Sixty-five patients underwent surgery for recurrent ventricular tachyarrhythmias. The 32 patients in group 1 underwent simple left ventricular aneurysm resection. The 33 patients in group 2 underwent myocardial resection or incision guided by intraoperative mapping of the electrical activation sequence. The clinical, hemodynamic and angiographic characteristics of the two groups were similar. Although actuarial survival in the two groups was similar through 24 months, late attrition in group 1… CONTINUE READING
