Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0042514

NCI Thesaurus Code: C50802  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Pathologic Function

NCIt Definition: A disorder characterized by an electrocardiographic finding of three or more consecutive complexes of ventricular origin with a rate greater than a certain threshold (100 or 120 beats per minute are commonly used). The QRS complexes are wide and have an abnormal morphology. (CDISC)

CTCAE Definition: A disorder characterized by a dysrhythmia with a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute that originates distal to the bundle of His.

NICHD Definition: A tachycardia originating in the ventricles of the heart.

FDA Definition: An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm with aberrant ventricular excitation, usually in excess of 150 beats per minute.

MSH Definition: An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
