abstract

  • Patients with outflow tract arrhythmias can be differentiated based on the subtype of arrhythmia. However, the observation that approximately 50% of patients with NSVT and approximately 5% of patients with PVCs have inducible sustained ventricular tachycardia that behaves in an identically unique manner to those who present with sustained ventricular tachycardia (e.g., adenosine-sensitive) suggests that rather than representing distinct entities, outflow arrhythmias may be considered a continuum of a single mechanism.
