AIMS Evaluation of cause-specific mortality in a large cohort of unselected implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) recipients. METHODS AND RESULTS Causes of death of consecutive ICD recipients implanted over a 10 year period were analysed. Overall 822 patients (age 63 +/- 11 years, 80% male, EF 34 +/- 14%, secondary prevention 65%) were followed for 43 +/- 30 months during which time 225 patients died (annual mortality 7.6%). Causes of death were cardiac arrhythmic in 16%, cardiac non… CONTINUE READING
