Synopsis: 
This study investigated the importance of epicardial fat-tissue round the right coronary artery, highly sensitive C-reactive protein and left atrial volume index on recurrence of atrial fibrillation after cryoballoon ablation.

The Editor,

Sir,

Selected patients with cardio-inhibitory reflex syncope may benefit from cardiac pacemakers, particularly ratedrop response algorithm may reduce syncope episodes.

A Rare Case of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy Co-existing with Isolated Left Ventricular Non-compaction

Pages: 
256-8

INTRODUCTION

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy is a rare heart-muscle disorder characterized by progressive replacement of right ventricular myocardium by fibrofatty tissue. Noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium is also rare congenital cardiomyopathy, characterized by an arrest in intrauterine endomyocardial morphogenesis. We present an extremely rare patient who presented with incessant ventricular tachycardia and who had both of these two cardiomyopathies at the same time.

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

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.
