Use of myocardial scar characterization to predict ventricular arrhythmia in cardiac resynchronization therapy
EP Europace, 05/24/2012
Fernández–Armenta J et al. – The presence, size, and heterogeneity of myocardial scar independently predict appropriate implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapies in cardiac resynchronization therapy candidates. The ce–CMR–based scar analysis might help identify a subgroup of patients at relatively low risk of sudden cardiac death.
