The long-term reproducibility and significance of inducible ventricular arrhythmias were assessed in 21 survivors of a myocardial infarction. Programmed ventricular stimulation performed a mean of 12 +/- 2 days (range 8 to 18) after infarction provoked ventricular fibrillation in 2 patients, sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia in 8 and nonsustained ventricular tachycardia in 11. Patients were restudied using the same protocol a mean of 8 +/- 2 months (range 4 to 11) after infarction… CONTINUE READING
