Abstract

Recurrent ventricular fibrillation was observed in a 29-year-old Vietnamese man who did not exhibit structural heart disease. The patient's ECG showed prominent J (Osborn) waves and ST segment elevation in the inferior leadsthat were not associated with hypothermia, serum electrolyte disturbance, or myocardial ischemia, Rate-dependent change in the amplitude of J waves and ST segment elevation also were observed. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) was implanted. Adjunctive treatment with amiodarone reduced J wave amplitude, preventing ventricular fibrillation and ICD shocks. Prominent J waves and ST segment elevation in the inferior leads may serve as an important diagnostic sign to detect high-risk individuals with a historyof unexplained syncope, ICD implantation plus amiodarone is the treatment of choice.
