Example text

Unfortunately, it is the very same mechanism that produces an antiarrhythmic effect that causes antiarrhythmic drugs to also produce a proarrhythmic effect. Proarrhythmia is therefore not a bizarre, inexplicable, idiosyncratic, or rare side effect of antiarrhythmic drugs. Proarrhythmia is an entirely predictable, inherent property of antiarrhythmic drugs. Since antiarrhythmia and proarrhythmia occur by the same mechanism, one cannot have one effect without the other. Proarrhythmia is a fairly common occurrence, but it was only poorly recognized until the late 1980s.

Two fairly distinct clinical syndromes are caused by ventricular triggered activity: catechol-dependent arrhythmias and pause-dependent arrhythmias. In each syndrome, the resultant ventricular arrhythmias are similar. They are the classically polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmias generally referred to as torsades de pointes. Catechol-dependent triggered arrhythmias. 16a). DADs are seen in susceptible patients in the setting of digitalis intoxication and cardiac ischemia. They are also seen in certain patients who have a congenital form of QT prolongation associated with what is thought to be an imbalance in the sympathetic innervation of the heart, with predominant input coming from the left stellate ganglia—stimulation of which can reproduce DADs.

If the EAD reaches the threshold potential of the cardiac cell, another action potential is generated and an arrhythmia occurs. 3). 3 Drugs that can cause torsades de pointes Class I and Class III antiarrhythmic drugs Quinidine Procainamide Disopyramide Propafenone Sotalol Amiodarone Bretylium Ibutilide Tricyclic and tetracyclic antidepressants Amitriptyline Imipramine Doxepin Maprotiline Phenothiazines Thioridazine Chlorpromazine Antibiotics Erythromycin Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole Others Bepridil Lidoflazine Probucol Haloperidol Chloral hydrate 32 Chapter 1 It appears that some finite subset of the apparently normal population is susceptible to developing EADs.
