Safety and diagnostic yield of noninvasive ventricular stimulation performed via tiered therapy implantable defibrillators.

Extensive electrophysiological testing is critical for the effective utilization of sophisticated tachycardia detection and termination algorithms available in tiered therapy ICDs. To evaluate the safety and diagnostic yield of electrophysiological testing via noninvasive ventricular stimulation, we performed 294 electrophysiological studies in 154 patients… CONTINUE READING
