Sixty patients with recurrent sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) refractory to medical therapy underwent subendocardial resection. There were 52 men and 8 women, ranging in age from 39 to 74 years, all of whom had coronary disease. Each patient had had a prior infarction 1 week to 11 years prior to surgery and 52 had left ventricular aneurysms. The mean ejection fraction was 27%. All 60 patients underwent endocardial resection with or without aneurysmectomy guided by intraoperative and/or… CONTINUE READING
