Abstract

FRANGINI S, Patricia et al. Radiofrequency ablation of ventricular tachycardia in a patient after surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot: Case report. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2005, vol.133, n.6, pp.675-680. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872005000600009.

Ventricular tachycardia is one of the most feared complications after surgical repair of Tetralogy of Fallot and it is associated with sudden death. We report a 26 years old female with a history of surgical repair of Tetralogy of Fallot at age of 4 year-old, who developed sustained ventricular tachycardia despite antiarrhythmic drugs. She was successfully treated with radiofrequency catheter ablation. Radiofrequency catheter ablation is a valid treatment for these patients

Keywords : Heart defects, congenita; Radiofrequency catheter ablation; Tetralogy of Fallot.
