Abstract

Torsade de pointes is a particular life-threatening polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmia that typically occurs in the setting of marked QT prolongation. The arrhythmia is most often due to therapy with drugs which prolong cardiac repolarization (especially class IA and class III antiarrhythmic agents) and/or electrolyte disturbances. This article discusses criteria which are presently used to allow a differentiation between torsade de pointes and other forms of polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmias not associated with prolongation of repolarization. This is clinically of utmost importance, since misdiagnosis may have fatal consequences for the patient.
