  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In 1970, a 19 year-old man was diagnosed as having coarctation of the aorta (CoA). But the patient and his family rejected further examination for CoA and high blood pressure was treated after that time. When the patient was 37 years old, he was admitted to our hospital because of congestive heart failure. During the 2nd admission for determining the operability of CoA in December, 1988, non-sustained ventricular tachycardia was detected. Immediately, intravenous administration of lidocaine or/and mexiletine were started. However, cardiac arrest occured.
