Bei der postoperativen junktionalen ektopen Tachykardie (JET) handelt es sich um eine potentiell lebensbedrohliche tachykarde Herzrhythmusstörung, die meistens nach operativer Korrektur angeborener Herzfehler auftritt. Die Arrhythmie selbst sowie ihre Behandlung hat bedeutsame klinische Auswirkung auf den postoperativen Verlauf der Patienten. Im Allgemeinen handelt es sich bei der JET um eine selbst-limitierende Tachykardie, die innerhalb einer Woche sistiert. Allerdings tritt die Tachykardie… Expand
Catheter ablation of junctional ectopic tachycardia in children, with preservation of atrioventricular conduction
TLDR
Three consecutive children, aged 9, 7 and 12 years respectively, underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation for junctional ectopic tachycardia, after having failed antiarrhythmic drug therapy. Expand
Junctional ectopic tachycardia: Current strategies for diagnosis and management
TLDR
This manuscript reviews the literature on the incidence and risk factors of both forms of JET and current strategies for the diagnosis and management of each form. Expand
Risk Factors and Outcome of Post Fallot Repair Junctional Ectopic Tachycardia (JET)
TLDR
The occurrence of JET remains an important complication during the initial postoperative period by increasing mechanical ventilation time, the need for inotropic support, and prolonging the length of ICU and hospital stay. Expand
Management of postoperative junctional ectopic tachycardia in pediatric patients: a survey of 30 centers in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland
TLDR
From center to center, the treatment of postoperative JET may vary substantially and future work should focus on those treatment modalities where a high rate of variation is found. Expand

TLDR
Junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET) often occurs in the setting of surgery for congenital heart disease and can be diagnosed based on AV dissociation noted in superior vena cava/ascending aorta Doppler flow recordings, as well as electrocardiographic diagnosis. Expand
The prevalence and outcome of junctional ectopic tachycardia in pediatric cardiac surgery
TLDR
Longer surgical procedure demonstrated in this study by longer CPB time and longer ACC time contributed to the overall risk of developing JET, and Developing JET was associated with worse outcomes. Expand
Ivabradine as an Adjunct for Refractory Junctional Ectopic Tachycardia Following Pediatric Cardiac Surgery: A Preliminary Study
TLDR
Oral ivabradine has the potential to be used as an adjunct to amiodarone in the treatment of JET in infants after surgery for congenital heart disease, and achieved rate reduction and eventual conversion to sinus rhythm. Expand
Ischemia-reperfusion destabilizes rhythmicity in immature atrioventricular pacemakers: A predisposing factor for postoperative arrhythmias in neonate rabbits.
BACKGROUND Postoperative arrhythmias such as junctional ectopic tachycardia and atrioventricular block are serious postoperative complications for children with congenital heart disease. WeExpand
Junctional ectopic tachycardia after congenital heart surgery.
TLDR
JET is the most frequent arrhythmia during and after congenital cardiac surgery, and the ECG is the only available method to diagnose JET, demonstrating inverted P-waves and VA-dissociation. Expand
Junctional ectopic tachycardia after surgery for congenital heart disease: incidence, risk factors and outcome.
TLDR
JET was diagnosed in 51 patients and, compared with controls, these patients had longer cardiopulmonary bypass time and higher level of troponin-T, possibly reflecting the extent of surgical trauma, however, the tachycardia was not an independent risk factor for death. Expand

TLDR
The use of ECMO, as a first line of defence, is suitable for the emergency support of patients with JET because of the ease of support of circulation and precise control of hypothermia. Expand

TLDR
Electrolytes and acid-based balance should be checked in all patients with an arrhythmia and optimized if necessary and patients who fail to recover an adequate sinus rhythm or atrioventricular conduction within 7 to 10 days should be treated with a pacemaker. Expand

TLDR
Early recognition, precise diagnosis, and timely therapy can be very effective in avoiding adverse hemodynamic consequences of postoperative arrhythmias. Expand
Intravenous flecainide for the treatment of junctional ectopic tachycardia after surgery for congenital heart disease.
TLDR
Fleckcainide can exert a fast antiarrhythmic effect on postoperative JET, and its infusion can be modulated to maintain the concentration within the therapeutic range, thus avoiding toxicity. Expand
