= 25) * DD(0.51), V(d) (L) = 10*2 * TBW, where CL is total body clearance, TBW is total body weight (kg), DD (mg/kg/day) is daily dosage of AMD, AGE (years) >or=65 = 1 for patient was 65 years old or over and 0 otherwise, BMI (kg/m(2)) >or=25 = 1 for patient was 25 kg/m(2) or over and 0 otherwise and V(d) is apparent volume of distribution. The clearance of AMD decreased significantly by 22.3% with a BMI higher than 25 kg/m(2). The clearance of AMD also decreased significantly by 46.9% when patient age was more than 65 years.

Atrial tachyarrhythmias (AT) are the most common cardiac rhythm disturbance. In the present study, we analyzed the cholinergic-adrenergic interaction in the in vitro induction of cholinergic-dependent tachyarrhythmia by high-frequency electric stimulation. Tachyarrhythmia was evoked in isolated rat right atria by trains of electric stimuli. Atrial response was expressed as the tachyarrhythmia induction index (ATI, i.e. the fraction of applied trains that resulted in arrhythmia induction). ATI was reversibly increased by 0.6 microM carbachol (CCh), which also decreased atrial spontaneous rate (ASR). In contrast, 10 nM isoproterenol (ISO), 100 microM tyramine and the phosphodiesterase inhibitor isobutyl-methylxanthine (IBMX, 100 microM) increased ASR and decreased ATI. Amiodarone (AMI, 10 microM) reduced ATI in the presence and absence of CCh. Further CCh addition restored ATI in atria treated with either IBMX or AMI, but not when both compounds were present. Increase in ATI by CCh in atria pretreated with IBMX plus ISO was significantly attenuated by 3 mM NaF. The antagonism between cholinergic muscarinic and beta-adrenergic receptor stimulation (the former facilitating and the latter inhibiting tachyarrhythmia installation) possibly involves regulation of the phosphorylation status of adenosine cyclic 3'-5'-monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent protein kinase substrates. Additionally, cAMP-independent, AMI-sensitive mechanism stimulated by CCh (possibly muscarinic-dependent K(+) current activation) seems to contribute to AT facilitation.

Of the 48,612 patients who accessed the pharmacy in this VA medical center, 17,760 (36.5%) had an active order for simvastatin 40 mg or 80 mg per day, and 92 of these patients (0.52%) also had an active order for amiodarone. These patients were prescribed simvastatin primarily for secondary prevention (88 [95.7%] with coronary artery disease [CAD] as the indication for statin therapy), and were highly controlled with mean (SD) baseline LDL-C of 71 (21) mg per deciliter. The mean (median) duration of therapy on the combination of amiodarone plus simvastatin 40 mg or more per day was 43 (37) months. Of the 92 patients, 26 (28.3%), 35 (38.0%), and 18 (19.6%) patients had 1, 2, or 3 or more additional risk factors for myopathy, respectively. 16 patients were not converted per protocol to an alternate statin (4 were taken off amiodarone, 2 were taken off statin therapy, 6 had the simvastatin dose reduced to 20 mg per day or less, and 4 were converted to an alternate statin off-protocol), and 14 patients did not have follow-up laboratory values. For the 62 patients converted per protocol and with follow-up laboratory values, there were no statistically significant changes in mean lipid or aminotransferase values after conversion. One patient reported symptoms of myalgia after conversion to rosuvastatin; however, the conversion protocol did not require obtaining creatine kinase values.

From 16,164 out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases, 500 adult patients using a single antiarrhythmic drug for shock-resistant VT/VF were enrolled and categorized into 4 groups (73 LID, 47 NIF, 173 AMD-≤150, and 207 AMD-300). Multivariate analyses evaluated the outcomes of NIF, AMD-≤150, or AMD-300 groups versus LID group. Odds ratios (ORs) for survival to admission were 3.21 [95% confidence interval (CI): 1.38-7.44, P < 0.01] in NIF and 3.09 (95% CI: 1.55-6.16, P < 0.01) in AMD-≤150 groups and significantly higher than those of the LID group. However, the OR was 1.78 (95% CI: 0.90-3.51, P = 0.10) in AMD-300 group and was not significant than LID group. ORs for 24-hour survival were 6.68 in NIF, 4.86 in AMD-≤150, and 2.97 in AMD-300, being significantly higher in these groups.

A 62 year old man developed a neuropathy after several months of treatment with amiodarone. The clinical picture was atypical in that it associated a polyradiculoneuritis with cell-protein dissociation and an axial and peripheral cerebellar syndrome. Pathology of muscle and nerve showed dense inclusions in Schwann cell cytoplasm and in pericytes, highly suggestive of fat inclusions. Discontinuation of amiodarone therapy resulted in a slow regression of disorders. Diabetes mellitus developed. Several pathogenic hypotheses are proposed.

Atrial fibrillation is a common occurrence after cardiac surgery and the source of financial expenditure and complications. A critical literature review was undertaken to examine the use of amiodarone therapy to prevent or manage atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery. Evidence strongly suggests that perioperative treatment of cardiac patients with amiodarone may reduce the incidence of atrial fibrillation with minimal adverse effects. Further study is warranted to determine the optimal timing and dosing, for the drug's most cost-effective use.

Amiodarone is a widely used agent for life-threatening arrhythmias. Although amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) is a major adverse effect that can cause recurrence of arrhythmias and exacerbation of heart failure, risk factors for AIT among amiodarone-treated Japanese patients have not been elucidated. Here, we investigated the prevalence and predictive factors for AIT. The study subjects were 225 patients treated with amiodarone between 2008 and 2012, who were euthyroid before amiodarone therapy. All patients with AIT were diagnosed by measurement of thyroid hormones and ultrasonography. Among the 225 subjects, 13 patients (5.8%) developed AIT and all the patients were classified as Type 2 AIT. Baseline features of patients with AIT were not different from those who did not develop AIT, except for age (AIT, 55.1 ± 13.8, non-AIT, 68.1 ± 12.0 years, P < 0.001). Multivariate analyses using the Cox proportional hazard model identified age as the sole determinant of AIT (hazard ratio: 0.927, 95% confidence interval: 0.891-0.964). Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis identified age of 63.5 years as the cutoff value for AIT with sensitivity of 70.3% and specificity of 69.2%. In summary, this study showed that the prevalence of AIT is 5.8% in Japanese patients treated with amiodarone and that young age is a risk factor for AIT.

The patients' weight, initial serum albumin concentration, and baseline INR value influenced their initial response to warfarin. The initial WDI correlated negatively with the initial serum albumin concentration (p < 0.001) and body weight (p < 0.05) and positively with the baseline INR (p < 0.01). The initial WDI of the patients taking amiodarone was significantly higher (mean +/- SD 0.74 +/- 0.34) than that of patients buy cordarone without amiodarone (0.46 +/- 0.22) (p < 0.001). Maintenance doses correlated negatively with the initial warfarin response (p < 0.001) and positively with body weight (p = 0.053).

Iodide released from Amiodarone during a chronic treatment is 100 x higher than food iodide intake. Thyroid adaptation allows normal function but over-adaptation leads to hypothyroidism and hypo-adaptation to thyrotoxicosis. Thyrotoxicosis buy cordarone may also result from follicular disruption. Amiodarone inhibits 5' deiodinase type I and II and hence increases serum T4 and (transiently) TSH and decreases serum T3 concentrations. Perchlorate and corticoids may be useful in the treatment of thyrotoxicosis.

Both groups underwent mitral valve replacement or repair (Cardioblate vs control: 16:8 vs 10:15), had similar gender (male: 33% vs 56%), age (66+/-8 years vs 68+/-9 years), additional aortic valve replacement (7 vs 6 patients), tricuspid annuloplasty (13 vs 13 patients), and CABG (10 vs 16 patients). There was 0% operative mortality, 0% postoperative cerebrovascular accidents, but 2 late deaths in the control group. At discharge, 3- and 12-month follow-up, more patients in the buy cordarone Cardioblate group returned to normal SR compared to control (29%, 57% and 75% vs 20%, 43% and 39%; p=0.030). Return of functional atrial contraction in patients in SR at 1 year was comparable between groups (63% vs 89%, NS), and more likely in non-rheumatic pathology and preoperative AF of shorter duration. The effectiveness of atrial contraction was 36+/-14% vs 43+/-18% of transmitral flow and there was no difference between groups. Amiodarone treatment decreased more in Cardioblate group over time (92%, 55% and 29% vs 52%, 52% and 21%; p=0.003), whereas warfarin decrease was comparable (100%, 100% and 71% vs 100%, 95% and 82%; NS).

Amiodarone hydrochloride was used to treat 19 patients with symptomatic arrhythmias refractory to quinidine sulfate, procainamide hydrochloride, disopyramide phosphate, antazoline hydrochloride, lidocaine hydrochloride, bretylium tosylate, propranolol hydrochloride, phenytoin sodium, and practotol acetanilide given to the limit of tolerance. In 17 patients, attacks were buy cordarone completely controlled. Arrhythmias treated successfully included recurrent supraventricular tachycardias, recurrent supraventricular tachycardias with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, and refractory ventricular arrhythmias including recurrent ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation complicating acute coronary heart disease. Control was confirmed by continuous ECG monitoring both in the hospital and when ambulatory and was maintained for up to four years. Attacks of supraventricular tachycardia were reduced from 7.9/mo to one attack every 53.5 months on amiodarone. Hospital admissions for arrhythmias were reduced from 34 the year before treatment to none the year after. Therefore, amiodarone is an excellent drug for control of many refractory arrhythmias, but two patients with recurrent atrial fibrillation were refractory to this treatment.

Myocardial infarction represents a crossroads in the natural history of coronary artery disease. The prognosis is determined by the severity of coronary artery disease, infarct size (and hence ejection fraction), and age of the patient. After infarction, patients may remain symptomless, or suffer angina, silent ischemia, reinfarction, heart failure or sudden death. Hence patient management after infarction includes (1) estimation of risk, (2) the use of stress tests to detect ischemia and rhythm disorders, (3) PTCA or bypass if required and (4) medical therapy. Cardiac catheterization is indicated in patients with angina or silent ischemia, non-Q wave infarction or large infarctus; its use is less well established in patients without ischemia and left ventricular dysfunction, but this indication is nevertheless increasingly accepted. PTCA is primarily utilized in patients with single or two vessel disease, while coronary bypass surgery is indicated in patients with left main or three vessel disease. All these measures are designed to improve symptoms and prognosis. For secondary prevention medical therapy should be used to treat cardiovascular risk factors (antihypertensive drugs, lipid-lowering drugs etc.), to inhibit platelets (aspirin, ticlopidine) or coagulation (coumarins), to block neurohumoral activation (betablocker, ACE-inhibitors), for vasoconstriction (calcium channel blockers, nitrates) and to suppress arrhythmias. The large number of drugs requires reasoned use depending on the risk profile of the individual patient. Cardiovascular buy cordarone risk factors should be treated appropriately. Platelet inhibitors should be given to all patients except those with atrial fibrillation or large ventricles (coumarins). Betablockers reduce mortality, reinfarction and sudden death after infarction and hence should be used if no contraindications exist. ACE-inhibitors are particularly effective in improving symptoms and prognosis in patients with impaired left ventricular function. Calcium antagonists should be used with caution and only in patients with normal left ventricular function. Nitrates are primarily effective in improving symptoms in patients with angina or heart failure. Antiarrhythmic drugs (amiodarone) are only useful in patients with complex arrhythmias. Digitalis has been shown to improve symptoms in patients with heart failure, while other inotropic drugs are virtually no longer used.

1. Atrial fibrillation is an inefficient cardiac rhythm associated with impaired exercise tolerance, exertional dyspnoea, palpitation and a substantial risk of thromboembolism. 2. The first decision in management is to consider cardioversion which can be achieved in suitable cases electrically, or pharmacologically with a class Ic antiarrhythmic buy cordarone drug like flecainide or propafenone. 3. Prophylaxis in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation is best achieved with a class Ic drug or a class III drug such as sotalol or amiodarone. 4. Control of ventricular rate in chronic atrial fibrillation can be achieved by pharmacological manipulation of the atrioventricular node by digoxin alone, or in combination with the calcium channel blockers verapamil or diltiazem, or beta-adrenoceptor blockers with intrinsic sympathomimetic activity like pindolol or xamoterol. 5. In view of the considerable risk of thromboembolism in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation anticoagulation or at least treatment with aspirin should be considered.

One hundred fifteen patients [69 men (60%); mean age 52 +/- 10 years] with chagasic cardiomyopathy presenting with symptomatic VT were studied after loading with Class III antiarrhythmic drugs; 78 had a history of sustained VT, and 37 with symptomatic nonsustained VT had sustained VT induced at baseline electrophysiologic study. All but 12 patients also underwent baseline electrophysiologic study. Mean left ventricular ejection fraction was 0.49 +/- 0.14. Based on results of electrophysiologic study after loading with Class III drugs, patients were divided into three groups: group 1 (n = 23) had no sustained VT induced; group 2 (n = 45) had only tolerated sustained VT induced; and group 3 (n = 47) had hemodynamically unstable sustained VT induced. After a mean follow-up of 52 +/- 32 months, total mortality rate was 39.1%; it was significantly higher in group 3 than in groups 2 and 1 [69%, 22.2%, and 26%, respectively, P < 0.0001, hazard ratio (HR) 10.4, 95% confidence interval (CI) 3.8, 21.8]. There was no significant difference in total mortality rate Voltaren Pills Dosage between groups 1 and 2 (P = 0.40, HR 1.5, 95% CI 0.75, 4.58). Cardiac mortality and sudden cardiac death rates also were higher in group 3 patients.

Rhabdomyolysis is a well known side effect of statin therapy. Several drugs may increase its risk by drug-drug interactions. In particular, patients with heart disease receive more and more different compounds to cope with all the pathomechanisms involved and may therefore be of high risk for side effects. We report a case of rhabdomyolysis in a patient with heart failure on a multi-drug regimen caused by a drug interaction between chronic statin therapy (simvastatin), amiodarone and newly administrated digitoxin. The patient recovered fully after cessation of simvastatin therapy, the other drugs were given continuously. Potential mechanisms of this event are discussed. Most interesting in this case is that rhabdomyolysis occurred only after starting digitoxin after long-term therapy with the statin.

Amiodarone, antiarrhythmic drug of III class is used in patients with supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, often with coexisting congestive heart failure. Side effects of amiodarone treatment are observed in approximately 75% of patients. Most dangerous are the symptoms of amiodarone pulmonary toxicity occuring in 2-17% of patients. We present a patient with COPD, in whom interstitial pneumonitis with radiologic features of organizing pneumonia developed after one year of amiodaron treatment due to supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. The drug was stopped and steroids were introduced due to marked respiratory insufficiency. Regression of pulmonary symptoms and improvement of ventilatory parameters were observed after 3 months of treatment. Pathogenesis, diagnostic procedures and current methods of treatment of this jatrogenic disease are discussed.

This article provides information and a commentary on trials relevant to the pathophysiology, prevention and treatment of heart failure, presented at the Heart Rhythm Society meeting in San Francisco, USA and the Heart Failure Association meeting of the European Society of Cardiology which was held in Milan, Italy in June 2008. Unpublished reports should be considered as preliminary data, as analyses may change in the final publication. The ATHENA study showed that dronedarone reduced the incidence of the composite outcome of cardiovascular hospitalisation or death, in patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter, 29% of whom had a history of heart failure, compared with placebo. The URGENT study demonstrated that treatment of acute heart failure with standard therapy, including intravenous diuretics and nitrates, leads to a rapid resolution of breathlessness in the sitting position but that orthopnoea often persists. The INH study showed that a disease management programme could reduce mortality compared to usual care but not hospitalisation rates. The HEART study failed to recruit its planned number of patients, although it is the largest randomised trial of revascularisation in heart failure reported to date. At a median follow-up of 5 years no difference in mortality was observed but the study lacked power to provide a conclusive result. The selective myosin activator CK-1827452 produced a concentration dependent increase in systolic ejection time, stroke volume and fractional shortening in patients with heart failure compared to placebo.

A 61-year-old man with past medical history significant for advanced congestive heart failure from ischemic cardiomyopathy, status post LVAD (HeartMate II; Thoratec Corporation, Pleasanton, CA) placement 2009 as destination therapy, presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with implantable cardiac defibrillators firing four times that morning. While in the care of Emergency Medical Services, he was in ventricular tachycardia, and they gave him a bolus of amiodarone 150 mg intravenously prior to arrival in the ED. He was reportedly alert and oriented without any chest pain on arrival to the ED, where an electrocardiogram was obtained showing polymorphic ventricular tachycardia. WHY SHOULD AN EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN BE AWARE OF THIS?: Emergency physicians must be familiar with the atypical presentations of potentially lethal dysrhythmias in this patient population. They must also be familiar with the major adverse events after LVAD implantation. These include device malfunction, cardiac dysrhythmias, bleeding, thromboembolism, neurological events, and infection. The causes of device malfunction can include thrombus formation with hemolysis, mechanical failure of the impeller, and driveline lead fractures with electric failure. Although time is critical in the heart failure patient with an LVAD failure or complication, expert consultation with cardiology or the LVAD specialist should occur when possible.
