There is considerable variability in the reported risk of mortality after appropriate and inappropriate ICD shocks. The aim of our systematic review was to provide a reliable effect size of the association between ICD shock and mortality for both types of therapies. METHODS On the basis of a systematic literature search, 10… CONTINUE READING
