Apical 4-chamber view showing markedly dilated right ventricle (RV) and atrium (RA).
Rhythm strip obtained during a pre-syncopal episode. Arrow indicates normal P-wave.
Intracardiac electrocardiographic tracing obtained as arrhythmia was terminated by premature atrial beat (arrow). Leads are I (surface I), II (surface II), V1 (surface V1), HRA 3-4 (high right atrium at sinus node), HIS 3-4 and HIS 1-2 (Bundle of His reco
