A 33 year-old woman was referred to our hospital for further treatment of ventricular tachycardia (VT). During treatment with amiodarone (200 mg/day), clinical VT at the cycle length of 510 ms was induced. During the VT, rapid ventricular pacing was repeated at progressively shorter cycle lengths after a decrement of 10 ms steps. The VT was entrained by the… (More)
