|Abstract:||Cisapride induced QT prolongation with consequent life-threatening arrhythmias including torsades de pointes has recently been documented but is rare. We report the case of a patient who had received permanent pacemaker therapy for complete AV block with symptomatic bradycardia dependent torsades de pointes, but suffered breakthrough torsades during cisapride therapy despite constant pacing.|
