Abstract

Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) -DDD for arrhythmogenic heart disease of unknown etiology, with the induction of ventricular tachycardia by the right ventricle (RV) of the shock electrode. The arrhythmia generated by the ICD electrode itself was the cause of multiple episodes with appropriate anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) and shock therapy. The etiology of the arrhythmia was confirmed by electrophysiological study and successful treatment was performed with ablation, without the need for surgical repositioning of the electrode.
