The antitachycardia pacing ICD: impact on patient selection and outcome.

PMID:  7681565     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
RESULTS: Patient characteristics were similar in the two groups except that the ANT population had a greater male predominance and initially presented with a lower sudden cardiac death incidence (P < 0.05). Cumulative occurrence of first shock was significantly lower in the ANT group up to 24 months of follow-up (28% vs 36%, P < 0.05). ANT group survival from arrhythmic death (99% vs 96%) and all cause mortality (89% vs 94%) was significantly higher at 24 months of follow-up (P < 0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: The addition of antitachycardia pacing to ICD therapy appears to significantly limit the occurrence of first ICD shock without adversely affecting mortality in a patient population similar to those implanted with standard ICDs.
