Abstract

VEGA, Julián et al. Electrical storm in Brugada syndrome successfully treated with isoproterenol. Report of a case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.10, pp.1340-1343. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872013001000016.

We report a 22-year-old male who experienced several episodes of syncope within a timeframe of few hours. In the emergency room, multiple ventricular fibrillation episodes where documented along with a type 1 Brugada ECG pattern. Isoproterenol in continuous infusion was started, normalizing the ECG and avoiding further arrhythmia recurrences. The patient was implanted with an automated defibrillator and discharged 3 days after admission.

Keywords : Brugada Syndrome; Isoproterenol; Syncope; Ventricular Fibrillation.
