Bundle branch reentrant tachycardia treated by transvenous catheter ablation of the right bundle branch



Bundle branch reentrant tachycardia treated by transvenous catheter ablation of the right bundle branch



Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology 12(1 Pt 2): 258-261



Recurrent episodes of ventricular tachycardia not responding to medical treatment occurred in a 56-year-old man. Electrophysiological investigation showed ventricular tachycardia due to bundle branch reentry. Using a method similar to catheter ablation of the atrioventricular junction, ablation of the right bundle branch was performed by an electrical shock of 250 joules. While before the ablation ventricular tachycardia occurred several times a day and its induction by programmed ventricular stimulation was facilitated by the administration of antiarrhythmic drugs, no initiation of ventricular tachycardia was possible after ablation of the right bundle branch. Over a follow-up of 30 months the patient has not suffered from tachycardia and the right bundle branch block persists.
