Sustained uniform monomorphic ventricular tachycardia is usually due to abnormalities of conduction, including coronary artery disease and right ventricular dysplasia. These conduction abnormalities are due to non-uniform anisotropy which is characterized by fragmented electrograms. Less is known about the pathophysiologic substrate of sustained ventricular… CONTINUE READING
