Abstract
AbstractThe prognosis of 149 patients with ventricular tachycardia (n = 108) or ventricular fibrillation (n = 41) was analyzed to assess the importance or the underlying etiology of the arrhythmia. Seventy-three patients (Group I) had a previous myocardial infarction and documented late sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia. Thirty-five (Group II) also had a previous myocardial infarction but had late ventricular fibrillation. There were 41 patients (Group III) without coronary artery disease: 9 patients with right ventricular dysplasia, 26 with idiopathic sustained ventricular tachycardia and 6 with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation. The mean follow-u...
