Preemptive cardiac resynchronization therapy to prevent cardiac arrest in peripartum cardiomyopathy: a case report.
Anesth Pain Intens Care Jan ;24(3):358-61.
Select patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy are candidates for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) due to the increased risk for life threatening arrhythmias and sudden death. We present a case of peripartum cardiomyopathy awaiting CRT placement who suffered cardiac arrest during the surgical dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure for pregnancy termination.
