Spontaneous torsade de pointes and ventricular fibrillation in a dog during pacemaker implantation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Torsade de pointes is an unusual complication seen in dogs during pacemaker
implantation, although ventricular fibrillation has been previously reported. This case report describes torsade de pointes in a dog during pacemaker implantation that degenerated into ventricular fibrillation, and discusses the possible contributory factors. It also illustrates the relevance of a pre-emptive resuscitation plan and how this might have affected the outcome in the patient.
