BACKGROUND Algorithms to reject irregular tachyarrhythmias are available in implantable cardioverter-defibrillator devices to discriminate ventricular tachycardia (VT) from atrial fibrillation (AF). The hazard of underdetection of irregular monomorphic VTs using these algorithms has not yet been fully evaluated. The purpose of this study was to determine the ability of a commonly used stability algorithm to reject AF and to correctly detect VT with a high RR interval variability.
