What you'll learn

Although ventricular arrhythmias are most often related to structural heart diseases such as coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathies, a subset of ventricular arrhythmias typically occur in hearts without any structural abnormalities. These include both idiopathic ventricular tachycardias (VTs) and channelopathies, the latter caused by genetically inherited ion channel defects. read more »»

The presentation of ventricular arrhythmias in the structurally normal heart can range from premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) to sudden cardiac death due to ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF). Learn more about this type of ventricular arrhythmias, its diagnosis, and treatment using an innovative case-based approach in this course designed by Medvarsity and Dosily.
