Termination of Ventricular Fibrillation Attacks after Acute Myocardial Infarction by Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

We present a patient with acute myocardial infarction, by whom recurrent attacks of ventricular fibrillation 15 days after the infarction appeared. All attacks had to be terminated by defibrillation. Various antiarrhythmic drugs were ineffective in preventing recurrent ventricular fibrillation, but the attacks ceased after coronary artery bypass grafting.
