Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia Type 5


Presentation

  • […] clinical presentation of sudden death or aborted cardiac arrest.[cohesionphenomics.com]
  • Second ED Presentation The patient presented to the ED again 5 days later : After moderate exercise, he presented in acute distress at a heart rate of 180, but with fewer perfused beats. Here are his ECGs: Wide complex tachycardia.[hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com]
  • Nongenotyped CPVT probands are predominantly women and present later in life.[acc.org]

Workup

  • (See Workup ). Accelerated idioventricular rhythm, sometimes termed slow VT, is a variant of VT that produces a rate of 60-120 beats/min.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • In an emergency, treatment for ventricular tachycardia may include: CPR electrical defibrillation electric shock antiarrhythmic medication Long-term treatment may include oral antiarrhythmic medication.[healthline.com]
  • This will be a single-blind (blinded subjects) randomized cross-over study, in which each patient will receive treatment A (flecainide or placebo) for at least 3 months and, after a 1 week wash-out, treatment B (placebo or flecainide) for at least 3 months[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • Management and treatment Beta blockers (nadolol and propranolol) are the first treatment option for patients with CPVT and the maximum tolerated dose should be administered to control arrhythmias.[orpha.net]
  • P -values are reported for significant differences between treatment (e.g. isoproterenol) and baseline (i.e. no treatment), not for differences between CPVT and control CMs.[dmm.biologists.org]
  • Types of treatment A cardiologist will treat your child’s CPVT. Treatment is done to help prevent and treat the abnormal heart rhythm. Treatment may include: Medicine. Most people with CPVT take a type of medicine called a beta-blocker.[myhealth.ucsd.edu]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis Although CPVT is a severe and often deadly disease, early diagnosis and proper treatment can greatly increase life expectancy.[orpha.net]
  • Prognosis The prognosis in patients with ventricular tachycardia (VT) varies with the specific cardiac process, but it is predicted best by left ventricular function.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Prognosis – Genotype-phenotype relationships have been established in some forms of cardiac disease.[gps.wustl.edu]

Etiology

  • Etiology The two genes responsible for CPVT that have been discovered to date, are the cardiac ryanodine receptor ( RyR2 ) gene, which is the cause of CPVT in approximately 55% to 65% of cases, and the cardiac calsequestrin gene ( CASQ2 ), seen much less[orpha.net]
  • […] in the literature that I could find; the ACC/AHA guidelines on dysrhythmias have not, apparently, been updated since last published in 2006 ): If it is a child with his/her first presentation, you may be presented only with polymorphic VT of unknown etiology[hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com]
  • (See Etiology .) VT can be classified as sustained or nonsustained, with a generally accepted cutoff of 30 seconds. VT is further classified according to the electrocardiographic (ECG) appearance.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • We conclude that mutations in FKBP1B, ATP2A2 and SLC8A1 appear subsidiary in the pathogenesis of frequent VPCs of unknown etiology in Finnish patients. RyR2 involvement in potentially malignant frequent resting VPCs requires further clarification.[bmcmedgenet.biomedcentral.com]

Pathophysiology

  • The present study provides additional support for the pathophysiologic role of the RYR2 channel in CPVT.[nature.com]
  • The pathophysiology of CASQ2-related CPVT may be related to the loss of calcium buffering capability, and indirect destabilization of the RyR channel opening process.[centogene.com]
  • Despite recent advances in genetics, pathophysiology, and clinical characteristics of CPVT, further research in unraveling molecular basis and clinical translation should be performed.[heraldopenaccess.us]
  • The pathophysiology of CPVT is very different from Long QT syndrome. CPVT, unlike Torsade, is worsened with tachycardia. See this post for management of Torsade.[hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com]

Prevention

  • Professor Drezner is a leading authority on the role of the automatic external defibrillator in preventing sudden cardiac death.[books.google.com]
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are used for prevention of sudden death in patients with CPVT.[austinpublishinggroup.com]
  • For polymorphic VT due to acquired long QT (Torsade de Pointe), isoproterenol is indicated to increase the sinus rate and prevent further torsade. However, this makes CPVT worse.[hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com]
  • The goal of treatment is to correct the heart rhythm immediately and to prevent future episodes.[healthline.com]
