Cardiac arrhythmias occur commonly during liver transplantation surgery. Certain medications commonly used during liver transplantation can trigger ventricular arrhythmias due to recognized or unrecognized prolongation of the QT interval. We herein present a case report of a patient with QT interval prolongation on preoperative ECG who developed repetitive ventricular arrhythmias during liver transplantation. We will explore anesthesia management and how some medications can contribute to triggering an arrhythmia.
