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

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

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.
