Comparison of programmed electrical stimulation and ambulatory electrocardiographic (Holter) monitoring in the management of ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.


Forty-four patients with primary ventricular fibrillation or recurrent ventricular tachycardia were stabilized on an antiarrhythmic drug regimen before electrophysiologic study and 24 to 72 hours of ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring were performed. The long-term predictive value of these two tests was then compared retrospectively for a 12 to 32… (More)
