Abstract
One day after childbirth, a 29-year-old woman had several episodes of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation. She was rescued by an internal cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) which she had received 14 years ago, after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, without recurrences until now. The electrocardiogram showed a normal QT interval, and ventricular premature beats, which seemed to arise from the same site. This case report illustrates that, even after years with freedom of ICD therapy, depleted devices still have to be replaced.
