INTRODUCTION Body surface mapping (BSM) can be used to identify the site of earliest endocardial activation of ventricular tachycardias (VTs). The multielectrode QRS morphology during VT is determined by both the site of earliest activation and the subsequent spread of electrical activation through the ventricles. This study investigated the relationship(More)
INTRODUCTION Survival benefit from ICD implantation is relatively low in primary prevention patients. Better patient selection is important to maintain maximum survival benefit while reducing the number of unnecessary implants. Microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) is a promising risk marker. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the predictive value of MTWA in(More)
BACKGROUND The benefit of implantable defibrillators (ICDs) for primary prevention remains debated. We analysed the implications of prophylactic ICD implantation according to the guidelines in 2 tertiary hospitals, and made a healthcare utilisation inventory. METHODS The cohort consisted of all consecutive patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) or(More)
