Abstract

His bundle tachycardia is a rare arrhythmia in infants and children and is resistant to therapy. There is now sufficient evidence from reported cases and a further patient reported below to suggest that drug management of this arrhythmia is a reasonable alternative to His bundle ablation with life-long pacing from infancy.

  • His bundle tachycardia
  • verapamil
  • amiodarone
  • flecainide
