BACKGROUND The most common form of idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) is repetitive monomorphic VT (RMVT), which is characterized by frequent ventricular ectopy and salvos of nonsustained VT with intervening sinus rhythm. Unlike most other forms of idiopathic VT, this tachycardia typically occurs at rest and is nonsustained. The mechanism of RMVT is undefined. Because of a common site of origin, the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), we hypothesized that RMVT is mechanistically… CONTINUE READING
