Abstract

Thus, antitachycardia pacing by this implantable cardioverter-defibrillator effectively and appropriately terminated 91% of hemodynamically stable ventricular tachycardias. Inappropriate device discharges were prevented in some patients by antitachycardia pacing and additional detection algorithms.
