Ventricular tachycardia in infancy: evidence for a reentrant mechanism.
Ventricular tachycardia is unusual in infancy. Three infants are described in whom this arrhythmia was documented by electrophysiologic studies. The ability to start and terminate this rhythm by critically timed premature ventricular stimulation suggests a reentrant mechanism. All three patients have remained free of arrhythmias on oral propranolol therapy.
