This report describes a case of a patient with long QT syndrome (LQTS) with recurrent episodes of torsades de pointes (TdP). Use of biventricular pacing (BiVP) resulted in a shorter QT interval and a shorter T-peak-end interval and prevented further episodes of TdP. These findings suggest that BiVP may be helpful in patients with LQTS and refractory TdP.
