BACKGROUND It is well recognized that the mechanism of idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) arising from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) is mostly due to cyclic AMP-mediated triggered activity. The mechanism of VT arising from the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) has not been well clarified whether it is the same as VT of RVOT. METHODS We studied autonomic modulations and pharmacological interventions on VT/premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) from LVOT to explore its… CONTINUE READING
