Adjuvant xamoterol or metoprolol in patients with malignant ventricular arrhythmia resistant to amiodarone.

In a randomised cross-over study, six patients with recurrent sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) were treated with 3 regimens--amiodarone, amiodarone plus metoprolol, and amiodarone plus xamoterol. All patients had poor left ventricular function and were resistant to multiple drugs. Xamoterol (a partial beta-agonist) was more effective than metoprolol as adjuvant therapy to amiodarone in the control of recurrent sustained ventricular arrhythmias and was not associated with any clinical deterioration of ventricular function. Xamoterol was also more effective than metoprolol for suppression of VT at programmed stimulation and as effective as metoprolol for suppression of VT on exercise. Exercise tolerance was significantly greater during treatment with xamoterol/amiodarone than during treatment with metoprolol/amiodarone or with amiodarone alone.[1]
