OBJECTIVES The study was designed to develop a simple risk stratification score for primary therapy with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). BACKGROUND Current guidelines recommend primary ICD therapy in patients with a low ejection fraction (EF). However, the benefit of the ICD in the low EF population may not be uniform. METHODS Best-subset proportional-hazards regression analysis was used to develop a simple clinical risk score for the end point of all-cause mortality in… CONTINUE READING
