It has been known for several decades that electrical alternans occurs during myocardial ischemia in both clinical and experimental work. There are a few reports showing that this alternans can be triggered into existence by a premature ventricular contraction. Detriggering of alternans by a premature ventricular contraction, as well as pause-induced triggering and detriggering, have also been reported...
