OBJECTIVES This retrospective study was performed to provide data on ventricular tachycardias (VT) with a cycle length longer than the initially programmed tachycardia detection interval (TDI) in patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). BACKGROUND It has been clinical practice to program a safety margin of 30 to 60 ms between the slowest spontaneous or inducible VT and the TDI. METHODS Baseline characteristics of 659 consecutive patients with ICDs were prospectively… CONTINUE READING
