Learn About Paroxysmal Ventricular Fibrillation

What is the definition of Paroxysmal Ventricular Fibrillation?
A rare, genetic, cardiac rhythm disease characterized by ventricular fibrillation in the absence of any structural or functional heart disease, or known repolarization abnormalities. The presence of J waves is associated with a higher risk of nocturnal ventricular fibrillation events and a higher risk of recurrence.

A Danish Study to Assess the Efficacy of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease Resuscitated From Ventricular Fibrillation Who Receive Complete Revascularization

Summary: DanICD is a randomized, controlled study to with the aim to assess whether there is a benefit of ICD-implantation in patients with coronary artery disease (including acute myocardial infarction), who survive cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation/sustained ventricular tachycardia and undergo revascularization and with an LVEF above 35%.

Quinidine Versus Verapamil in Short-coupled Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation: an Open-label, Randomized Crossover Pilot Trial

Summary: Short-coupled idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (IVF) is a rare subtype of idiopathic ventricular fibrillation that is characterized by ventricular fibrillation (VF) or polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PVT) initiated by a short-coupled premature ventricular contraction (PVC). Although patients are protected from sudden cardiac death by an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), additio...
