Abstract

Development of life-threatening arrhythmia is the main concern in the perioperative period of a patient with LQTS, which significantly increases morbidity and mortality. Specific pre, intra and postoperative measures will reduce the risk of life-threatening arrhythmia up to a considerable level.  We report a successful perioperative management of a cochlear implant in a 2 ½ year old child with LQTS.
