Abstract

Invasive cardiac pacing has proved useful in the induction and termination of reentrant sustained tachycardias. In one of our two cases, programmed ventricular extrastimulation was used to induce sustained ventricular tachycardia from the endocardial surface of the right ventricle. Induced ventricular tachycardia was terminoted by burst ventricular pacing with an external cardiac pacemaker. In our second patient, external pacing was effective at inducing and terminating sustained supraventricular tachycardia. These patients illustrate that the principles of terminating sustained reentrant tachycardia with invasive pacing may also apply to noninvasive external pacing. The usefulness of this approach in treating reentrant tachycardias needs further evaluation.
