AIMS Electrical storm (ES) adversely affects prognosis of patients and may become a life-threatening event. Catheter ablation (CA) has been proposed for the treatment of ES. Our goal was to evaluate the efficacy of CA ablation both in acute and long-term suppression of ES. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty consecutive patients with coronary artery disease (38), idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (5), arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (6), and/or with combined aetiology (1) underwent CA… CONTINUE READING
