INTRODUCTION Patients with structurally normal hearts (SNH) suffering from ventricular tachycardia (VT) or frequent premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are at low risk of sudden cardiac death. Any treatment ameliorates symptoms without a substantial influence on survival.The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate the health-related quality of life (QoL) of patients with SNH undergoing elective radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of VT or PVCs.
