Current Management of Ventricular Tachycardia: Approaches and Timing

Current Management of Ventricular Tachycardia: Approaches and Timing Authors: John, Roy M.; Stevenson, William Ventricular tachycardia (VT) in the presence of structural heart disease is associated with sudden cardiac death and warrants prompt attention. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) while highly effective in terminating sustained ventricular arrhythmias and reducing mortality, have no effect on the arrhythmia substrate […]

Changing the Way We “See” Scar: How Multimodality Imaging Fits in the Electrophysiology Laboratory

Changing the Way We “See” Scar: How Multimodality Imaging Fits in the Electrophysiology Laboratory Author: Wokhlu, Anita Substrate characterization is the mainstay of ablation for ventricular tachycardia (VT). Although the use of electroanatomic voltage mapping (EAVM) in the electrophysiology (EP) laboratory has enabled real-time approximation of myocardial scar, it has limitations. This is related to the […]
