  1. Financial audit of antitachycardia pacing for the control of recurrent supraventricular tachycardia.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To assess the financial implications of antitachycardia pacing in patients with frequent supraventricular tachycardia. patients-Intertach pacemakers were implanted in 25 patients (mean age 47 years, five men): 22 had atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia.

    The patients had failed a mean of 4.9 (range zero to eight) drugs and had been admitted to hospital 3.7 (zero to 31) times over a symptomatic period of 13.9 years (two months to 54 years).

    Results

    The mean admission time for implantation was 2.8 (two to seven) days.

    One patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome subsequently underwent surgery.
