  • Number of Patients: 136
  • Published —
This study assessed the effectiveness and complications of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) placed in patients with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (rapid heart beat; CPVT) who presented with a sentinel event of sudden cardiac arrest (heart attack; SCA) while undiagnosed and therefore untreated.
