Abstract

Early VA survivors after MI receiving ICD due to suspected non-reversible arrhythmogenic substrate have high rates of appropriate ICD therapy and mortality. Our ICD implantation practice corresponds well with the AUC. Sustained monomorphic VT and non-ST-elevation MI at presentation predict increased risk for death. Larger prospective studies are necessary to confirm our findings, such as to provide evidence for future ICD guidelines.
