Abstract

The ILR contributed to the exclusion of a ventricular arrhythmia as a mechanism of an atypical syncope in patients with electrocardiographic BS and the suspension of the ICD implant. Episodes of transient symptomatic bradycardia were the most common findings suggesting the vagal mechanism of symptoms. The use of ILR should be considered in selected patients with atypical syncope and spontaneous or transient Type 1 ECG pattern.
