Recurrent Sustained Ventricular Tachycardia 3. Role of the Electrophysiologic Study in Selection of Antiarrhythmic Regimens
TLDR
This study suggests that serial EPS provides rapid identification of successful antiarrhythmic therapy and can predict in which patients conventional therapy would be ineffective, thereby identifying patients requiring more aggressive modes of therapy.
The Response to Procainamide During Electrophysiologic Study for Sustained Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias Predicts the Response to Other Medications
TLDR
The response to procainamide accurately predicted the response to other conventional antiarrhythmic agents during electrophysiologic study.
Electrode-Catheter Arrhythmia Induction in the Selection and Assessment of Antiarrhythmic Drug Therapy for Recurrent Ventricular Tachycardia
TLDR
It is concluded that drug efficacy trials in patients with recurrent ventricular tachycardia using intracardiac pacing techniques is a rapid and accurate method of selecting effective long-term antiarrhythmic therapy.
