Abstract

Ventricular storms and fibrillation are potentially lethal arrhythmias with limited treatment options. Failed catheter ablation is associated with a fourfold maortality increase in this population. Stereotactic body radiotherapy has been proposed as last resort. We report a patient in whom radiotherapy was safely performed leading to the elimination of arrhythmias
