Abstract

The authors observed 62 patients who underwent low energy intracardiac atrial defibrillation. Four patients had to interrupt for an induced substernal pain. All patients were observed before the treatment in a double-blind procedure by a rheumatologist. All the patients who had pain had also very active myalgic spots located anteriorly at the level of the chest muscles. The cause of pain was, therefore, probably extracardiac.
