Abstract

A 68‐year‐old white male underwent permanent pacemaker implantation with an atrial synchronous ventricular inhibited pulse generator (Medtronic model 2409) because of syncope and abnormal H‐V interval of 70 ms. Paroxysmal bouts of pacemaker associated tachycardia were subsequently recorded on several occasions, initiated and terminated by spontaneous ventricular premature beats. The mechanism for the occurrence of the tachyarrhythmia is discussed in detail and the functional characteristics of the pulse generator are described. Replacement of the unit with a different pacer device prevented further occurrence of the arrhythmia. (PACE, Vol. 5, March‐April, 1982)
