INTRODUCTION This study determined whether the presence of nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT) was predictive of clinical events in MADIT-CRT (multicenter automatic defibrillator implantation trial-cardiac resynchronization therapy) patients treated with CRT-defibrillator. METHODS AND RESULTS We analyzed 24-hour Holters for the presence of NSVT. Patients were then stratified by the etiology (ischemic or nonischemic) of cardiomyopathy. The impact of NSVT on heart failure events (HF… CONTINUE READING
