TRENDS AND OUTCOMES FOLLOWING STELLATE GANGLION BLOCK FOR VENTRICULAR ARRHYTHMIAS

•Malignant ventricular arrhythmias (VA’s) (Figure Panel A) are seen in patients with inherited chanellopathies and patients with acquired structural heart disease.
•Modulation of sympathetic nervous system1 is often considered in patients with ventricular arrhythmia’s refractory to medical therapy.
•Percutaneous stellate ganglion blockade2 (Figure Panel A and B) has been used as a temporizing measure until more definitive treatment can be instituted.
•Complications associated with percutaneous stellate ganglion block in the pain population include Horner’s syndrome, pneumothorax, hemothorax and vascular injury.
•We present the largest analysis of patient characteristics and outcomes using the national inpatient sample (NIS) looking at the trends of use of percutaneous stellate ganglion blockade and study the rate of complications in patients with VA’s.
