Abstract

The urgent coronarography is a very important diagnostic method for confirmation or exclusion critical stenosis of the coronary artery in patients with ventricular arrhythmia. We present a case of 68-year-old patient, after myocardial infarction, with ventricular tachycardia. After coronarography and evaluation of the left main coronary artery stenosis, the patient was qualified to a cardiosurgery revascularization. Several months of follow up after coronary artery bypass grafting didn’t reveal any ventricular arrhythmia.
