Proarrhythmia is defined as the aggravation of an existing arrhythmia or the development of a new arrhythmia secondary to antiarrhythmic drug. Proarrhythmic events include drug-induced bradyarrhythmias, atrial and ventricular proarrhythmias. New onset sustained or incessant ventricular tachycardia and torsade de pointes can be life threatening. This article reviews the incidence, aggravating factors, and treatment of proarrhythmia.
