11). Because the reentrant circuit is large (involving the AV node, the His-Purkinje system, the ventricular myocardium, the bypass tract, and the atrial myocardium), it is termed a macroreentrant circuit. Also, because the circuit consists of several types of tissue, it can be attacked on many levels by many different kinds of drugs—drugs that affect the AV node, the bypass tract, the ventricular myocardium, or the atrial myocardium. Intra-atrial reentry Intra-atrial reentry accounts for only a small percentage of arrhythmias presenting as PAT.

The implantable defibrillator is the mainstay of therapy for patients with Brugada syndrome. 4 Clinical features of uncommon ventricular tachycardias Idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia Younger patients, no structural heart disease Inducible VT with RBBB, superior axis morphology Responds to beta blockers and calcium-channel blockers Both reentry and triggered activity have been postulated as mechanisms Right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia (repetitive monomorphic VT) Younger patients, no structural heart disease VT originates in RV outflow tract; has LBBB, inferior axis morphology; often not inducible during EP testing Responds to beta blockers, calcium blockers, and transcatheter RF ablation Postulated to be due to automaticity or triggered automaticity Ventricular tachycardia associated with right ventricular dysplasia Younger patients with RV dysplasia (portions of RV replaced by fibrous tissue) LBBB ventricular tachycardia; almost always inducible during EP testing Treatment similar to treatment of reentrant VT in setting of coronary artery disease Bundle branch reentry Patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and intraventricular conduction abnormality Rapid VT with LBBB morphology; reentrant circuit uses RBB in downward direction and LBB in upward direction Can be cured by RF ablation of RBB EP, electrophysiologic; LBB, left bundle branch; LBBB, left bundle branch block; RBB, right bundle branch; RBBB, right bundle branch block; RV, right ventricle; VT, ventricular tachycardia.

The vagolytic effect is important clinically when treating atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter; enhanced AV nodal conduction caused by quinidine can lead to a more rapid ventricular response, unless AV nodal blocking agents are also given. No significant myocardial depression occurs with quinidine. Therapeutic uses Quinidine is moderately effective in treating both atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Approximately 50% of patients treated with quinidine for atrial fibrillation remain in sinus rhythm after 1 year.
