BACKGROUND Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is a promising option for patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Patients with HCM can present markedly abnormal electrocardiograms (ECGs), and there are no data on what percentage of patients with HCM fail the prerequisite S-ICD vector screening. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the failure rate of the prerequisite vector screening using 1 or 2 acceptable vectors stratified for risk profile… CONTINUE READING
