The majority of ventricular tachycardias (VTs) occurs in patients with structural heart disease, predominantly coronary heart disease. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are first-line therapy in patients with VT and structural heart disease. In patients who receive an ICD after a spontaneous sustained VT, recurrent VT episodes or an electrical storm are major problems. In addition, in patients with an ICD implanted for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death, 20% will experience… CONTINUE READING
