Abstract

We report the case of a 51-year-old patient with Brugada syndrome (BrS) who experienced inappropriate shock due to T-wave oversensing (TWOS) during exercise when the optimal sensing vector was selected based on the automatic analysis by a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD). After selecting another vector during exercise testing, TWOS did not re-occur. Selection of appropriate sensing vector based on analyses under various conditions, including during exercise after S-ICD implantation, should be considered for patients with BrS.
