OBJECTIVE We sought to assess the impact of myocardial scar burden (MSB) on the association between implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation and mortality in patients with ischaemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) and left ventricular EF ≤ 40%. In addition, we sought to determine the impact of gender on survival benefit with ICD implantation. DESIGN(More)
