OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) therapy in preventing sudden cardiac death (SCD) in post-infarction patients with advanced left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. BACKGROUND The Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial (MADIT-II) randomized 1,232 post-infarction patients with an ejection fraction of < or =30% to ICD or conventional therapy. In the ICD group, there was a 31% decrease in the risk of total… CONTINUE READING
