Abstract

In several cases with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (VF), VF was initiated by premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) from the Purkinje system. However, the precise characteristics of the Purkinje activity in patients with idiopathic VF remain unclear. We performed an electrophysiological study in a patient with idiopathic VF and examined the correlation between the Purkinje potential and the incidence of PVCs/polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PMVT). In this case of idiopathic VF, the Purkinje activity caused multiform PVCs and PMVT. The The Purkinje activity and slow conduction of Purkinje fibers are associated with the occurrence of multiform PVCs and PMVT.
