Abstract

One of the main reason of hospitalization are arrhythmias and conduction disorders, exceptionally rarely they may have a genetic basis. Muscular dystrophy Emery-Dreifuss is a genetic disease in which the image of muscular atrophy and abnormal heart rhythm and conduction disturbances, which often require immediate intervention. Characteristic of patients with muscular dystrophy Emery-Dreifuss is the presence of the absence of the electrical activity of the atrial (atrial standstill, atrial paralysis), which is caused by atrial muscle fibrosis, as well as the conduction system. The paper presents a patient with suspected Emery’ego-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy in which besides conduction disturbances requiring pacemaker implantation occurred as complex ventricular arrhythmias, which required the extension of the CRT-P to CRT-D.
