Abstract

A 21‐year‐old man with aborted sudden death developed bundle‐branch reentry tachycardia at electrophysiologic study. Ablation of the right bundle branch was performed in an attempt to eliminate the recurrence of ventricular arrhythmia. The clinical arrhythmia was no longer inducible; however, a second type of ventricular tachycardia of a different mechanism and origin was induced. Following a new clinical episode of ventricular tachycardia with hemodynamic deterioration, an automatic implantable cardioverter and defibrillator was implanted.
