Improved survival with an implanted defibrillator in patients with coronary disease at high risk for ventricular arrhythmia: Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial Investigators.
For primary prevention in asymptomatic patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy and an ejection fraction of less than 30%, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are the best choice, as shown in the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial II (MADIT-II).
Previous studies, such as the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trials (MADIT I and II) and Multicenter Unsustained Tachycardia Trial (MUSTT) have demonstrated the value of ICD therapy in preventing sudden cardiac death, but precisely identifying which patients are at risk of sudden cardiac death remains a challenge for the medical community.
