Relapsing Brucellosis Due to Infection of Implanted Cardiac Device

Issue:

Pages: 
395–6

The Editor,

Sir,

Involvement of implanted electronic cardiac devices by haematogenous seeding of brucellosis is quite rare. To our knowledge nearly 10 cases of pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) infection and a few cases of transvenous lead endocarditis caused by brucella has been described in the literature .

Positional Atrial Sense Failure in a Ratedrop Pacemaker Causing Frequent Tachycardia Attacks

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.573

The Editor,

 Sir,

 Selected patients with Cardio-inhibitory reflex syncope may benefit from cardiac pacemakers; particularly rate-drop response algorithm may decline syncope episodes. But sometimes inappropriate rate-drop responses may present challenging diagnostic problems.

Recurrent Torsades de Pointes Due to Amiodarone Toxicity Treated Successfully with Lidocaine

Issue: 
DOI:

The Editor,

Sir,

Amiodarone is a potent antiarrhythmic agent that is used to treat ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. Proarrythmias due to amiodarone therapy is rare. We discuss a case who had amiodarone-induced incessant Torsades de Pointes (TdP), that could only be suppressed by lidocaine.
