Dr. Smith's ECG Blog: Wide Complex Tachycardia with Fusion and Capture Beats. Not what you think.

TRULY interesting tracing. Barney Marriott used to call the phenomenon whereby a PVC ipsilateral to a sinus beat with BBB conduction resulted in a narrowing of the QRS = “2 Wrongs (ie, BBB + a PVC) may sometimes make a Right” (ie, a QRS complex that is narrower than both the PVC and the sinus-conducted BBB beat). I think the key point for readers is that this uncommon but fascinating phenomenon does not negate the diagnostic value of fusion & capture beats — because we are not dealing with a regular wide tachycardia that lacks P waves — but instead an obvious sinus tachycardia with preexisting LBBB. So the usual conditions for judging “fusion” and “capture” are different — AND, in the presence of a regular wide tachycardia without sinus P waves, finding fusion and/or capture beats still proves that the wide tachycardia is VT.Among the points to emphasize from this wonderful case is the need to use CALIPERS for interpretation of sophisticated arrhythmias. You just cannot interpret complex arrhythmias accurately without calipers (and with just a little practice you’ll find using calipers literally doubles your speed as well as efficiency). I think assessment of this case is made easier if instead of starting with the 4th line (in which you circled the 2nd and 3rd beats) — we instead started with the 1st and 2nd lines on this 5-line rhythm strip. Caliper measurement of all P waves in the 1st (Top) line confirms that ALL P waves are precisely on time. But the 4th beat is narrow and caliper measurement confirms that this 4th beat occurs a little bit early AND is preceded by a shorter PR interval than are all of the sinus-conducted LBBB beats. The ONLY way you can get an earlier beat with a shorter PR interval in the presence of an underlying sinus rhythm is if something else “from below” arises BEFORE the on-time sinus P wave is able to complete conduction to the ventricles. Thus, we can be absolutely certain that the 4th beat in the 1st Line of this rhythm strip must be a PVC. And the ONLY way a PVC can be narrower than the sinus-conducted LBBB beats is if the PVC is ipsilateral to the BBB and cancels out part of the LBBB appearance (ie, “2 wrongs may sometimes make a right” ).Now note that the 8th beat in the 1st Line has a somewhat longer preceding PR interval, and is not quite as narrow as the 4th beat. That’s because this is another ipsilateral PVC that this time manifests a little bit less fusion with the nearly simultaneously occurred LBBB sinus beat (which is why this 8th beat is wider and looks more like the lbbb beats).Now on the 2nd Line of the rhythm strip — we see that the 6th & 7th beats are narrower. This is an ipsilateral ventricular couplet. The 6th beat in the 2nd Line is virtually identical to the 4th beat in the 1st Line of the rhythm strip. And if you follow with your calipers — you’ll see that the next on-time P wave will fall within (NOT before) the 7th QRS complex on this 2nd Line. This means that this 7th beat in the 2nd Line IS the SHAPE of the ipsilateral PVC (ie, there is no fusion occurring for this 7th beat).Bottom Line: This case illustrates a rare but fascinating phenomenon. As per Sherlock Holmes, “When you eliminate the impossible — you may be left with the improbable”. Here we have the improbable but fascinating phenomenon that “2 wrongs may indeed sometimes make a right”.
