Successful Treatment for Recurrent Ventricular Fibrillation duringResection of Thymic Carcinoma: A Case Report
Background: Ventricular fibrillation during surgical procedure is an emergency and appropriate treatment is required immediately. Ventricular fibrillation during resection of thymic carcinoma is rarely reported in the literature. Our objective was to report a successful rescue for recurrent ventricular fibrillation during the procedure of thymic car- cinoma resection. Methods: A 59-year-old female patient was admitted to hospital with an irregular fever for 2 years. CT showed an aggressive neoplasm in the anterior mediastinum. A surgical procedure was carried out for the patient on 8th March 2012. Recurrent ventricular fibrillation happened when the neoplasm was completely removed, and an effec- tive rescue was implementing at once. Results: The patient was completely cured with no sequela. Conclusions: The case demonstrates that an active and rational treatment for accidentally ventricular fibrillation during a surgical proce- dure rewarded with a satisfied outcome.
