Ischemic preconditioning, induced by 5-min coronary artery occlusion and 5-min reperfusion, decreased the incidence of ventricular tachycardia and abolished the occurrence of ventricular fibrillation during 30-min ischemia.

Patients with ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation do better if they undergo catheter ablation before receiving an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, according to a study of 107 patients.
Although often confused with a heart attack, cardiac arrest means simply that the heart has stopped beating after developing ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, two types of arrhythmias.
The published primary results showed that treatment with azimilide resulted in relative risk reduction of 47%-57% in the combined end point of total all-cause shocks and symptomatic ventricular tachycardia terminated by antitachycardia pacing (Circulation 2004;110:3646-54).
